Deal: Brand new Motorola Moto E6 is now free at Verizon
Less than a week after it started selling the new Motorola Moto E6 for $149.99, Verizon Wireless is now allowing customers to get the smartphone for free. There is no trade-in required to qualify for this deal, but you will need to add a new line of service and opt for 24 monthly payments for the device. Normally, you'd have to pay $6.24 per month over 2 years to get the Moto E6, but that becomes $0 per month when you add a new line.

Succeeding the Motorola Moto E5 from 2018, the Moto E6 is obviously not a phone that can turn heads, but that's okay for its price range. What we don't quite understand is the fact that, compared to the E5, the E6 looks a bit less modern, as it's got pretty thick bezels all around its screen. Speaking of it, the 5.5-inch screen of the Moto E6 is a bit smaller than the 5.7-inch screen of last year's Moto E5, although the pixel resolution has remained unchanged (720 x 1440).

The Moto E6 is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 435 processor, which is slightly superior to the Snapdragon 425 of the E5. Furthermore, Motorola says that the E6 has a greatly improved 13 MP rear camera (with portrait mode) that focuses fast and delivers better photos, even in low light scenarios. We have not tested this new camera, so, for now, we can't comment on its performance.

Other Moto E6 features include 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of expandable storage space, splash resistance, a standard 3.5mm audio jack, and a 3000 mAh battery that should last "more than a day." The new smartphone runs Android 9 Pie out of the box and comes without "bloatware and unwanted apps."

Verizon aside, in the near future, the Motorola Moto E6 should be released unlocked, as well as on various other US carriers: T-Mobile, Metro by T-Mobile, Boost Mobile, U.S. Cellular, Xfinity Mobile, and Consumer Cellular.

Indeed a great deal. However, for those who purchase smartphones with development in mind, the Verizon Moto E6 is not supported by Motorola's official bootloader unlocking portal. Of course, this will come as no huge surprise to anybody familiar with Verizon branded Moto smartphones. Big Red is notorious for locked down bootloaders -- especially with Verizon branded Moto smartphones. Accordingly, it is extremely unlikely that rooting the device will ever be possible, which makes this device devoid of any Android community support. But, for those who merely want the latest Moto E series phone as a full stock daily driver, this is an extraordinary deal.
