The new Moto E3 Power has come to the Indian mobile market recently to add to the fiery competition of the very capable budget smartphone segment. The new Moto E3 Power is the latest member in the highly popular Motorola Moto E series of smartphones. As the company was taken over by the Chinese tech major Lenovo, the latest generation Moto E3 Power does not bear the Motorola brand name anymore and has added another feather to the charm of the original low-cost Moto E3. The newly launched Moto E3 Power is the third generation avatar of the Moto E, which was first launched in India back in the year 2013 and charmed all the Indian smartphone lovers with its neat design, great performance and quality along with incredible low price tag.
The new Moto E3 Power is being touted for its superb battery backup and thus the suffix ‘Power’ in its name. The device which was unveiled a couple of months ago and went on sale in China has finally come to the Indian mobile market. The smartphone has been very affordably priced at just Rs 7,999 for the Indian market in order to enhance the smartphone experience of the budget-segment buyers of this country. The new low-cost smartphone from Lenovo has gone on sale and is exclusively available exclusively on the online retail shop Flipkart. The company also offered a special introductory offer only on the first day of its market sale, which came with the inclusion of a free 32 GB microSD card and the price being slashed to only Rs. 7,000. Although the first day introductory price is not available anymore, you can still get the free microSD card on purchasing the new Moto E3 Power.
Now let us take a look at the newly launched Moto E3 Power, to see how different it is from its previous generation models and how it justifies it’s ‘power’ name:
Build, Design & Display
All Moto devices are known for their tough build quality and nice feel in the hand, and the new Moto E3 Power is no different. It feels solid and tough along with a neat and clean design. The rounded off edges and the back panel offer a good and comfortable hold on the device.

Hardware & Software
Under the hood, the new Moto E3 Power comes equipped with a Quad Core MediaTek MT6735P chipset that has been clocked at the speed of 1 GHz. The processor gets the support of a good 2 GB of RAM. This is to ensure that the device offers smooth and comparatively stutter free performance even while multitasking and playing high-end games.
The smartphone runs on the latest Android v6.0 Marshmallow operating system, offering all the attest benefits of this OS. Users can also enjoy the neat and clean stock Android Marshmallow OS that the phone offers in order to get the pure Android experience without any junk apps.

So, no compromise in terms of cameras even when the device is just a budget segment product.
Storage & Connectivity
In E3 Power comes with and onboard memory of 16 GB which is good for any average users in this segment. Moreover, the device offers the flexibility of expanding the memory to up to 32 GB by proving a microSD card slot. What more?

The new smartphone comes with all the modern network and connectivity options. The handset supports 4G, 3G, Bluetooth v4.0, Wi-Fi, GPS and microUSB port.
The Moto E3 Power got its name from the company’s claim of it offering excellent battery life. The device draws its juice from a Li-ion battery pack with the capacity of 3,500 mAh. So, long battery life is one of the key buy points of this new mobile phone and it should keep regular users happy with the same. Considering all the aspects such as screen size and under the hood specifications, the powerful 3500 mAh capacity battery should offer remarkable backup time, which could be a great attraction for the buyers of the budget smartphones in the market.
Like the previous iterations of the Moto E, the latest Moto E3 Power is also a quality product which can be termed as an all-rounder of a budget smartphone model that the buyers can’t go wrong with. It has good sturdy and neat design, nice screen quality, good quality cameras, latest stock Android Marshmallow OS right out of the box and long battery life. All these together should keep any average low-cost smartphone buyer very pleased with overall performance. Moreover, the Moto E3 Power is also an excellent choice for all those buyers who wish to go for reputed brands only, but also don’t wish to spend a lot on a new model. However, having said everything, the market competition is really tough and we do see great products with very low price tags. So, considering this aspect and the not so powerful processor of the Moto E3 Power, we can’t really conclude that it is an overall powerful device. Nevertheless, the new Moto E3 Power is a really great smartphone to go for, especially if you don’t wish to compromise much on anything and boast about owing a coveted brand, while also paying just under Rs. 8k.
