RyGuy, 17 Jan 2017Makes sense this would be $199 in September. "The price isn’t likely to remain the same after a successful funding period."

Crowd-sourced, huh?

The crowd wanted cookie-cutter specs already available on a dozen other budget smartphones?

What's going on with ZTE and Boost Mobile? I would love another cell from the brand. My only concern is the external storage .

Who the hell wants the back their phone to stick to surfaces? Yes, you want there to be some traction but to be adhesive? It'll be covered with pocket lint in seconds... I know they're putting that function in a phone case but still, they wasted R&D time on an obvious troll suggestion.
Eye tracking to scroll is potentially useful but again, I think it's more a gimmick than anything else.

Didn't Samsung have some similar gimmick called "Smart Scroll" that they introduced in the Galaxy S4, where the user could scroll using eye-tracking?

ZTE doesn't sell enough overpriced, overrated low end phones which are advertised as being faster than the newest iPhone, now they came down to crowdfunding.
