Motorola Moto E 2nd Gen sales recently kicked off and we were eager to get one and put it through its paces. Our in-depth review is already live and you can read all about the new budget smartphone there. The new Moto E packs a slightly bigger 4.5″ qHD display and runs on the modest, but modern, Snapdragon 410 chipset with a quad-core 1.2GHz Cortex-A53 processor, Adreno 306 GPU and 1GB of RAM. It also has a 20% bigger battery capacity at 2,390 mAh and runs on a vanilla edition of Android Lollipop. Naturally, we did our battery life test and we found the Moto E 2nd Gen acing all of our tests. It did great on the 3G call endurance packing enough juice to last almost a day.

All those impressive results led to the final endurance rating of 82 hours, which means you can count on about 3 and a half days if you do an hour each of calls, web browsing and video playback a day. The Moto E (2nd Gen) proved to be quite energy-efficient and will do much better than the Moto’s promise for “all day battery life” for sure.
