Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 [notebookcheck.net], Cortex A7, no 64 bits support, 50% slower than Snapdragon 410 in Mote E LTE.

But the Moto E doesn't have flash. (Altho the Moto E's screen is MUCH better!)
And the Tribute 2's camera isn't auto focus.

How? I thought R+ won't take any phones without at least 1 year of activation.

Whats Perk?

i have this phone on R+.
best of the cheap phones (tribute 2, Moto E, Huwei Union).
camera has auto focus AND flash.

but I prefer the keyboard of the Tribute 2 better.
all the letters have alternate characters, and not just the top row of letters for the numbers.

Is there a way to change to a better android keyboard?
how/what?

better then Tribute II? I'm in for 4 with free shipping. I saw this deal last night but stalled. If it's better then the Union then I'm down for some flipping on CL, beats working for a living.

Need a 'phone' to use as mp3 and fm radio player for workouts/running (for Bluetooth and possibly wifi streaming)

Is it possible to use this without activating?
