    Don't know why I didn't buy one when it first came out , but the more I dig the more it seem clear the motion is a great phone . Need some honest reviews for u all on this hand set , and if anyone knows were to get one cheaper than 550-600 $.

    Depends where you are located . You could grab one on kijiji in Canada for around 400 to 450$

    The device is what it is. Super awesome battery, camera is ok...not great ...but ok.

    The OS runs super snappy... I expect it will run smoother on O. Over all its built like a tank , but if you don't like mushy fingerprint covered screens then don't buy it. I clean my screen at least once a day

    I bought it in November. Signal is better than the keyone , speaker is alright ask long as you don't cover the one Grill which I accidentally do sometimes .

    I bought one on eBay from a US seller and it's waiting for me at my hotel in San Fran right now. I'll be there next week on business.

    Like you, I wondered what took me so long to get one and am excited to unbox it and make it my daily driver... until the KEY2 arrives!

    I'd be happy to compare new Motion owner notes with you once you get yours

    Btw, I'm in Toronto. Ordered it online because wanted the dual Sim variant.

    I paid $445 USD with free shipping which worked out to be about $575 CAD.

    Ever since I got the dual Sim KEYone black edition, I've been hooked on dual sim phones (currently using the dual Sim bronze KEYone). I used to carry a work phone and a personal phone... now I only carry one.

    PDA Plaza out of Montreal sells the dual Sim Motion as well for $589 CAD but after HST and shipping, I'd be paying over $100 more than going with the Yankee seller.

    Ya that's about what I see them going for about 575-600 ish
    And the dual Sim is really not a big deal for me as I only ever have one phone . I'm really torn . The price is still high eh , hmm

    If you don’t need dual sim then I would agree that 600 is high for a Motion. If you don’t mind being a little patient, I would regularly check kijiji (is it big in Van?) and as soon as someone puts one up for 400-450, I’d jump on it.

    Check out the website as it tells it all. 45 for the plan and 15 a month for two years for the phone. It's a no brainer for me.

    Larger battery, waterproof...

    My view is BlackBerry is about the PKB... if you don't need that, there are much better hardware sets out there for less. If updates or security are a concern, stick to a "current" Samsung or Google phone.

    Kinda looking like the Motion is already an EOL product.... not sure how much future support it's going to get if you buy it through a carrier.

    Samsung isn't great with security updates. I'd stick with Google.

    My two year old S7 has missed maybe two out of the last eleven months... and it's was updated to OREO.... If your having issues, it has more to do with your carrier than Samsung. Like with BlackBerry you might be better off buying an unlocked phone...
