In recent times Android has emerged as the major platform for mobile OS. Though Android devices run perfectly out of box, but people are always interested in rooting their Android device(s). Rooting in layman’s term means giving full access to the core system files of Android, mostly like giving access of a Superuser. Rooting is kind of “sudo” command when compared to Linux OS or you can think of it as giving administrative rights to any program in Windows.
After rooting your Android device, you can expect endless possibilities. After rooting your device, you can edit system files, change core theme, add very useful functionality and core features, just to name a few. We are doing a comprehensive guide to root your new, beloved, budget friendly, Motorola Moto E.
Motorola has recently launched its most anticipated budget smartphone Moto E, after big success of Moto G and Moto X in India. Moto X was in the league of high-end, feature-packed, Android smartphones. Moto G was a decent Android device with most of the features that you can expect in the sub-200$ price range in the market. Moto E has been launched specifically as a budget friendly device which can disrupt the smartphone market in the developing countries like India. The phone comes with a combination of latest Android 4.4 (Kitkat) and hardware specs that cannot be matched with any other phone in that budget range.
In this article TechyLab is going to review Moto E from the eyes of a real-world user who is more concerned with the performance and usability, rather than the price range. The reviewer had Samsung Galaxy Ace, Nexus S, Nexus 4 and has been fiddling with Moto G off late. Naturally, at some point you can expect to see comparison with all these phones which also were exceptional in specs and performance.
