Motorola Moto G4 Play for Verizon pre-paid just $35 at Best Buy

Imagine the smile you will see when the recipient of your holiday gift opens the wrapping to find there is a new smartphone inside. Now, we understand that not every person you're buying a gift for should be rewarded with a smartphone. But if you know someone using Verizon's pre-paid network, you can buy them the Motorola Moto G4 Play from Best Buy for just $34.99. And if you don't know anyone who could use the phone, you could buy it for yourself.

For the same price that it would cost you to buy a box of Jujubes, a small popcorn and a small Coke at the movie theater (Ok, we are exaggerating a little), you can purchase a new smartphone lock, stock and barrel. And you don't even have to activate the phone with Verizon to take advantage of the deal, although it is locked to Big Red.

Best Buy normally asks $84.99 for the phone, so you are saving $50 or 58% The Moto G4 Play comes with a 5-inch LCD screen carrying a 720 x 1280 resolution screen. Driving the handset is a Snapdragon 410 chipset containing a quad-core 1.2GHz CPU and the Adreno 306 GPU. 2GB of RAM is inside along with 16GB of internal storage. Those seeking additional storage can take advantage of the 128GB capacity microSD slot on board the device. The 8MP camera on back of the phone has an f/2.2 aperture, and there is a front-facing 5MP snapper for selfies and video chats. Keeping the lights on is a 2800mAh battery. Android 6.0 is pre-installed.

For $35, this would make a good device to use as a back up, or you can use it with your Wi-Fi service at home to receive data. If interested, click on the sourcelink.

This version lacks the GSM bands that would come with the non-prepaid G4.

I snagged one of these to use as a dashcam in my car. Great little device for $35. Almost makes me sad I can't use it as a phone.
