Its very stable for me too. Using TWRP App v9, but had trouble installing 3.0.2, then went with 2.7.1 and installed without any issue and then OpenGapp-Micro. I had to reinstall TWRP and Chrome through PlayStore afterward. Last I added Busybox and Advance Power Menu [Root].
> my phone hangs 3-4 times in a day
The phone might be preoccupied with other background services. This might be a direct side effect of the phone having low computation capacity and bare minimum memory space and therefore slow memory allocation/management. Resulting with less than stella performance.
Q: When you are experiencing this "hanging" problem. Does it eventually get out of "hang" state if you give it a bit more minutes and without any additional inputs or reboot?
If hanging problem persist - #1 Perform a full app/data backup. #2 Group all none essential and removable apps into three group. Group (A) Highest priority. (B) Medium priority and (C) Low priority. #3 Remove one group at a time, then spend a day or two testing and using the phone with each group configuration (e.g. A+B, B+C, Only C, etc). Observe each load on how it is impacting the normal operation of the phone. Observes it's behavior in an attempts to pinpoint and identify the exact application(s) that is contributing to your hanging issue.
If it was my phone, (without saying, perform a full backup) I'll remove all removable none essential applications. Then I will wipe the phone from within Recovery (e.g. TWRP). First I will reinstall SuperSU app. Then over the week, I will install one group of apps at a time, to observes its behavior.
Personally, this is my "go out jogging" phone; being small, light, FM, A-GPS, accelerometer, camera and cheap looking doesn't draw attention. The battery performance even out perform my other HTC M7. I have very minimal application installed. CatLog, LiveBoot, Advance Power Menu and GappMicro and latest updates.
P.S: Stay away from Facebook apps on Moto E, it is a very taxing application even if it isn't running.
Hope this help.
Thanks for the reply. I was also trying to find out why the phone hangs. What I have found is that the phone does not hang on Stock ROM but hangs on CM13, AOSP ROM and slim ROM i.e. on MM even if the apks are bare minimum. Earlier I was running many games including many apks on stock ROM and when I shifted from stock to MM, it started hanging. To reduce hanging problem I checked all the above ROMs but hanging did not stopped.
I have also reduced the number of apks installed on my phone. Currently I am using FB lite apk, whatsapp, ES explorer, email, apks2sd, busybox, kernel auditor, maps, mxplayer, opera, paytm, twitter, ACR phone & sound recorder & xender along with gapps nano pack.

I don't know how it happens, but the led now don't stay on during the charge. Thanks for your help.
