The Moto G6
is getting a bit long in the tooth, no longer feeling like the bang for buck champion it undoubtedly was 18, 12, and even 9 months ago. But shortly after this spring's release of the Moto G7 family
, the killer deals on the 5.7-inch Full HD handset and its humbler Play brother
started piling up, reaching their pinnacle a couple of months back.
That's right, you can once again bag this mid-range bestseller for as little as 88 bucks with both GSM and CDMA network support, as well as a free 1-year warranty and free nationwide shipping. The warranty alone makes this deal far more compelling than your everyday eBay bargain, although technically, we're not talking about the same service that Motorola provides for phones sold directly through its US website.
Then again, the Lenovo-owned company continues to sell the Snapdragon 450-powered device for an arguably excessive $250 and up, unless of course you purchase a regularly priced Moto G7
, unlocked Z4, 64GB G6
, Motorola One
Zoom, or standard Motorola One, in which case you'll get the Moto G6 completely free of charge
in a 32 gig storage configuration.
Quick Ship Electronics sells the same variant for the aforementioned reduced price of $87.99, with 3 gigs of memory also on deck, as well as a 3,000mAh battery, a sharp IPS LCD panel with relatively thin bezels and a front-mounted fingerprint scanner, a dual 12 + 5MP rear-facing camera setup, and close-to-stock Android 9.0 Pie software experience. That obviously can't compete with the Moto G7's spec sheet
, but neither can the latter's price point. And in case you're wondering, these "open box" Moto G6
units should look and work pretty much as good as brand-new ones, shipping in "slightly distressed" packaging with their factory settings restored and original accessories included.
