I got an invite on 6th. And I basically convinced my parents that this is the best performance/price ratio phone available in the market right now. Which it really is - for $350 it gives me

Snapdragon 801 2.5Ghz Quad-Core Processor (seen in Moto X 2nd Gen, Galaxy S5, Xperia Z3, HTC One M8)
3 GB RAM (more than HTC One M8)
64GB Internal Memory (no expandable slot tho)
1080p 5.5 Inch IPS Screen with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 (401 pixels per inch)
Android Kitkat 4.4.4 (with an upgrade based on Lollipop coming up in a few days)

Its closest competitor is Nexus 5 which still costs quite a bit more but lacks Stereo speakers and its 16 GB variant is all that I get at this price :p

Anyway, moar pics:

Also this is the PSP FF game which I run at a higher res than normal (comparison shot) and it gives decent performance.

I like the design on that.

What about the Nexus 6, though? Since you mentioned the 5.

I mentioned Nexus 5 because it is the closest to this device in terms of its price, actually. Seeing that 6 costs exactly double of this device ($700 vs $350), I don't think I'd consider it a competition in terms of "competitive pricing".

But since you asked, here is a side by side comparison of it with Nexus 6 using Antutu:
huge images warning btw

Pretty neat-lookin' phone ☺ I just got an iPhone 5c 8GB. Really wanted 16GB, but they don't make those anymore... I like its pretty blueness, though.

Dang, that's a really good deal. The resolution comparison at the bottom is candy to my eyes. My LG G2 has been serving me well, but the small battery life is slightly problematic.

And your hands are beautiful, dero.

I really like iPhones actually. Their designs and the way they effectively utilize their hardware is something I adore. But the lack of freedom is a massive pain in the ass.

I looked at G2 and 3 before buying this phone. They're pretty cool too. :) But battery life is an area where this one shines a LOT. it lasts a whole day with moderate usage with still like 30% juice left. Which is love. Seriously.

And compliments on my hands were the last thing I expected to see but thank you so much haha

I would only want one if it had front facing stereo speakers and a micro sd card slot.
