Yup, I'm an idiot :D

It has been shipped today and the ETA is day after tomorrow. Will post a review once I get it.

Also ordered this case and this TGSP from Amzer. If the phone arrives before the accessories it will stay in my drawer :D

Spigen and Ringke was the first brand I searched. Kahi bhi stock me nahi hai. Amzer did give me a 35% discount.

Checked with Amzer. They say they won't ship before 4/11. Enquired with Tekkitake (authorised resellers for Spigen in India) and they said the cases will be available in a day or two. Hence cancelled the order with Amzer.

So the phone was delivered yesterday. Couldn't spend much time on it as I reached home late. I'm yet to switch to it as the Spigen case hasn't arrived yet and I don't use phones without cases. Here's a brief review (Comparing it with my current driver, Nexus 6P):
  • The build quality is very nice, better than 6P. Very sturdy.
  • Man, this phone is faassst. I have more than 130 apps installed and not once did it lag or stutter. Even apps like Facebook and Chrome opens in a jiffy. Google has done a solid job in optimizating the OS.
  • The AMOLED display is better than 6P and the whites are on the cooler side unlike 6P which is on the warmer side.
  • The fingerprint sensor feedback is more or less the same as of 6P, but the swipe up/down for notifications is nice.
  • The camera is the quickest I've ever seen. The two snaps I took was decent. It does have the halo issue under certain lighting conditions as reported by various tech sites but I was able to get halo on my 6P too. Need to test more. The quality of front camera is the same as 6P.
  • The loudspeaker is very audible and clear then I expected. Although it doesn't come close to the dual speakers of 6P.
  • The vibration feedback is almost the same as 6P. Not too hard, not too soft. Just right.
  • Haven't tested the call quality from earpiece or network reception yet.
Quite satisfied with it, period :D
