Moto Maker getting full setup at Best Buys

A couple weeks ago we let you know that Best Buy was prepping to bring the Moto Maker experience to its retail stores, and it looks like the displays are quietly being set up at various Best Buy stores around the country. We have gotten a couple of tips on the setups, and now we even have some pictures and info on what exactly will be offered...

It would be obviously implausible, but the Moto Maker should be a vending machine. Go to your local tech store, customize your phone from a touch interface, and out pops your phone!

Moto Maker now has off contract price at $529 for 32GB AT&T model which is $100 cheaper than before. I assume AT&T would unlock this phone if full price is paid but am not sure.

That's interesting... Its still expensive for a Moto because you can get an LG G2 (a better phone I think) for $574 with no contract.

Specs wise the LG G2 maybe better, but quality wise I wouldn't say that. The only LG phone I've heard people feel good about a year after purchase is the Nexus 4. The build quality and fast updates that come with a Nexus device are what set it apart from other LG builds. Most reviewers are even putting the build quality of the G2 behind the GS4. If LG steps up there build quality and works better at getting updates to their phones, then I'd consider one.

That's a big problem in the Android community. People confuse better specs with better phone. G2 is certainly a heck of a phone. I like it, great display, very good camera, great battery life, but it has LG Software which is meh at best.
Those of us who like minimalist android approach would much rather have the Moto X than the G2.

I guess I'll just go to the store and play with both phones and decide from there.
I like Moto because of the useful features and no added crap and I like the LG G2 with a big screen and speed.

Great, now all we need is more carrier support and hopefully the Moto X will have decent sales. I still have no idea why they went with an exclusive deal, being able to customize the Moto X is probably it's biggest selling point. This exclusivity has probably cost Motorola a lot of sales.

This is a bit behind, we've had this up for at least a few weeks
