You're leaving out a lot of important information that I'm sure you know about. To reach $49.99 it requires a port-in as well as payment for the first month's plan. And then you still need the unlock code.

I've never understood why certain people on SD like to supply half-truths. What do you stand to gain from it? Honest question.
Good deal on the oneplus 2 as well at $240.

What's also interesting is the Blu Life One X2 on pre-order (Oct 7 release).
Pretty decent deal for $180
- 5.2" FHD screen
- Snapdragon 430 octocore cpu
- QuickCharge 3.0 support
- 4gb RAM
- 64gb Storage with microSD card slot
- Fingerprint reader
- 3000mAh battery (non-removable)
- metal build

Drawback
-The camera is most likely not that great with an aperture of f/2.4
-CPU is new, but still built on 28nm process and 1.4ghz clock speed is pretty slow. The CPU is about the same speed as the Snapdragon 615 but with a stronger GPU.

We have had our Idol 3 replaced for glass issue twice, until it choked beyond the warranty period.

Non-removable/replaceable battery, however it is sold at this price point (without battery) $299. What gives? Can you or can you not insert your own battery?
EDIT: Now I see, the phone comes with a battery that is non-removable and the battery deal for $19 more, is an external pack that can be used with any device. I was hoping to have removable battery. Not looking for this now.

The phone comes with its internal battery. The $318 'with battery pack' version comes with an Asus battery pack [amazon.com].

Its battery included-its must be. You are confusing the "battery pack" which use to extend the life of the internal battery.

Best deal is the Motorola G4 Plus 64gb 4gb Ram for only $250. The only phone guaranteed to get Nougat this year.

Yea the G4 plus is pretty good. Though I hate how it comes with a Snapdragon 617 though. That's a really weak processor for a phone in the $250-300 range. If only it came with a 625 or 652.
