Moto E Review: A cheap smartphone worth buying

Motorola_Moto_E_Main_TA

If I asked you which phone is Motorola’s best selling phone of all time, you would probably answer with the Moto X. You would be wrong as it is the Moto G, which is a budget phone. Budget phones are generally laughed at, but they happen to part of the fastest growing segment. With 70% of the worldwide population using a flip phone or feature phone, they are unlikely to upgrade to a flagship when they finally join the smartphone craze. They could opt for a Moto G, but Motorola is now offering something that is even more budget-friendly. The Moto E promises to be built to last and priced for all. You can’t argue that $129 isn’t an amazing price for a contract free and unlocked smartphone, but is it too good to be true? Well hit the break to get started.

AT&T offering $50 of Google Play credit after purchasing new phone or tablet with new contract

google play att deal

Well folks, the title says it all.

AT&T will be giving away $50 of Google Play credit to customers who purchase a new phone or tablet (with a new 2 year contract) from now until June 17.

After you purchase a new device, you’ll have to redeem a code. From that point, the code will expire on May 15, 2015. You’ll have to have (or create) a Google Wallet account before you redeem the code, though. The cool thing about the deal is that you can purchase up to 10 new devices and you’ll get the $50 credit on all of them, so you can buy new phones for the whole family.

It is an online only deal though, so make sure you don’t make your orders through the store if you want to take advantage of the deal.

Both of these rumors focused on a device with a 7-inch screen. One suggested the device will be released in South Korea as the Samsung Galaxy W while another rumor indicated Samsung intended to classify the device as a smartphone even though it shared a screen size along the lines of a tablet device. Now some entries from the Zauba import tracking web site indicate Samsung is working on a 6.3-inch device that could possibly be coming to AT&T. Read more
