Beautiful. I'd happily have one of these.
Can I install iOS on it?
The design reminds me of an iPhone 6 crossed with an iPhone 5.
Except the hideous striped band wrapped around it.
Come now guys. Only so many ways you can make a touchscreen phone.
My first thought also was "iPhone 5" ... the grill at the bottom and the band with the hard edges around the phone?
Sure, it's getting more difficult to come up with an original design, but it's not impossible. Can't remember a Sony or LG phone which resembled an iPhone , for example.
I think I missed why this exists.
My thoughts exactly, still genuinely trying to figure out why this is relevant.
Nice! (Especially the expandable memory with microSD.) If I didn't already have a OnePlus 2, I'd grab this.
Oh hell, I still may grab this.
Nice phone for the price. Android really has come a long way. If I wasn't so invested in Apple services (notes, reminders, calendar, pages, numbers, etc.) I'd consider switching.
I tried Android (Nexus 5) out for a year before going back to an iPhone. While the hardware to price ratio made it a screaming deal and the platform was nice and open, no matter what I did, I always felt like it wasn't quite... there. Felt like it did everything an iPhone could, but I had to spend at least twice as long getting there; I spent a lot of time customizing and tweaking, whereas my iPhone more or less just worked right out of the box. Obviously your mileage may vary, but that's my two cents.
Did you make it to the Lollipop update? Really brought a lot of the 'it just works' imo. I'm on Marshmallow and haven't changed a single setting other than setting up my home screen(s).
Then again, I've been using Android since 2010 so maybe I just already know the UI patterns ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
I wholely believe your experience, but I have the exact same experience when I (an Android user) try to do something as simple as grab a phone number from my wife's iPhone.
