Our Moto G6 review: the best Motorola phone around

Moto G6 review
Motorola is killing it with budget phones that don’t sacrifice on specs. Just a few years ago it didn’t seem possible that you could get a quality phone in the sub $500 range, nevermind the sub $300 range.

Enter Moto G6, the latest in Moto’s G series. Moto G6 has it all: flashy cameras, a beautiful screen, an all-glass design and a price that can’t be beat. It’s just $249 in the Ting Shop.

When less is more: A roundup of our favorite flip phones

Thinking about a feature phone that can talk, text and not too much more than that? This one’s for you.

A simple flip phone is easy on the wallet, has battery life that’s measured in days instead of hours and cuts digital temptation off at the knee. Feature phones also serve as a great backup and are a perfect gift for the technophobe in your life.

There’s a small but growing movement back to ye olde dumbphone (the counterpoint to a smartphone has to be a dumbphone, right?) While the appeal of having a pocketable computer with which to remain connected is undeniable, smartphones demand your attention. Perhaps too effectively. We’ve talked about going greyscale to resist the smartphone siren song but that’s a half measure.

Below, we’ve listed some of the most popular flip phones that are compatible with at least one of Ting’s two nationwide LTE network options.

 

1. Alcatel A392

$63 | Ting Shop | GSM network

Flip phones are so outdated they’re almost back in style again, and with the Alcatel A392, it’s clear why.

The classic flip phone was never as sleek as this device, featuring a 0.67-inch thickness that’s the definition of pocket-friendly and smooth styling. The sturdy casing and flip-functionality means you can say goodbye to butt dials and annoying lock screen passwords.

With up to 32 GB of storage with a MicroSD card, there’s lots of room for music and files or even videos and pics, if you are content to view them on the 2.4-inch screen. Easy Bluetooth connectivity and large keys make it easy to use, even for the tech-phobic.

The Alcatel’s audio playback is surprisingly strong for a flip phone, and even includes built-in FM radio. For added convenience, an external screen keeps you updated on date, time and status when you’ve got the phone closed.
