The Motorola Edge+ is still a very new device on Verizon's shelves, having been released around one week ago. And yet, the carrier is already offering a sweet deal on the phone.
Normally priced at $999.99, the Edge+ can now be yours for just $799.92. Note that this may be a limited time offer, but Verizon isn't saying. Even so, it's a bit weird to see a 20% price cut within a week of launch, so this might imply that the carrier hasn't been moving a lot of units at the recommended price.
In our in-depth review of the Edge+, we noted that its price in the US and lack of a lot of competing brands that one can find in Europe and India means that the Edge+ is actually a decent flagship contender, expensive as it may be. Well, now it's just become more affordable, and plays in an entirely different league at this new price.
The only caveat, which you may have seen coming, is that you need to use Verizon's device installment plan to buy the Edge+ if you want the reduced price. Effectively this means you'll pay $0 down and then 24 monthly installments of $33.33. You can have the phone in Smoky Sangria or Thunder Grey.
If you switch to Verizon on an Unlimited plan, you'll also get a $150 gift card. And if you trade-in an eligible device, there's an additional up to $550 price reduction waiting for you.
True, a lot of people fall for the marketing and think their $1k smartphone performs and takes pictures twice as better as a $500 option but the difference is closer to 5-10% better (if that in some cases) yet they still pay double the price for such...
