I paid $5 extra for tracked/expedited shipping, and total came to $220 USD shipped to Ontario. But Amazon will likely refund some of the import fees (as they often do), since they overcharged on the tax.
This is the third time I have ordered this phone (the first two were for family members, this one is for me). I flashed them with the official LineageOS 14.1 (Android 7.1) nightly builds and they work great. Unofficial builds are available for LineageOS 15.1 (Android 8.1), and it looks like it will be fully supported when the official LineageOS 15.1 builds are released.
The battery is also great, 4070 mAH. Performance is also great. No headphone jack, unfortunately (but comes with an adapter and a USB-C headset). Screen quality is acceptable (it's still IPS, but not top-notch quality in terms of contrast ratio and colour reproduction - it's not bad either though).
For Freedom Mobile users: The phone supports HSPA Band 4. It also supports LTE Bands 4 and 7, but not 13 and 66. (Freedom will be activating bands 7 and 13 some time this summer)
For this price, you will not find a phone with 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, a Snapdragon 821 processor, and 5.5" 1080p screen anywhere else.
IMPORTANT: If you don't plan on flashing this phone with LineageOS, please do yourself a favour and press the "Back" button on your browser right now. The stock ROM is complete garbage. It is honestly, without exaggeration, the worst I have ever seen. So don't say I didn't warn you
