So..... *checks out boot's lineup* the best thing in this product category is either the moto g or the one SV. Moto g if you're fine with 3G or really want kitkat, SV if you want an SD card, LTE, or MHL. Why would anyone buy this again?

Price and they don't give a rats ass about specs/features. As a tech geek myself, I get where you're coming from though and it hurts my soul, but there are others out there in this world that have different needs.

Moto G is the same price or cheaper.

Yeah and the people who buy them may look it this phone and want it cause it looks better to them than the others and does what they want it to do.

Price is all pretty similar though....

Exactly. Some people just want their phone to work and at the cheapest they could find it.

Then... Why would they buy this?

Largg says:

I considered it but for now I will stick with my ancient Evo 3D that is slow as a glacier on sprints 3G.

i have this phone and i use it because its got a ridiculous battery life (standby time approaching a month) and while it currently has 4.1.2 on it, there are apps for the newer features (i've gotten google now launcher to run) and supposedly lg is going to roll out kit kat on it this year (but i'm not holding my breath on that one)

It's Funny..
Geeks think the world should want what they want.. We don't give a SHITE what you want.
We ALL have different needs and opinions.. The Moto G is fine for some folks so those folks can go buy it.
The best value for under $150.00 is easily the Alcatel One Touch Fierce ( My Personal Choice ) I have 4.2.2 which 80% of all devices still run, 4G vs Moto's 3G, 4.5" Screen vs Moto's 4" , SD Card Slot with the choice in Settings to make it your Primary Storarge for $125.00.. Clearly the better choice IMO.. But there is nothing wrong with the F3 for those that want it.. so get over it Wanna-Be Geeks.

Lol, glad to see someone getting promoted to world spokesman after Fred Phelps died.

I must missed the conformation hearing

You really should see the crap I don't post. Sorry if honesty offends you

The Fierce is dirt cheap on MetroPCS ($29 after a single mail-in rebate, $49 w/o), but the damn thing has no camera autofocus. Welcome to 2008. Still, I'd agree... at that price point, it's a steal and a lot of bang for the buck.

Android 4.1?Ouch

I just bought 2 and switched to T-Mobile, $110 each with cases, etc, on eBay. I know they're different versions, but the T-Mobile version is dirt cheap, has LTE, and a 2400mAh battery. There are not a lot of $100 phones with LTE and great battery life.

I'm coming from a CM 4.4.2 Galaxy Nexus, and this thing is faster and more responsive throughout the entire OS. For the price, I'm more than happy using this for a few months until I find a longer term device.

Yeah I switched from Boost Mobile to T Mobile... im in a major area and it shows a signal, but I still get dropped calls or no calls... and the data... snails pace..
So far im enjoying my t mobile with 100 mins and 5Gs of fast data for 32.00... I don't talk much and unlimited text.... cheaper than Boost. ....

I even came over from Verizon, and I have no issues whatsoever with the service or performance of the phone. I know carrier coverage is always hit and miss, but in Florida it seems like T-Mobile has their network together.
