Apple sells out every single opening weekend - it's proof their phones are more desirable than oxygen. Google sells out on release - they didn't make enough phones, they suck, boooooooooooooooooooo Google. Got to love the impartiality of some people.

Antutu over 35000. It is very smooth and battery life is very good.
Just tried the Quick Remote function, it can control the TV and digital TV box. Not try the air conditioner yet.

nowadays, people change phone every year. plastic or not, so what?

we buy phones to use everyday as a tool, not for its resale value. buy a block of gold if you want it to hold value.

It seems that it's Google's strategy with limited supply to make a demand.

The understocking of this device will lead to missed sales opportunities. Nevertheless, many will have opted for LG's very highly regarded G2.

I know it doesn't cost half as much, it was just for the sake of the joke.
But it costs half of an iPhone and has much better hardware, for example.

And google holds the majority of the profit over lg. So of ciurse there is a profit to be made. Just look at how fast they sell out which increases demand and they can build to order almost meaning less stock sitting around
