The Moto G is a cheaper version of the Moto X that trades off several features like 4G LTE and a larger screen to arrive with an off contract price as low as $99 for some carriers. It won't match a $99 on contract smartphone head to head, but it is going to offer a lot to smartphone buyers on a budget.

The Moto G features a 4.5-inch 720p display and uses a Snapdragon 400 processor that isn't as powerful as the Galaxy S4 or HTC One, but it is capable of delivering performance that is fast enough for casual gaming and day-to-day use. The 4G connectivity is faster than 3G on AT&T, but Verizon's 3G speeds are pretty slow which is a knock against that version. Users get 8GB of memory and a 5MP rear facing camera that can record 720P HD video. There is no expandable storage.

The Verizon Moto G is $99 off contract at Amazon. There is a Boost Mobile Moto G for $99 on Amazon as well. For users looking to buy an off contract Moto G, Amazon sells one for $179 or a 16GB model for $199.

    Bro, 2 out of the 5 phones are flagship phones, that are even more expensive than a Nexus 5 (which is considered budget). How much research did you even do, to include flagship phones in a article about cheap smartphones? Oh, everything’s “cheap” when it’s subsidized, woohoo.

    These phones aren’t even cheap! Do some research before publishing articles. Don’t know how you got your job…

    Josh,
    I am a low income senior eligible for a California PUC “free” phone. PUC now allows users to use their minutes on a “smartphone.” I will need data only rarely but would like to know what would be the best least-expensive smartphones available to us “welfare phone” users?
    Many thanks.
    Amy
