In our hunt for deals you’ll love we always keep one eye on Daily Steals. They’re currently offloading a batch of refurbished Motorola phones in their ‘Motorola Madness’ promotion. This is the pick of them – A Motorola Moto Z Droid handset for $169.99!

Even refurbished, it’s an extraordinary price for this model. It was released in September 2016, so it’s only been on the market for 18 months. The spec pretty much reflects that.

Here’s a few vitals:

  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor with 4GB of RAM
  • 32GB internal storage upgradable to 256GB
  • 13MP rear camera with laser autofocus and optical image stabilization
  • 5.5″ Quad HD AMOLED touch-screen display
  • Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow OS


The big selling point of the Moto Z Droid is the design. It’s ultra-thin, even by modern smartphone standards. It has a sleek aluminum chassis and Gorilla Glass, so it’s a decent piece of kit for the fashionistas out there – both for snapping photos and posing nonchalantly.

Colour-wise, the Moto Z Droid is available in ‘black and lunar grey’ or ‘white and fine gold’. We’re not a style guide, but we think they both look pretty alluring. Perhaps choose whichever one matches your car, tie, or poodle.

If you’ve never had a refurbished phone before, you might have an image of a beat up piece of junk with half the screen missing. This isn’t the case. Grade B refurbed phones like these will have, at most, a few scuffs or scratches. In fact at a glance it’s likely they’ll look brand new.

By the way, any marks are only superficial. The phone itself should work like new. If not, the 30 day warranty has you covered.

And here’s the beauty of it: Because of a few scuffs on the casing, the price gets knocked down from the retail value of $850 to just $169.99. Crazy huh? Honestly, once you go refurb you never go back.

Shipping’s free, so what are you waiting for? We suspect at this price they’ll sell out quick, so head over and grab one while you can. The button below will take you there.
