It may seem the world around us has gone a bit nutty but there are some normal things still happening. Motorola has just announced two new mid-tier smartphones, the moto g fast and the moto e. Motorola has been decently well with budget-based and mid-tier devices so this makes sense for them to do.
Since these are mid-tier smartphones, we’re not expecting flagship specs and performance from them but that doesn’t mean they’re not capable. Over the past two years, mid-tier devices have actually gotten better and better and most users will be perfectly happy with what they have to offer.
Here are some quick specs and features of the moto g fast and moto e as provided to us by Motorola:
