    Basically I'm pretty happy with everything about the Moto E aside from the lack of removable battery and flash. I would pay another €10-20 for these features. I've considered getting an external flash but to get a decent one I may as well be getting the G. Problem with the G is it costs more, is larger, and has worse specs.

    Is there anything similar that offers similar specs? I'm particularly impressed by the battery life of the E.

    Hi, just trying to help, but for now all I can think is if you can find a Moto G 1st Gen lte, or a Moto x 1st Gen. I'll reply later if I think of something else. I hope this helps.

    There are two versions of the Moto G 1st Gen one has lte the other doesn't. I would try to suggest more phones, but phones really vary by country. What specs are you looking for, what's your budget, and what country are you in?. I'll try my best.

    Is it worth paying the little bit extra for the Moto G 2nd gen then?

    this depends if it not having lte bothers you. Yes, it does have better specs, but that's it's only downfall. That's why I linked you to the Moto G lte 1st Gen. But if you wish to buy it locally it isn't a bad phone at all it just has no lte that I know of. I hope I've helped,
    Anthony.

    I picked up the Moto E and I'm very happy with it. I actually find the camera very good, even without the flash it can be quite good in low light conditions, but there are times when it can't focus and that's really troublesome.

    My Mom has a Moto E that I use from time to time. A suprisingly snappy phone and good value for the price.
    The Moto G line has some good things going for it also, but more expensive, and depends what you're looking for.

    Thanks for the feedback and glad you got it sorted out to find what works for you.
    Enjoy your phone!

    I really do need one of those external flashes though. i've been using a light up lego wonderwoman keychain which only vaguely works. gonna pick one up.
