If they can't get their phones out in the US and Europe they will never grow their business. I want a phone that is cheap and has the sd820.. Damn you

You know they're huge already, right? I'm in the US and would love it if they came here.

In my opinion this phone destroys pretty much everything. If I lived in the US I'd get it for sure.

Add 200 USD on top = the real price.

I sure hope they will launch it soon unlike they skipped the mi note pro.. I'm due for a upgrade and this would be a good phone to upgrade from my galaxy s4. Don't even have high hopes for the s7 as it will be priced out if this world when launched here.
