For it's price, not a chance IMO. I won't even pay full price for a Galaxy or the likes. Considered one of these with a trade in offer but ultimately decided against it. Firstly, things in my pockets bother me, and doubling (at best) the thickness of my phone didn't seem worth it. I can't see enough of a necessary upside to get this phone. Definitely interested in hearing what people like about it though.

Yup, wasn't going to bother, but the $625 offer for my Note10+$200 credit+$150 bonus discount made me try it.

Are you gonna add a tech review section to DDMS?
I'm not who you think I am.

Too heavy. Too bulky. Just plain strange, is it a phone? Is it a tablet?
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

Yes, strange but true story. A demo model arrived at my door. Literally. A mistaken delivery, the address is to a phone store nearby. It wont function as a phone but it connects to wifi just fine.

Try unlocking the bootloader and changing the firmware.

Pretty cool. Target ships demo models to phone stores? Hmmm.

Interesting, I wonder if itís possible to get it functional.
