  • If you can purchase for 299.00 don't think twice. It's a very good phone for the $$. The OLED display, those best in class cameras, even better than most flagships. The 670processer works admirably, no lags or stutters. Almost a year old, that doesn't matter? For 299.00 it's kinda a no brainer!
  • This is very tempting. I've been missing Android during the lockdown.
