Okay, now this phone has me very interested indeed. Even though it's a 5.5" screen which is too small for me, but for the money I think this phone would be hard to beat.

Here's a great video from Flossy. Now talk amongst yourselves.

Yeah, I'm seriously contemplating getting one. I love idea of the speaker set up and that quad HD screen looks wondrous. Also, it doesn't hurt that they offer so much for the pre-order price of $350.

Design is pretty sweet.

Just curious, what sort of phones do you use if 5.5 is too small?

One negative is the Snapdragon 652 is built on 28nm. I'd wait for reviews with regards to potential overheating, throttling and battery life.

That's sad when people say stuff like this is a negative. Like you can tell the difference when you use the phone. Good grief.

A Nexus 6.

Sad is when you don't know your history such as the issues with Snapdragon 810 on 20nm. Both 810 and 652 are octa-core.

That doesn't necessarily mean anything, I *think* that Snapdragon 800-805 were all 28nm yet still gave good performance and battery life. Granted they're not eight cores (I think), but the way the "eight" cores/BigLittle work that shouldn't matter. The 808/810 were just poorly designed flukes and their problems don't exist in the 820 and shouldn't in anything else unless it's something based off of them.

I'm happy with the S7 but I love the value of these devices.

I was a moto g user a while back.

Can't beat value.
