As part of their deals of the day program, Amazon is selling the Motorola Moto G (3rd Generation) for the all-time low of $149.00. You can have any color you want as long as it’s black, and this device is compatible with either AT&T or T-Mobile (although with T-Mobile it has limited 4G availability).

Not to be outdone, B&H has dropped their price on this mid-range smartphone to match, but they’re also sweetening the deal quite a bit. If you spring for the Moto G with B&H, you’ll get a 32GB microSD card and a $20 gift card on the house. Not too shabby!

The Motorola Moto G is far from a flagship device, but for the price, you’re really getting a ton of bang for your buck. It runs a Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor and has a 5-inch LCD display with a resolution of 1280 x 720. It’s LTE ready, Bluetooth enabled, and it lugs around a 2470 mAh battery that can last all day long. Cameras are solid on front and back, and the OS out of the box is Android 5.1 Lollipop. This version only comes with 8GB of internal storage, which is part of what makes B&H’s deal so alluring, and it only has 1 gig of RAM. The 16GB version of the device sports twice as much RAM, but no promos are currently going on for this variant of the device.

All in all, it’s a midrange smartphone that definitely has the feel of a more upper-tier device. A solid purchase for someone just getting into the smartphone game or for someone looking for a secondary device. If you’re an owner of the Moto G (3rd Generation) let us know what your experience has been like so far. Would you recommend our readers jump on this deal? Tell us in the comments!

  • I hope this means that the new Moto X will be out soon!

    • DDD

      Nope. They’re just ditching old product.

      • Yep, but they usually ditch the old product just before a new one comes out!
        I’m really waiting for the “new” Moto X pure, but so far there are no rumors at all!

        • DDD

          That’s usually a possible reason, yes, but this time, it’s not likely, because, as you said, there are no rumors at all. They just have a lot of old stock that they want to get rid of. No one’s gonna buy them at the the price they are. Because well, phones like the honor 5X exist.

    Sorry, $150 is still too much for a MotoG 8GB with such low specs, should be $100.
    Blu Life One X sells for $150 on Amazon with much higher specs:

    MediaTek MT6753 SoC (Snapdragon 615 equivalent)
    2GB RAM
    16GB Internal Storage
    MicroSD Slot
    5/13 MP front/back cameras, with front/back flashes
    5.2″ 1080p IPS LCD screen
    Android 5.1 Lollipop
    2900 mAh battery

    I’ve owned the Moto G 3rd gen for almost a month and it rendered 2 Samsung SD cards useless within that time span. At first I blamed the SD card, but then the 2nd card failed. When I say fail I mean randomly acting like it’s not inserted, then not detecting it at all, then saying it’s corrupted and not even a format with fix it. Any attempt to read the SD card on my laptop or desktop gets me nowhere.

    Either I have bad luck and just got a dud Moto G or the new 6.0 feature of formatting an SD to be internal storage is still buggy on the device.

    To end on a positive note the device itself is great when you take out the SD card factor. Only problem is I’m now stuck with 8GB and that is challenging. I should have gotten the 16GB version but I thought nah, cheaper to just pop in a 32GB SD card.

    • “I should have gotten the 16GB version but I thought nah, cheaper to just pop in a 32GB SD card.”

      That was a dumb move, hope you learned your lesson to not be such a cheapskate next time. As for SD cards, buy real ones like SanDisk or Samsung brand, not the piece-of-sht cheapie fake crap. Problem solved.

      • Jason Wilson

        Well both cards were the same model: Samsung EVO+ 32GB SDHC

        Pretty quality SD card and that certainly didn’t solve the problem. As far as being a cheapskate, well thinking about the 32GB card being internal memory that was meant to be 40GB total.

        Amazing that you would blame me the consumer for the defects of the device :|

        I’ll take a guess that you don’t have many friends.

          I’ll take a guess that you never learned the difference between Internet chat and real-life chat.
