The video just about says it all but to reiterate and follow up i’ll say that after sending this phone back I already miss it! This phone really showed me that there is still room for improvement, innovation, and genuine enjoyment when it comes to phones. I was skeptical about ever really seeing deeper advancements in the operating systems of phones, of course phones will get faster, lighter, bigger, have better battery life and better resolution but I want a software advancement not just hardware! I knew they would always grow and slowly adapt to what people need but I never expected any huge jumps like when we went from flip phones to smart phones. However, this gets close, Flyme 3.0 is a great flavor of the Android operating system! It is clean, simple, fast, and intuitive, all of the new things that you’d thing you might have to learn and get used to come naturally and really have shown me that there is still hope. Though it doesn’t have 4G LTE I am on WiFi most of the time anyway so it’s not the biggest turn off though I know for a lot of people it is! It has a bit to go hardware wise specifically the antennas but with just a few small adaptations this phone could potentially dominate the US market.
