The rear camera is a 13 MP lens with f/2.0 aperture, and dual-LED flash. The front camera is a 5MP at f/2.2, both shooters with a bunch of advanced features. Just like the Moto X, the Moto G also offers hefty customization options.
New Motorola Moto E
The second gen Moto E also comes with Android 5.0 Lollipop operating system out of the box. It comes with 2 variants, an LTE and a 3G-only one which differs in such way:

The battery of the Moto E is at 2390 mAh capacity. It has 5 MP rear camera with f/2.2 aperture, and a VGA front snapper. It supports Micro-SIM. It doesnt have NFC, and is obviously on the budget-tier among the three.
What we are excited among these 3 new Motorola Moto smartphones, is the flagship Moto X. It has promising specifications, with the correct price-point, I honestly would say that it might be able to beat the competition from other high-tier smartphones that are locally available in the PH for my personal choice.
