Motorola has released its Moto E2 back in February 2015, while the Moto E3 2016 is expected to be released in August 2016. Today we will compare these two devices and tell you what has changed.


The Moto E2 has an IPS LCD display of 4.5-inch that supports a resolution of 960×540 pixels at 245 ppi and it’s protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3. On the other hand, the Moto E3 comes with a bigger IPS LCD display of 5-inch that supports a resolution of 1280×720 pixels at 294 ppi and it’s protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3. The successor has a more minimalist design, featuring a curved plastic body and a new camera module with a LED flash. The Moto E2 has a surrounding plastic band covering the microSIM and microSD card slots.

Processors, Graphics Cards & RAM

The Moto E2 has been released in two variants of chipsets, processors and graphics cards, as follows:

– Chipset: Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 or Qualcomm Snapdragon 410
– Processor: quad-core Cortex A7 CPU clocked at 1.2 GHz or quad-core Cortex A53 CPU clocked at 1.2GHz
– Graphics Card: Adreno 302 or Adreno 306
– RAM: 1GB of RAM.

The Moto E3 is expected to feature a Mediatek chipset, a quad-core CPU clocked at 1GHz and 1GB of RAM (unfortunately we don’t have any information about the graphics card that it will support).


Both devices come with an internal storage of 8GB which you can expand up to 32GB using a microSD card.


The Moto E2 sports a primary camera of 5MP that features geo-tagging, autofocus, HDR, panorama and a secondary VGA camera. On the other hand, the Moto E3 has a better primary camera of 8MP that features autofocus, geo-tagging, HDR, panorama and a secondary camera of 5MP.


Both handsets are powered by non-removable batteries, but the Moto E2 is smaller, so it settles for a 2390 mAh battery, while the E3 has a larger screen and a faster processor, so Motorola has equipped it with a bigger battery of 2800 mAh.
