[Best Buy] TELUS Motorola Moto G Play 16GB - $139.99 @ BestBuy prepaid/no contract

....Great phone for the price!

I bought one even though I got the LG G Pad 8 as part of the Fido 3GB/$15 a month deal.

Thanks. I'm a big fan of Motorola's skin . So close to pure Android. Also phone is slated to get Nougat soon. Not everybody wants a big screen device.

With 5th gen arriving I was hoping to see $120 max. Been on sale multiple times at this price since December.

I know it's not a completely fair comparison but how about the Zenfone 3 max at $200 or a refurb nexus 6 at $280? (Canada computer)

just why
That model only works for data only on Big 3, so... for me yes I could use it but for average people on normal cell phone plan it won't work.

If you like idea of 2G calling on Fido/Rogers then waiting for LTE signal to come back for data, then yeah you can try. Sale price is over anyway.

Brother picked this up yesterday. Phone is nice, snappy. Includes swappable back (black or deep purple). Android 6.0.1 .

One caveat, the charger is different from most current cellphones. AC adapter is a one piece with non detachable micro USB end . In other words you're SOL if you need to use this phone with an external battery pack as it comes right out of the box. You'd need to find a separate micro USB to USB cable.

UPDATE - my brother is traveling in Chile right now. He is loving his new Motorola G Play. Says battery life is very good and camera solid too (he was on an old iPhone 4 previously). He supplemented on-board memory with the $19 Sandisk 32GB micro SD deal from The Source.

I used @mobifree the last time this phone was on sale. Great service! Had my code in 40 minutes.
Used the following promo code to reduce price to $2.49. RFD2017. Hopefully its still active.

It's apparently also a really low powered output charger anyway. You're better off using a different one.

Can't really fault much with this phone for the price. An SD card slot is a nice touch too
