    ""This phone is great, but please be careful before buying this thing. The item description doesn't say anything about where the phone will work, and only says it'll works on GSM networks. This isn't true if you live in the US. After buying this, I did extensive research on some concerns I developed, and after getting into contact with someone who bought the phone, it turns out that this phone does not work on a majority of US mobile network, most notably T-Mobile. This version is actually the one produced for Hong Kong, but happens to work on other networks in Australia, Europe, but not the US. If you plan to buy this phone for use in the US, but the US998 model, or the US998U model once it comes out. They work on all GSM US networks, including CDMA networks like Verizon. I'm not gonna give this a one star review because the phone itself is great, and the error was because of my lack of research, but it should really be emphasized in the item description that it doesn't work in the US. Please be wary before buying this, do your research, and buy the model that works in country. I'm currently in the process of returning my product for a full refund, and am gonna get the US model mid-February." - Kara [Verified Purchase]"

    " I was looking to get a new phone that had a much better camera. It features a dual 12MP camera. i have been wondering what it would be like to have a phone with the dual camera set up. I really like the affect that the dual camera does with blurring the background. Iphones have always been great but the Iphone 8 plus has to be my favorite. "

    "The OnePlus 5T is a fully featured, very nice phone. There's not a lot bad to say about it. I would not give it a "best" rating among contenders like the iPhone and the Galaxy series, but it's not so bad if you're looking for something different."

    "The HTC U11 looks like an amazing phone! Where else can you find Amazon Alexa on a smart phone? This amazing phone with a built in 16 MP front cam and 12 MP rear cam not only has the ability to take great pictures, but also you can experience hands free question and answer sessions with Amazon Alexa. Being water and dust resistance is incredible too because it saves your phone from an early death. The price is comparable to other phones, but is somewhat pricey compared to other Androids. "

    "I have used this phone in the past. It didn't deliver at all. I bought it for 500$ and guess what? that doesn't even included warranty, not in USA! Absolute waste of money as my phone broke after using for 6 months only. Also camera doesn't focus very well and pictures were all blurry and it doesn't even record finer details in low lights. Phone overheats after few hours of use and makes a lot of noise. I never had this issue with my other phone. Poor performance. A huge disappointment!"
