Even though Motorola has already taken the wraps off a new big-battery Moto G9 Power handset while unsurprisingly working hard on a Moto G Stylus 2021 mid-ranger as well, the early 2020-released Moto G Power (aka G8 Power) and G Stylus might still be worth considering this holiday season.
But if you thought those things were cheap, wait until you hear how much the G Power and G Stylus are available for right now. With an instant $100 discount, the Snapdragon 665-powered handsets go down to $149 and $199 respectively, but when you take Google’s complimentary Fi credit into consideration as well, you’re basically spending nothing here. Nada. Zilch. $0.
Namely, you’ll have to activate your preferred 2020 Moto G-series model on the same Google Fi account actually used to purchase the phone, and do so on a “full service plan” within 30 days of receiving your shipment confirmation email. You’ll then have to remain active for a measly 30 consecutive days and accept that the free credit can only be used for monthly service costs like data, calls, texts, and device protection rather than the costs of the phones themselves.
At the end of the day, it might be harder to decide which of these two handsets to buy than whether or not to take advantage of this sweet Black Friday deal, as the Moto G Power has a gargantuan 5,000mAh battery going for it, while the G Stylus comes with a, well, built-in stylus in addition to some extra storage space and better cameras.
