Cheap smartphones — we mean really cheap, off-contract smartphones — are terrible. They’re tormented by horrid, pixilated screens, they’re slower than your grandma, and they feel like they’re held together by Scotch tape. The $249 Moto G is none of those things. It definitely has significant shortcomings, but put simply, you can’t get a better cheap phone.
The last thing you want to do after buying yourself a sleek, ultra-slim laptop is muck up its lovely form factor with an ungainly mobile WiFi hotspot hanging off a USB port.

It’s Friday morning, and already the heat is on. I finish off my third bottle of water and look back at my phone for the building I’m meant to be visiting. My cab driver and I have already circled this block for 10 minutes searching for it. It’s a building with no name, no number, and no desire to ever be found by anyone.
