            I'm using the alcatel 4s now,, cause it's what I could afford. I'm checking out this phone because of the speakers.
            I'm okay with the 4s. Same type of phone as this Asus, but way cheaper.
            I have an amoled screen, front facing stereo speakers that sound great. Truly the only thing is the updates for nougat or anything. Doesn't seem to get any. Anyway, I do like this phone, but will wait til it drops in price.

              Same here. Since it doesn't have expandable storage i'm thinking on buying the 1tb version but I don't feel like paying a grand for a phone that's going to get outdated in like a year or two.

                      For 1/2 the money, I just ordered the ZTE Nubia Red Magic 3 S with the Magic Adapter, the Protective Case, 1 extra Power 27W brick and Tronsmart Edge 10000mAh Power Bank. Expecting next week... And more games are expected to work at 90 Hz natively with Nubia soon...

                            Youve heard of sneakers that light up, now prepare for backpacks that light up. Or charges your phone. Comes with dex stand, sold

                                Looks legit. Like a portable gaming system. Or a DS view on a phone.

                                  What say you about the lack of VoLTE on the ROG Phone II? How can ASUS sell a "flagship" phone that becomes unusable in less than two years?

                                                  I'm interested to buy this phone with all accessories.
                                                  But where can you buy this case if you're from Europe.... :(
