Trump Fan 1980, 03 Mar 2018 It'd be nice if this came with Oreo preinstalled.Oreo should have been mandatory. Google should draw up a requirement for OEM's to use new current software whenever a new version has been released. Exactly the reason why I don't understand why anyone looks back. Why does everything have to be of a previous generation or after the fact.

Still we better implement better solutions for other material consuming... maybe to be less of a consuming society.

At least the back panel will be much cheaper than the back panel of apple X if you need a repair :-)
But i would like to see our Zac from Jerry rigs everything how he cope with this phone and how this surpases the legendary bend test.

It'd be nice if this came with Oreo preinstalled.
