Discounted Moto G6 Now Available on Amazon Prime Exclusive

moto-g6-amazon-prime-exclusive
For anyone who wants to save money on the purchase of a new phone, Amazon Prime Exclusive is an option worth considering. This is because the devices they offer under this membership program do not come with an expensive price tag.

In exchange for a few hundred dollars, the device comes with some modifications that Amazon has added onto the device. One of these modifications is the presence of lock screen ads, which are normally not available on these phones. But if you want to save up to 25% on your phone purchase, dealing with these ads aren't that bad.

Amazon Prime Exclusive carefully picks out certain models to offer to its customers. Ever since the program started, Motorola devices have been part of the selection. As a matter of fact, the Moto G4 was among the first devices that entered into the program. And now, after two years, a new Motorola smartphone is being offered as an Amazon Prime Exclusive device.

Earlier today, it was announced that the Moto G6 is the latest device to be entered into the program. Instead of paying $249.99 for the Moto G6, you can get it at $234.99 from Amazon Prime Exclusive. This gives you a discount of $15. You can also get it with free same-day shipping if the option is available in your location.

The phone comes with a 5.7-inch 1080p display. It runs on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 processor with 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, and microSD card slot expansion. There is a dual camera configuration on the back with a 12-megapixel and 5-megapixel sensor. In front, another 8-megapixel camera is available with LED flash. The battery is also 3,000mAh.

The Moto G6 is essentially the same as the non-Amazon version. The only difference can be seen on the software side of things, especially since the Prime Exclusive variant comes pre-installed with several Amazon apps like Prime Video, Kindle, Amazon Shopping, and more.

A few months ago, Amazon announced that they will be removing lock screen offers and ads due to the evolution of smartphone technology. With features like facial recognition and fingerprint sensors, Amazon has kept up with change to ensure their customers get the most experience. In its place, Amazon has arranged a Special Offers widget that will be displayed on the home screen.

If you decide to get the Amazon Prime Exclusive version of the Moto G6, you can expect to see these ads appear from time to time. But you can easily remove these ads and hide the built-in Amazon apps; especially if you have no plans on using them anytime soon.

  1. $15 is too small of a discount. I plan to buy from bhphoto instead, and get the unlocked version without Prime stuff for $250.

    1. I agree. No need for the intrusive Amazon software ( maybe even spyware to some degree ?)

    2. Google 'spyware' is friendlier than Amazon's?

  2. That's not a good enough deal, I'll buy mine at Best Buy for $249.99

  3. 5.7 inches? Good Lord who can hold these phones? 4.7 is also too big. Hope < 4.5” phones make a comeback...

    1. +1. Motos have been too fat after the Gen 1 G and E models. Sony Compact models might suit.

    2. I thought the same when I first saw the specs, but after buying the G6 Play (same dimensions), it's not as bad in person as you might think. The screen size increase comes from the height of the screen, not the width (it uses an 18:9 aspect ratio), so the phone is still quite usable one-handed. It's only a tiny bit taller than my Samsung Galaxy S7, and almost exactly the same width.

      Delete
    3. 5.7" 18:9 has same width as 5.2" 16:9. It's just longer.

      5.7" inches is a great size to use and see. Wait until the phones are over 6" before you complain. Sub-4.5" phones need to completely vanish: they only existed before due to cost considerations that don't apply any more. Thank God we don't have phones that are too small to see like this with touch screens that are too small to tap controls.

    5. 5.7" is WAY to big as a convenient phone unless you are a giant.
      It's fine for two-handed texting and surfing; video; and mounted navigation.
      The only thing God created here is the size of our hands.

      Sorry, the choice of phone buyers is proving this to be an ideal size for human beings.

    7. "5.7" is WAY to big as a convenient phone unless you are a giant."

      I am guessing you are some sort of mutant with tiny mitts the size of Dobby the House Elf's. If this is such a problem, just use the phone with two hands!

      click here for an informative graphic of sales trends. What is happening in the trend here? It's not the average size of human beings growing 3" every couple of years, but it is the cell phone makers aligning to what people need.

      And what do they need? Almost all need phones from 5" to 6". The 5.7" segment is a huge and growing part of this. Painfully tiny phones with screen sizes from 4" to 5" are falling away.... these were only ever made because back then it cost way too much to make a properly sized, usable 5.7" phone.

      Now you can get a nice 5.7" phone for $150 or so, so that is what people go out and do. Because it meets their needs; the needs of average human beings.

    8. It's ok, Donald. Your hands are normal sized no matter what anyone says :) 5.5" like my Axon 7, or 5.7" like my previous Note 5 or the 5.7" like the Note 4 before that is way too big for most people. I also loved the 6" ZTE Grand X Max+ I played with a few years ago, but you're right - normal people with your sized hands stick with iPhones and iPhone SEs.

    9. 5.7" is a fine size for most people. Quit whining.. it's hard to imagine a phone too big to use but it's very easy to imagine a phone too small to use.

      5.7 inch phones keep making an ever larger and larger proportion of sales exactly because people want them.

      And if you have tiny hands just use two hands ... problem solved.

    1. Can't buy Fi phone w/o a plan.

    2. @e.mote -- sure, but then you can cancel your Fi service immediately, while still keeping the phone that you paid for.

  5. This is only good for price matching at best buy and getting $50 off with airtime.

  6. i thought the savings on these phones were 25%?

  7. I can't see putting up with advertisements for the life of the phone just for a one time price reduction. In the case of the Moto G6, the savings did not amount to much.

    Keep in mind that the advertising software will probably be snooping into the user's personal business.

      If you care about that, you should just dump Android.
      I agree that the discount is not worth the annoying ads.

    2. "If you care about that, you should just dump Android."

      It's no better or worse than with an iPhone. If you are really worried about this sort of thing, get a Windows Phone or carry a carved bar of soap in your pocket: either way, no apps and no spying.

    3. You don't know iPhone. Apple stores virtually everything on the iPhone, encrypted and uses it to serve you. Google sucks it into their servers, reads it and sells your info so companies can push ads at you. BIG difference.

    4. Total FUD. Why are iPhone fanbois so blissfully ignorant.

    5. Looks like Cupertino has you fruitys where they want you - don't think they aren't harvesting data, they just aren't as open as Google about it. Remember the whole battery debacle? And yet how many times did apple declare iphones weren't being slowed down? Glad you feel comfortable with the fruit-cake company holding your data.

    6. "You don't know iPhone....Google sucks it into their servers..."

      You don't know iPHone users. The typical iPhone user used Google Maps, Gmail, and Google search.... yes, its pretty much the same as with Android users.

      You are kidding yourself if you think most iPhone users use Mapquest, Hotmail, and Duck Duck Go.

      Delete
    7. "The typical iPhone user used Google Maps, Gmail, and Google search"
      Can you back up this statement with any facts?
      Even if all this is true, it means that Google, not Apple is scooping up your personal info, reading it and selling your interests to advertisers. Easy to avoid if you're using an iPhone.
      As for Hotmail, Microsoft admits they read your mail and report you to authorities if they see something suspicious. It's in their privacy policy.
      Apple stores your location data and Maps history encrypted on the iPhone. They don't read your Mail or Messages. And DuckDuckGo does not save your searches as you know.
      Apple will send you all the info they store about you on Apple servers. Ask them. You may be surprised just how little they save about your mobile usage. Don't be surprised that their CRM captures all the details of support calls and visits for every Apple ID and device checked and repaired. That just makes sense.

    8. The typical iPhone user indeed Google Maps, Gmail, and Google search... You are intentionally trying to deceive if you are trying to divert attention from the fact that the overwhelming majority of all platform users is DS3. Including iPhone users.

      Sure it's easy to avoid these if you're using an iPhone. Just says it's easy to avoid them if you're using Android. No different at all.

  8. The Amazon discount price is a joke. Better get it full priced and unlocked, with no bloatware...

    1. I've gotten one phone on this. If you are like a typical American, you will use most of those Amazon apps anyway. And they can be removed... both of which makes the term "bloatware" pretty much inapplicable.


      If you want to see bloatware. get a Verizon phone loaded with apps nobody uses or wants, that you can't delete.

  9. Besides the obvious amazon widget, it will probably come boitloader locked like previous prime phone offerings so not good for custom ROMs enthusiasts.

  10. This device is going for $199, do not know what gotchas are there. Why the Amazon route, this is the question a savvy one should ask herself.

    Come Black Friday it will settle down in its price and as well soft/hard ware bugs.

    Its not that Uncle Joe is without a phone and cannot wait to grab this Motorola puppy!

  11. Had terrible experience with a previous Moto phone with Amazon ads. Sucked power and rebooted randomly - sometimes in the middle of a call.
