Sold my iPhone 7 to buy a Nintendo Switch(cus iPhones suck anyways), and did not have much left for a phone(using a spare win 10 phone, but that OS is DONE). On Amazon this is $165 right now. Ordered it with a case, tempered glass, and same day delivery for $185. Has Lineage OS support too. Yea I am excited. Should hold me over for the budget phones to come that will have the SD-835.

Claire MacDougall says:

I bought one of these through the crowdfunding campaign. It's decent but so flawed in so many ways once you start to use it. Now it just drives me crazy and I can't wait to get something else…a damned flip phone would be better than this garbage.

Charles Hines says:

I like rectangular phones. I like them flat too on both sides. That way they don't wobble on a table. I have always liked Sony's Xperia Z series. They have the highest resolution cameras I have ever seen in an Android device. Sony has also been using their triluminous displays for years and with 5 inch 1080p displays at least as far back as the Xperia Z which is a little bit similar to this phone. I also like Sony for not having used AMOLED displays because they are known to have burn in issues. In my opinion, a high end or flagship phone should not suffer from that no matter how good the black and white contrast is. I see that as a major defect deliberately built-in. Samsung does make nice devices but I would rather get one without an AMOLED display. The iPhones had IPS displays too and that didn't stop them from becoming popular even though todays phones have displays much better than that of the older iPhones. Besides that, Sony made the camera in the iPhone 4S. It is easy to see why they were a very widely used phone for their cameras (with help from Sony).

Nextbit Robin is available for $160 now…probably the best phone for the price out right now…and fully Lineage supported.

Joshua Latham says:

I wish there were more Block-ey phones like this.. they look futuristic af

Darcy Ferrier says:

It's basically a shittier version of an Xperia Z3

Azeze Shobowale says:

ugggh, i was literally brainstorming this idea with my friends, about having a phone that mainly uses the cloud for storage, oh well
