There are a number of deals circulating around at the moment within the smartphone world. As such, you can pretty much take advantage of deals and pick up a smartphone at almost any price point. There are even deals to be had at the crazy height of the smartphone price spectrum like that of the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge and the Memorial Day deal which was announced today and will begin this weekend. That said, all deals tend to at least mean that you have to spend a certain amount of money. After all, smartphones do have a baseline price. Well, that is unless you are a the original Moto G from 2013.
By today’s standards, the original Moto G will seem like a basic smartphone but it was always a great device for the money. Spec wise, the Moto G came sporting a 4.5-inch touchscreen with a 1280 x 720 resolution. On the inside, the Moto G came equipped with 1GB RAM and powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 quad-core processor (clocking at 1.2 GHz). In terms of cameras, the Moto G came loaded with a 5-megapixel rear shooter coupled with a 1.3-megapixel front facing option. In terms of storage, the Moto G came loaded with 8GB internal storage and everything came powered by a 2,070 mAh battery. So yes, by today’s standards, it is a little limited. In fact, the main issue worth noting is that it does not offer LTE.
However, what the other devices currently available cannot compete with the Moto G on, is the price. For instance, back in April, the Moto G saw a very significant price drop on Best Buy which saw the device being priced at only $39.99 on Verizon. For any smartphone, off contract, $39.99 is a great price. Well, it now seems that the Moto G has outdone itself as the device on Best Buy has now dropped in price again. Now, you can pick up the original Moto G on Verizon for only $19.99. At that price, this is a great deal just to have for the sake of having or as an emergency device for those times which are, well, emergencies.
