I know this was last posted a month ago, but I bought 1 Grey in Phoenix this past Sunday, no other stock for that city. There is currently 1 Grey in stock for Atlanta, I haven't checked every city though.

I would love to get one at this price. With google pixel 3 camera side-loaded and some settings (e.g. grip rejection) changed it's a very good deal at $170. It's also unlocked already, which makes it less of a headache than the Moto Z2 deal that I'm still waiting on an unlock code for. It's been about three weeks waiting on AT&T. My first unlock request was rejected after waiting two weeks. Hopefully attempt 2 goes through.

OMG, This junk still for sale , even the company abandoned it
Funny...since they have had Android updates on the day of release which the latest was 12/3/2018. The only other phone to do that is the Pixels.

Talking about actual vendor updates not 3rd party nightly builds.

I still prefer this over other flagships such as galaxy and note series, and even Motorola, just because of the form factor. I haven't had this year's LG flagships or last year's so can't comment on that

And official bug free updates are best in the industry. The camera is the weak point and that it why it's so cheap

Got the phone for $180 back in July.

Really solid phone that works on all carriers and gets all updates. Flagship specs except for the camera. The camera is fine for regular snaps with good lighting but it's flaws are shown in less than ideal conditions (motion and low light).

The other flaw is the lack of waterproofing. It is supposed to have a waterproof coating but it will act quirky if enough moisture is around. Disappointing for a "flagship".

Overall this is a worthy phone at this price, however I am not shying away from better options if the right deal comes up. Great transition phone for as long as you need.

Battery has been really good for me and I am constantly gaming and streaming. Never ran dry if I leave in the morning with a full charge.

For those lucky to have this deal available in your area, this is a killer phone for the price. You can't find another phone that is even remotely close to the specs of this phone for $168.
