Glad to see this phone is finally here!
I've finally found the loooove of a lifetime...
A love to last my whoooole life throouuuuuugh!
I'm actually very surprised this doesnt come with a dualcore gpu.
Would a single-core snapdragon processor be enough? I know it comes with a decent gpu as well, but, Hmmm, guess we'll have to wait and see when game developers jump on board
