    Many who visit our site knows these devices but some may be caught up.


    example 1: a galaxy nexus for 799.99


    Lets start with the first obvious. We all know the galaxy nexus will not have a sd card slot. Also look at the camera specs.

    Phone #2

    Ok the issue here is the Razr has a non-removable battery so how can it have an extended battery.


    The other issues you will run into is that we are on cdma and lte so why pay 800 plus for a phone that would not be able to work on our network. As the holidays are approaching and hot electronics are being released be very careful where you order online.

    Please sticky this. Never would have noticed these points. Guess it is best to avoid online purchases if one is not that knowledgeable.

    Yeah, but when people are looking, especially for the holidays, sometimes all they need to see is "in stock" and any site will do.
