Motorola’s budget smartphones have gotten a boost in 2022, and the latest Moto G 5G is no exception. The phone, while cheap, performs better than you might expectb while offering a straightforward experience for anyone in the market for an affordable 5G smartphone. Thankfully, Prime Day makes this already cheap phone even more affordable, slashing its price by 30% (opens in new tab) and bringing it down to just $280.

At first glance, the Moto G 5G (2022) doesn’t seem like anything special, but this is a good example of “it’s the inside that counts.” The phone is powered by a MediaTek Dimensity 700, which does a great job at keeping this phone snappy and responsive, particularly when paired with 6GB of RAM.
