An exceptional phone at an affordable price

Motorola phones with impressive specs at a great price aren’t hard to come by these days. You’re spoiled for choice, really. So what sets the Moto G6 Play apart from the pack?

Never has a phone looked and felt so good for just $199. We’re serious. Today, you can own a phone that takes amazing photos in all kinds of light, powers through a day and night on a single charge and is built with intuitive skills that make using this toy (or tool, depending on how you look at it) a joy.

Our guide to wireless charging technology

One day, here at Ting HQ, we looked around and noticed a lot of us had wireless charging phones, but none of us were making use of wireless charging technology on a regular basis.

Truthfully, when we got those phones, we were pretty excited about the idea of tossing our phone on a wireless charging pad and forever ditching the cluttered world of cords and adaptors.

Every year, we see mobile data use spike in the summer. That’s because more people are away from Wi-Fi. Most of us are out and about, at the beach or on a road trip, enjoying the warm weather. The problem is, we bring our phones with us, and are more likely to use Google Maps to navigate and stream our favorite playlists on Spotify.

The same way you wouldn’t go outside in the summer sun without sunscreen, a hat and water, there are a few simple saving tips and tricks you can take with you to protect your phone and your bill too.

Why we love Motorola cell phones

Our guide to Motorola cell phones

It’s no secret that we talk a lot about Motorola cell phones here on the Ting blog. Over the years, we’ve been impressed time and time again at what they’re bringing to the table: smartphones that do it all at incredibly affordable price points.

Let’s take a walk down memory lane. Remember the first and second gen of Moto E4? These phones were rapidly closing the gap between what it meant to be a budget smartphone and a flagship. Fingerprint sensors, Google Assistant, long battery life and more, with a Moto you didn’t have to spend a lot to get all the latest features. Then there’s Moto X. We still get a little nostalgic when we think back to this one. Moto X was all about customization and personalization. Moto Maker let you attach different backs right onto your phone for a unique look that ranged from plastic to leather to bamboo. And then there was Moto G5 Plus. If you’re a frequent reader of the Ting blog, you know how much we love this phone. Smooth performance, solid specs and at $299, we’d never seen anything like it before.

While we find ourselves pining for the Moto X of old, we’ve got to admit, Motorola cell phones have continued to rise to the occasion, exceeding our expectations for what a smartphone should be and how you didn’t have to spend up for a superior smartphone experience.
