When you say it like that, it almost sounds bad.

Perhaps, Excellent deal, or something.

I just read my comment again, and I think you're right. No more using the word "ridiculous".

I am surprised the aging Samsung Galaxy Express is still hugely overpriced! The Moto G outperforms it all around. The G has better sound, takes better photos, newer version of android, Runs faster with quad core, better screen, and no bloatware!. Now I am using the Moto G LTE on Cricket & it is fantastic. I would consider snagging a 630 had they at least included a flash for the camera. That was a big fail on Nokia's part. As that should be standard.
