    In the blog article: https://www.androidcentral.com/our-f...ble-smartphone
    the author makes a very good observation: With a 3100 battery, how well will this hold up in day to day use powering 2 screens? Will it even make it through a day for an average user?

    Thoughts?

    Good question! I guess it's hard to say without any objective study of "in the wild" usage. 3100 isn't bad but, as you say, it's powering two screens and not just one! Who knows, maybe their processor will be apt at consuming less battery than other Axon iterations... I guess we'll find out soon!

    Only 1 screen is on in normal phone mode. When opened or in tent form is the only time both screens work from what I have seen. So yeah, 2 1080p screens with slightly less battery than my Note3 is not going to last more than probably 4 hours of screen on time. Though my Note3 has about 5 generation older Qualcomm 800. So I am sure there is a little better power management, but lighting an LCD is still lighting an LCD.

    Did you end up getting the phone? If so, how are you liking it?

    Nah, decided on the oneplus 5T. Trust them to update OS more regularly and 5T has all top end new chips and a couple hundred cheaper. I expect my next phone will be some sort of flip folding screen morphing thing though. Considering all I usually do is consume media on it.

    Yeah, I could not find a phone that hit so many check boxes and even come close to the price. S8 128gb and only 6gb ram is $800. Got my 128gb 5T with 8gb ram for $560. Really a no brainer and I doubt I will feel a loss for the 1440p screen when S8 doesn't even get dual camera like 5t.

    And no TouchWiz, yay.

    Yup, great specs for a fraction of the price of other flagships! So glad you are liking it!

    Ehh, get it tonight according to USPS. I am sure I will though. As I said, coming from a Note3 any phone would be an upgrade. Finally gave up on waiting for Microsoft to rebound and now that they finally threw in the mobile towel, it's upgrade time.

    So exciting! Be sure to let us know your first impressions in the OP 5T forums!

    I had an S8+ and I took it back. The camera was horrible on it.

    Mine battery does ok. I use it constantly and it's only in the 20% area when I go to bed but it lasts. I watch a lot of TV too.
