I literly received one of these yesterday. Physically speaking they are very impressive. I paid $99. Comes with a case and screen protector allready applied. It's rather heavy, but feels built like a tank.

I do however have some trepidation around data security on this Chinese made device. On first boot when promted by the usual google questions it got to the one where it asks if you want to send diagnostic info to Google. I said no, and was prompted with a message along the lines of "Previously you have selected yes to this. Are you sure you want to select no?" I hadn't logged into my google account at this point, so that was the 1st sign of something arwy. I completed the setup and did a factory reset, and was again presented with the same message, again without signing into my Google account.

Anyone else have a similar experience?

Thanks,
Cal.

just checked the pro version on amazon.ca and there is a $10 coupon that brings the total to $136 with no taxes added.

This was the first lightning deal for the A3 non pro. The Pro has had 8 lightning deals @ $110 minus a coupon.
That's what I bought over 2 months ago.
