Unlocked Motorola Moto E (2nd gen) for $90 (3G) or $100 (4G LTE)

Motorola’s rollout of affordable bang for the buck Android phones continues with the second generation of the Moto E, which is currently on sale, GSM unlocked, at Amazon.com, with a limit of three per kind per customer. It is available for $100 4G LTE or $90 in either Global GSM or US GSM. No contract, you own it when your payment clears. You can use it as a Wifi-only device, you don’t have to sign up for a cellphone plan.

The difference however is not just the cellular radios. The 4G LTE model is powered by the Snapdragon 410, while the 3G by the Snapdragon 200. Both come with Android 5.0 (out of the box), with a 4.5-inch 960 x 540 qHD (not to be confused with quad HD), IPS, Gorilla Glass 3, 1GB RAM, 8GB on-board storage, but thankfully it has a microSD card. It takes micro SIM cards.

NOTE: if you are planning to use this with T-Mobile, the update to Android 5.1 removes Band 12 which is necessary for some T-Mobile locations. This was verified by a Motorola representative in the comments of this Amazon review.
