    If all three were the same price would you go for the Moto G Play, Moto G4 or a manufacturer-refurbished 16gb Moto X Pure?

    Do not see where the Moto X Pure has an FM Radio. Both Moto G4 and 4Play have the FM Radio. Saves a lot of data if you like to listen to the radio (Like me)... I am on Verizon towers, so the Verizon Moto G4 Play is the best deal for me.

    You're correct, the X Pure does not have FM radio.

    That's good to know about the FM radio, although, personally, I don't think I'd miss it, so it's not a deal breaker for me.

    myun,
    How much for the refurbished Moto X Pure and what's the warranty?

    The Ebay used mint unlocked Moto G4 I referenced earlier has dropped in price from $129.99 to $124.99.

    But if it were me I would wait for the Moto G4 Play from B&H Photo to drop down in price to $99 again. Depends on if you are willing to wait a couple months to see if that happens. A brand new unlocked Moto G4 Play for $99 with a full warranty from a good seller - hard to beat.

    Around $195 for the 16gb with a 90 day warranty. Do you think that's good? (I was theoretically asking if it were the same price as the Play.)
    I think I might be concerned about 16GB not being enough memory, I think Marshmallow is supposed to take up quite a bit?

    I am considering waiting to see if the play goes on sale again. A lot of people seem to think it's a good phone. I am having a hard time justifying spending full price on it now though, but I don't know if there's any way to predict it going on sale again any time soon. Either way, this phone purchase is going to be a major purchase for me since I don't have a lot of money to work with, but at the same time, I want to get a phone I can get a lot of future use out of and not have to replace any time soon. That's why I was debating whether to save up for the Moto X Pure or not.

    It has expandable memory, so no worries. Having said that, I have the 16GB model and it's just fine, but on the other hand I'm not a power user.

    The X Pure has a microSD card slot, so I wouldn't be concerned about the 16GB of internal storage. If somebody doesn't agree with that logic, please post. Thanks!

    When the G 4 Play went on sale for $89.99 at B&H, I think it was a very good deal. When it went up to $99.99 at B&H and stayed that price for a couple of weeks, I think it was still a good deal.

    But at $149.99, if I needed a phone right now, I'd be very tempted to spend the extra $50 to go to a G 4 or a "like new" refurb X Pure for $200, and would probably lean toward a "like new" refurb X Pure.

    That being said, my wife is happy with the Moto G 4 Play XT1607 that we got when it was $89.99.

    She previously had a Moto G 1st generation, originally purchased from Koodo in Canada.

    The Moto G 4 Play XT1607 isn't a huge upgrade from the Moto G 1st gen, with a few of the bigger differences being compatibility with all cell networks, a user removable battery, a microSD card slot, and a bigger screen. One of the biggest advantages of the G 4 Play is band 12 and T-Mobile certification for extended range LTE and VoLTE, since she is using a T-Mobile business plan.

    See T-Mobile's 700 MHz A Block Spectrum Extended Range LTE Band 12 VoLTE Compatible Devices at http://www.spectrumgateway.com/compatible-phones .

    My wife is a basic smartphone user and plays only basic games on her phone. The battery on her G 4 Play XT1607 lasts over 2 days per charge for her.

    So you had 11GB free internal storage out of the box out of 16GB total?
    How much do you have free now?
