While my previous review had a zoomed in photo comparison with other phones, it may have been overly harsh because most people won't zoom in as much. Here are some taken outside, early evening. The colour balance is too warm (even though the sun was setting, it really wasn't as warm as the photos suggest) and they are overly sharpened, but this photo quality should be good enough for many people. Note: I had HDR turned on, and that disabled the white balance setting. I guess you can turn off HDR and thus adjust white balance if it is incorrect.

[EDIT: I didn't realize this before, but--in Chrome at least--you have to "open in new tab" to see a big version of the photos, otherwise it's just a smaller version of the photo]

Maybe it is for the best because i will move in 7 days to the address that the phone will arrive but now i expect a nice tax of 20-30$ to pay for it.

Seems like a decent phone, but I think I'll wait until later in 2019 as I have no immediate need. They are predicting even cheaper budget phones under 100.00 with decent capabilities, with the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 215 CPU, just announced yesterday.

Mine go shipped through DHL on Friday Jul 5.
Could not deliver to me as signature is required.
I got a bill stating the device was valued at $45USD and I owe a total of $19.74 on it.

$2.94 of GST on $58.77 of CAD after conversion
No PST (Alberta)
No Duties
$11 of Processing Fee
$5 of Transaction Fee.

DHL is such a scammer company... so much fees on so little tax.

This is standard for any item coming into Canada, even your $2 screen protectors. This doesn’t automatically mean you will be charged fees.

My tracking shows the phone has been released from customs already and is now processed in BC. So glad it's now going to be moving towards Ontario. Doubtful it'll be here by Friday, but hopefully by next Monday/Tuesday.
