    Really? Why can’t people make good expensive phones?

    There isn’t one feature on the $2,500 model that even remotely justify that price. The Snapdragon 653 is mid performance level chip. All the graphics and the cases colored gold but only real gold with justify that price.

  • Wouldn’t pay more than $350

  • Priced for extinction.

    Is there a typo in the prices? Going from 128gb to 256 gb cost the price of 2 iPhone 7? Plus it’s rather ugly, small screen, last decade USB spec.
    I can’t see anything good about this phone. Maybe the overkill battery.
    By the way, I have android 6 on my 4-year galaxy note 2. You could have chosen android 7. We’re in 2017.
