    @streetsweeper I don't know if it's pride to walk down the street carrying a phone that nobody else has heard of but a select few on this forum.

    How dare you, Sir. Becoming a fanboy of the OPO is a lot of fun, and gives me a chance to do something different than play PS4. ;-)

    That seems so drastic.
    I'm actually not so sure I'm gonna wait much longer :p. But I can't find a good alternative :-\

    A wise word. If only the Nexus 5 would be 50€ cheaper.

    The Nexus 5 is an amazing value, even though it has last years Snapdragon 800 processor. The screen is fantastic. It looks to be as good as the quality of the OPO. And it is a fast phone... plus who couldn't love the feeling of vanilla stock Android. :D

    I hear you, mate, and I am really close to getting one. It`s just that it`s a little too expensive. I had a deadline of 300€, (which is too much already to be honest), so the N5 is above that. And the price will maybe drop as soon as the N6 comes.
    It´s all sad really. :oops:

    If you're going stir-crazy just buy the 64gb OPO Chinese model from **********. The cheapest seller is currently at $436 including shipping to all of Europe. That's somewhere near €300.

    No, thank you. It`s still above 300, and I don`t want to buy the chinese version. I think I´ll just wait a little longer and see what happens first. An OPO invite, a N5 pricedrop or a new Moto G. :)

    People keep rumouring that the N6 is coming soon, but all we got was Google Cardboard (a fascinating little diversion, waiting for my kit to come in the mail, found one on ebay for $40).

    Ouch, that's a really bad alternative to have. Hope for your sake you can get a OPO!

    LG has been making top devices over the past 2 years, that is one of them.

    Dr. Martin, you really have no idea what you are talking about. Why don't you buy the Chinese version and use the LTE. When you succeed, you let us know.

    What do you mean, @bdamir ? The LTE works in all of Europe, it is only not working in USA, Canada and Mexico (to my knowledge).
