Hey, just a thought. I know that most want the newest phone, but I have picked up a couple of used Moto e 4.5 inch or moto g3 5.0 through 2nd hand local outlets. Of course you’ll have to be very aware of what you are buying. New is best, but I’ve had great sucess so far. It has made me very happy to then purchase from Republic this latest time around, which we did. (an old stock g3 several months ago)
addendum: If you are looking at moto e phones, be aware that the operating system could be kitkat or lollipop. I don’t recommend the kitkat, especially if you are using it as an entertainment device for vudu. (vudu runs now only on 5.0 or newer) Kitkat moto e phones have been a bit quirky in my experience, we just had to replace one (hence the got it used) Any other questions feel free to ask me. Not that I’m an expert by any means.
