comment

comment
" ...  Their claim of 7 hours of battery life after 15 minutes of charging is a little far fetched but it is still very good and I really don't find myself needing to charge more than once per day.  ...  "
comment
" ...  I thought about going with that but decided that I don't use wireless charging, liked the idea of a plastic phone over a glass back since I like to rock my phone no case, liked the headphone jack, and don't really care about the wide angle selfie cam. ... Yes, it charges fast and I pretty much have access to chargers everywhere I go (home, work, car, etc) but my P20 could go two full days on a charge.  ...  "
comment
" ...  If your looking for a new phone that's fast, takes great pictures, is easy to carry with you, charges fast, lasts long, and is basically the most trusted sidekick you need with you 24/7 and a price that's hard to beat GET THIS PHONE!  ...  "
