Orbit 2 Vs the Ultra (5):

The display is smaller and lower quality.
The processor is slightly faster.
Camera quality is severely outdated.
It weighs more than twice as much. Why is it so much heavier???
The battery doesn't last as long (If I understand correctly.)
RAM and ROM are the same in both?
The only serious benefit seems to be Android 8.1.

In my experience, the batteries in these phones will likely die in less than 2 years. As well, 7-Eleven has a similar offer on phones every Christmas. Therefore, unless someone has a very good reason to need a version of Android beyond 6.0, I'm not sure that it makes sense for most people to buy the Orbit 2.

On the Speakout website they say: "while supplies last." I'm guessing that the Ultra (5) (released in 2017) is more at risk of running out, than the Orbit 2 is.

The Orbit 2 is probably the replacement for the FIGO III which was also a 4" screen with Marshmallow.

It will be interesting to see what the replacement for the Ultra 5 will be.

Does the Figo Orbit 2 have Bluetooth 4 or higher? I could not find any specs online.

The Ultra (5) is no longer shown on their website leaving the Orbit2 as the only FiGO phone.
