    For $200, I'd expect it to have a gyroscope .

    Use the YouTube app to find an interesting 360 degree video, then play it while changing the phone's orientation and confirm/watch the video change viewing angle for fun - which will prove it has a gyro also. Neat if you've never tried watching a 360 video on it before.

    Great suggestion. Just took a rollercoaster ride! LOL This is all new to me.

    As for the $200 and should have I agree. It was just that there had been earlier concerns/complaints (mostly from India and their version of the 7X) that it originally didn't have a gyro. Obviously the US flavor does.

    Hope you didn't get sick on the ride . Can you post the link - if it's not too much of a challenge?

    Thanks for the phone leash link... . Didn't know they made those things

    You might be aware of this:

    But hopefully there's nothing about us that interests them, if it is true

    Yeah I stumbled upon that leash site during my researching. Just got a shipping status email.

    And yes I'm aware of the scared of Chinese Huawei business. Considering all the components we get from China as it is, as well as units like iPhones manufactured there, one has to wonder about this specific reaction. They aren't a government entity either which again begs the question about this reaction.

    Thanks for the coaster link - neat. People without gyros can pan around by touching/dragging across the screen while the video is playing - not quite as nice as just moving the phone around.

    I understand the government's position on not wanting to use Chinese-made network equipment in government network systems.

    Agreed but I was keying on the AT&T backing out of selling Huawei phones due to government pressure and not network systems.

    Different issue:
    On my old 2.3.6 android I could move apps to my SD card. Seems this function is not available on the 7X even if you make the SD card your "defaul" location in settings. Honestly I don't know how much of an advantage doing that is under android 7 (and soon 8), but the meager 32Gb has me wondering. BTW mine shows 18.65 Gb free.
