    Two years ago, the original Moto G redefined the concept of the affordable smartphone. In a world where even midrange devices commanded $300-$400 unlocked, Motorola's game-changer debuted at just $179.

    What can you buy for $96 now a days? If you're thinking about smartphones, the most that'll get you is a cheap Lumia, or a very cheap-looking Android phone in some cases.
