Moto G5 Plus "Prime Exclusive" edition with a major security drawback

All current Amazon Prime Exclusive deals

Most Amazon users have heard about its “Prime Exclusive Phones” program. In case you haven’t, essentially it’s a selection of phones, sold by the company at a significantly lower price. But there is one catch – all devices come with lockscreen Amazon offers and ads. Twitter user by the name of Jaraszski Colliefox got another “exclusive” feature as well – a way to break through the lock screen of his Moto G5 Plus without entering a password or fingerprint. 

Hey @amazon @MotorolaUS. I …

Deal: Unlocked Moto G5 Plus is just $170 ($60 off) on Amazon

One of the best mid-range Android smartphones in the $200 price range, the Moto G5 Plus is now on sale on Amazon for much less than the original price. The US retailer offers the unlocked version of the Moto G5 Plus for just $170, so customers will save $60 when they buy it.

Of course, we’re talking about the 32GB storage/2GB RAM model, which comes without Amazon offers and ads. The Prime Exclusive version isn’t on sale, so you’ll still have to pay $230 if for some reason you really want this specific variant.

Deal: T-Mobile LG G5 on sale for less than $200, works on all GSM networks

The G5 should have been one of the most innovative flagships launched by LG, but the phone quickly turned into a big disappointment. The “modular” aspect of the LG G5 wasn’t as appealing as the South Korean company thought it would, and so the flagship didn’t sell that well.

Still, when a flagship drops to less than $200 after just one year, it becomes as interesting as the new high-end smartphones. LG G5 is now on sale for just $199 on eBay, less than 55% off the MRSP.

Even Amazon has the unlocked version of the LG G5 on sale for $249.99, so the eBay deal …

Battle of the budget champions: Moto G5 or Nokia 3?

Despite being nowhere near the top-tier class of phones, a few handsets still stirred emotion and drama this year, as they were flying towards the store shelves and the anxious hands of reviewers. Those are Motorola’s budget G and E series phones, and Nokia’s new offerings.

Why drama? Well, Moto is in the hands of a new owner — Lenovo — and the Nokia brand is now controlled by a new entity, known as HMD Global. Everyone was curious to see what the new owners of both brands would do with their budget phones. And, we would say, they didn’t do half bad! In fact, it doesn’t seem like a lot has …
