    Soon Google will "accidentally" start mailing that crap to people for free. I'll mail it back. frack off with your retarded designs Google.

    How do those Google design meetings go?
    Google dbag 1: "People hate the notch and think it's the dumbest idea of the century, what should we do?"
    Google dbag 2: "Let's copy that... AND MAKE IT DEEPER!"
    Google dbag 1: "... BRILLIANT!"

    2000 dollars is far too much. Even Apple doesn't have the guts to charge that much for an iPhone. I can't foresee much success.

    Oh the old taxi trick... :p

    Just in case that wasn't a joke... ;)

    That price mentioned is for the black market where usually pre-release technology commands a higher or a lot higher price for obvious reasons.

    kinda smell like stealth campaign
    otherwise that taxi driver sure a geek, at least he know the upcoming pixel 3

    most people, probably wont aware and thought nothing special about the phone
    or would rather just think "oh google copycat iphoneX-things"

    Why does everyone have to copy each other? Notch and no front button?

    I miss when phones had SOME real variety. I never even liked touch screens, just forced to adapt, they are a terrible input method. I miss my old HTC with a slideout keyboard (though do not miss Windows Mobile).

    smartphn maker been trying to make full-frameless-display for some quite time
    while they still cant ditch front-camera + earpiece + all rest of sensor ... the result is the notch

    despite many people hate it and i myself dont see any benefit from it... when comparing the phone, one with notch sure giving full-display-looks ...
    though its just looks weird for some android phone that using notch but still having wide chin-area
    so yea we are going to see this trends for next few years

    I just laugh at my friends who have to have the latest and most fashionable phone, like they're some kind of status accessories. Lol
    I have had my xiaomi redmi 5 plus for a few months now. It has a metal body. I've seen my friends with the glass backs and a lot of them are cracked.
    It has a very sharp and bright 5.99 inch screen a fast cpu, and 4gb of ram.
    It runs like a dream and the camera takes really good photos The fingerprint scanner is flagship fast (feels instant)
    This phone cost me £179.
