Moto G4 Play Coming to Amazon Prime with $50 Discount

moto-g-play-amazon-prime
Earlier today, Amazon announced that they have added a new smartphone to their lineup of Prime exclusive devices. Joining the list of discounted unlocked smartphones is the Moto G4 Play, which will be available starting September 15th for only $99.99. Pre-orders for the Moto G4 Play are accepted starting today.

Just like the other devices available under Amazon's Prime exclusive list, the Moto G4 Play will be displaying ads for Amazon's products and services on the device's lock screen. It joins the roster of devices available under Prime such as the Blu R1 HD and the Moto G, which is available for only $49.99 and $149.99, respectively.

Compared with the Moto G, the Moto G4 Play is an inexpensive smartphone that comes with lower-end specs. The Moto G4 Play sports a 5-inch display with 720p resolution and runs on a Quad-Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor with 2GB of RAM. It comes with 16GB onboard storage as well as a microSD card slot for expansion. There is also an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera, 5-megapixel front-facing camera, and a 2,800mAh battery powering the device. Upon release, the Moto G4 Play operates on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow and can be used across the four major networks in the US: Sprint, Verizon, AT&T, and T-Mobile.

Under Amazon Prime exclusive, the Moto G4 Play can be purchased at a discounted price of only $99.99. However, this comes with an agreement that Amazon ads can be displayed on your screen, even when it is locked. If you wish to get the device sans ads, you can get the standard version for $149.99.

    1. Not really. It was only made available for pre-order on Tuesday.

  2. Sounds like a fairly cheap phone to root, debloat and use on either Tracfone/Boom/Total (for the coverage) or RingPlus (for the promos).

    Otherwise, the $60 R1 HD is a better, more cost effective investment for either GSM carrier (providing you root and enable Band 12).

    With RAM growing as it is, $100 is just a bit too much for only 2GB when BF17 is just a year away.

    It's only truly worth it to get around CDMA's draconian restrictions on BYOD.

    1. is it easy to root the R1 HD? and can you then remove the amazon ads and bloat?

    2. The discounted ad-supported model (Prime $100) cannot be bootloader unlocked/rooted. Will have to get the standard model ($150) for that.

    1. "G4play is very good"

      I don't think this is a Moto "G4" play. I think it is a Moto G play. The G4's are a different line.

    2. "Earlier, the model was written as Moto G Play instead of Moto G4 Play. Corrections have been made"

      This is what threw me off, the article was not saying it was a G4...

    3. You can't root. And 2GB RAM is more than enough when paired with a 720p screen and stock android.

  4. Wonder which model will be $10 on black Friday 😃

    1. The Verizon Prepaid model of the Moto G4 Play. But it only has CDMA and LTE Bands 2,4,5,13. No GSM at all.

  5. Removeable battery but no compass sensor. See http://m.gsmarena.com/motorola_moto_g4_play-8104.php

  6. "the Moto G Play operates on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow and can be used across the four major networks in the US: Sprint, Verizon, AT&T, and T-Mobile"

    What LTE bands does it support? Does that make it a universal phone in the US?

    1. The Moto G4 Play supports LTE bands 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 12, 13, 17, 25, 26, and 41. It supports all the bands used in the US except AT&T bands 29 and 30 which aren't used much yet.

      Delete
    2. how important is LTE bands 29, and 30 today, and one year out? Also, how important is it for international travel?

      Delete
    3. AT&T has a bunch of band 29 and band 30 spectrum but they they've only deployed a limited amount of it so far. I'm sure they will deploy more of it but they haven't said where or when.

      Bands 29 and 30 are not used outside the US.

      Delete
    4. Additionally, where AT&T has Bands 29/30 deployed, it is not the only available band, so you won't be losing out on LTE coverage. At the very least, there will be Band 12(17) available as well, maybe even Bands 2/4.

  7. Will this activate on ringplus?

    1. It should eventually once Sprint adds the G4 Play IMEIs to its database of allowed devices.

      Delete
    2. It'd be a waste to put the G4 Play on RP.

      A phone like this deserves reliable coverage.

      Delete
  8. I'm confused on Amazon's pricing structure. How much is this phone if I'm a prime member but I don't want constant ads? Ads would drive me nuts. And do the ads cost you data?

    1. $150 for a rootable, unlocked, ad-free phone.

      Not worth it. At all.

      Delete
  9. comparing this phone to the R1 HD, which has 4G LTE Bands: 2/4/7/17
    12 will be available OTA(Over-the-air) according to the BLU website. either is probably fine for international use, right??

    1. They will both work out side of the US. The G4 Play will get LTE in more places because it supports more international LTE bands (3, 7, 8) while the R1 HD only supports band 7.
