Reading up on the reviews of this device - while most of them agree that it's a solid device, just about all the reviews also feel it's over-priced for it's specs. At least compared to other similar budget devices on the market. They just do not feel the device's specs warrants the current $229 price. The lack of certain bands bot for my AT&T and international use is making me hold off on this one. I do not feel it's a whole lot better than my ASUS zenfone 2 (USA version) I bought almost 2 years ago for $199.
