Had it three years however nonetheless regarded and carried out as quick because the day I first used it (the battery was depleting sooner nonetheless as a result of age). The chrome steel border across the cellphone made it very sturdy. I can’t keep in mind what number of occasions I dropped it. Even dropped on concrete just a few events and it nonetheless survived. Very underrated for my part.
- Skifarterking: Not utilizing the SD865 is simply an excuse. Realme which is the mum or dad firm of OnePlus launched a 500$ cellphone with it, and from the leaked footage they appear fairly comparable. Don’t perceive why they will’t do the identical.

The incontrovertible fact that it’s one more phablet and it’s referred to as “Nord” and never X2, Y, X^2, proves my level. I can’t imagine that one month or so in the past, I truly thought they’d launch a €300, 5’5 inch sized smartphone with no notches or holes on the display screen. I actually hope the iPhone SE dominates the market onerous, so the Android producers lastly launch one thing apart from a pocket pill, or worse, a smaller cellphone that can get sluggish as a sloth simply 2 years later. Until there I’ll preserve utilizing my Oneplus X.
