Ok Snail! While I've always been a fan of Snail's gaming phone designs, from my brief past experience, the major issue lies with the phone aspect. Namely, carrier support. Here is the US, their devices lack the required bands to be consistently connected. Gaming device wise, I enjoyed both the 78P01, and the W3D. Beyond their apparent faults, gaming was great with these devices. But data connection and phone calls were virtually non existent. I am still unsure what happened with my 78P01 and W3D. They both just got restricted from using towers after a while.
I really hope they concentrate more on the phone aspect of the device, otherwise it'll become just another Android Gaming device, in which there are better alternatives.
Nevertheless, the gaming kid in me is still excited about this and hoping it finally addresses the issues of the past. Seems they finally stepped into Lollipop judging from the screenshots. The design reminds me of the GPD Q9. The rounded edges make it seem very pocket-able for its size. Still the same D-Pad design, i just hope it's more smooth moving. Fighting games were kind of tough with the older devices.
I assume with the omission of start and select, they will be soft buttons like the W3D. Also, with omission of L2 and R2, may make shooting games a tad more complicated for mapping.
That price point is also highly competitive. My alternative is the MOTO Z2PLAY with Gamepad MotoMod, which when combined, would be a hefty nearly 700 bucks. if not more. Even if I were to get the Moto Z, pricing would still be about 400 at best.
Well Snail, seeing as you are the only one still doing Chimera gaming phones, let's see what you got.
