    Very exciting read! Cant wait for part 3
    Really excited to learn more about these accessories that Carl mentioned.

    CP: We think it’s a pity when companies work hard on making the phone as compact and attractive as possible, and then when users get the phone, they buy a big bulky plastic case that covers the phone. We will have different accessories in this regards, and we tried to go back to the basic user need of why they need to cover their phone, and we think we have a really cool solution that addresses this need, which will be a surprise announcement soon that I can’t comment more on.

    CP: Because we are a new start-up we won’t initially have any third-party accessory makers working with us, but we have planned a range of accessories that will be released under our own brand.

    Aww crap. No water-resistance. I've never dropped a phone into water personally, but it is certainly a nice to have feature.

    I couldn't agree more with this statement. I love to use my phone without a case.

    IPhone users love to talk about build quality only to put their phone in an Otterbox which negates anything Apple was trying to do.

    Can't blame them. Who wants a premium phone with a cracked screen? I'd say 90% (I just pulled this number out of my butt solely based on my observation) of high end smartphone users have some sort of case on their phone.

    Funnily enough some of those people complain about the size beforehand too...

    Not a fan of cases, that first ding or scratch is always the worst but the device gets a little character.. makes it yours, like a scar.. you know how you got it and theres a story behind it.

    Very interesting interview ;) Can't wait for part 3!!
    However I think that all the 3 parts should be in one thread only, it's too much fragmented this way.

    certainly a fair point,

    but so much for bragging about the build quality when you're not confident enough in it or like the look of it enough to not throw a case over it.

    So no waterproof phone. Maybe in part three we will find out what the mystery battery technology is.

    Any of you notice this:
    We are so confident, in fact, that we are going to invite some of our fans to come to China, including one lucky fan whom we’ll fly in to Hong Kong [which will be decided by a contest], to feel the back of the phone and tell the world about it.
    Seems like two seperate events for me :p

    We can always use liquipel to waterproof the 1+1 after we get it if we feel the need for waterproofing

    True, but expensive ($60 USD for per phone, $30 USD for headphone)
