                                                I'm using the alcatel 4s now,, cause it's what I could afford. I'm checking out this phone because of the speakers.
                                                I'm okay with the 4s. Same type of phone as this Asus, but way cheaper.
                                                I have an amoled screen, front facing stereo speakers that sound great. Truly the only thing is the updates for nougat or anything. Doesn't seem to get any. Anyway, I do like this phone, but will wait til it drops in price.

                                                  Same here. Since it doesn't have expandable storage i'm thinking on buying the 1tb version but I don't feel like paying a grand for a phone that's going to get outdated in like a year or two.

                                                                                      So they sell this case only for reviewers??
                                                                                      I'm interested to buy this phone with all accessories.
                                                                                      But where can you buy this case if you're from Europe.... :(
