Start Your New Year Right with a New Smartphone from Boost Mobile

By Danielle Babbington


According to a recent article from Time.com, the two most common New Year’s resolutions involve health and financial goals. If you are already sweating just thinking about hitting the gym why not start with setting a few financial resolutions that will help keep money in your pockets. You might be thinking – how will a new cell phone help me save money? I am glad you asked – let me explain!
 
Boost Mobile, a leader in the no-contract wireless industry
with its exclusive Monthly Unlimited plan with Shrinking Payments, latest smartphone, the Moto G will be available Tuesday, Jan. 14, at www.boostmobile.com and select Boost Mobile exclusive retail stores nationwide starting Jan. 20.
 
Priced at only $129.99 (excluding taxes), Moto G packs the features you want at a price that won’t break the bank, all without an annual contract. The affordable 3G smartphone comes with an impressive and highly durable 4.5-inch HD screen made with scratch-resistant Corning® Gorilla® Glass and sports a super-fast 1.2GHz Qualcomm® Snapdragon quad-core processor. Moto G is loaded with Android™ 4.3, Jelly Bean, with a guaranteed upgrade to Android 4.4, KitKat, expected as early as February, making the Moto G the most up-to-date Android of any phone in its class. You also have the freedom to express yourself with a variety of colorful interchangeable backs, available from Motorola directly.
 
Moto G is offered on Boost’s no-contract $55 Monthly Unlimited plan. Boost Mobile rewards its customers for simply making on-time payments. Unique from the competition, for every six on-time payments, the cost of the Boost Mobile Monthly Unlimited plan shrinks by $5 to as low as $40 per month for unlimited nationwide talk, text and data[1]. Payments do not need to be consecutive to qualify for the next savings milestone.
 
Moto G will come preloaded with the free interactive FM radio application NextRadio®. With NextRadio, listening to FM radio on smartphones is a new type of interactive radio listening experience. When compared with streaming, NextRadio consumes about three times less battery life than other music apps. That’s because the audio is coming through a built-in FM tuner instead of over the Internet.
 
For extra protection, Moto G has a water-repellent coating on the outside, meaning that a little rain won’t get in the way when taking a call. In addition, you get an extra 50GB of Google Drive storage for two years and, as with all Android devices, Moto G owners have access to more than 1 million apps and content in the Google Play Store.
 
Additional key features of the Moto G include:
  • 5-megapixel enhanced camera with panoramic and continuous shot
  • All-day 2070 mAh battery
  • Stereo Bluetooth® 4.0 capable
