This one keeps coming back at that $150 price, and it still remains a great deal for a budget phone to this day.

Thanks OP.

I bought the G Fast weeks ago.
It is good for the price.

One thing that I find confusing is that in the phone settings I turned off AMBER ALERTS
but the alerts still came through and my phone made that god-awful noise.

You can't disable Amber Alerts in Canada. Canadian government mandated that. That option is only available in the USA. They should grey out that in Canadian phones but that's too hard to do and then would not work if the phone ever went to the USA.

I was able to turn them off last year on my pixel 3xl but after some update (I'm guessing) I am no longer able to.

This is a great deal to pair with a good BYOD plan.

If you don't care much about having the latest and greatest camera this phone will do 99% of what you want to do with ease and last long too.

Ain't getting lured by crappy carrier plans to get a "flagship" anymore.

I do like these budget Moto phones.... my parents are using G7 Play phones and it's perfect for them.

Yes, you only get one major update - but hey, just buy a new phone when the second major update comes around.

One ask would be to include NFC.... but I'm grabbing one as a back-up phone anyway.

Thanks OP!
Everyone has cool signatures with the stuffs they own listed... I'm in!!!
Koodo $40 6GB plan + Public Mobile $15 for 100 mins and 250MB Data X2 for the parents

Honestly, even that isn't much of a big deal these days. Android itself has become almost completely decoupled from the 'update' cycle. Project mainline means you get critical updates anyways. All of the core apps are now updated via the Play Store. It's mostly a non-issue, unless a critical kernel-level security vulnerability is uncovered at some indeterminate point in the future.

Great budget phones for sure my mom is still using her E4 for 40$ back from the 2017 deal on Amazon.Com and it still performs very well everything considered.

Advice for gentlemen here.

When it comes to Android devices, there are some minimums for general use devices.

3GB RAM is a green light.
720p @ Cell Phone Size
1080p @ Tablets up to 10"

For limited use devices, where Bluestacks doesn't work right, and you need a specific-use Android device.

2GB RAM
Any usable screen

Anything less than 2GB and the Android device may randomly crash, and I don't fully understand why.

Simple. The android ecosystem is built terribly, including the OS and apps. Reminds me of the PC days when RAM started to become much cheaper and Windows and applications started consuming heaps of RAM. I’m certain the majority of programmers aren’t taught to build slim, and of course releasing quickly is of higher priority vs. being bug free and efficient.


Ona related note, I got this last time it was on sale a few weeks ago as a gift to replace the E4 that I got way back; I was actually in the US at the time and got one at Walmart!

Only problem is I feel the screen/frame might be too big. But then again, at this price point it’s hard to find a new phone with 3GB of RAM.

The government mandated that alerts must be pushed out, not that you have to receive it. Turn off mobile data or switch to 2g/3g instead of 4g/LTE and no alerts!
I know there was an alert because parents' phone go crazy.
