I posted this yesterday in the Audiobook deals thread. I should've cross-posted it here too.

In my semi-eternal quest for a replacement for my old/defunct Samsung Galaxy Players, and my old Moto E 2nd gen, whose Android is getting a bit long-in-the-tooth, I decided to try this one.

And although the E6 is a little too big with a 5.5" screen (the Moto E was 4.5" and the Galaxy Players even smaller), at this price, with the 20% additional rewards points, it seems worth a try. At least it has a microSD card slot, which the much better-sized IMO Palm Phone doesn't - sigh!

One other thought, since the 25% is actually a 20% rewards points bonus, in addition to the normal 5% bonus, on what is charged on your Prime credit card, I suspect one should not let the checkout use existing gift card credit instead of the credit card. At least I didn't - I suspect it might not pay the bonus if it's on a gift card, and not on a Prime credit card. Maybe someone else will know if that's the way it works or not, but I just wanted to be on the safe side, so I made sure the whole total charged to my Prime credit card.

Thanks again, @tubemonkey!

YW

I was thinking about this phone too and pulled the plug late last night. I ordered two and expect delivery later today.

It's nigh on impossible to find a decent phone in the 4~5 inch range. So for $16 (after the 25% discount), I figured this will do to tide me over until I find something I really want. I really have nothing to lose.

I read some reviews and they weren't kind, mainly because the specs were inferior to other comparably priced phones. Since I'm not using it as a phone, I really don't care. I'm using it strictly as a WiFi device and its specs are a huge improvement over my Moto E2 and LG Volt.

I'll give my impressions after I get it.

I have two concepts for my wish list.

The first is a music (ideally jazz) CD box set.

The second is Criterion Collection DVDs which may go on sale.

Thanks!

From what I've seen, Criterion's prices are out of sight. Fortunately I recorded a few hundred movies back when they were included with Hulu...

Looks like the E6 phone deal is over. They all show up as near $40 now. Terms and conditions stated the deal was good til midnight Oct 18. I missed it! Wait is the price posted here for card holders only? That must be it. No card, no deal! Figures.

In the past I've gotten good deals on Samsung SD cards. If you need several, PNY sometimes has nice discounts on multi-packs...

Edit> Be careful with no-name products. If you go that route, make sure to check every piece to confirm the advertised capacity - I've had to return flash drives that were labeled 16GB but actually only 1,2 or 4GB.

It's easy to tell I follow your advice , because I too have the Moto E2 and LG Volt from past years, and like them both. But as you say, both are getting old spec-wise, and mine are kind of beat up, since they are my toss-it-in-a-bag-and-don't-worry-about-it units, and also the batteries on all of mine are getting iffy. I have my fingers crossed (as you do) that as a non-phone mini-tablet/mp3 player/ereader, the E6 will be okay, especially since I've really liked my two E2s. We shall see...

Yeah, this offer is restricted to Amz Prime credit card holders with active Prime memberships.

Still, that was mighty lame of Amazon to raise prices while the sale is still active.

I got the phones a few hours after I posted and so far, I'm very impressed. It's a keeper. The only drawback so far is the size. That does not impress me.

Anyway, I have two cases on order that'll arrive today. Later on, I'll give a short review of the phone.
