    The v30 looks nice but a little too expensive for my taste. There's an 800 camera I want to buy instead

    If it was 399 may be more of a possiblity but 800+ for a phone is hard to justify for me at least

    I am sure you can get the v30 for 399 to 499 in close to an year, phones Are not cheap yes that's an lot of money but it comes down to if you want and can afford it then go for it, I have the v10 and v20 and the S7, along with the ZTE zmax which is budget phone and I use it an lot

    The Samsung with 600 is rumored to be a little cheaper. Definitely no rush for me though since band 4 works well for me

    Those LG phones are tempting though

    The battery is not so bad. I'm a fairly heavy user and the battery gets me through the day without having to connect to a charger.

    I'll just mention in passing that if you are worried about battery life, setting your backgrounds and lock screens to be a solid pure black will turn off all the pixels and allow the P-OLED on the V30 to consume far, far less energy.

    I know it sounds unlikely, but it really does work to extend battery life significantly.

    I rank batteries that only last a day to be extremely poor, and those that last a few days to be "good". I am measuring against how batteries used to last a week on phones. It's gotten worse only due to intentional bad design (and I am blaming you, Apple, for all these ideas, bad and good, that others copy!), and nothing else. I'm not going go lower my expectations to accept pathetic weak batteries as any sort of "good" simply because the industry has chosen to cripple batteries over the past 12 years or so in order to make phones super-thin.

    Imagine that V30 with the equivalent of 3 extra batteries, while the tradeoff is being heavier and 4 or 5 mm thicker. You'd have 3 to 5 day battery life.... and I'd give those a letter grade of C or B-. As opposed to the failing grades the others all now get (rare exceptions being that new Moto E4, which I would give a D- on battery life because it lasts a little longer than a day).

    And yes, that is a GREAT tip. The way it is going, I'm getting a pair of V30s on Black Friday...unless I can get the same deal on two Samsung Galaxy S8 Actives.

    Not to pry, but how do you use 4 phones simultaneously...

    Is it a routine thing? Or are you counting phones that your family members also have.

    A #DroidLife question...

    Curious what you ended up doing.

    Nothing... The "add a line" requirement was a very strong disincentive to partake of any of these deals.

    The only tricky thing I have seen T-Mobile do so far is the automatic inclusion of a SIM kit, together with a mandatory call to customer service to get an otherwise perfectly good device up and running.

    25.00 net cost.

    The call will go your way when you tell them you are just moving your old SIM, but you will still have a brand new SIM that cost you just a little too much.

    :-)

    Having to add a line for these deals kept me away from them also

    Try the Moto E4 Plus. It's awesome, probably ranking a C or even a B on your scale.
