But u really getting meh?
Ok, I just received the reservation confirmation. There is no need to pay or enter payment details so there is still time to pull out. The way I see it, unfortunately, most or all of the stock-like Android phones are not sold here officially: Google Pixel, OnePlus, and now Essential phone. It is very frustrating. The Essential phone is definitely a risk. I will decide once the OnePlus 5 is launched. Not exactly an apples to apples comparison of course.

Motorola and now HTC too are pretty stock Android-like too.

I have tried both Moto and HTC. I don't really like their phones so far. Sony is a possible option. Other than my Nexus 6P, my most "stock" phone is my Xiaomi Max running Resurrection Remix. I call it my Pixel XXL.

It's taking too long and I am losing interest as well. Oneplus 5 HTC U11, Sony XZP are all possible contenders. I am still happy with my Mate 9 though. I wished Huawei's software was much more stock like...

US$699 is a fair price lah. It's not a super value for money price, but it's also not an outrageous price. If yuo're budget conscious, or you want more value for your money, there are other alternatives out there.

Pro:
Huge display in small body (5.6 inch screen in a body more for 5.2 phones like my xiaomi Mi5)

Fast charging: Never specify but since they are using Type C, it's highly likely charging at 3A. From my experience with Nexus 5X and Xiaomi Mi5, this is seriously fast, don't really need Qualcomm 3 or 4 quick charge.

Titanium and Ceramic constuction

Snapdragon 835

Stock Android

Possibility for more modules addons

Con:
Small battery for 5.6" screen

No 3.5mm headphones out

No expandable storage

No dual SIMs (I think?)

Unknown at this point:
How good the camera is, and how long the battery life is.

It's an interesting product that I will keep my eye on. Will definitely wait for reviews to be out. If the battery life and camera quality are roughly equal to my Xiaomi Mi5, I will get it. But if battery life sucks, then will skip it.

I won't say "DON'T BUY" or "MTLBBB" until some hard figures are out
