Wait Because the Wait Is Almost Over
If you're in need of a budget phone just wait a few weeks longer. If you have to get one now, that's a bummer. While phones from 2017 are nice, the new Moto E5 and G6 are great devices for the price.
Motorola announced both phones at an event near the end of April, and confirmed the Moto E5 release date is coming "this Spring". Then, we recently heard from Verizon that the Moto E5 Play is available today, while the better and bigger E5 Plus is coming soon. We're expecting most carriers in the US to offer this cheap phone around May 24th. Not to mention Walmart, Target, Costco, Amazon, and other retailer and etailers.
So, in just a few weeks you'll get a great phone for under $200.
