The plus is aluminum wrapping and not faux metal, but the design lacks refinement, very crude.

Personally it is too glossy for my taste but I don't tend to count check chickens before they hatch. There could be a pleasant surprise this device has in store.

It's not entirely stock Android, though I'm curious if there would be a theme available at launch that would make it so.

Little typo Alan.

"We will start with the specifications since that is what everyone wants to know off the bat, the screen is a clear, 5-inch, 1920x1080 HD display with 443ppi."

1920x1080 on a 5" screen = 441ppi, not 443ppi.

It probably is 443ppi. A lot of the time, manufacturers round screen sizes. For instance, the Note 2 is actually 5.55", rather than the 5.5" you constantly hear quoted. It's probably something more like 4.97" which would be a ppi of 443. There's no reason to not call that 5".

Hope they are able to bring it to the US market. We could use some more nice devices like that.
