An affordable carrier like Republic Wireless needs to offer equally accessible handsets. Smartphones really can’t get much cheaper than the Moto E (unless you want to ruin your experience). Looking to join the Republic? You may be happy to learn the carrier is now offering the Moto E (2015) for only $129!

We have reviewed the Moto E (2015) and we can only complain about a couple aspects of the phone: the display sports a low resolution and the handset has a sub-par camera. Let’s take you back to the price-point, though – this thing is only $129!

Mote E LTE-16

For that amount of money, you really can’t expect this phone to be the gadget of your dreams. And for what it’s worth, the phone does grant a fair performance, great battery life and a design which has become a signature for Motorola. You can read our review of the 2015 Moto E to get all the details.

Aside from the Moto E being among the best affordable smartphones you can get, keep in mind Republic Wireless is also one of the most affordable carriers around. The base plan costs only $10, which offers unlimited calling and texting. Data is priced at only $7.50 per 0.5 GB. And recently Republic Wireless followed Google Project Fi’s steps by refunding money for any data subscribers may have not used during the month.

The only caveat I see is that you will be at the mercy of Sprint’s network, which isn’t exactly the best everywhere you go. If that is not an issue, though, Republic Wireless does offer one of the cheapest deals for cellular service in the USA. They can accomplish this by harnessing the power of WiFi connections and routing all services through the internet, as opposed to using Sprint’s towers all the time.

Mote E LTE-9

Other phone options from Republic Wireless include the 1st-gen Moto E and the 2nd-gen Moto X, which are prices at $99 and $299, accordingly. Honestly, I would probably still opt for the Moto G, as it has a better screen and camera, but the Moto E includes 4G LTE support, which is a also a significant factor.
