  1. I love the design of this smartphone, the matte black version, and especially the full screen aspect 🤩.

    On the other hand, unless I haven't seen it (and yet I watched the video twice for that) there is no mention of the price and the number of updates planned by the manufacturer.

    And also, why compare it to the iQoo 11, when all the tests and even yours have proven that currently the best 8 Gen 2 is the Vivo X90 Pro+ 🤔

    Ps: even at $800, this smartphone has no interest compared to a Vivo X90 Pro+ at $900 – $1000, this smartphone could have some interest only if it is sold around $650 internationally for the 256G version .

  2. i wish the big brands would stop making every flagship the same old boring curved screen glossy phone and follow designs like this. i would kill to have a phone that looks like this but with samsung/pixel software/features. I thought the new iphone would spark a wave of flat edges/screen, but it looks like the s23 ultra is gonna look exactly the same as last year, and the pixel 7 pro barely looks different. the western phone market is such a bore right now.

  3. If this arrives to our shores for around $700… i'd take the plunge. Been looking for an android phone for months now that's worth upgrading to that significantly costs less as well.. looks like this is it

  4. There's one important question not covered here: How many years of update for this model?
    That's a question which should come first before buying any device these days.
