    The spec is such I'd call it a Borderless Shame :) Design versus features.

  3. LoL. Agreed.

    This is definitely a crap idea, dip a toe into a pool of piranha that are ready to chew you up, or go in guns blazing and take some down with you? Why would enter a market, with a weak hand. The display as borderless as it claims to be, will only help to show the laggy performance better.

    I didn't know what to make of this phone when I read a snippet about it recently, in fact I never gave it any thought at all but now I've just seen a video preview of it and from the bit I saw it impressed me. It's not high end at all but I'm not interested in the usual overpriced high end phones, mid range is right up my alley, they offer far better bang for the buck.
