Unlocked Motorola Moto G6 is now cheaper than at launch

The Motorola Moto G6 is arguably one of the best sub-$300 smartphones released in the US in 2018. And this is why you may want to know that the handset is currently cheaper than it was at launch (and some months after), being priced at $229.99 instead of $249.99. Of course, that's not a huge price cut, but you're still saving $20 thanks to this new Moto G6 deal.

Motorola doesn't say if this is a limited time offer, so we don't know when/if it's going to expire. In any case, you can find the deal via the source link below.

The Moto G6 that Motorola is selling comes unlocked and is compatible with most US carriers, from Verizon, AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile, to Google's Project Fi (which isn't a carrier per se, but a mobile virtual network operator). The phone can be bought in two color variants: black and blush.

Currently running Android 8 Oreo, the Moto G6 will certainly be updated to Android 9 Pie. New(ish) software aside, the smartphone offers a splash-resistant body, a 5.7-inch IPS display with 1080 x 2160 pixels, a decent dual rear camera, fingerprint scanner, 3 GB of RAM, and a 3000 mAh battery. If you want to find out more about the device, our Moto G6 review is waiting.

Because no phone ever dropped in price during its lifetime. #slownewsday

You don't have to read the article, and this might be good news for someone. If someone was looking for a G6, well they could get one now for $20 less.

Considering this Moto G6 has a much higher resolution 18:9 display with a higher pixel density compared to the new iPhone XR. The G6 has dual cameras on the back. Plus this phone is only 5 months old, and it has the same LTE. Well worth it's price.

Not a bad deal at all. I might just pick one up myself and use it as another secondary phone for backup. The fact that it is affordable and unlocked for ALL carriers makes this a great value. This is why Nokia is leaving money on the table by not releasing their devices here in the US for ANY carrier in the midrange market.

Amen. I truly don't understand why the US can't ever seem to get decent midrange options. Love reading about the Xiaomi Mi A2...can't get it with US bands. Nokia 6.1 Plus would be a game changer with all of the US bands the Oneplus 6 supports....but no US connectivity. Same for all of the better Nokia phones. Or GOOD Android One phones. Or ANY Snapdragon 660/710 phones. If you want an unlocked midrange phone in the US, it's basically the Moto G series and maybe a few Sony castoffs, and that's it. Everything else unlocked is close to flagship pricing ($500+) and up.

My g5 plus has 4gb/64gb flashed to 8.1 Oreo. And same camera specs. How is that in any way an upgrade besides the slightly faster processor which normal users will never notice a difference???

Why the hell would you say almost certainly upgradable to Pie? I've had a G5+ and I'm still on 7.0. Moto offers no support to it's budget line. My phone has been pending Oreo for 11 months. Screw Lenovo. Im going back to Apple for the Xr. Though I'm sure I'll hate it after a couple months like I always do and find some Android phone that promises useful functions.

Also, I joined this forum/site to literally only say how stupid you'd have to be to believe that Moto would update it to Pie. I'll probably never end up bad on this site. But thank Bing for the suggested story, you got a new subscriber.

would be nice to see the 4gb version offered at a discount. It's not even on the moto website so far as I could tell. Is listed on amazon though.
