The normally $200 phone is part of the Moto G family, which includes the Moto G7 that earned a CNET Editors' Choice award. To take advantage of the deal, you have to go to a Boost Mobile store and switch to an unlimited data plan that's $50 or more.

The Moto G7 Play has a 5.7-inch display and a single rear camera. It has the same processor and rear fingerprint reader as the G7.
