I'd recommend AGAINST buying this phone. I've had this phone for two years now:
Bought it Juli 2016 from geekbuying (worst "service" ever, took them 3 months to get it to me while it was "in stock" and after a lot of emailing they "forgot" the papers which cost me a huge fine). I had software problems after a few months (LAG! So much lag!) and after less than a year it was so bad I needed a re-install because RAM memory will NOT properly empty so I effectively have about 600mb RAM.
The build quality is poor. The screen sticks out on top beyond the protection of the sides so a case is mandatory or it will break at the first fall. After about a year the aluminum back started warping and bent to the outside at the SIM slot and the volume and off buttons started responding badly too -probably because they were bent. The battery went bonkers; with 15C/60F degrees or less it suddenly "forgets" 30% battery life until I put it on a charger and the last 15% of the battery are almost dead as well. Meaning that with cold weather it suddenly dies at about 40% battery!
While the back is aluminum it doesn't do sh*t as the top and bottom of the back are actually plastic that is so flimsy that it doesn't protect the corners at all. A few months ago my screen shattered even with case and glass screen protector (the protector is still whole btw, and currently keeping the screen together) because the plastic of a corner broke UNDERNEATH my soft protection case.
I wish I could say that all this is because I abused the phone because I have huge muscles and went mountaineering with it or something, but nope unfortunately not. This has happened with CAREFUL use, I don't go to a gym and the only hikes I take are to the couch or supermarket.
So, good luck to everyone who still has this. The fingerprint scanner is absolutely great.
