Dang, that actually looks really nice. Really thin too. I like the attention to customization too.

Please answer me, does it have a removable battery, microSD card slot, and an FM radio? If there's none, I'll pass.

It is easier to replace can buy it anywhere for $30. pop it in right away and you're good to go..fones like iphone or htc one means more business for the carriers have to pay like $100 to replace and you still have to deal with them...i don't know about you but i hate that and so a lot of people.

Most phones come with a warranty and manufacturers will cover you for a faulty battery regardless, and a lot of people on carriers pay for insurance. I cracked the display on my GS2, yeah I could have fixed it myself, but my insurance covered me and I got a new unit sent to me with overnight shipping at no cost, other than the monthly fee for insurance of course.

@ Daniel If true, I doubt a phone this thin going to have removable battery.

From the looks of it no removable battery but SD for sure... Looks more HTC one but definitely nice look

It does look pretty swank. The x factor :P will be screen size for me. If it's less than 4.7", I'll wait for the Droid Ultra.

With the right specs and the option to engrave it I might want it

I'd take a Motorola-built One clone with nearly stock Android for $100 subsidized!

That's what I thought it was at first glance lol but if you look close its different from the ONE in some ways

The phone is much thinner than i expected. I sure hope that thegydont sacrifice battery. My note 2 is the only phone that can keep up with me. Who cares about thinness when u tote a charger around with you. Who cares about features when tbe device dies?

That's cause Schmidt is using the smaller battery version, there will be a MAXX too.

I'm really digging the design. Looks like the HTC One, but the fact that the phone appears really think makes it a whole lot better. White model looks way better than the black one.
