Amazon Prime Members Get 50 Percent Off Unlocked Phones

...

Amazon Prime members can now take advantage of exclusive pricing on a selection of new unlocked Android smartphones.

Starting today, subscribers can pre-order the new BLU R1 HD for $49.99 and the fourth-generation Motorola Moto G for $149.99—a $50 discount on both. For a limited time, however, the Moto G4 will be discounted even further to $124.99 (16GB) or $154.99 (32GB). Both phones go on sale starting July 12.

The Android-based phones are unlocked, so no contract. You will, however, have to contend with personalized offers and ads displayed on the phone's lockscreen—a tactic Amazon uses with its Kindle e-readers. Tap to learn more about an offer you like or simply unlock the phone to dismiss. If you don't want ads, you'll have to buy the phones at full price.

"Customers love the freedom of unlocked phones—it's the fastest growing category within cell phones on Amazon.com—so we set out to find a way to make them even more affordable for our Prime members," Laura Orvidas, vice president of consumer electronics at Amazon, said in a statement.

The 5-inch BLU R1 HD smartphone features a curved Gorilla Glass display, wide-angle 5-megapixel front-facing camera with LED flash, 8-megapixel rear shooter, and 1.3GHz quad-core processor. It is also available with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage, or 2GB RAM and 16GB of storage. Both versions have microSD card support for up to 64GB of additional space.

The Moto G4 is compatible with all major CDMA and GSM carriers, and boasts a 5.5-inch full HD display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 chipset with octa-core processor, 2GB RAM, and 4G LTE. You'll also find a 13-megapixel rear camera and 3,000 mAh battery with TurboPower for fast charging. The 16GB and 32GB variants include microSD support for up to an additional 128GB.
