Project Fi has great deals on two Motorola phones for Black Friday. If you’ve been interested in trying out Project Fi, this looks like a great deal to get started: Get the Moto G6 for $99 or the Moto X4 for $149 on Project Fi. Greg has been using the Moto G6 on Project Fi and has written about his experiences with it (See: My Google Fi experience so far). If that has intrigued you, this is a pretty cheap cost of admission.
- Get a Project Fi Moto G6 for $99 or Moto X4 for $149 with activation on Project Fi
- Direct link to this deal (though you’ll want to sign up using a referral link to save $20 — see “Key Terms” below this)
- Must pay for at least 1 month of Project Fi service ($20), but you can offset that by signing up through a friend referral link and getting $20 credit (here’s Greg’s)
These prices are terrific if you’ve been thinking about getting into ProjectFi. You do have to activate the phone for at least 1 month. That month costs a minimum of $20, which can be offset by signing up through a friend referral link (which gets you a $20 credit) – see Greg’s referral link under “Key Terms” above.
Other phones are also on sale, but the Motorola ones are the best current deal.
If you’ve never used a Motorola phone, you might be pleasantly surprised. They have a number of innovative software features — simply twist your wrist to activate the camera, shake the phone like a handshake to activate the flashlight, some can automatically sense when you’re driving and read your text messages / speak your caller ID info and allow you to answer without even looking at your phone, etc. I’ve owned several Motorola phones and loved them except for the fact that the cameras don’t perform well in low-light (which is ultimately why I switched when I had a baby — I knew I’d be taking more and more photos). I can’t vouch specifically for the G6 and X4, and the G6 is obviously a more economical line, but I’m generally a fan of Motorola phones even though they don’t get the press that other devices do.
And Greg has clearly been pretty happy with Project Fi. I considered buying a G6 to use as my new primary hotspot device, but one other drawback for those in rural areas is that none of the current Project Fi phones support T-Mobile’s Band 71, which is the long-range LTE band they are slowly rolling out in rural areas. The absence of that band, which very few current phones support, will not be a deal-breaker for most, but in my case I’d prefer to either have Band 71 support or a Samsung phone with Samsung Pay capability.
Still, those interested in Project Fi can’t do much better than this for a point of entry. Just don’t forget to activate the phone within 30 days or I believe you’ll be charged full price. I believe this promotional pricing is scheduled to last until 11/27, but it could certainly be pulled early.
