However, if you're really on a budget, the Moto E is absolutely for you. The Moto E sports a decent quad-core processor, 4G LTE and Android Lollipop in a small package for only $149. The screen is bigger than the original Moto E at 4.5-inches, but sadly is the same small 960 x 540 resolution. So it won't look as good as others in our list, but it's a lot cheaper. This years Moto E doesn't have dual front-facing speakers like the original, but it has 4G LTE and the same low price.

The Moto E 2015 runs Android 5.1 Lollipop, and has more than enough to offer for budget-minded shoppers.  It could see Android 6.0 but Motorola received some bad press for saying they wouldn't update it to Android M. If you have to, get one, otherwise spend $30 more and grab the Moto G, you'll be glad you did. That or get the Moto G4 Play.
