Nice processor, but crappy screen. 720p @ 5.5 inches? I know they got to cut back for costs, but why have so much processing power when you arent pushing any pixels? Other than that though, it looks to be good specs and excellent price.

Removable Battery, (W)CDMA/GSM, LTE Capable and does appear to have a MicroSD slot. If this phone does make it across the pond at $150 USD, kinda want.

Edit: I do feel that a 5.5" Screen is a "tad" too large though.

Looks like a really good phone. 5.5 is perfect. I cant stand smaller phones once you use 5.5. Dont judge with just trying a phone at the store and thinking its too big.

Agreed. Once you go phablet you never go back.

You would get used to the 720p screen. It's better then most phones out there. Besides, it looks like they are using a lower res one to save on battery power.

Seeing as my 7 inch tablet is 720p, the screen resolution is no biggie. Just that size though. Still would buy.

5.5 is normally just a tad on the big size for many people, but still usable. Those phones though have pretty small bezels which keeps the physical size down so you can still hold it. This phone l;ooks like it has somewhat large bezels, so that 5.5" screen is going to be a pretty big phone.

Yep, Id love to have that too. Seems like average performance would be better and battery life would probably be slightly better too.

720p is fine for a six inch screen.

I mean come on, you have a 50 inch 1080p TV and you complain about the resolution of a 6 inch screen.

I would rather have double the performance and battery life on a 720p six inch screen, than have a 4k phone that lags, stutters, and dies quickly because you have to feed all those pixels.

Didn't realize I was on AverageConsumer.com forums not Overclock.net for a second.

But in all seriousness, no one mention 4k. You comparison of 720p to 4k (ignoring the wanted 1080p) would be me saying, "I would rather have 1080p six inch screen, than have a 320p that is so small and pixelated".

4.5 inch screen @ 720p? No problem, more than happy with it.
5.5 inch screen @ 720p? I'd rather have 1080p. Just like ona 24" monitor I like 1080p and wouldn't like 1080p on a 27".

I'm using a Note II so 5.5" at 720p is perfectly fine for me. If this thing had the right connectivity for T-Mobile I'd be interested.
