In the market for a low-cost, generously-sized-but-not-ginormous mid to high-end Android smartphone with no contractual obligations? Then the Moto G is hands down the best option, going for $180 outright and SIM-free via Motorola’s website and Amazon.
Or you can save even more and score it through Verizon or Best Buy with Big Red prepaid plans. You’ll still not be tied down to a 24-month carrier agreement, though one restriction is unavoidable, as you can’t exactly handpick the network on which to use the handheld.
Small proverbial price to pay as the actual price bar is lowered to an incredible $99.99. Again, completely contract-free. But hurry, as inventory may be low, albeit at the time of this writing BB and Verizon promise 2 to 3 business days delivery.
Mind you, the Moto G is on paper worth twice, maybe thrice the 100 clams, being one of a couple non-Nexus devices to run Android 4.4 KitKat. A close to stock version too, plus it packs quite the punch, thanks to a quad-core 1.2 GHz Snapdragon 400 CPU and 1 GB RAM.
Oh, and did I mention its 4.5-inch IPS LCD panel boasts 1,280 x 720 pixels resolution, otherwise known as HD? Amazeballs!
