Motorola Moto G LTE sells for just $179.99 at BestBuy at the moment, but there's a catch
If you are on the market for an affordable, yet more than adequate LTE-enabled smartphone and you've been eyeing the Moto G with pleasure, then we have an exciting piece of news for you! At the moment, you can snatch a Motorola Moto G LTE from BestBuy for $179.99 only. This sum of money will get a 4G-capable KitKat trooper for $40 less than its regular, non-discounted price of $219.99.

However, there is a slight catch – the deal does not include free shipping to an address of your choice. Instead, you'll have to order the device and after it has shipped to one of BestBuy's brick and mortar stores, you'll need to go there and get it yourself. Just a minor inconvenience, if you ask us.

If the Motorola Moto G LTE sounds like something you'd throw your money at, you should know that you can choose among two classic color options – black and white. If you are still on the fence, however, be sure to make a decision fast, as it's pretty sure that the available discounted units are not limitless. Follow the source links if you make up your mind towards a purchase.

After taxes, it'll be closer to $200, plus the price of gas + time to go get it, but that's still a damn good deal.

List another LTE device with a 1280x720 display, 1gb of ram, quad core cpu, 8gb of expandable storage, 5mp slow motion video capture camera, water resistant, FM radio, and more for $179. Well worth the price.

Although it lacks the high res display but it has a bigger screen, the LG Volt looks like a worthy competitor. It comes with a better camera, and much larger battery, and yes LTE.

Looks like it is only for boost and virgin, of which they are sprint mvno's. Not interested. And LG hasn't proven itself yet with updates, nor do they use a stock skin.

In my case there's a BestBuy on my way to work so I can just wait for it to arrive and pick it up on my way home....and yes the wait is worth saving the $40....

A good deal. The Moto G pretty much makes every other Android device redundant.

I fail to see the sense in your comment, but I will give you a chance to explain before I make a snide remark.

This ought to be interesting.

The sense? The Moto G is such a good Android smartphone for the money, there's little sense in spending more money to get any other Android device.

Key phrase in your statement--"for the money". Yes, the Moto G is an excellent device that is well worth the price of admission. I definitely agree with that. But, to say that there is no point in getting any other Android device is ridiculous. Does the Moto G have an active stylus like the Note series? Does it have a premium build like a flagship HTC or Sony device? Do you honestly think that puny screen will satisfy most Android users? Do you see my point now? Phones aren't "one size fits all" like Apple has led a huge portion of the American public to believe for so many years.

I think for a few outside cases, the Moto G isn't suitable, but they aren't the sort of people I'm referring to. For the vast vast majority of the Android buying public, the Moto G is all they need.

Anyone know of how the battery life is on AT&T with this LTE version? How long does it last on a full charge with light, heavy, and mix usage?
