    Even ignoring the gaming aspect, theres a lot to like about those specs, only thing missing for me is a microsd card. Which are so useful for so many reasons, and so easy to put in a phone, I find it really sad its no longer a feature you can count on.

    6000mAh battery? Yes, please. I don't even just tired of the crap battery sizes that we get. I'd gladly trade a thicker phone for more battery.

    A perfect phone until you see the design. Drop the "gamer" style and it will sell a boatload. But only 13 year olds want a phone that looks like this.

    I'd love the battery size. The design of the phone is just designed for stuff I don't do. It also compromises on areas I do use. I think it's great someone is doing this but it really is a niche product.

    Why do they have to make it look like that though? It's embarrassing.

    The phone does look impressive, but I've never seen a mobile game worthy of anything that advanced.
    The amount of accessories are insane and takes on the Switch, PSP and the 3DS.
    I can imagine all the accessories taking this phone to £1.5k+
    If it really is close to $899 then guesstimating $999 thats still quite a good price.
    But it seems they short supply, so all the phones will be that price at all times, there won't be any discounts to be had like other brands
