The Moto G, weaker sibling of the Moto X, is due to take the budget world by storm. At only $179 for a pretty good mid-tier phone, it’s incredibly priced and will be unbeatable for those who are on prepaid carriers. And while the US won’t see the device until around January, it is now available in Canada and really shows what we can expect here in the States.
Telus has picked the phone up and will begin selling it for $200 Canadian dollars, or about $189 US dollars, off contract. If you do want a contract, you can get the phone for free. But with such a low off contract price, it’s hard to justify being stuck in a contract.
Canadian carrier Koodo is also offering the device, but for a different price. It’s $200 with no tab, but if you get a $150 use tab, you can get the device for only $50.
With a 4.5-inch 720p display, a 1.2GHz quad core Snapdragon 400, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of storage, a 5MP camera, and a 2,070 mAh battery, it’s no slouch. And for such low prices, it’s an absolute steal. It might even become a hit.
Hopefully we’ll see our carriers offer the device off contract freely, and maybe T-Mobile will even do something unique with the pricing. But this phone is probably best for those on a prepaid carrier, where no contracts and low prices will complement this device perfectly. Are you excited for this device? Leave a comment!
