    It’s basically just a camera that can double up as a smartphone as well. Most people will buy it just to brag about the camera specs. As a phone, it’s nothing special.

    What puts me off is like Wayne said it’s just a smartphone with average hardware and a camera with an unnecessary amount of megapixels.
