Battery at 2600mAh seems a little small.

Sony sure makes some money with their sensors. I hope they won't suffer from these production issues in the future so they could finally get into business.

Two stage shutter button is a great feature... Love it on my Lumia 925. The more control the user has, the better he can control the resulting picture he or she gets.

It depends. The two stage shutter button on my Lumia 710 was really hard to use

The Lumia phones are severely troubled by lag when taking pictures. Nokia's shutter buttons really end up being three stages: lag-shot-lag.

I mean this as no disrespect for Nokia or its employees. They did the best they could with Windows Phone, but it is not possible to turn a pig's ear into a silk purse.

This sensor could have been on the HTC One M8. Too bad HTC does not have a Chief Pixel Officer who could steer the company to make good pixel decisions.

I already love the design of vivo xplay 3s, if it follows the same design then may be I will think considering it over oneplus1

I'll buy it over OPO just because it has "Maxim MAX97220 headphone amplifier" :)

Call quality and audio quality of phone are two very important features for me...I had to buy external amplifier after I bought N5...no regrets though...N5 is great device for its price.

The Xshot comes with the powerful Maxim MAX97220 headphone amplifier and a refined Cirrus CS4398 DAC. Not to mention a great camera with a shutter button. This is a winner.

To be fair, OnePlus does have Cyanogen which is worth something. Unfortunately OnePlus is playing hunger games with phone sales and having to apologize again and again for their marketing gimmicks gone wrong. Not really something I want to deal with.

Vivo phones are known for their great audio.

It is plain to see that customer driven innovation is centered in China. Great cameras, shutter buttons, great audio, great screens. All the important stuff.

It'd be great if Vivo could make a deal with Cyanogen and get their phones to the US market with a stable updateable ROM. Something similar to what OnePlus is doing, but done better.

What is the point in having people who definitely don't look Chinese in those product pics if the phone is meant to be released only in china!?
