The Moto E4 Plus
is far from Motorola's latest budget-friendly trooper, but even though the newer and arguably better Moto G7
, G7 Power
, and G7 Play
have been repeatedly discounted of late, this modest 5.5-incher released all the way back in 2017 has somehow managed to retain its own mass appeal.
Once again, the aforementioned price point is lowered to $99.99 at the time of this writing with no strings attached for only 48 hours. Namely, until 11:59 pm ET on Thursday, June 20. What's special about the newest Moto E4 Plus
promotion is that it may well be the last of its kind seeing as how the handset has vanished from Best Buy's digital shelves, while its manufacturer lists both the 16 and 32GB variants as out of stock, signaling an imminent discontinuation.
If you like robust phones with gargantuan battery life, you'll probably want to get the unlocked GSM and CDMA-compatible Moto E4 Plus
with 32 gigs of internal storage space at a 50 percent discount while you can. This bad boy squeezes a massive 5,000mAh cell into a premium metal-and-glass body measuring 9.6mm in thickness, although the rest of the specs are understandably humble.
We're talking an IPS LCD panel with 1280 x 720 pixel resolution, a quad-core Snapdragon 427 processor, 2GB RAM, a single 13MP rear-facing shooter, 5MP selfie camera, and worst of all, Android 7.1 Nougat software with no sign of an Oreo or Pie update around the corner.
Still, this thing costs a measly 100 bucks, also coming with a free Mint Mobile 3-month 8GB prepaid SIM card kit, which is normally worth $60 on its own. Of course, you don't have to activate the Moto E4
Plus on Mint, as you're obviously free to take the phone to whatever carrier you want, be it AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, or Verizon.
