I see on phonearena mention of 1GB RAM, but on BB it shows as 2GB RAM. Dual core CPU (Atom), only 8GB storage.... but with MicroSD it seems, so it's all fine. Average screen (at this price range) and quite a few modern features. I think it's fine for $47, easy to unlock
They go like hot cakes for $79 on eBay unlocked

This is a 720p, 5" screen. The Moto E is a 540p 4.5" screen.

With that being said, the Snapdragon 410 in the Moto E is a MUCH better CPU than the old style Atom in this phone (if you see a 2 as the first number - Z2560, it's the old version), expect iffy performance, particularly if you like playing games.

Moto E is a great phone for the price. Only drawbacks for me are the lack of a flash for the camera (or flashlight), and lack of removable battery. Camera is mediocre, and screen is a bit smaller, but faster than Galaxy S4s, which still sell for 3x as much.

I will have to give the ASUS a try, as it does have a built-in flash, though battery is not removable, which remains a must for me (My S6 is dead by 2pm if I don't recharge.) Good review at http://www.androidcentral.com/asu...-2e-review.

Either way, it's great to have a backup phone around for when you break or lose your phone. For $30-$50, it's a no-brainer.

This phone has is a better choice than the Moto E for one to use outside the US, as it has 3G bands 850 / 900 / 1900 / 2100. If you plan on using the phone in the US with T-Mobile, the Moto E is a better choice as it has 3G band 1700, which they still use.

AT&T and GSMArena both list the phone as having 1GB of RAM, so I'm guessing Best Buy has it wrong.

$50 isn't bad, but several reviews complain about the stock ROM, and there's currently no way to load custom ROMs on this device.

I would say the Moto E is a better value, and better overall.

Moto E. Motorola makes great phones, even at the low end. Take a look at the reviews for both and then decide. It should be clear.

I don't like the Moto E because the GPS seems to be buggy. I need that to work well.

I got one of these for my mother to replace her old Gen1 Moto G. She seems to like it and it works great. The 5" screen is nice for her older eyes as well. The skin isn't horrible, but I prefer stock Android.

You guys have to remember, its a $50 dollar phone... Expect it to not compete with the Galaxy S7.... I played with with Moto E for a bit waiting for my Moto X and it's not that great either, with its smaller screen, no expansion, no flash, etc.. It didn't impress me at all compared to the 2e. Give it a try, it's only $50 bucks.

I heard you can call ATT and have them unlock them for you. But was wondering if I have to wait for sometime before doing that or can I do it instantly !

It's the right comparison, but as you can see there's a lot of conflict given the balance of differences.

If you're looking a for a temporary/transient use device for right now the Asus is probably a better pick.

If you're looking for a daily driver in the $50 range the Moto E is probably a better choice unless one of the many limitations (relative to the Asus) listed above is a deal-killer. That doesn't make the Asus a better choice, but probably suggests that you're better off budgeting for more phone.

Given the amazing refurbs available around $100 it's easy to get hilariously nitpicky about $50 handsets.

Good luck!
