Lisa Gade reviews the Samurai Kiwami unlocked GSM Android smartphone made by FREETEL Wireless, a Japanese company. This $389 phone works on GSM networks and it has 4G LTE that’s compatible with AT&T and T-Mobile in the US (LTE bands 2, 4, 7, and 17). It is not compatible with Sprint and Verizon. Despite the low price, the phone has a 6” QHD 2560 x 1440 IPS display, a high end MediaTek MT 6795 octa-core 2GHz processor with PowerVR G6200 graphics, 2 gigs of RAM and 32 gigs of internal storage. The phone runs a clean Android 5.1 build and it has NFC, a fingerprint scanner, WiFi 802.11ac, Bluetooth, GPS and a 3400 mAh battery. It has an 8MP front camera and a rear 21MP camera with Sony Exmor RS IMX230 sensor. It’s available on Freetel’s website and Amazon.

Samurai Kiwami vs Oneplus 3 smackdown.

I bought one of these a week ago. It is a very nice phone, very solidly built, no lags at all, fast, great 6" screen, great camera. It is something like a Sony high end phone with a bigger screen and metal instead of plastic fittings. The only drawback is that the thing is so overpowered it eats battery time if you're using it. I was able to root it with Kingroot but it's so new there are no custom roms or recoveries out yet.

Thanks for reviewing this phone. As we encounter more Freetel phones coming to the US, are there any reports that Freetel will bring these phones to Verizon and even Sprint? It seems Sony is pulling a Shoganai/"It can't be helped" mindset in terms of bringing well made phones to those markets. They will be open to a much bigger market if they can do that, not to mention adding competition vs the samely Samsungs and iPhones taking so much of the market.
