Amazing price.
Watching Youtube clips of this phone the sound is amazing. You can't beat that price.

I was all set to buy this phone a week or so ago but saw that Alcatel is releasing a 6' hero 2+. It will come w/ Cyanogen. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that the Hero 2+ will have this steep of a special price.

No Verizon compatibility Frown

Not a bad price for an unlocked phone but a few features are already past-generation:

- Snapdragon 615 (MSM8939)
- 2GB LPDDR3 RAM (@800MHz single-channel 32-bit)
- Adreno 405 GPU
- 1920 x 1080p screen
- A-GPS only (no GLONASS)
- 13MP camera (no optical stabilization)
- Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n (no AC)

Some nice features are the large battery and JBL dual-speakers.

In all the news ramping up to the release, it was suppose to have a $279 price tag. The preorder price (i thought on the 21st) was going to be $249.

Edit: Noticed you can check out with Amazon and get prime shipping.

I do believe that will be the regular price. I don't know if its realistic or not, but I think $250 is pretty realistic.

This is very tempting. *Jeopardy music*

EDIT: FYI, this has the same camera sensor as the OnePlus One.
