The sub-300-dollar Motorola G7 gets high rankings from people who know more about technology than I do (which amounts to knowing that iPhones are not Android phones and that my iPhone doesn’t talk to my PC, which is annoying).

Also, I loved flip phones. Not because I’m a geezer, but because I like to carry a phone on my belt. And they’re back.

Anyway, now that I rent phones from my carrier—for not-small bucks—knowing that there is an affordable and highly rated alternative—check it out in easily absorbed, don’t-need-to-read-Wired language from cNet here—is pretty cool.

The phone gets high marks on price, camera, turbo charging, and battery life. Definitely worth a look. Your wallet might thank you. Text me!
