Specifically unlocked? What's your budget? 4g? Which provider are you using?

Metro PCS has a nice LG Optimus L70 for $50.

Is the Moto G worth considering?

Yes, it's a very solid budget phone. Not all models have a micro SD slot and LTE, so if you want those, make sure you get the right one.
However, according to Wikipedia, "the Moto G is available for Verizon, Republic Wireless, Boost Mobile, Sprint (Sprint Prepaid), Cricket Wireless, U.S. Cellular, StraightTalk and Consumer Cellular customers." (Straight Tall probably means on Verizon).

Another vote for Metropcs l70.  Don't buy it in store they wont let u walk out with just the 50 dollar phone. You have to wait till it comes in stock online and they sell it quick.  They have free shipping label back for returns so shoot first and ask questions later. Phone is than easily unlocked to other gsm networks via ebay seller for approx 2 bucks.

Would love to see this device in person.  Looks like a really nice option for those that like smaller devices.

I'm looking for something ~$200. Decent camera, accurate gps, good battery life.  No heavy apps, like games or videos. Just things like Gmail whatsapp waze bank apps etc. Thinking about one of the new Nokias coming out (5.1 3.1 2.1). Does anyone have one of the models that these are an upgrade of?

Consider the new Motorola Moto G6. I think it is a bit better specced than the Nokia 5.1 and you also have the benefit of CDMA and Project Fi network support, should you ever want.
