There still are lots of cellphone users here and abroad that haven’t yet switched to smartphones, and Motorola is hoping to finally lure them over.

Earlier this month, the company unveiled the Moto E, the latest in its Moto series of phones. The device looks a lot like the flagship Moto X, which Motorola released last year. But it’s smaller and — more importantly — cheaper.

The phone costs just $ 130. That’s it. That’s not the subsidized price and not what you pay if you sign a two-year contract.

The gadget delivered clear voice calls, delivered my text messages just fine and provided me with a quick Internet connection when I surfed the Web or used apps such as Facebook.

The Moto E turned out to be speedier than I expected. With no way to connect to high-speed 4G LTE networks, the Moto E is relegated to running on the 3G networks of years past. I tested it using T-Mobile — but it works with all U.S. carriers — and it performed very well. Don’t get me wrong. The Moto E is not nearly as fast as an iPhone 5s or a Galaxy S5, but its speed never frustrated me.
