    Interesting but not sure about the amount of cloud connectivity and battery life impact.

    I guess it's OK otherwise it'd so be just a concept right? But removing Apps etc without the user really knowing could potentially leave you in a bind.

    If storage is the issue why not just build the phone with a micro SD slot and save the battery and data plan?

    Completely agree i find the whole phone design ugly as well!!

    I think te Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and the S6 design looks way better and is a better phone/phablet overall!

    It looks like a kids plastic toy ....the fact they spent time designing that aesthetic would make me question their other design decisions, let alone think about backing it ....

    Those super sharp pointy edges look like they could hurt you LOL. And being squared edge isn't easy on the grip either.

    Yeah, I know my palm prefers a rounded back and sides instead of these angular slabs.

    Then there's the plastic... I thought we were leaving that behind these days? Even a skinny metal band makes a significant difference.

    Not convinced this will fly at all.
