Moto G6 Play and Z3 Play join Prime Exclusive lineup at discounted prices

Moto G6 Play and Z3 Play join Prime Exclusive lineup at discounted prices
Amazon’s lineup of Prime Exclusive smartphones is already quite varied and includes a number of Motorola phones, but now the online retailer is adding a couple more. Specifically, starting today, the Moto G6 Play and Moto Z3 Play are the latest two smartphones to join the lineup and, as with any Prime Exclusive device, they come pre-installed with a few extras.

Specifically, the offerings ship with Amazon Alexa straight out of the box along with various other Amazon apps such as Prime Video, Prime Photos, and Prime Music, although the lock screen ads that were included in the past are no longer part of the package. Also, following in the footsteps of many other Prime Exclusives, the Motorola duo is compatible with all major carriers, meaning those on AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and Verizon will all be able to use either smartphone. However, just as expected, it’s worth noting that a Prime Membership is required in order to purchase the devices, with this currently setting consumers back $119 per year.

Presently, Amazon Prime members who may be interested in the devices will be pleased to know that the online retailer is offering the two at discounted prices. The Moto G6 Play, for one, is on sale at the moment for $189.99, representing savings of $10, and is available in the Deep Indigo blue color. The Moto Z3 Play, on the other hand, is also available in Deep Indigo but the savings are slightly more significant at $50, with the smartphone currently going for $449.99

$10 off isn't that solid for the Moto G, when you have to pay tax...

This can't be a good sign. The Moto Z3 Play just barely got announced, it's not even released and it's already at a discount!? Usually it takes a month or so after release before discounts pop up. Last week I went to a Verizon store for something else and while I was there I asked about the Z3 Play and which battery mod it will be coming with and they had no idea what I was even talking about. They are going to receive their training in another week or so... Also, I'm not sure it's worth it to get it from Amazon if it comes with even MORE bloatware on top of what carriers will put on it.
