It's officially dethroned Nexus 5 as the best Android smartphone deal, if you want the best bang for your buck. I don't think it's the best smartphone in the world but it's certainly the best deal "right now".
Here's timeline for those of you clam jumpers: 01:55 Feel Test 02:02 Comparison with Note 3 05:45 Powering on 07:20 Screen-off Gesture Shortcut Demo 09:50 Toggle between Soft/hard buttons 10:25 Bezel comparison with LG G3 11:45 Camera and Camcorder 13:50 Quadrant Benchmarks 14:15 Antutu Benchmarks
For just $349, you can get 64GB plus latest 801 Qualcomm Snapgragon processor and CyanogenMod 11S ROM running out of the box. (No root and installing custom ROMs required to get it running just right but it's also easily rootable.)
Oh yeah, finding an invite is like finding a needle in Haystack. So good luck and stay patient!
If you want the best smartphone "right now" and you don't care about saving money, grab the LG G3, Galaxy S5, HTC One, or wait for Note 4.
