Received my phone with no physical issues and it works just as anticipated. My guess is the reason for no warranty is that it is a Chinese model (tencent) updated to world firmware, thus, that de-activated the warranty and also makes it so you don't get automatic updates. However, manual updating worked just fine on mine, thus it wasn't a big deal. From a phone perspective, Armory Crate, Game genie, dual Wi-Fi, mappable air triggers, full customization, and awesome themes are all a big plus! Obviously, the technical specs are pretty awesome too! The sound from the system speakers is also outstanding. Kudo's to a nicely designed phone!
This phone is amazingly smooth and fashionable in white. Charging is fast for a battery this size. Just don't use it in bed holding it, your hands will be sore and the rubber thing on the side is a joke. You will lose it in the first few days.
