Comparison: Moto X vs. DROID ULTRA vs. DROID MAXX vs. DROID Mini

moto x white

We had a couple of readers ask that we compare the Moto X to the other recently announced phones for Verizon (DROID ULTRA, MAXX, and Mini), but since review units for the new DROIDs aren’t currently ready, we’re stuck looking at the four on paper for now. This is a quick spec comparison to show you the subtle differences in each phone. Some differ in display size, battery capacity, and of course, they almost all differ in price.
We’ll compare the Moto X to other OEM flagships here in a minute. For now, here is your new Motorola line-up, on paper. 

Update:  After you are done here, check out the comparison of the Moto X to the Galaxy S4, HTC One, and Nexus 4.

motorola specs

  • GoBlue

    Wow the Droid Maxx is looking better and better

  • Tyler

    I’m torn between the x and the maxx. Both have their pros and cons. Just need more info to make a decision.

  • Theguyoverthere

    I am confused. One of the big selling points was that Moto X support wireless charging, but in the comparison it says No.

    • GoBlue

      They never said wireless charging… There is none.

    • Joshua Kirchmer

      with you on this, and I’ve seen elsewhere say it does support it.. what’s the story?

  • Xious

    So a big question is what are the benefits of the Moto X over the Maxx? I would like to think the Moto X will have better dev support, but is there anything about the phone that makes the Moto X better?

  • prestone1

    heres to hoping LG can do something with the g2. maxx/one are last resorts. damn you verizon, damn you

    • prestone1

      assuming g2 is even going to vzw :-

  • StankyChikin

    I almost see a small business in custom ordering the Moto X for people over seas…

  • George264

    The thing I find extremely bizarre and I don’t know if anyone else noticed, but the Ultra has a supposed 28hr usage, with a smaller battery than the X and a larger screen. what is even logic?

  • Nick Saulino

    So the Moto X is the Droid Ultra?

  • Crackerjack06

    What about the radios? Does the DROID line have the dual LTE chip as well????

  • tyguy829

    What the hell? How does the ultra get 4 more hours of usage with a 70mah smaller battery and a bigger screen?

  • shecalledmejay

    Comparing the Droid Mini and the Moto X. It seems like the Moto X should be worth an extra $100 lol

    • LiterofCola

      Especially since you can get it with 32gb internal storage

      • violator702

        For Att you can.

        • LiterofCola

          That’s right, that was an AT&T exclusive

  • john salas

    And the droid mini has better ppi than the other droids and the moto x

    • Tyler Durden

      Because its smaller

  • Rob Delaney

    Am I the only one thinking that if Moto would have just put a 1080p screen on the maxx with a S600 or better processor you would have the best phone of the year to date?

    • calculatorwatch

      Also the most expensive phone of the year. But, if Moto is able to sell the world on their seamless user experience, they’d be well poised to offer a super high end phone that only rich and/or gadget obsessed people can afford.

  • Charlie R.

    Just remember, the 32gb Moto X is an AT&T exclusive.

  • MGardnerDA1235

    Why is the Mini so comparably heavy? Since when is 4.3″ ‘mini?’

    I guess it would really just work for smaller hands and they made it thicker to keeper the same stats.

  • Walter Partlo

    When do we get a Moto X maxx?

    • Tyler Durden

      Moto X Maxx Ultra FHD

  • http://techonblogger.ward.pro/ Stynkfysh

    I’m thinking Moto needs to spread out their phone launches. 4 in month or two and then none for a year seems like short term overkill and a lot of lost interest over the course of a year.

  • ranlil

    My contract on VZW runs out in October and I have unlimited. I’m hoping by then that there are more options to buy off contract. So far, my Bionic is holding on.

    • Jack3D

      Your options will be to buy a Moto X on Swappa…

      Everything else in US will be higher end, and not cheaper.

    • violator702

      I heard the Galaxy Note 3 is dropping next month.

      • schlanz

        I believe that’s just an unsubstantiated rumor at this point, and if true would merely be an unveiling, not a release. VZW probably won’t get it until November, assuming it launches on other carriers in October.

  • Tyler Durden

    Why even make the Moto X?

    • guest

      moto x is for the rest of world,droids are exclusive to verizon ..

  • JoeTi

    I still want confirmation of the GPU chip (Adreno 320) on the Droid line. Is the x8 system on chip the *exact same*?

  • Jeff

    What about the “Dual MIMO” antenna? Do the new DROIDS have this feature like the Motto x? Seems no one has confirmed this either way.

    • Walt Danker

      I have this question too. I am really leaning towards the Maxx, and want to know what features are in the X but not in the Maxx. The bigger battery and memory are too enticing to pass up in order to get the color scheme I want. Are there other reasons to chose the X?

      • Jeff

        Exactly my dilemma. Having the dual antenna is a real benefit, but it isn’t being promoted much.

  • bionicwaffle

    They’re all pretty similar except the Droids have better battery life and much more usable screen real-estate because the displays are a little larger and they have off screen buttons! I would take the Droid Maxx for sure. I really wish they had MicroHDMI instead of SlimDisplay.

  • jaredgreenwald

    i wonder why they opted for no wireless charging on the X…

    • RedXander

      My guess would be size restrictions. Another reason could be the atypical battery form factor.

    • Walt Danker

      My guess it the ‘pyramid’ shaped battery. That may make wireless charging to difficult

  • Brian Kircher

    So am I correct to say that the Droid Maxx and Ultra do not have a pentile display?

    • LiterofCola

      Don’t think so

      • Brian Kircher

        You don’t think what? U don’t think I’m right, or don’t think the maxx and ultra have pentile displays?

        • LiterofCola

          I don’t think they have pentile displays, sorry for the confusion.

    • Jordan Webb

      They’re RGB, the Pentile people care about is RGBG.

    • Lucky Armpit

      Correct. Same display as the Moto X, only a little larger.

      • Brian Kircher

        If they are the same, why wouldn’t the PPI be the same?

        • violator702

          Same display on Maxx and Ultra. PPI is higher on X and Mini, because their screen sizes are smaller.

          • Brian Kircher

            Gotcha, that’s kinda what I was thinking. Thanks for the help.

  • jose

    Do we know if the 32gb version of the X will be on Verizon? Initial thoughts yesterday were no…

  • 2Berad

    wireless charging?

  • Shaunwin

    Time for Note 3 news!!!

  • RoadsterHD1

    I’m getting the Droid MAXX.

    • Tyler Durden

      I don’t even know why they made the Moto X.

      • Jordan Webb

        I can see why the X. I can’t see why the Ultra. Waste of resources.

        • LiterofCola

          Yup, couldn’t agree more

        • chris420o

          but the ultra is super thin!

        • Mario II Valenzuela

          Contractual obligations.

      • http://twitter.com/Mr_Esquire_K Iron_Catastrofe

        To give Moto a device outside of the Droid lineup that will be available on all of the carriers. People may not be too happy here with certain aspects of the phone, but as a whole I think its a smart move if Moto wants to build success again like Samsung for example.

        • Tyler Durden

          They won’t be anywhere near Apple or Samsung until they make a high end phone that people can even compare to other phones.

          • JoshGroff

            ‘Murica! I wonder if you can get an American flag back for it.

          • King Lo

            The Moto X goes toe to toe with the iPhone and the S4. No usage test has proven otherwise.

      • starnovsky

        Customization options, I guess

      • itsgonnalast

        For women.

        I’m guessing that women (generally speaking) want more color options, less aggressive advertising and less focus on specs.

      • TylerChappell

        No, what we really don’t know is why they even made the Droid Ultra. Oh wait, I know why. They did it just so they could have a $299 contract phone in the Maxx.

      • Justin W

        I don’t even know why they made the Droid Line again.

    • schlanz

      Certainly seems like the better choice provided $ isn’t a factor in one’s purchasing decision. It’s a beautiful device in person, more than you would think going off press renders, with ridiculous battery and ample internal storage. Plus the cherry on top with wireless charging.

      I can’t think of a reason to get the moto x other than for better development support? Which even then, given the architecture of these phones is identical, I can’t see it being all that much better in that regard. Or if you really want a wooden phone or some other gimmicky material like kevlar ;)

  • Tay

    So why should I buy the X and not the Mini?

    • bagheadinc

      Reason 1) If you’re not on Verzion.
      Reason 2) You want an extra 16GB and are willing to pay $150 extra for it.

      • Tay

        I’m on Verizon, and 16GB is enough for me.

    • RedXander

      The largest reason for me would be the bigger AMOLED screen. This allows only only certain parts of your screen (pixels) to be powered. This is pretty big for that new notification system in terms of saving battery. The second is wireless charging; my poor GNEX USB port has been through some abusive car chargers.

      The cosmetic/customization differences are of less importance to me although I’m not big on Kevlar.

      • Tay

        I guess I can understand the display, but other than that I see no reason to pay the extra price. All I want is a decent sized battery. My contract is up in January, so I may just go for the S4.

        • RedXander

          Keep in mind that the S4 is a 2600 mAh battery (only 400 over the MOTO X) and is probably a little more demanding of the battery as it has a bigger screen/larger resolution and larger CPU footprint.

          However, with the S4 you can remove the battery, keep a spare, or even upgrade to an extended battery (although it might as some bulk).

  • WalkerNA

    Leaning towards the Ultra Maxx mainly because of the battery. If Verizon could customize the X, that might carry more weight.

    • Jordan Webb

      Yeh, especially if the 16gb is all Verizon gets at the start. Then it’s really just out for me.

      • Lucky Armpit

        You guys need to post a link stating that as fact, or please stop repeating that until if becomes fact. Thank you.

        • Jordan Webb

          I used an IF/THEN statement, not a statement of fact…it’s a consideration, but not set in stone.

    • Skittlez

      end of the year they’re getting that functionality

      • WalkerNA

        I’m not sure my Droid Charge can wait that long

  • JamesU513

    I’m wondering if the Moto X Google Play Store Edition will have the same features (Active Display, Touchless control and quick capture) because I think they’re cool. I know, probably not.

    • blix247

      Not if the other two phones currently on the play store are any indication. Its pretty safe to say it will be stock, and will lose those features as a result.

      • Peter Blanco

        At which point there will be little to no reason to buy the Moto X GPE unless you just really like the design of the phone. I doubt they are going to offer customization for such a small market.

      • Skittlez

        not really sure. The HTC One kept the Beats audio feature.

  • DrAndyRoid

    While the Moto X is aesthetically pleasing, I don’t think I’m very interested in it. Especially since the Maxx has a 3500mAh battery. Not sure I want a “droid” branded phone either though. Guess I’m still sticking with my Verizon “Nexus”.

    • Jordan Webb

      Is the Droid branding really that terrible? I mean, the original Razr commercials and stuff were the peak of horribleness, but they’ve toned it back. The only downside is you have to change your ringtone immediately when you get one.

      • DrAndyRoid

        It has nothing to do with commercials. I’m not the type of user that even really pays attention to the commercials. I’m not particularly fond of the design of the Maxx, but the battery life appeals to me. Some of the features seem useful, but I’m just not sold on it yet. I’d rather play around with the device myself before I decide on which phone to throw $500+ at.

  • Bryan Saroza

    does no one care that the moto x is only on 4.2.2? did i miss something

    • RedXander

      I’m up and down on this. It’s arguably not a big update for most and there are rampant rumors of it causing major issues on the Nexus 4 (boot loops, heat, sluggishness). If they are releasing it with 4.2.2 to put their best foot forward, I can understand it.

      Would be a nightmare to release a phone with major issues because they tried to use a version that wasn’t AS thoroughly tested and doesn’t add much functionality.

      • EC8CH

        4.3 is awesome. At least on my N7.

        • RedXander

          Is it because you had a first gen and it fixed your Trim issues or are there new features that you are using? Is the performance noticeably better?

          • Bryan Saroza

            does TRIM only affect the nexus 7 only or other devices running anything <4.2.2

          • RedXander

            To be honest, I do not know. I simply don’t have the device exposure but if you’re concerned about it for a specific device, I would look at XDA-Developers for that device. I’ve heard rumors it has done wonders for some with the GNEX but I have yet to try it.

          • EC8CH

            1st gen… seems less laggy even though I was already manual trimming with lag fix. Battery seems a little better too.

      • Bryan Saroza

        thanx for the response. i guess i’m more concerned then if it is going to receive 5.0 when that comes out or is it going to be handled like any other OEM?

        • RedXander

          As someone previously mentioned, having it on all four carriers seems to cause updates to be quicker and more frequent. I imagine this is because carriers with the same phone don’t want to seem like the inferior option. Then there’s Verizon…

        • jnt

          In the Verge’s video, the Moto guy made it sound like the updates will be faster than before simply because of their strategy of keeping the OS so close to stock Android. In other words, there will be no OEM / carrier speed up, but there will be less for the OEM / carrier to tweak and approve when updates come out. In more other words, it won’t be like a Nexus device, and for Verizon users, I would think at least 3 months from release to users, at the earliest.

          • chris125

            Tell that to the galaxy nexus….

          • Skittlez

            GNex took 6 Weeks. I say 2 months

    • Skittlez

      moto is influenced by google right now, not completely being made by them. Plus, that version was just released 1 week ago. Relax. Some of the GPE phone don’t even have it yet. Check on the video on Engadget about the X. It explains a lot

  • Walt Danker

    The battery life of the Ultra and the X does not make sense. Ultra has bigger screen, smaller battery and higher usage. How is that?

    • EC8CH

      yeah that’s weird

    • Alex Goings

      I am also curious about this

    • KleenDroid

      When was the last time you believed battery stats?

      • EC8CH

        can’t i at least expect them to be consistent lies?

      • Walt Danker

        I never believe them per se, just think that a single manufacturer would fudge their data consistently . . .

    • CraigBoyte

      Could be because of the “always on” voice thing that the X has (I will be honest I don’t know if the Droid line has it, but if it doesn’t that could explain it)

      • Jordan Webb

        The Droids do have it. I’m assuming that the Verizon marketing team is choosing a different battery life metric (talk time?) than the Moto marketing team (“mixed use”).

        • CraigBoyte

          That makes sense then, just different metrics

    • woodraskam

      Do the DROIDS have the dual LTE antenna? That ‘could’ be an explanation.

      • calculatorwatch

        Isn’t the dual LTE antenna supposed to improve battery life?

    • Justin W

      I believe Vzw mixed up the two stats, so they show incorrect everywhere the device is listed on their website. That was the theory when they revealed it and it was shown that way on their website.

  • Gnex

    “It’s important to note that all custom models sold through Moto Maker
    will ship four days from the time of order (made possible by the Ft.
    Worth, TX manufacturing facility) and arrive with unlocked bootloaders.
    If you choose to go the carrier route, only T-Mobile and Sprint will be
    offering unlocked models from the jump.”

    Source: Engadget

    • Peter Blanco

      If this is true… Fuq.Yeah.

    • EC8CH

      I think we are going to need some more specific confirmation if that is going to be the case on Verizon or not. I think we all have reason to be a little skeptical of that, even though we really hope it’s true.

    • JonathonFlores

      So what do you do, buy this and unlock? (you still have to wait for updates? or go with a nexus?

      • Gnex

        I’ll probably buy the X from motomaker. I HIGHLY doubt Verizon will be getting a real Nexus any time soon.

        • JonathonFlores

          I’ve made my mind up and decied to use an upgrade for a non nexus device and probably get a nexus with a gsm carrier. probably tmo.

        • Justin W

          Off topic, but how did you get bold to stick? I’m using Chrome and anytime I use italics or bold, it’s saved as plain text.

          • Gnex

            answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20110611170510AAOBAet

            I’m assuming that’s what you’ve been doing, but oh well. If that doesn’t work then Chrome is just a wiener.

          • Justin W

            Gotcha – I just used CTRL+B or CTRL+I, which shows it as bold or italic, but doesn’t actually post it that way.

            Edit: And it works! Thanks for the help! :)

          • Gnex

            NO PROBLEM. Glad I could help.

          • yup

            <<<<< just hit the back button and go to an answers website

          • Justin W

            So, I go to the home page of Droid-Life and search for an answers website? Nice try.

  • Jeff Miller

    On a side note…Droid Maxx no contract on Verizon site is listed at $699 Woooaahhh

    • EC8CH

      typical inflated retail pricing…

  • http://www.droid-life.com Kellex B

    Fixed network listing for the MAXX.

    • RoadsterHD1

      Can you please compare benchmarks for all four phone? Moto X Droid Maxx Ultra and Mini? Please, and can we see AnTuTu and Quadrant STD. Thanks man…

      • LiterofCola

        They might have to wait until they have the phones in hand for testing

    • LiterofCola

      Thanks for this comparison btw

    • Lucky Armpit

      Thanks for the comparison and the quick fix!

  • Geekdad

    Only the Maxx can stand up to a day of Ingress. Decision made.

  • Eric

    So all the same except the Moto X looks nicer and is on all carriers but how is the Maxx HSPA+ on verizon?

    • Jordan Webb

      It has an HSPA+ radio like a lot of HTC stuff does – should realistically work on any network if you can get them to unlock it for you.

    • LiterofCola

      Dont forget the Maxx’s bigger battery, screen and wireless charging capability (also on the Mini)

  • stabone

    According to that the Maxx doesn’t have LTE. Just like Verizon to make you pay more for less.

    • ddpacino

      That has to be a lie.

  • Dan Richards

    is it me or does the droid mini come out on top in terms of what you get for the $

    • RedXander

      I disagree. You pay $100 to lose wireless charging but get a larger AMOLED display that allows the new notifications.

      • Dan Richards

        Fair enough. Personally between the Mini and the X, I don’t see much use in the the Ultra and Maxx

        • RedXander

          Agreed, very similar and mostly down to preference.

        • Under the bridge downtown

          Battery

          • ddpacino

          • JoshGroff

            I was wondering how that had anything to do with his comment, and then I read the username. >.>

      • jnt

        So the Mini really is LCD… i.e. no active notifications… too bad.

      • I’m right about this

        FALSE. The Mini has Active Notifications.

        • RedXander

          Not saying it doesn’t but it (probably) uses more battery as the whole screen would need to be lit. If you look at programs like NOLed in the play store, it roasts batteries on LCD displays.

          • I’m right about this

            It’s billed as “super low power” just sayin it “allows it”

    • Daniel

      I agree with you, the screen might even be nicer since it’s the same exact resolution, but smaller, so denser. Also the phone is overall smaller and fits in your hand better. If you’re on Verizon it’s a tough choice, but the Mini is a totally smart option unless you want pretty colors ;-)

    • bionicwaffle

      I just love the fact that it has an LCD! Too bad the “better” Droids and Moto X can’t have a bright display like the Mini. So I wonder if has a real notification LED since it can’t do Active Display?

      • Jordan Webb

        I hope so. Would be kind of lame if it didn’t.

    • Jesus d

      The mini has an LCD, so I would say no.

  • stabone

    The MAXX is one X away from being a porn name.

    • EC8CH

      why does Moto love the letter X so much?

      maXX
      X
      Xoom

      • Paul Hansen

        Because we are part of Generation X? :P

  • jnt

    The Mini isn’t Amoled??

    • jnt

      Also, the Mini has wireless charging, but not the Ultra?

  • Gnex

    They’re all pretty similar, but the X isn’t butt ugly. IMO.

    • Daniel Dlugos

      Was thinking the same thing. I thought Google was going to “streamline” Motorola’s product portfolio…..?

      • ddpacino

        Google Exec said a few months back that they needed to clean out what was already in Motorola’s pipeline…

        • KleenDroid

          How long can we use this line.

          • ddpacino

            T
            hose Droids were the last of the line. We already have the first device out, post-acquisition.

          • Jordan Webb

            I don’t really see how these are old moto devices. They have all the power of the X, they’re just packaged differently for Verizon. They’re not going to stop making DROIDs anytime soon.

          • kixofmyg0t

            Except that Ultra development STARTED after Vanquish(RAZR HD) hit market. Moto was already Google owned by then. The Ultra lineup is actually from the new Moto.

      • jnt

        Well compared to what they used to do, even with the Droid lineup, they’ve significantly decreased that portfolio.

      • King Lo

        You don’t just kill a valuable brand, before you get your next brand off the ground. That’d be like Burger King coming out with a new sandwich and suddenly stop selling The Whopper.

        • Jonathan Williams

          That made me hungry

    • EC8CH

      the Maxx ain’t all that bad.

      • Gnex

        Yeah, I agree. The gloss is what kills it for me.

        • RoadsterHD1

          The Ultra has the glossy back. The Maxx is matted.

          • Gnex

            That was my point :p

        • LiterofCola

          Yeah I’m there with ya. The gloss is a bonerkiller. The Maxx’s back is much better.

        • diksalotamous

          like you won’t put a case on it…

      • schlanz

        The Maxx is downright gorgeous in person. Can’t speak for the glossy Ultra. Or the Mini.

        • diblo

          mini…. 4.3 in screen… iphone 5, 4 in… lol

        5 inch screen, 32 gb, and a 46 hour battery kind of puts the max in the lead for $50 dollars more, and didn’t K say they have the same software inside as well?

        • LiterofCola

          Yep, he did.

      The gloss on the Ultra makes it look gross, especially the red one. I don’t mind the look of the Maxx though.

        Have you seen it in person? I’m curious if its as bad as it sounds. Also, if you’re using a case it’s hardly an issue.

      They just HAD to but capacitive buttons on them… They just had to ruin them with those darn capacitive buttons… Blah. BBBBBBLah.

        And dat chin.

        • Senor de los Cielos

          dat chin is the worst design choice ever. LOL

          • JoshGroff

            Motorola is good at making bad design choices.

        • schlanz

          The chin isn’t nearly as offensive this time around since its not as long and the space is occupied by the capactive buttons. The Razr HD was just a big, pointless chin.

            I agree with schlanz. The Maxx is only 8.2 mm (0.32 in) longer than the Moto X. The Maxx has a larger screen with the buttons separated from the screen. This is a matter of preference, but I prefer the larger screen, larger battery and more storage available on the Maxx. In the photos, the X looks much nicer. I am glad to hear that the Maxx looks better to you in person than the photos.

        Well lets be honest with ourselves for a second. It’s still better than HTCs stupid capacitive buttons or Sammys capacitive/physical home button mix.

        And I realize I may be in the minority here, but I like larger screens and the on screen buttons effectively make the screen smaller. So I prefer capacitive in most cases.

        • E. Tasche

          Yeah, I just set mine into a tablet layout – uses about the same in the nav bar region, but the status bar gets shoved in there with it. Been using that setup for about a year now and I am pretty much certain that they should all be sold like that if the screen is over 4.6″. Obviously not everyone has that option, because it has a few dependencies not every person & phone can meet.

        • LiterofCola

          Yup, we’re the minority. I’d so much rather have capacitive buttons than Samsung’s home button. Haven’t tried on-screen buttons yet so I’ll reserve judgement on those.

          • Rambir

            On screen buttons are better in some ways, like options, and worse in others like accidentally pressing the buttons and taking screen size. If you root it, you can make the buttons anything you want.

        • Von_V

          I agree…I prefer the capacitive buttons to free up screen. I have a Maxx HD, love it….this is exactly the phone I wanted..5 inch screen buttons off the screen, massive battery, near stock android, only gripe Verizon bloatware. For me this is a near perfect phone.

    uhhh droid maxx hspa and wifi 4 the radios…

  • Steve Giralt

    The network on the Droid Ultra… HSPA+ but no LTE or EVDO? On Verizon?

  • bagheadinc

    Wait…why doesn’t the DROID MAXX have LTE listed?

      Shit…fixing.

      • DrAndyRoid

        I was going to say the same, but I knew it was just a typo.

      • bagheadinc

        Oh good, I was worried I had missed some terrible announcement about the specs. :P

  • J.A. Hart

    There all the same phone -_-

        I read it as “There! (points at desk) All the same phone.”

    Does anyone know if the Verizon 12 month payment plan still exists? Whenever i go into a store and ask they look at me like I’m crazy.

    • Peter Blanco

      It hasn’t started yet, but don’t do it. You’re going to end up paying almost 300 bucks more than you should have.

    • RoadsterHD1

      I talked to then not to long ago cause I want to keep my unlimited data. They told me I could do a 5 month payment plan for the retail cost of the phone and keep my current plan. I’m not sure they are doing the 12 month plan anymore but they are doing a 24 month payment plan but not for unlimited data plans.

      • Hayden7200

        I just talked to my local store and the guy in there said they can do a 24 month payment plan that will not affect my unlimited data.

        • RoadsterHD1

          Are you serious? Did you mention upfront you had unlimited data? Did you confirm with another rep? That’s really good news, I’m going to push for that. Thanks

          • Hayden7200

            Yes, I made sure they could do it without forcing me to switch to a Share Everything plan. The guy I originally started talking to didn’t know much about the payment plans so he brought over a manager who said they can do the 24 month payment plan on the full retail price of the phone. And that it’s a separate contract from my phone plan contract. I’m in Washington state, if that matters at all.

      • http://thebeeobee.com/ thebeeobee

        Good info, thanks. Spending $600 upfront for a phone sucks, but if I could break it into $100 payments, I’m very OK with that.
