Deal: Motorola Moto E4 is on sale for just $40 (45% off) in the U.S.

One of the cheapest Android smartphones available in the United States, the Moto E4 has become even cheaper. It's been five months since Motorola launched the Moto E4 and the phone is already selling for almost half the price.

Walmart is now offering the Verizon Moto E4 prepaid for just $40, which means you'll be saving $30 when you buy it. Few smartphones that cost less than $50 offer the same Android experience as Motorola's budget-friendly handset.

It's true that the phone will not be getting any major OS updates, but at least it comes with Android 7.1.1 Nougat right out of the box. It even comes with a fingerprint sensor under the home button.

The rest of the Moto E4's specs are pretty decent for its price: 5-inch HD (720p) display, 8-megapixel rear-facing camera, 1.3GHz quad-core MediaTek processor, 2GB RAM and 16GB expandable storage.

If you think that's enough to convince you to purchase the Moto E4, then you might want to check the deal on Walmart (and our full review while you're at it).

Old news! That $40 VZW Moto E4 has been on sale at Walmart for months now. You PA idiots are just now finding that out? Do your job and stay ahead of readers instead of playing catch up. What's your next headline? You gonna suck off of me and write "Verizon Moto E4 Plus on sale for just $99 at Target" too?

Yeah I thought it was the unlocked version or something. Click bait. Old news.

@jjface. You can easily get the unlock code for the locked Verizon Moto E4 on Ebay for $2.25. That's what I did, works great. Also, this Verizon Moto E4 has the 1.4 GHz Snapdragon 425 SoC, not the 1.3 GHz MediaTek SoC that this idiot incompetent writer stated.

Thanks - Yes I know but if the unlocked version was $40 I'd rather buy it!

Yes, I bought the Moto E4 Plus for Verizon prepaid unlocked it and it worked fine on T-mobile and At&t. That was just the test run, I took it to another country and replaced my unlce's aging LG phone with the Moto E4 Plus and it works fine over there as well.

You know what is interesting, back in 2013 when the first Moto G came on the market. It had a smaller 4.5" 720p display, 1.2 GHz quad core 32 bit CPU, 1 gb of ram, 8 gb of non expandable storage, Android 4.3 for less than $150. Today we see this Moto E4 with a 5" 720p display, 1.3 GHz quad core 64 bit CPU, 2 GB of RAM, 16 gb of expandable storage for only $40. Dam good deal.

@sgodsell. The Verizon Moto G was only $79 at Best Buy back in 2013. The Verizon Moto E2 was only $10 at Best Buy in 2015. I bought them both, and the Moto E4 too. Even at $40, the Moto E4 is still not the best deal today. You can get a ZTE Blade ZMax with 8-core SnapDragon 435, 2GB ram, 32GB storage, dual-lens rear camera, 6" 1080p display, and usb-c for $99... or if you port your non-TMobile number over to MetroPCS, you can get that phone for FREE.

Yo. You and I must be the usual suspects. I agree that phone arena doesn't have the best info but what's even worse is their readers who are dumb AF. Everyone you replied to on this don't know their s**t and need to shut the f**k up or learn their s**t. Gsmarena is way worse though comment wise. This is gonna sound f**ked up but they're f**king retards.
