With Mothers Day just around the corner then Fathers Day following shortly after, I find that it is time to find mom and dad gifts that will be of use to them. With my parents, especially my dad, technology can still be something quite foreign to them. My mom is a little more up to speed with things, but when it comes to their phones, well my mom has a smartphone that was one of the first released years ago, and my dad still has a flip phone that is quite outdated. So when I was sent the Motorola Moto E to review, I knew that this phone would make for the perfect gift to give mom and even dad for Mother’s Day and Father’s Day this year!
I think the biggest obstacle that my parents have when it comes to deciding not to upgrade or change what they have, is having to learn new technology. My sister and I both have tried explaining that it is not that hard and that they should not be scared to try new things, but they are sorta set in their ways. I have found though, that when I do come across products that can make that change a little easier, they are more willing to try it than leave it on a shelf somewhere and never look back. So when I saw that the Moto E is made with new smartphone users in mind, I was excited to check it out and share with not only my parents but also with you, my readers!
I like the big display that this phone has, allowing those apps to be easy to navigate. There is also built in protection, helping to keep it safe from spills, scrapes, and smudges! I also like that even though this phone is made to be a simple one to use and navigate for a smartphone, it still has a fast quad core processor with 4G LTE, so they can go back and forth through apps without slowing down the phone, plus I like that the latest version of Android OS Lillipop is already installed! Oh, and when it comes to the battery life, one thing I think that not only my parents dread dealing with, but anyone I know dreads, is having to recharge their phones several times throughout the day. So I can really appreciate that it has a battery life that can last up to one full day!
Then when it comes to the camera, there are 2 cameras, one on the front and one on the back, which can go from one camera to the other with the flip of the wrist! With the camera, they can not only take photos to share with family and friends, but also take video, those fun panoramic photos, plus effortless selfies if they choose! And I like that I can get both of my parents their own Moto E phones, because even with all of these features, these phones are made to be affordable. In all, making the Moto E from Motorola, the perfect gift to get mom and dad this year for Mother’s Day and even for Father’s Day!
Product received, thank you to Motorola as well as the PR for supplying me with a product for this review, all opinions are my own.
