Amazon's deal takes the Moto Z3 Play down to $200 after a 43% price cut
The Moto Z3 Play, released last year, has all the makings of a fine budget phone. Updated to Android 9 Pie, the device is equipped with a 6-inch Super AMOLED display with a 1080 x 2160 FHD+ resolution and an 18:9 aspect ratio. The Snapdragon 636 chipset is under the hood along with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of expandable storage. A dual camera setup is on the back (12MP primary + 5MP depth sensor) and there is a front-facing 8MP selfie snapper. Keeping the lights on is a 3000mAh battery and the phone is nanocoated for protection from splashes and light rain.

The only thing missing to make the Moto Z3 Play a budget phone is a budget price. But Amazon has taken care of that with a $150 or 43% discount on the unlocked device bringing it down to $199.99; the online retailer normally sells the phone for $349.99. And if you successfully apply for the Amazon Rewards Visa Card, you can take an additional $50 off bringing the price down to $149.99. The Moto Z3 Play is available in Indigo and will work on all four major U.S. wireless operators (Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint).

If you don't mind a 720p HD display, the Moto G7 Power and its 5000mAh battery can be purchased for 24 monthly payments of just 83 cents ($19.92) at Best Buy with a new Verizon line. We passed along details about this sale earlier today.

Why would anyone buy this? It's not getting any more software updates. It's worth maybe $100 as a burner at this point.

This is a very nice deal! Suitable for people who don't care about the latest and greatest. I'd rather have this phone than the latest lowend $200 device with cheap hardware and sluggish software.
