Republic Wireless announced that it is offering the entry-levelsmartphone for $129 without a contract. It has also reduced the price of the first-gen , which was released in 2013, from $149 to $99.
The carrier is known for its cost-conscious pricing structure, with monthly plans ranging from $5 to $55 depending on a user's data preference. It uses Wi-Fi as a default, but switches to Sprint's network when the former is unavailable. With the addition of the Moto E, the company now stocks all three Motorola Moto variants (it already sells thefor $299).
As for the device, the Moto E features the recent Google Android mobile operating system, Lollipop 5.1, a 4.5-inch display, and a 5-megapixel camera. Though its photo quality and 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 410 processor failed to impress, the phone's ultra-low price tag makes it a worthy option for those on a budget.
