The regular price of Motorola Edge is $699.99. However, thanks to a promotional offer, you can currently pre-order the phone for less than $500 in the US. As for the LG Velvet, this normally costs $599.99, although you can get it for only $300 if you activate a new line on an unlimited plan at AT&T.
