Widest RW phone

I’d like a bigger screen than my current Moto X Pure XT1575 with 5.7" 2560x1440. Not tall and skinny but wider. I also need a lot of storage or a MicroSD slot.

Is there a wider phone that’s fully compatible with RW?

I think the Nexus 6 (model XT1103) is the widest (16:9 aspect ratio 5.96" display) phone compatible with Republic Wireless (and it’s only ~1/4" wider). You can still buy the US version new on Amazon, but it’s not likely to get any upgrades or security updates any longer (it’s a 2014 model phone). It also doesn’t support an SD card or come in larger storage than 64GB.

Unfortunately you’re fighting the latest trend in phones. Most manufacturer’s have moved from 16:9 displays to 18:9 or 19:9 making for skinny and tall phones.

Here’s a list of the supported phones that are as wide or slightly wider than your current phone.

Moto X Pure: 6.06" x 3" (wide)
Moto Z Play: 6.16" x 3.01"
Moto Z2 Play: 6.15" x 3"
Moto Z3 Play: 6.16" x 3.01"
Moto E4+: 6.1" x 3.05"
Moto G4+: 6.1" x 3.05"
Nexus 6P: 6.27" x 3.06"
Google Pixel 2XL: 6.22 x 3.02"
