As the name suggests, this is a slightly less powerful variant of the crazy popular G6, packing a Snapdragon 427 processor and only 2GB RAM, but its thicker 9mm profile hides a substantially larger 4,000mAh battery under the hood that makes the Moto G6 Play a very smart buy today at a low enough price. Believe it or not, Best Buy currently allows you to snap up the 5.7-inch mid-ranger free of charge after bill credits as long as you're a new AT&T subscriber or an existing customer looking to activate a new line of service.
You'll also need to agree to a 30-month AT&T Next contract in disguise and technically cough up $6 a month for two and a half years before receiving that money back as bill credit. Alternatively, you can go with a two-year AT&T Next Every Year option and end up paying a little over 35 bucks after receiving the same $6 monthly bill credits. Unfortunately, there's no discount available for upgrading customers who are probably better off just getting the handset unlocked for use on all major US networks.
Interestingly, the Moto G6 Play is listed as out of stock at the time of this writing on both AT&T and Motorola's official websites. That suggests you may want to hurry and take advantage of Best Buy's killer deal for new AT&T subscribers, which is likely to expire when the retailer will inevitably run out of inventory. Apart from the ginormous aforementioned cell, the G6 Play also has an arguably stylish design going for it, as well as a decent HD+ "Max Vision" display with relatively thin bezels, a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, and a near-stock Android experience.
