Office 365 Business Essentials vs. Exchange Online Plan 1

Can someone contrast the differences between Business Essentials ($5 / month) vs. Exchange online plan 1 ($4 / month).  Really concerned with the exchange / mailbox features.  Do you have the same size mailbox (50GB?) shared mailboxes? deleted items capability, spam filtering, etc?

There's a reseller that's offering Exchange online plan 1 for $3.75 vs. 4.50.  But can't seem to find a page that compares the differences / they don't appear on the same page ever?!

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

The only difference I can see is that the Business Essentials plan gives you the online versions of office (which are almost useless) and OneDrive (online storage) which is also next to useless in my experience - dropbox and copy are much better products.

The business essentials plan includes Exchange, Lync, SharePoint, OneDrive, plus all the free services we get with O365 subscriptions. EO plan 1 on the other hand only offers mail. So it really depends on what you are interested in getting. If you want to compare the Exchange features between the two, you can refer to the service description documents (hint, they're pretty much the same):
