For a company consistently outside the world’s top five smartphone vendors, Motorola-owned Lenovo has certainly been getting a lot of attention lately with its extended family of discounted mid-rangers and a potentially exciting flagship comeback story.
That’s right, the leading “Un-carrier” (and its top prepaid subsidiary) is willing to give you this non-stylus-supporting 6.5-inch mid-ranger for free… under certain conditions.
We’re not talking about anything too restrictive, clunky, or even unusual for these types of carrier promotions, where Magenta requires a new wireless service and a monthly payment plan and Metro asks you for an existing phone number of someone else. mobile network operator.
That’s pretty straightforward and easy to claim, but perhaps the most unexpected is how much? T-Mobile and Metro by T-Mobile will charge for the new Moto G 5G (2022) if you don’t want to (or can’t) meet those requirements.
This particular version of the MediaTek Dimensity 700-powered device is significantly cheaper than an unlocked model to start with, at $222 and $229.99 respectively, which makes sense considering it packs 4 gigs of RAM and 64 gigs of internal storage. . as opposed to a 6GB memory and a whopping 256 gigs of local digital hamster space.
Still, the value for money here is arguably strong too, as the rest of the specs are unchanged, including a 5,000mAh battery that’s said to last up to two days on a single charge, 90Hz screen refresh rate technology, good old-fashioned headphone jack, microSD support and a primary 50MP rear camera.
