The Moto G6Moto G6 Play and Moto G6 Plus all were unveiled last month and are available starting today in some countries like Brazil. The Moto E5Moto E5 Play and Moto E5 Plus were also introduced last month, on the same day that the G6 line was announced.

The Moto G6 will be available for postpaid accounts in the U.S. at Verizon. Besides the nation's largest carrier, pre-paid providers like TracFone, Ting, and Republic Wireless will offer the model. The device will also be found universally unlocked at retailers like Best Buy, Walmart, Target, Fry’s, and New York City's own B&H Photo. The MSRP is $249. 

The Moto G6 Play will be offered to postpaid customers at AT&T. Pre-paid customers at Boost Mobile and Cricket Wireless will be able to buy the model, which will have the moniker of Moto G6 Forge. Other pre-paid carriers offering the phone will include Verizon, Ting, Republic Wireless and Virgin Mobile. Retailers selling the universally unlocked variant of the unit will include Best Buy, Target, Fry’s, and B&H Photo. The phone will be priced at $199

The Moto E5 Plus will be available to Sprint's postpaid customers, and subscribers of pre-paid carriers like Boost Mobile and Cricket Wireless (where it will be known as the Moto E5 Supra). U.S. pricing has yet to be determined, but in Europe the phone costs €169.

The Moto G6 and E5 lines have some interesting specs for such low priced phones. The G6 models all feature the modern look with an aspect ratio of 18:9. The Moto E5 Plus also carries an aspect ratio of 18:9 for its 6-inch HD display, but its claim to fame is the 5000mAh battery that keeps the lights on. For those who don't want to spend a fortune on a new phone, one of these models should fit the bill.
