Still Not Surprised: Saygus has Once Again Delayed the “World’s Most Advanced Smartphone”

The Saygus V2 has been delayed once again. You still shouldn’t be surprised by this. We have been telling you to expect this over and over agin. In fact, we asked you when pre-orders opened if you wanted to bet on whether or not this thing would ship in the 6-8 week timeframe that was originally given. No one should have taken that bet, because it was a sucker bet. A company like this (newish, inexperienced, and who is clearly overpromising to excite a small customer base), who is attempting to take a barely working phone to polished retail unit that’s delivered to the masses in two or three months, is setting itself up for failure. Hell, even large companies who actually know what they are doing would struggle with that tight of a window.

So yeah, after missing their March shipping date, then emphatically declaring that May 22 would be the official shipping date, Saygus is once again delaying the release of a phone they continue to call the “world’s most advanced smartphone.” This time, they don’t even have an estimate as to when this little guy will begin to ship. I guess they learned after missing two shipping dates that you should stop with the promises.  (more…)

ASUS ZenFone 2 Unboxing and First Look!

 

Even though I’m still fully in love with the Samsung Galaxy S6 and hate to put its pretty glass body down on a table for more than a few minutes because I always need to be touching it, something about this newish trend of super cheap phones with decent specs has finally caught my attention. I feel like I need to invest some portion of my life into the bargain bin to see if life can continue without a hiccup. Or maybe it’s that there is too much value to be had out there for me not to experience it.

And with that random thought, enter the ASUS ZenFone 2 into my pocket. Yes, we have one in house!  (more…)
