Motorola smartphones are no strangers to Amazon’s Prime Exclusive device program. The Moto X4 was introduced on the program last year, and in pursuit of reaching more markets, the mid-range king in that of Moto G6 is now available.
For those unfamiliar with Amazon’s program, it offers new smartphones in all categories at discounted prices in exchange for on-device advertising. In other words, buyers can save a bit of money up front if they agree to put up with some pre-loaded Amazon apps. Many Android OEMs have joined the program, LG being a recent entrant, and now Lenovo’s “bang for your buck” Moto G6 from the Moto G lineup.
The Moto G6 series is Motorola’s very latest in the premium mid-range category. There are three models, but only one is available in the US. The Moto G6 recently became available on Verizon, which is currently the only other option to buy the affordable smartphone.
Now that the Amazon Prime Exclusive Program does not include lockscreen ads, the discount isn’t quite as much. Moto G6 costs $235, which is $5 cheaper than Verizon’s price tag and $15 less than Motorola’s tag. Both Black and Oyster Blush colors are available, but only the Black is shipping now. For the price, there’s a lot to like about the phone. Some specs include a Snapdragon 450 chip, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage (with microSD support), a 3,000mAh battery, dual rear cameras, and Android Oreo. It’s unlocked to work on most US carriers.
