A midrange phone to compete with Oneplus X? Using SD820? SD820 comsidered a mid range now? Geez!

So instead of a 16mp/8mp combo, you can have a single 21-24mp camera with bigger & better optics that swivels from front to back.
With front-end optics, lenses, and mirrors for images and videos, bigger is always gonna better until a new technology is invented for image and video capture. More light, larger aperture, and mirror based optics = more light and richer images. Coupled with the right sensor, could be one of the best cameras integrated with a mobile device.

Anonymous, 20 Feb 2016100% agree! it also very fragile We don't know that it's fragile. They obviously have to put in a lock so it doesn't swivel around on its own. But think of how much better the camera can be with this. Instead of a 12mp/5mp combo or 16mp/8mp, they can get rid of the front camera and then you'd have a 16mp for both. They can spend more time optimizing the camera software since they only have to do it for one instead of the selfie shooter too. Plus they can charge less cause they only have to put one camera in it.
The z1 is crappy. The features on paper are nice but the phone feels super cheap next to a oneplus one which is does not scream luxury itself. I know its a cheap phone but it feels like brandless chinese phones imo.
