The first is the Moto G6 for $234.99. It packs a 5.7″ screen, 32GB of storage, 3GB of RAM, Snapdragon 450 1.8 GHz octa-core processor, 12MP + 5MP dual rear camera, 8MP front camera, 3,000 mAh battery, microSD card slot, and Android 8.0. it’s available in black or oyster blush (rose gold) and works with AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and Verizon.

Amazon is trying something new to entice Prime members to purchase one of their Prime Exclusive Phones. Right now, if you purchase the Moto X4 at its regular Prime discounted price of $349.99, you’ll get an Amazon Echo for free. This is the first time Amazon has ever bundled their own hardware devices with a Prime Exclusive Phone. It’s fitting that the Echo is included with the Moto X4 because it’s among the few phones that comes with hands-free Alexa capabilities. The Moto X4 was released in October and recently went on sale for the first time for $249.99 during a one day only sale. If you’re in the market for a new phone and an Echo, this is a pretty good deal.
The Moto X 4th Gen is on sale for $249.99 today only for Prime members. This is the Prime Exclusive Phone version of the Moto X4 that comes with Amazon apps preloaded but no longer has lock screen ads. The regular version of this phone is $399.99. The Prime Exclusive version has been $349.99 ever since it was released late last year, so this sale is $100 off the already discounted price. The Moto X4 is among the very few phones that feature hands-free Alexa. It packs in a Snapdragon 630 octa-core CPU clocked at 2.2GHz and a 650Mhz Adreno 508 GPU with a 1080p 5.2-inch IPS screen, 3GB of RAM, and 32GB of internal storage that is expandable through a microSD slot. The phone is available in either black or sterling blue, which looks more silver than blue, and works on all major US networks. This sale ends tonight at midnight.
Amazon revealed last week that their lineup of Prime Exclusive Phones would no longer contain lockscreen ads. Existing customers that purchased one of the discounted phones have started receiving updates that remove ads on their devices as well. As Android Police reports, Amazon is now being extra diligent in making everyone happy with the change by refunding the fee paid by customers who opted to pay for ads to be removed after purchasing one of the Prime Exclusive Phones.

Now that Amazon has announced that their Prime Exclusive Phones will no longer have ads on their lockscreens, updates are beginning to roll out to existing devices that removes ads. If your device hasn’t received the update and you don’t want to wait, you can remove the ads yourself by sideloading this APK file (mirror) onto your phone. It’s an official update from Amazon to the offers app that is already on your device. This APK was pulled from a Moto G5 Plus, but it should also work on other Prime exclusive Phone makes and models.
Amazon has announced that they’ll be removing lock screen ads from all of their Prime Exclusive Phones. Starting tomorrow, February 7th, all newly purchased phones in Amazon’s discount program will not contain ads or offers on the lock screen. Better yet, all existing phones will receive an update in the coming weeks that removes their lock screen ads. Read more ›

Amazon’s Prime Exclusive phones, which offer Prime members discounts on phones in exchange for lock screen ads and preloaded Amazon apps, have steadily added additional manufacturers ever since the lineup launched just over a year ago with Motorola and BLU. Since then, Alcatel and Nokia have made their phones available, but now LG has really livened up the lineup with four new models. The newly added LG X and LG Q6 look like decent alternatives to the Prime Exclusive phones from Motorola, but the new LG G6 and LG G6 Plus take things to another level with top-tier flagship specs at a $200 discount.
