If you’re looking for a great deal on a high-end Android device and don’t mind signing a contract with a carrier, Amazon has you covered. The e-tailer has now slashed down the prices on two flagship handsets – the LG G2 and the Moto X. Let’s start by looking at the LG G2.

Amazon is offering up the G2 for $99 if you’re a new Verizon subscriber, or $119 for existing customers looking for an upgrade. For those on AT&T, you can also get a small discount on the LG G2 at $149 with contract.

As a refresher, the LG G2 is powered by a 2.26GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 GPU and includes 2GB of RAM. Other specs include a 13MP rear cam with OIS, a 2.1MP front cam, 32GB storage, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, a 5.2-inch 1920 x 180 IPS LCD display and Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean.

Amazon has also cut the Moto X’s price down to $99 with contract, following Best Buy’s lead. This low price applies to both the AT&T and Verizon version, for existing and new customers.

While the Moto X might not be as powerful as the LG G2, it makes up for the modest specs by offering unique special features like Touchless Control and Active Display Technology.

So how about it – anyone planning on picking up the LG G2 via Amazon? Or perhaps the Moto X is more your cup of tea?

    So, I bought a LG G2 on T-Mobile. Love it so far. Only complaint is it did not come with a headset. I had seen the specs and noted they said headset included, and just assumed that was a mis-communication. Now I see in your video you got a headset. I feel ripped off, but maybe that’s why it’s $0 on T-Mobile?

      I think T-Mobile might have something to do with it, you should ask them.

        I was hoping to hear other people’s experience, your reply was already assumed in my question.

    Lg might set up the G2 to fizzle with the release of the Nexus 5. but, who knows…

    The miraculous endurance of the G2 paired with a high-level screen and processor, make it one of the most tempting smartphones I’ve seen in the last six months.
