Shame it's so huge (like all phones now).

Hmm. Looks handy at first and no doubt it is.

However, if it's like previous Hisense phones it'll be siphoning off your contacts to be sold at a cheap price to data brokers who then sell them on to robocallers.

Other problems with previous Hisense phones:
- the battery killer kills the VPN even when excluded
- the private DNS menu option in Android 10 has been deleted

Also, the screen isn't high contrast and it's so big you need a i-ring to each anything.

But no... I'm not jealous!!

Shall I upgrade?

It looks much better than the previous generation, but still not quite good enough for my taste. There's a lot of ghosting, the colour layer is still considerably less than 300ppi judging from the videos I've seen. I would be quite keen on the BW version if not for the size. The higher PPI, bigger battery and even better audio chip are all tempting features, but not ones I would be able to carry in my pocket at that size...

If I needed a new phone, I'd be tempted, just to see what it's like. But I've just got a second-hand iPhone 6S with 128MB, and that's going to do me just fine for a couple of years.

The problem with using these as phones is that they seem to drop calls and SMS at random. I had to put my SIM cards back in a dumbphone to be sure I get all my messages. Annoyingly, I now have to carry two phones with me..

Calling and sending messages seemed to work perfectly, but the phone was unreliable in receiving them. And this is with full bars (4G).

I don't seem to be alone with this problem either, sadly; and I haven't seen anyone post a solution for it yet.

It doesn't say if the battery is replaceable, which is a must for me. I use my phones for years, and I've never once had one where the battery didn't need replacing.

And the size is just too big for me for a phone. About 5.7" display is the about the highest that's the most comfortable for my hands (and my tiny purse I use). Others are just too big for me and makes them annoying to use.

I'd love to see a decent e-ink phone though to be able to actually read no matter where I'm at outdoors. This one does come pretty close for me.
