Some of the very best smartphones of the year also happen to be the best cheap phones, too. Case in point: the Moto G5 Plus masterfully strides the line between budget and premium in both its overall design and performance.
The Moto G5 Plus is $169 on Newegg, it's cheapest price ever just ahead of Black Friday. And it includes a set of free Motorola Bluetooth headphones, all of which is well below its regular asking price of $299.
This model, which features 32GB of onboard storage (and can be expanded with its microSD slot), 2GB of RAM and incoming Android Oreo support is a worthy fit for casual phone users as well as those who put their tech to task.

Cheaper than Moto G5 Plus on Amazon
Amazon sells a discounted version of the G5 Plus that features lockscreen ads and offers, but that’s even $70 more expensive than Newegg’s amazing deal. So this may be the best deal we see even through Cyber Monday 2017.
Before you buy, it’s always good to know if a phone will work on your network, and good news, the G5 Plus works with GSM and CDMA carriers alike, including AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint and Verizon.
