In order to showing their ads, Amazon decided to be seller of the Moto G4 which is the latest iteration of the G series. We are offered with very tempting discount if buying the fourth generation of Moto G on Amazon, in total we only need to have $40 to bring the 5.5 inches smartphone.
But of course as I mentioned above, Amazon needs compensations for their own benefits by placing ads on lock screen. This is the consequence that you -- as buyers -- must bear. But that's fine considering the very cheap price compared with the phone's price if you buy it somewhere else.
Not only ads, Amazon also added bloatware to make things more hilarious for users to finally think their device's hijacked and forced them using things they not need.
If you feel sorrow with the ads and bloatware you can remove them once and for all, fortunately Amazon has made the process easy.
For those who haven't bought this phone, and read this post, then decide to get rid the intention to buy Moto G4 then don't be because you still can buy the phone from other place, but of course with higher prices.
However this offer only for US. therefore if you live outside the country, then you are not going to find this generous offer. So no worry.
