Acquired by Lenovo from Google back in 2014, Motorola Mobility bled money for its parent company quarter after quarter until just a couple of years ago. The US-based handset division wasn't profitable for long after that either, but ironically enough, the business somehow managed to post its best financial result in around a decade in the middle of a deadly global pandemic that also wreaked havoc on the mobile industry as a whole.
One of the main reasons why Motorola-branded smartphones are successful all of a sudden is how many different models you can find at competitive prices in key markets like the US. A grand total of four affordable devices with respectable specifications and modern designs were released stateside just a few weeks back, and believe it or not, all four can already be purchased at up to a massive $100 discount with (almost) no strings attached.
Moto G Play (2021), for instance, normally costs $169.99 in an unlocked variant. Best Buy can bring that down to $69.99 if you're willing to open a new line of Verizon service or an altogether new account with the nation's largest carrier for a phone that you'll technically still be able to activate on whatever mobile network you please at any point down the line.If that doesn't sound like a deep price cut to you, you may not be aware that the
Meanwhile, the notched 6.5-inch handset with a Snapdragon 460 processor under the hood and two rear-facing cameras can be yours for $109.99 if you're an upgrading Verizon customer or want to activate the thing on AT&T upfront instead.
Basically the same exact conditions apply to Best Buy's $50 and $100 discounts for the Moto G Power (2021), G Stylus (2021), and Motorola One 5G Ace 2021, which are therefore currently on sale for as little as $99.99, $199.99, and $299.99 respectively.
That 5G-enabled mid-ranger in particular sounds like an awesome bargain if you don't have a problem meeting the retailer's key requirement to maximize your savings. Powered by a Snapdragon 750 SoC, the 6.7-incher comes with a triple rear-facing shooter system in tow, as well as a sizable 5,000mAh battery.
Of course, if you're primarily interested in your next phone's battery life, the Moto G Power (2021) can also be a tremendous option on an even tighter budget, while the latest G Stylus edition has a, well, built-in stylus going for it in addition to no less than four snappers slapped on its plastic back.
