Update, I'm the guy of the previous comment.
In case anyone wondered, I found why the SD card reader stopped working:

One of the connections soldering simply came off. I don't even know how or when. It can be fixed and it's quite easy but I don't have the tools to do so and doing it with a repair shop is expensive.

It's an okay phone if your SD card reader works though. Still, definitely not up to nowadays standards, mainly because of storage limitarions.

    Don't buy even if it's cheap.

    It has been reported, and it has happened to me, that the SD Card slot stops working.

    Now this may have a workaround since if you use ES File Explorer and you have Android 4.4 KitKat, OTG works for reading external devices. This does NOT work on Lollipop though.

    The problem comes that if you buy this phone from a carrier, it will have a locked bootloader, so if it has Lollipop installed you cannot downgrade. There is supposed to be a workaround but it's so risky it's not worth trying.

    So after Google Play services updates, you only have like 1 GB left for all your apps and data.

    If your SD Card slot stops working (which doesn't seem to be that uncommon), this phone pretty much becomes a brick since you can't do anything with such little storage.

    Go for something else.

      the very simple solution to get this phone to work is to turn off discover and you want to when you go to settings you want to add yourself as a developer and it fixes everything.

              Andy, 16 Jan 2020Hi all, I have a moto E first generation. Does anyone know ... moreYes, this is possible. Go to the XDA forums for this device and there are lots of different ROMs including multiple android 8 ones.

                  Hi all, I have a moto E first generation. Does anyone know if there is any way at all to upgrade the os to 6 or beyond? (It's currently stuck on 4.4.4). Many thanks

                                  Not a bargain at any price. Powers off even when battery reads 40% [and if I try to take A PICTURE, even when battery is over 50%]. "Unfortunately", I always get the unfortunately whatever Google app I want at the time has stopped working. Goes into airplane mode for no apparent reason. I'm sure that my lack of tech savvy accounts for some of the problems. And that's exactly why I would discourage anyone looking for that first smartphone to avoid this contraption like the plague.

                                    When you update to Android 5.1 this device becomes a doorstop. The internal memory is too small and you are going to fill it with 3 apps.

                                      This phone is amazing for the price $79.99. I have had zero problems with my phone in three years. I pay $10 a month for service. I love this phone.

                                        now if you purchase the phone from somebody else then don't cry Is something that you should concern about it instead of posting crap regarding the device
