Want a cheap handset that is a bona fide smartphone, and still a pretty good one at that? Look no further than the original Motorola Moto G. Of course, we have been saying that since the handset launched two years ago, but at the moment the Moto G is even more of a bargain grab as Best Buy is selling the Verizon variant for just $19.99, and that's not with a contract by the way.Yes, for a one of payment of twenty bucks you can get a solid smartphone that was the budget king for a long time and still holds up today. You wouldn't even be able to get a solid feature phone for that kind of money, so we expect this deal will be gobbled up. There really is not a lot more to say, but a spec refresh is probably in order. The Moto G comes with a 4.5-cinh 720p HD screen, a 1.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of storage that can be expanded through micro SD card slot, and a 2070 mAh battery. There is an 8 megapixel camera around the back, while the device is even upgradeable to Android 5.0 Lollipop.
