Interesting looking phone. They're really trying to push their pedigree as a gaming brand.

 

 

 

One concern is the clock speed of the battery - 4000 MHz smile

It really resembles the Nextbit Robin, they didn't alter the design that much. Too bad they've gotten rid of the lights on the back, they could've changed that to RGB and market it as a Chroma product.

I just got one shipped from the States.

 

Works well for me.

My only problem so far is that on Skinny Direct, I can only make and receive Calls/Text using "3G Only" option, when I switch to "LTE/3G/2G preferred" or "LTE/3G" options can't do or receive Calls/Text. However, mobile internet works just fine. on all modes ("3G Only","LTE/3G","LTE/3G/2G preferred"). Not sure with other majors (Vodafone, 2Degrees)

Have you tried changing your radio band from United States? Open your dialer and dial *#*#4636#*#* -> Phone information -> Menu (three dots on top-right) -> Select Radio Band. Then chose either Australia if you have it, or Automatic. Reboot and test.
