Modern flagship smartphones can carry price tags of $1000 or higher. But mid-range phones have gotten pretty good in recent years, which means you can often find a pretty great phone for around $300 or less if you’re willing to opt for a slightly less powerful processor, a little less RAM, and maybe a camera that’s adequate rather than amazing.
Motorola’s Moto G series phones have a pretty good reputation for offering a lot of bang for the buck… and this week they’re available for a few bucks less than usual, thanks to Motorola’s back-to-school sale.
Students can also save an extra 15-percent.
