As a preamble to this test
A lot of cell phones come out every month, and you get overwhelmed pretty quickly.
New technology or basic model – what’s the difference?The operating system is a matter of taste; on this Moto E (2020) 32 GB, Motorola chose Android.
And now that you know, our tests will let you know if, in terms of features and functionality, this smartphone is right for you.
The design of this Moto E (2020) 32 GB corresponds to an entry-level product.With lesser performance, it does not reach the level of the best.Only its well-placed price is interesting; it can be a temporary choice.

The Moto E (2020) 32 GB, the right choice for surfing the internet?
The issue of mobility is important when it comes to a smartphone.You will use it to make phone calls, but also to surf and search for information on the internet.
That Moto E (2020) 32 GB looks really small.A modest 6.2-inch screen, which on the other hand is easier to fit in a pocket and easier to hold.
Obviously with this size, it is not easy to surf the net.Even less good for watching a movie.The primary use of this phone would be to make calls…
Also note that wifi will be available to accompany you.This allows you to easily have a connection with a comfortable speed.This smartphone has GPS.No more need for a map to get around a city or a country.Effective functionality almost everywhere.
No location, no multiple operator management.You can only have one active plan with this phone.It will force those who have a local package and who bring their phone with them when they travel, to take out the card and put in the one for the country of destination.
It is important to note that this model does not include reinforced glass.No protection against scratches or the shocks of everyday life.It is a good idea to purchase an adaptable screen protector as a complement.Because of its battery, the range of this model is one of the worst.The 3550 mAh will barely be enough to last a day between calls, texts or games.Keep your charger handy.
And since Motorola did not consider it useful to put a fast charge on this model, we will have to wait.Yet it has become almost indispensable, due to the speed at which batteries are now draining.
Analysis of multimedia functions.
More and more of us watch our phones at the expense of our TVs every day.It’s become a handy tool.The same goes for listening to music.Thanks to the ever-increasing access to networks, and with easy-to-use applications, it has become very simple to watch a streaming movie (Netflix, YouTube or Disney) on a phone screen.Careful, that doesn’t mean any smartphone will do.
Unsurprisingly, this model is not really made for multimedia.He’s at the bottom of our ranking.It’s hard to watch a video.The resolution is low: 720 x 1520.It is rather advisable to listen to music.
The on-board technology at the display level is the LCD IPS.The light of the backlight varies according to the orientation of the pixels allowing a wider viewing angle.
For the audio part, Motorola wanted to do well.You have an input for the 3.5mm plug of your headphones.
Using its Bluetooth functionality, you can pair your phone with all the devices in your home (speakers, TV…).The sound result is of a good level.
On the sound side, we find that there are no stereo speakers.
Motorola’s smartphone: a good choice for making video calls?
Games are performance consuming.Games, but also applications require batteries.To play and have a smooth picture, you need to have the CPU and GPU at its best.In short, technology and the latest generation of components provide better playability.
In the end, we found that the power of this Moto E (2020) 32 GB is below its competitors.The Qualcomm SDM632 Snapdragon 632 (14 nm) processor is an older generation.The colors are medium and the images are not fluid.
As far as RAM is concerned, this model is lightweight to say the least.This model has 32 GB, which is low.Knowing that some users need more space, Motorola has provided a free space for an extension.
Please note that in intensive use, the battery may not hold.The result is at the bottom of our ranking.The power of 3550 mAH will require you to recharge during the day.
Performance and good display were expected for the possible applications of this model.unfortunately, it is at a very low reading comfort level.Its entry-level design with a smaller-than-average screen gives a disappointing result.The precision of the image, the colours; so many elements that will limit your desire to read on this phone.
Finally, it should be noted that NFC (contactless payment) is not possible with this smartphone.
The tool to make photos, movies?
The quality of smartphones allows you to take pictures as well as many cameras.The reason being related to the millions of pixels they are equipped with.Other important criteria must be taken into account, such as zoom, HDR function, Flash Led, Panorama mode.Being able to retouch the obtained photos is appreciated.Motorola has long been designing smartphones with top quality photo sensors.
It’s a surprise from Motorola.There is thus only one lens, to be installed on this model.
The resolution of this model is not very efficient.A definition in 13 Mp, which is necessarily less good than on top-of-the-range models.We do not recommend this device to anyone who regularly selfies with their smartphone.So photo retouching is not exceptional.This Moto E (2020) 32 GB allows you to take pictures, but will not restore the brightness or colors.
This device contains only 32 GB of storage space; less than most.That means you’ll have to make choices between videos, photos and applications.It will be necessary to transfer your contents to other backup spaces very quickly.
What about the Moto E (2020) 32 GB?
Our analysis showed that this Moto E (2020) 32 GB wasn’t made for all purposes.With lesser performance, it does not reach the level of the best.In the end, it’s a second choice in addition to your main smartphone.
