Agree to lockscreen ads, and you can buy the Moto G4 and BLU R1 HD at a discount from Amazon Prime
Are you an Amazon Prime customer? If so, you probably have enjoyed two-day delivery on items ordered from Amazon, along with access to a library of movies and television shows to stream. And you can also wrangle discounts on a couple of new Android handsets, the Motorola Moto G4 and the BLU R1 HD. Starting today, both handsets are getting a $50 haircut. But there is a catch. In exchange for saving $50, buyers will be forced to view personalized ads on the lockscreen of each phone.

Both the Moto G4 and BLU R1 HD will ship on July 12th when both units are due to be released. The Moto G4 is equipped with a 5.5-inch display and carries a 1080 x 1920 FHD resolution. The Snapdragon 617 chipset can be found under the hood containing an octa-core 1.5GHz CPU and the Adreno 405 GPU. 2GB of RAM is inside along with 32 GB of native memory. A 128GB capacity microSD slot is available for those seeking additional storage. A 13MP camera adorns the back of the unit, and a 5MP front-facing camera snaps selfies and handles video chats. A 3000mAh battery provides the power, and Android 6.0 is pre-installed. The unit is unlocked and works with AT&T and T-Mobile in the states. The discounted price is $149.99, not including an additional $25 that is taken off the price at checkout for a limited time.

The BLU R1 HD features a Gorilla Glass 3 protected 5-inch curved display with a 720 x 1280 HD resolution. The MediaTek MT6735 SoC is under the hood offering a quad-core 1.3GHz CPU. Buyers can choose from the version containing 1GB of RAM with 8GB of native storage, or go for the model with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of native storage. A 64GB capacity microSD slot is on board for those needing additional memory. On back is an 8MP camera with an aperture of f/2.0, and a wide-angle 5MP selfie shooter is found on the front of the device. The latter has its very own flash. The unlocked handset will work on AT&T and T-Mobile in the states, and has dual SIM capabilities. This handset will cost you $49.99 with the discount. As you probably figured out by now, that price is for the 1GB RAM/8GB native storage configuration. The unit with 2GB RAM and 16GB of native storage is priced at $109.99.
