" ...  It works just as good as any other smart phone that Ive used.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Mostly because I work from home at my computer all day long, and I've just paid for the "bundled" phone+internet that entire time. ... So as a complete noob when it comes to modern cell phones, I'd have to say I'm extremely please with this phone. ... Good luck to you on your quest for a new phone!  ...  "

" ...  Doing this first prevents having any complications that some reported after a Pie upgrade on a phone with third-party apps installed. ... I'm not all that big on using the Google Play apps for Syncing data to Google's cloud storage. ... I prefer to avoid providing data about my life for Google to resell in the form of demographic information. ... That said, I love how the later versions of Android OS let me fine tune the apps to allow more privacy, and more battery life as well. ... I haven't used the Alexa app, and am unlikely to do so, but it is there should I change my mind.  ...  "

I also bought an extra charging block, and you want to make sure you buy one that supports Quick Charge 2 or 3 if you want to take advantage of the TurboPower feature (I got the Anker Quick Charge 3.0 unit).  ...  "
