Thinking of “skipping the sevens”? Unfortunately, as far as Samsung’s fickle Galaxy Note 7 is concerned, that’s become a necessity rather than a personal option. So, now, if you’re in the market for a high-end smartphone, it’s the Galaxy S7, S7 Edge, iPhone 7, 7 Plus, HTC 10, LG V20 (coming soon), Google Pixel or Pixel XL (likewise), Moto Z or Z Force.

Plenty of solid possibilities, but just one (well, two) modular. Unless you also consider the LG G5, which however feels inferior to the Moto Z family in a number of ways. And if you choose to do your shopping through Best Buy, the Z Droid and Z Force Droid aren’t even that much pricier anymore.

Well, they are if you purchase them outright, at $700 and $800 respectively, with contracts and device payment plans not only substantially lowering your upfront outlay, also scoring you precious freebies. Namely, $250 e-gift cards for every Z Droid acquisition, and $150 store credit as far as the Moto Z Force Droid goes.

The former will require you cough up $26 a month for two years, or $202 with 24-month pacts, while the latter costs $30.17 every 30 days, or $299.99 on-contract. Needless to point out both phones are Verizon-locked, the GSM-compatible Moto Z meanwhile setting you back $700 on Amazon, no strings attached.
