I know the e6 is a fairly new phone, but I would gladly hold out for it if it were in the process of being put on the BYOP list. I currently own a Moto g1 that I bought from Republic in 2013, but the screen recently cracked and I don’t know how much longer it’s going to hold up. This thing is tough and small, two key features that are hard to find these days.
I love the idea of getting a g6 or g7, but honestly, they’re a little on the large side, and the all glass body is too risky for me to commit to. I think republic would benefit from offering a few highly durable, smaller sized handsets with stock Android on board. The e6 looks like a great candidate.
