Lenovo Moto E3 is one of the best smartphones ever, but not among the top of the range. If you look at other phones in this range, Lenovo Moto E3 is pretty good. Of course, this brand is characterized by low-end devices, but they have such an affordable price that everybody can buy it. However, the devices in this brand have a common problem, or at least most of them. Performance is never as good as it should be, both for low-level hardware components and for the Android operating system that is fragmented. The hardware resources are limited. Manufacturers have been unable to optimize the OS for such a poor hardware. This can create problems in everyday use. The problems are not just limited to the days when the use is heavy.  can be a problem in everyday use, and not just with heavier and resourceful applications.

Unfortunately, like the most phones in this price range, Lenovo Moto E3 doesn’t have a very good hardware. It is not the lowest quality hardware on the market, but still it lefts way too much to be desired. The processor is a quad core, and it is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 that has a maximum frequency of 1.2 Ghz. The amount of RAM is 1 GB, while the internal storage is 8 GB, but the advantage is that it can expand with a micro SD up to 128 GB. Of course, this is a low-end hardware segment, but it is to be said that Lenovo and Motorola are among the best manufacturers in terms of optimizing their devices. They create mid-range, entry level devices. This device can always be fluid in its user interface, thanks to the fact that it is very light, being very close to a stock experience. As long as you are limited to single apps and normal navigation you will have no problems. The important thing is to not use a lot of applications at the same time and to avoid playing heavy games. What a turn off!

The Lenovo Moto E3 battery has a capacity of 2800 mAh. This is capacity will be considered low for a top of the range phone, but, for an entry level phone it is really is a lot. And if that’s not enough, it’s also well-optimized, so if you buy this device, you’ll also have a good degree of autonomy compared to most entry levels that you can find today in the market. Thanks to this battery, even if you use your device intensively, you can still get to the end of the day with some residual charge still left. However, if you use it moderately, the battery will almost last you two days. In the stand by mode, this device consumes very little battery. It can even last you 4 or 5 days if you constantly keep the screen off. Despite its autonomy, the display is also great, because it is HD and has a good level of detail in addition to good colors, so it exceeds the competition.Good construction quality is also to be mentioned. Although it is not made of metal, it still provides good impact resistance and has a robust design.

The price of Lenovo Moto E3 is one of the main attraction of this phone. It is available on Amazon for 133 USD. The cost is pretty low, and there are only a few devices in this range that offer this price-quality ratio. This is why this phone is a recommended purchase, despite its hardware quality. Unfortunately, this phone can not be found in many online and physical stores at present, and this is because it has been not been as successful as its predecessor.
