Include me in the 5000 or the people who are buying due to the price drop. This phone is great. I think the folks reviewing this device were biased. Apple ain't all that anymore. This device is better then any Apple phone. Buy it so you can try it, you will be surprised.

Important news for those 5000 ppl who own this phone...

Got the update. Scrolling seems the same at times with the choppiness, but sometimes it is gone/fixed.

Just because you're one of the founders of android, does not mean your first crack at a phone is going to be successful. They aimed way too high with this one. Should've did the One Plus approach where they gave flagship grade specs thag always undercut the mainstream competition.

For the same reason, the KRACK fix, the October update came late for BB a few days ago.
