Qualcomm promotes Motorola's Moto E
It’s not unusual for Qualcomm to directly promote smartphones that are powered by it chipsets. However, most of the handsets that the company is promoting are high-end, impressive models. So we were a bit surprised to see Qualcomm posting a video (embedded below) that showcases the low-end Motorola Moto E, which is available to buy since May.

Just like Motorola, Qualcomm says that the Moto E is “perfect for travelers and first-time smartphone users” - and we couldn’t agree more. Priced at only $129 (off contract), the Moto E runs Android 4.4 KitKat, and is powered by a dual-core 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 CPU paired with 1GB of RAM - thus being quite fast for its class.

The 4.3-inch (540 x 960 pixels) screen of the Moto E doesn’t provide a high ppi density, but first time smartphone users can’t complain about that. The new handset also features a 5MP rear camera, 4GB of expandable internal memory, splash-resistant coating, and a 1,980 mAh battery. For more about the smartphone, check out our Motorola Moto E review.

The Moto E is truly one of the greatest low-end phones ever...

No knocks against the E on hardware value for money, but it is also important to note that it is rated as one of the very worst phones available when it comes to radiation.

The Moto E SAR rating is right up near the Federal limit. Unless you want to fry your brain and reproductive organs, I would personally stay away from the "E".

You may save a little cash, but that little bit of cash will never pay to fix the problems that you may get from this phone if you are susceptible to cell phone cancer.

Good point. The telecoms and device makers conspired to get rid of the SAR labeling requirements, so most people don't even know they are getting fried from the rads.
