In Northern hemisphere days are getting shorter, trees are shedding leaves, it’s colder and darker outside. All these are unmistakable signs that winter is on its way. While it may be downright depressing for some people, this gloomy season also has its joys. Winter means holidays are coming and holidays mean generous discounts on awesome smartphones. In fact, pre-holidays deals have already begun. Just last week the Nextbit Robin got its price slashed in half and now another Android smartphone in on sale before holiday fever. This time it’s the Moto G4 Play.
Verizon has just announced that is expanding its prepaid lineup by another affordable phone. Unveiled four months ago the Moto G4 Play isn’t definitely a new device, though it’s still worth your attention if you’re looking for a basic replace phone. Offering low-end specs the phone is now within your reach for $85 without contract, which is $65 cheaper than at Amazon.
Earlier today Amazon has shared the news that they’re going to add another device to its “Prime exclusive” smartphone lineup. The line consist of unlocked phones which undergo a significant discount due to the fact that they display ads of products and services offered by Amazon. The phone in question is the he 4th Generation of the Moto G Play, also known as the Moto G4 Play. Although the device is scheduled to hit the retailer in several days, pre-orders kicked off today.
Motorola is currently having a lot on its plate starting with structural changes and executive reshuffles. That might be the reason why not even one Moto phone has been released so far even though it’s already the end of April. It may change soon, though. According to the latest leaks, Motorola is about to announce two new Moto-branded smartphones. The devices in question are the Moto G4 and G4 Plus and are expected to debut on May 17.
While we still don’t have any specific details concerning the first Lenovo-made Motorola’s phones that are scheduled to debut these year, we do managed to learn a few things about the Moto G 4th Gen. According to the recent leak, the phone will have its premiere sometime in May and most probably arrive in two sizes as images of the Moto G4 Plus has just surfaced the net.
Since the latest updates to the Motorola’s Moto X and G lines have been present on the market for several months now, it’s the highest time for their predecessor to get a significant price cut. Usually sold for something round $299 the 2nd gen Moto X is now within your reach considerably cheaper via Best Buy, a similar Amazon’s offer covers the 2nd gen Moto G whose price has also been significantly discounted.
It seems that recently smartphone makers have been focusing on the lower end sector of the market. It may have something to do with carriers moving away from contracts, holiday season coming up or it may be a pure coincidence, but the fact remains that lately a significant number of affordable Android smartphones has been launched. Earlier today, three new devices made their way to the market through Sprint and landed on the carrier’s pre-paid brands Boost Mobile and Virgin Mobile.
Wouldn’t it be great to choose a new smartphone based only on your brand preference or set of specs? Unfortunately, not everyone can afford to buy a new phone, or any other device for that matter, this way. One of the main factors an average user needs to take into account when searching for a handset is its price. Some time ago, getting yourself a cheap device was basically a guarantee of a disappointing purchase. Luckily for all of us, things have changed and today you can find a great phone at an affordable price. Two of the best options currently worth buying are the OnePlus One and the Moto G.
The 3rd Generation Moto G finally got official at a special event earlier today. Thanks to weeks of intensive leaks and rumors, we knew more or less what to expect, but as it turns out, Motorola had a few surprises up its sleeve anyway. The new Moto G, like its predecessors is still an affordable phone offering a great value for your dollar but it’s also customizable and water resistant, among other improvements.
The first generation Moto G was a very successful device, and so was its successor. Both versions met with warm reception so it’s no wonder that Motorola is about to release 3rd edition. As it’s often the case with popular phones, the Moto G 2015 is not a well kept secret. In fact, the device has been leaking frequently for the last few weeks revealing most of its key specs. The last batch of leaks hints that the handset could be water resistant and be able to survive full water immersion up to 1 meter.
The third generation of the popular Motorola’s cheap smartphones, the Moto G (2015) is right on its way to make its official debut. Rumored to feature only few minor upgrades over its last year’s predecessor, this year generation bring something new to the table. According to the recent leak the phone could be customizable via Moto Maker same way as the company’s flagship Moto X. So far, the Moto Maker service covers only Moto X and Moto 360, which means that the upcoming Moto G would be the very first a mid-range smartphone to offer this feature.
Expected to hit the market later this year the Motorola’s Moto G (2015) has just surfaced online one more time along with photos giving us one of the best looks at the upcoming handset. Dubbed “Osprey” the phone is said to redefine the G series and set new standards for future affordable smartphones. If to believe the pics the new gen of Moto G will feature the well-known oblong camera design and the iconic Moto G dimple.
Motorola’s popular budget-friendly Moto G line may soon get another member. If to believe recent leaks the Moto G 3rd Gen is on its way to make its first public appearance rather sooner than later. Caught in live photos, the phone appears to debut packed with several improvements over its predecessor, including a 13MP camera, 64-bit processor and 5-inch display.
Along with the official premiere of the new Moto X, Motorola presented today the 2nd generation Moto G. The budget friendly device is the updated version of its predecessor that is likely to attract great number of future users. The phones goes on sale today for merely $179 on off-contract offer, no wonder that it is called “the bargain of the year”.
Motorola has kept us on our toes this week. In addition to the Moto E, which is Motorola’s brand new model, the company also announced two new versions of the Moto G – one with 4G LTE connectivity and the other customized in the spirit of Ferrari. We got wind of the Moto G Ferrari Edition allegedly being in the works since April, and now the phone has been unveiled in Mexico.
According to a report from Mexican website Xataka, Motorola has at least three new phones in the works, the Moto G LTE, Moto G Ferrari and Moto E. As you might have guessed from the name, the Moto G LTE and Moto G Ferrari edition will be variants of the modest yet reliable and cheap Moto G released last year. The Moto E, on the other hand, appears to be a completely a new smartphone.
There already have been a dozen or so promotions on the Moto X Phone, and a tad fewer on the Moto G. If you, however, still didn’t get around to buy one of the phones you have another chance at score a discount. Motorola just announced a Friends with Moto program which allows you to grab the flagship Moto X smartphone with a $50 discount and the Moto G 16 GB phone with a $40 rebate. The 8 GB version of the Moto G comes with $30 discount.
A leaked image from last month suggested that the Moto G could be heading to Boost Mobile. And indeed, here it is waiting for you at the carrier’s online store. The phone will cost you just $129.99 and not a penny more, since the shipping is free. If you prefer to actually see a device with your own eyes before you pay for it, you will have to wait until January 20th which is when it will go on sale in Boost Mobile retail stores.
With the Moto G by Motorola proved that it is possible to make a great phone and sell it at affordable price. It is true that the Moto G does not feature any cutting edge technology you will have extremely hard time trying to find a similarly spec’d phone priced at just $179.99. At this price Motorola is selling unlocked Moto G compatible with GSM carriers. Unless you are determined to use your Moto G on AT&T or T-Mobile, you can grab the smartphone even cheaper.
A GSM version of Motorola’s budget-friendly Moto G has been available in the US for a while. The manufacturer is selling the SIM lock free phone via its own website and third-party vendors at price starting at $179. Given the combination of price and the handset’s specs, the Moto G is probably one of the most attractive offerings currently available on the market. A CDMA version will be heading to the stores in the first quarter of 2014 and, as confirmed by an official tweet, will land on Verizon Wireless in pre-paid flavor.
