Having taken over the Motorola Mobility, Google started producing smartphones with reasonable prices to regain the lost market share of the company. Moto X, the first flagship from the Google-owned Motorola, became very popular. After that, the OEM came with a mid-range phone the Moto G which also succeeded in the market. Later, they introduced another device in the budget phone category.
Now that we already have the 2nd. gen Moto X and Moto G available for a quite a while and company is now owned by the Chinese tech giant Lenovo, a new avatar of the Mote E has been released too. The Moto E 2015 is again a low-priced smartphone with pretty decent specifications for its price tag.
Moto E 2015 comes with a locked bootloader but it can be easily unlocked via the method provided on the official Motorola portal. An unlocked bootloader means that you can easily root the phone and flash a custom recovery using Fastboot as soon as it’s is available. So, if you already got the new Moto E or plan to buy the phone, it’s very likely that you would unlock the bootloader to unlock the full potential of your device.
