While I am aware that the phone is not "mid range" like many who seem to be stuck thinking it is, based solely on not understanding how the configuration of the chipset sets it apart from other leading edge phones, I am not happy about the price.
I've been following x phone details for months, and been planning to snap one up the second they become available, but I will not be contracting up again with any of the big carriers. US cell phone plans are outrageously expensive compared to the rest of the world, and I don't want to be tied for 2 more years to any of them.
Our last contract ends in November and I won't get any new phones with contract.
I was seriously hoping for an unlocked GSM phone that I could travel with.
My current phone is a Motorola Atrix 2. I love this phone, it works, it just works. Feels good in hand, never locks up or hangs up, or anything. Battery is a little tight for a full day, but I usually make it. The problem is I got shafted by them not upgrading beyond ICS. Totally ridiculous in my opinion.
My wife got an Atrix HD from a friend and it is a total piece of crap, though, it still gets android updates.
If the price for an unlocked X is going to be $600 I just don't know... I just don't know.
My atrix 2 works fine...
