The latest discount brings the price of a 32GB variant all the way down to $149.99, but only if you don't mind activating the Moto Z3 Play upfront on Verizon. Typically sold for $349.99, the handset can be purchased from Best Buy at $249.99 with AT&T activation or $299.99 if you opt to activate your wireless service "later."
While there are a number of newer devices providing stiff competition for the 32 gig Z3 Play at $250 or $300, it's definitely hard to find a better all-around package in the sub-$200 segment. Powered by a more than respectable Snapdragon 636 SoC, the modular phone combines the aforementioned internal storage space with a generous 4 gigs of RAM, while a 3,000mAh battery can deliver surprisingly solid running times between blazing fast "turbo" charges.
The dual 12 + 5MP rear-facing shooter setup is no pushover either, with the secondary lens producing beautiful portraits and bokeh effects, while the side-mounted fingerprint scanner is certainly not perfect but arguably more accurate than a "modern" in-display biometric recognition method nonetheless. Last but not least, the Moto Z3 Play sports a sharp 2160 x 1080 Super AMOLED screen with no notch, hole punch, or other distracting bezel-reducing elements. All in all, that's an amazing list of features for just 150 bucks.
