In the wake of the company’s upcoming Moto G6 series launch, Lenovo-owned Motorola on Monday announced a permanent price cut on the Moto G5S. The midrange smartphone has received a discount of INR 5,000 (US$ 76) and is now available for its new official price of INR 9,999 (US$ 152). The smartphone can be purchased across Moto Hubs, Amazon.in, and offline retail partners in Fine Gold, Lunar Grey, and Oxford Blue color variants.
The updated lineup will likely include the Moto G6, Moto G6 Play, and Moto G6 Plus, and these phones can be expected to make their way to India soon enough. Going back to the Moto G5S, the phone was launched as a special version of the Moto G5 and sports a metal body design with a chunky build that makes it quite solid and firm.
The Moto G5S currently runs Android 7.1.1 Nougat and is expected to receive the Android 8.0 Oreo update soon. It features a 5.2-inch Full HD IPS LCD with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels and comes with Gorilla Glass 3 protection.
In terms of performance, the Moto G5S is powered by a Snapdragon 430 SoC coupled with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage, which can be further expanded via a microSD card. For photography, there is a 16-megapixel rear camera with PDAF along with a 5-megapixel front-facing camera and LED flash.
However, the phone may look a little outdated now compared to its competition as it doesn’t sport an 18:9 display and is yet to receive Android Oreo.
Even though the price drop is only now official, the phone was available at the lower price for quite some time now. Flipkart, which is not one of the authorized sellers for this phone, sells it for an even lower price.
Buy a Pixel 3 on Verizon and get another one for free
Verizon’s BOGO deal is the best so far
After all the leaks, the Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL are now official. Both come with bigger screens, better cameras, and sadly, higher prices. If you want to get them at a more reasonable price, you could check out Verizon’s offer in the US.
For a limited time, you can buy one Google Pixel 3 or Pixel 3 XL through Verizon with monthly device payments for 24 months, and get a Pixel 3 (64GB) for free.
It’s basically a buy one, get one deal for the base model. If you wish to get a better variant, you can use the US$ 799.99 credit to get any other Pixel 3 or Pixel 3 XL model.
Of course, there’s a catch to these deals. Verizon wants you to add a new line to one of your Pixel 3 phones. Seems like a pretty fair deal, right? Pre-orders are now open through Verizon’s website.
The Pixel 3 phones are available in Clearly White, Just Black, and Not Pink colors. The Pixel 3 starts at US$ 33.33 per month for 24 months on Verizon device payment (US$ 799.99 retail price), while the Pixel 3 XL starts at US$ 38.74 per month for 24 months (US$ 929.99 retail price).
Razer Phone has major discount ahead of successor launch
From the official source
Just as Razer subtly announced that the Razer Phone 2 is on the way, their original Razer Phone is experiencing a major discount on the company’s website.
Go the Razer Phone’s official product page, and you’ll be greeted by this text:
“Limited time offer: Get US$ 300 off your Razer Phone. Use Code WOOHOO on cart.”
This deal brings Razer’s one and only phone down to just US$ 399 from its original US$ 699 price tag. That’s a discount of about 42 percent!
That’s great for a gamer-centric smartphone with hardware that’s still competitive with this year’s best. However, Razer didn’t specify how long this promotion will last.
In our own review, we praised the Razer Phone for its great balance of power and entertainment features, as well as the long-lasting battery and incredible display.
Even if the Razer Phone 2 is bound to show up soon, grabbing the first-gen model at this price is a steal.
ASUS ZenFone 5 gets its price slashed in early holiday sale
It’s about time!
We’ve just entered September, and you know what that means? The holiday season is starting in the Philippines!
Yes, it’s premature, but this also means we’ll be seeing more discounts and sales from our favorite brands. The latest one to do so is ASUS with its popular ZenFone 5.
The company’s flag-bearer got its price slashed from PhP 19,995 to only PhP 17,995. There doesn’t seem to be a limit to this promotion, so you can taking your time in considering one.
The ZenFone 5 is best known for its AI-powered cameras, 6.2-inch display with a 90 percent screen-to-body ratio, and reliable Snapdragon 636 processor.
ASUS may have also been considering the rising competition from rival brands when discounting this smartphone. Honor has a bestseller in its hands with the Honor Play, and the Pocophone F1 is gradually finding its way to more markets this month.
