A good phone

Pros: *Hardware(+Potential)/Price is very high.
*128GB! Like other phone manufacturers should take a page out of ASUS book here. Flash storage isn't expensive, locking me out of the back of my phone and making me pay $100 extra for 32gb of storage is insane.
*The screen is good - nothing amazing - but it is nice and crisp.
*Apps load quickly and are mostly snappy (Yes even the weird ASUS apps)

Cons: *The amount of bloatware on this phone is insane. Admittedly, ASUS' custom Android ROM includes a really easy layout to disable it - but still. You can spend the first 10 min of ownership disabling apps.
-battery isn't removable (which hasn't been an issue for me yet)
-The phone's construction isn't very well done. It isn't flimsy - no - but if you want to take the back off it can often feel like you are about to destroy the phone. You might say: "Well, that is good, tight construction, correct?" But the problem is that every time I open my phone there is all kinds of residual dirt in the gaps - so no it isn't that good.
* The speaker on the back is almost unusable. Like for the occasional speaker phone call/showing your friends a video it isn't bad. But if you are going to use it to listen to music or fall asleep to something you will quickly realize you need to spring for a speaker - it just isn't meant for long-term listening.
* The camera is really nothing special. This is not something I use a lot and for the "in the moment" shot it is fine.

Overall Review: *I don't game, so perhaps it isn't as powerful for lots of gaming. It does have a bit of slowdown on some PPSSPP roms - but nothing that makes me too frustrated.
*I thought I would hate the stock back plate - but it is actually nice. It has a good grippy feel and it isn't really purple - it is purple in some lights but it often appears more blue or blue/teal.
*This isn't a slight against this phone but truthfully I would like the option to just load stock android - like idk if Google has that kind of power yet but this is ridiculous - I have to wait for ASUS to not just fix firmware issues but also upgrade to newer Android releases.
* I also wish they completely got rid of the bezels. The home, back and app touch keys are dated - and if you aren't putting speakers on the front the bezels are just not helpful.

This isn't a "flagship killer." It seems to me the hardware and software are aimed at different users. The hardware/price seem like it aimed at people who are more technically adept, while the software seems to be aimed at people who are slightly technically below average.

Ultimately, if you are semi-technically savvy (aka want to load a custom rom, load up the 128GB hard drive, etc), and you aren't looking to shell out the money for some other options this phone is great.

Exactly as advertised

Pros: Fast, great memory capacity, has a good feel to it. It is OTG compatible. The 4Gb of ram in addition to the 128Gb of storage really seem to make a difference in performance and it constantly annoys a friend with an Galaxy S6 that it loads pages faster than his phone.
The phone is at least as sensitive, perhaps a little bit better with weak signals than most phones I've owned.

Cons: The battery is not replaceable. Not as good as an OLED in bright sunlight

Overall Review: I'd like longer battery life but that's true of every phone I have owned. The multi-tone color attracts a lot of attention. I am pleased with my choice especially considering the price.

There are too many pre-installed apps but I did not list these as a con because, in all honesty, I find them useful.
