Avoid!

Gammaray has owned it for less than 3 months before publishing this review

You should avoid this smart"phone". I use "phone" because it hardly works as one. The phone randomly boot loops which can last for hours. Ejecting the sim will stabilize it but then no phone service. Asus' solution is to run it in safe mode which means goodbye apps. Also, the signal quality is very poor. I can't make or receive calls in my home unless I'm 1 foot or less from a window! And when I do get a call to connect the audio crackles. I have a $30 Alcatel that does better using the exact same sim!

Android 8.0, 18:9 aspect ratio, Finger print scanner and face recognition all for $150. This should be a great phone but if it can't even perform it's basic function as a phone then it's worth $0.
