  1. I see they more or less ported TouchWiz. this could be a viable platform if they can sort out the Android compatibility layer issues and price it below Android devices with similar specs

  2. So after 2+ years of rumours they’ve finally released a device. Interesting. I hope for their sake it doesn’t become another Jolla or Firefox phone.
