    Hopefully I get a good response before I leave today to get my phone. I'm conflicted between the l9 and f3 besides the screen difference what is the difference. Couldn't find a real comparison online so maybe one of you guys who has experience with these phones can help me

    do you want a bigger screen or better battery life? That's pretty much what it boils down to, f3 bigger battery, l9 bigger screen, your choice

    LTE vs non lte with l9 being non lte ...if you are into unlockable bootloaders then go for the l9
  6. This has been discussed in a few threads here. The L9 does have the larger display, but as mentioned it doesn't have LTE and it also has an older/slower CPU.

    Are their custom roms for the l9 because I haven't seen one for the f3 yet. That would probably make or break my decision otherwise I will go with the f3 because I do like smaller phones and the longer battery life and lte of course

    From what I can tell the f3 doesn't have any yet l9 does but it seem half that were motion went to l9 a quarter went to the f3 and a few stayed motion.. The rest went elsewhere in terms of devs

    Right. well it seems like the f3 outweighs the l9 so thats the phone i will be getting. Thanks guys I also heard that you can't move apps to sd cards? whats that all about? How's the memory on both phones that's pretty important because I plan to have the typical social networks on my phone

    F3 is much snapier than L9. L9 is not bad but it you try f3 you'll feel it.

    F3 because its long battery life and its lte, l9 has out dated hardware and only 4g
