We're not mad, we're just disappointed. Actually, with a 120Hz HDR10 screen, Snapdragon 845 and Android 9.0 Pie, this isn't all bad.

Especially the gesture navigation on FP reader. looks cool.
Back is ugly tho.

The phone actually looks kind of cool and the specs are acceptable, but the battery size is a total deal breaker. Too bad!

Kill it before it breeds

Launch the phone with Quad-Notch, Hexa-Notch , notches all the sides... By doing this you can beat Samsung and Apple... Good luck

Uglier than the pixel 3xl

Got the notch, got the crotch.

But seriously, at least make the notch symmetry lol.
