The excellent mid-range Moto G6 is on sale at Best Buy for a measly $60 and up
Motorola delivered more than just your typical incremental upgrade with this year's Moto G7 lineup, but even though the G6 is significantly smaller, less eye-catching, and powerful than its "notched" sequel, a big enough discount can still make one of 2018's most popular mid-range phones feel like a smart investment.

Normally priced at $250 and up unlocked, the 5.7-inch Moto G6 is available right now from Best Buy for as little as $59.99. There are obviously some strong strings attached to this seemingly exceptional deal, as you need to activate the handset on Sprint straight off the bat to save the full 190 bucks. If you'd rather take it to Verizon or AT&T, you also won't have to pay the regular price of an unlocked G6, but you'll need to settle for a slightly less impressive $140 savings.

Finally, choosing to activate your wireless service later will raise the price from $59.99 and $109.99 to $159.99, which is still a decent 90 bucks lower than the handset's MSRP. By the way, there are currently no discounts to be had on Motorola's official website, although something tells us a new round of promotions on the company's popular Moto G and Moto Z lineups is brewing as we speak.

In the meantime, it's quite hard to deny the appeal of a $60 Moto G6 with a Full HD+ "Max Vision" (aka no-notch) display in tow, as well as a respectable dual 12 + 5MP rear camera system, 3GB RAM, 32GB internal storage space, "all-day" battery (with turbopower charging support), a reliable front-mounted fingerprint scanner, and Android 9.0 Pie software making its way around the nation right now

While there is no question that the Moto G6 is a great phone for the price as it ships, those of you who find the current Android 9.0 Pie update currently rolling out to these phones a selling point probably need to take a step back and do a bit more research. I bought one of these phones after the update from Nougat to Oreo virtually destroyed my G4 plus. So when the Pie update hit me on July 15th, I hit the remind me later button and got online and started reading. At the Lenovo forums for example, one of the threads already has 26 pages of people bitching about this update turning their phones into near paperweights. They have serious lagging issues, have sound problems, screens are only half as bright as they used to be, and more. Motorola has clearly pushed this update before it was ready, effectively turning all the users who update to Pie into something like unwilling beta testers. Will there be more updates to fix all the bugs in it? I for one, am going to wait and see.
