Moto Z2 Play hits new all-time low price of $200 unlocked after $300 discount
Motorola has been offering sweet deals on robust mid-range phones like the Moto X4 and Moto G6 for the past few months, but now that the Moto G7 is out, it's time for the summer 2017-released Moto Z2 Play to also return to the spotlight. This didn't exactly earn rave reviews right off the bat, cutting a number of corners to hit a reasonable price point.
Of course, $499.99 no longer feels very reasonable for a Snapdragon 626-powered handset with extra-large screen bezels, which is why bargain hunters should be happy to see the unlocked variant of the Z2 Play marked all the way down to $199.99. There are no catches or strings of any sort attached to this deal set to run through March 9 on Motorola's official US website.
You don't need to sign a monthly installment plan or choose any specific carrier to activate the device on at the time of purchase. The Moto Z2 Play is fully compatible with both GSM and CDMA networks nationwide, including AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, and Verizon. Unfortunately, the "Fine Gold" model is already listed as out of stock, leaving you with just the "Lunar Gray" color option available at the time of this writing.
That suggests supplies may not last the full five days left of this promotion, so if you like Moto Mods and big savings, you'll want to hurry up and pull the trigger as soon as possible. Even if you don't intend to expand the capabilities of the Moto Z2 Play using one of those cool snap-on accessories, the phone's build quality, memory, storage, screen, and battery life make it an excellent bargain at only two Benjamins.
You're looking at a premium aluminum unibody construction, an insanely thin 6mm profile, a miraculous headphone jack, a respectable 3,000 mAh battery, a sharp 5.5-inch AMOLED panel with Full HD resolution, and a generous 64 gigs of internal digital hoarding room coupled with a multitasking-friendly 4GB RAM. The only thing that could make the phone better is an Android Pie update, which shouldn't be too far away on the horizon.
