Of the four models of the Moto G7 released last year, the Moto G7 (opens in new tab) is the one to watch for. At its regular $300 cost, we said it was "the right price to pay" and that there wasn't a better way to spend $300 on a smartphone in North America at the time. Today, you can snag the unlocked Moto G7 from B&H for only $199.99 (opens in new tab) while supplies last and save $100 off its full price.
Today's deal is valid on both black and white models of the Moto G7 with Alexa, as well as the standard Moto G7 in white. These devices are brand new and compatible with both GSM and CDMA carrier networks. Along with the 64GB unlocked smartphone, you'll also receive a free 7-day trial of the Mint Mobile service with the purchase. That means you'll be able to unbox the phone and call your friends within minutes whether you currently have a cellular service plan or not. B&H includes free 2-day shipping so you won't have to wait too long to recieve your new device.
The Moto G7 is equipped with a 6.2-inch IPS LCD display, a Snapdragon 632 octa-core processor, 4GB RAM, and a 3000mAh battery. It also features expandable memory via its microSD card slot, so you can upgrade its 64GB capacity with a 128GB microSD card (opens in new tab) for just $25. If you choose one of the models with Alexa functionality, you'll be able to press a button on the device to speak to Alexa and ask the assistant to perform certain functions on the phone, answer questions, and more. Those models also come with a selection of pre-installed Amazon apps.
I want to remind everyone that the Samsung Galaxy S5 had 2 GB of RAM, 32 GB of storage and 32 bit quad core processor. And it - as well as the Nexus 6 and other Android phones that launched that year - can still run (and run well!) pretty much any app that 85% of the iPhone SE users are going to be running. So what does that say about this device with twice as much RAM and storage and a 64 bit octacore processor for half the iPhone SE's cost? Of course, the media will never admit this, especially in America. You would expect/hope that Android sites would instead. People forget: Android and Apple are two different platforms. Apple is all about hardware and that approach is fine. Android meanwhile is built around cloud and web services. Google has been promoting cloud and instant apps for years, and is also in the process of switching out Android apps for PWAs in the Google Play Store. The best part is that even though it is designed to support cloud and web services, it doesn't presume having great or even good mobile/Wi-Fi services. Instead quite the opposite: lots of things on the platform presume kbps data connections. They work BETTER with 5G - as well as SOCs that outperform laptops in certain benchmark tests like the A13 - but it isn't required. But because the media has Apple on the brain, we never hear how neat devices like this are on the platform that was designed to support it.
