Best Buy is now selling the original Motorola Moto G for Verizon is now priced at just $19.99 without a contract. That's a price tag that's more commonly attached to feature phones, and not their smarter cousins.

Modern high-end smartphones such as the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge, the Apple iPhone 6, or the Motorola Droid Turbo are jam-packed with features and the greatest of specs, but they also come with an equally high price tag. If you're a Verizon customer on the lookout for a cheap and basic Android smartphone, the recent promotion from Best Buy is one to consider.

The original Motorola Moto G was launched back in 2013 as a lower mid-range smartphone that doesn't break the bank. Although almost a couple of years old, the 2013 Moto G can still be considered an entry-level smartphone.

The first-generation Motorola Moto G comes with a 4.5-inch display running a resolution of 720 by 1280 pixels (HD), meaning that quite a compact handset. The smartphone is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 chipset (1.2GHz quad-core ARM Cortex-A7 CPU, Adreno 305 GPU) paired with 1GB of RAM. Other specs include 8GB of integrated storage space, a microSD card slot, and a 2070mAh battery. The 2013 Moto G was launched with Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, but Motorola updated the smartphone to Android 5.0 Lollipop in the meantime.

This deal would have been much sweeter if the smartphone came with LTE capabilities, but unfortunately, the version that Best Buy is offering only comes with 3G connectivity.
