                        Did you test the Xperia 5? I bought one, and it had more scratches after 2 months than my Oneplus 5t has after 2 years. Would be nice if you could confirm.

                                        Since you asked what device i went with i'll tell my short story, I had my heart set on that Asus ROG 2 phone but my note 8 took a bad fall in october and completely broke before i could make the $700-800 purchase to buy outright in december, being unable to go without a phone i wound up just getting the note 10+ since you can only finance the mainstream phones thru carriers. it's a solid phone but will always be my silver medal. :(

I love your videos, but your voice is just wonderful. I am looking at getting a Oneplus 7T as my next phone, I currently have a Huawei Ascend Mate 7 as my phone. It has lasted 4 years so far, just time for a new phone.
