after almost 4 years I finally got the email asking to confirm my shipping address.
What does that email really mean in terms of schedule? After answering it - can I expect to receive the phone in days or few weeks or is this just the beginning of yet another months-long waiting period?
I really wanted this phone badly 4 years ago, but now that it’s in sight I’m wondering if I should take it or ask for a refund instead. Apart from the money - I’d like to avoid wasting that much money for something that doesn’t leave my desk drawer because it’s unusable.
I might add that I’m really just fine with any issues that can be solved by software updates.
But my primary points of concern are:
- The thought of carrying a device that is that bulky and heavy is kind of weird. What’s your impression? I had hoped for it to be shrinked about in the last badge as that was said to be a possibility.
- The other thing is the battery life. I have my doubts that they will be able to optimize it that much that it can get me through a day like other stock phones. Is the “suspend” topic that’s discussed here a possible game changer?
- CPU and RAM are sized like 4 years ago. My current phone has more than twice that amount. And judging from desktop Linux - its needs seem to develop with newer hardware, too… so how much future does that hardware configuration have?
Hoping for your input.
