The Motorola Moto G4 Play is Now Available On Verizon Prepaid for $85

motorola-moto-g4-play-verizon
Earlier today, Verizon announced the latest smartphone to join in on its roster of prepaid devices. The Motorola Moto G4 Play is the latest entry-level device that can now be purchased through Verizon. 

Also known as the Moto G Play, the Moto G4 Play is considered as the smallest and cheapest among the latest devices manufactured by Motorola. It comes with a 5-inch display panel with a resolution of 720x1280 pixels and runs on a Quad-Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor with 2GB of RAM, 16GB onboard storage, and a microSD card slot for memory expansion. The device has an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera with an f/2.2 aperture along with a 5-megapixel front-facing camera. Powering the device is a 2,800mAh battery and Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow.

The best part about this announcement is the fact that the Moto G4 Play can be purchased for $85 without the need for a contract with the carrier. Apart from the $85 price tag on the Moto G4 Play, it can also be purchased for $149.99 unlocked and $99.99 from Amazon Prime.

  1. I'm more interested in the 64GB Plus.

    If there's anything to be said about modern phones, it's that they still need a lot more RAM.

  2. Beware: Verizon model is not the same universal model sold on Amazon, Best Buy, etc. This Verizon model does not have all the LTE bands of the inlocked model.

    3. Found this elsewhere-
      "Of course Verizon has their own specific model with cut down LTE bands. Do not recommend for anyone that isn't on VZW

      LTE: B2, 4, 5, 13 "

      Still might be a good deal vs the Amazon phone just want Verzion only and not put up with the ads.

    4. Appears to be the Mototola XT1609 model - CDMA 850 and 1900 and LTE bands 2, 4, 5 and 13.

    5. Good looking out! I was going to buy it for a friend but if it's not unlocked and can be used on GSM/CDMA network I don't want it!

  3. It's a good price considering most prepaid phones under 100 bucks has a 5mp camera, and 8gb of memory. It should sell well for big red.

  5. Snapdragon 410 should not be used anymore, the baseline should be 617.

  6. Not enough memory on the Moto G4 Play. 2GB/16GB should be standard these days. Ill wait waiting for a price drop on Moto G4 Plus version .

    2. 1GB of RAM and a 32GB SD card will be more than enough for most consumers.

      If it functions as your go-to computer, that's when things get a bit more costly.

      You'll want 32GB of native storage for app data and breathing room, a 64GB/128GB SD card for extra storage (depending on your needs), and at least 4GB of RAM to run the OS and a few apps without any lag or hassles.

      But since it'd currently cost ~$325 for a solid 2-year device, while a $500 PC from yesteryear with 8GB of RAM could last 5, solid-performing smartphones still haven't struck a good balance between price and longevity.

      With that being the case, the G4 Plus will wind up a non-starter for misers, deal hunters and the genuinely impoverished.

      By the time it drops in price, Cricket will be selling 3GB Nougat devices with 16-32GB of internal storage for pennies on the dollar.

      At that point, the still $200 G4 Plus will fade into obscurity like literally every other unsubsidized flagship and mid-ranger that set the price too damn high for anyone other than people who can piss away hundreds of their own (or their parents') money.

      Anyway, it'll probably be a rootable/unlockable Alcatel, LG or Samsung that hits the right price point before a Motorola ever does.

      Even though they were going in the right direction with the Moto E 2nd, they stopped significantly upgrading the series with the development of the 3rd, sentencing the formerly relevant E series to lag behind, stagnate and become mere disposable burners for people who just don't care.

  7. Darn that Verizon crippled it like they have done with other phones. It must be just software so that it can be undone?

  9. " the Moto G4 Play is considered as the smallest and cheapest among the latest devices manufactured by Motorola. It comes with a 5-inch display panel "

    I'm glad that 5 inches is considered to be small now. Hopefully the era of "too small to use" phones is long gone.
