Deal: Amazon selling the Motorola Moto G (2015) at just $149, today only
If you're on the market for an Android 6.0 Marshmallow smartphone but don't have too much cash on hand, check out Amazon's current promotion on the Motorola Moto G (3rd-gen)

Amazon has the current-generation Moto G with 8GB of integrated storage space available at $149, down from the handset's usual retail price of $179.99. Note that this deal is only available today, meaning that you might want to jump straight in if you're interested.

The model that Amazon is selling at a discount is the 8GB version, which also comes with 1GB of RAM. If you need more storage space, Amazon is willing to throw in a 32GB microSD card for $9.99 extra. Unfortunately, the 16GB version of the Moto G (2015), which also comes with 2GB of RAM, maintains its standard price of $219.99.

To many, the Motorola Moto G (3rd-generation), probably the best value-for-money smartphone of 2015, needs no introduction. Just in case you need a refresher, though, the handset comes with a 5-inch display running at 720 by 1280 pixels, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 chipset with a quad-core CPU, a 5MP primary battery, a 13MP primary camera, as well as a 5MP secondary shooter on the front.

Other hardware highlights include water resistance and a 2470mAh battery that offers better-than-expected autonomy. On the software side, the Moto G (2015) launched with Android 5.1 Lollipop, but Motorola has since updated its entry-level offering to Android 6.0 Marshmallow.

8GB phones should be banned from the planet earth so the 16GB versions. Just a short rant.

The Moto G is not a good budget deal anymor. Many phones have surpassed it in terms of offering better specs for lower price. I bought a Blue Vivo XL from Betsbuy recently for the $99.99 price tag, ($149.99 normally), 2GB RAM, 16GB storage, 3150mAh Battery, 5.5" 1280x720 AMOLED Display. Works great! Also the Huawei Honor 5 is available for $199.99 for way better specs. Motorola/Lenovo needs to update specs significantly for this years Moto G in order to compete at the same price level. This years specs for budget phone should have a minium of (16GB storage + microsd card dlot, 2GB-3GB RAM, processors are fine, cameras are fine for the price. Thats it mainly

Do you think those cheap-selling Chinese OEMs do make any meaningful profit by selling at such prices? Motorola can't sell below their margin, or tgey eon't make profit.

A 5.5" phone with a 3150mAh battery? That sounds like it won't last that long

Not worth it because of 8GB and only 1 GB of RAM. If it goes below $100, maybe.
