    This is what Motorola has up their sleeve for next week. The above pic is supposedly the Moto E which is likely to debut at Motorola's May 13th press event. This pic is likely very legit as it showed up briefly on Motorola Mexico's Facebook page. What you see in the photo is the Moto G on the left and the Moto E on the right.

    The most intriguing thing of note about this pic is that it looks like the Moto E doesn't have a front facing camera. If this is indeed the case, then that must have been one of the features Moto decided to shave off in order to get the costs down for this ultra-affordable smartphone. It seems like a smart move from Motorola to ditch this option to lower costs for folks who may never even use the feature.

    What do you guys think? How often do you use the front camera for selfies or video chats?

    Rarely if ever do I use the front camera, so I wouldn't mind saying goodbye to that feature. If it turns out to be reasonably priced, I will probably upgrade the missus.

    i think the front facing camera is key.
    Selfies for that crowd.
    and for me using it to make hangouts with the family when im gone.

    I think a front facing camera is one thing they should not skimp on

    I just read the specs on this device, Motorola is going for a lower cost device than the G with the E, maybe it is entry. 1.2 Dual core Snapdragon, 1GB RAM, 4.3 screen, 4GB storage (up to 32gb external SD storage), 1,980 mAh battery, and 5mp camera. The price all tough hasn't been officially announced has been rumored to sub-one hundred.

    That's exactly what this phone is made for... This phone is made for that market of cell phone purchasers that buy those old claim shell dial phones with no smartphone features. The "E" is low cost budget minded with not too many features that is meant to attract the not so savvy cell phone buyers and to put them into the option of buying a smartphone. These not so savvy cell phone buyers are not interested in selfies nor do they know what they are or how to use them, setting their email is a challenging enough task as it is, and showing them how to get it, read it, and delete it is enough work as it is. The young people are not even going to look at this phone, no front camera on to the "G" and perhaps the "G Cinema"....

    I've never used my ffc to take a selfie, but have used it a few times to video chat, so I wouldn't want my next device to be without one.
    There was a member on our S4 sister forum last week who referred to her ffc as the "selfie camera". I'll admit it took me a second, and then I was like oh ok, she's talking about the front facing camera. Doh! :what: lol
    So yeah, I'm not a fan of the "selfie", but then I'm not a youngster anymore so there's that. :D

    Maybe I used my selfie once or twice. My wife, perhaps 50 times a day.
