We’ve seen some crazy deals go down for the widely popular Moto G smartphone, but nothing comes close to the $70 price put on the handset by Amazon. The phone is being offered with a Verizon pre-paid connection, which means that it’s the CDMA model and might not work on GSM networks if you’re thinking about switching carriers in the future.
A prepaid service means that you won’t have to sign up for a contract. What’s worth mentioning is that the 8GB version of the handset is being offered at the said price. Also, this model doesn’t have 4G LTE support. The smartphone is Motorola’s most successful launch till date and it has been well received in numerous locations around the globe.
The company unveiled a 4G LTE model which also packs a microSD card slot, priced at $219 and a cheaper version of the phone that’s known as the Moto E, has gone on sale in select locations. The next best deals would be from US Cellular where the device is tagged at $79.99 after a discount, while Boost Mobile has it listed at $99.99 off contract. The Moto G comes with the latest version of Android and it offers a mid-range experience at a very affordable price. You get a quad core processor, a 5MP HD camera and an HD display amongst others.
Here are the phone’s key features:
– Android 4.4.2 KitKat
– 4.5-inch HD IPS touchscreen w/ Gorilla Glass 3
– 1GB RAM, 8GB/16GB storage options
– 5MP rear camera
– 2070mAh battery
– Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, GPS, GLONAAS, Bluetooth 4.0, HSPA+
The deal on Amazon for the Moto G on Verizon Pre-paid is being reported by Android Central and the pricing looks to be permanent, but we wouldn’t take any chances. Head over to this link to get the smartphone off-contract for just $70.
