In developing markets like India, there's a lot of competition in the low-end ...

We came across a very enlightening thread over on Motorola Forums where they have clarified how to go about using your Moto ...

Contrary to what Motorola has informed us (and the world), the Moto E seems to support microSD cards larger than 32GB. We popped in our Sandisk UHS-1 64GB microSD card and were able to play videos, music and load data files off of it just fine on the Moto E. Here's the Storage section in Settings confirming the same. Sadly, Android Kit Kat has limited the uses of a microSD card. All apps don't allow you to ...
