Hello I'm looking for a smartphone (preferably Android) on a budget of about $125. It would be nice for it to be running 6.0 OS, and 3GB RAM. Does anybody have any ideas? Thanks.

I haven't read the article the FE points to, but one of the reasons I chose a Motorola phone was the long-lasting charges reviewers noticed, and mine hasn't disappointed.

It's a Moto G 2015 3rd gen, which may be within your price range by now. It has quite a large battery (making it quite heavy, but that does have its upsides).

The Moto G third generation was a very good phone, but the Moto 4, launched this year has been referred to by reviewers as a huge step forward.

It costs a bit more - you'll get a 16Gb model for around $250 - but if you want something nearer to your $125 budget, go for the Moto G third generation at around $130 to $150 from Amazon.
