Well built, sharp screen and charging seem's quick, apps loads faster than my old NEXUS 5 (3 years old) and it boots faster !!

So far it won't get to blue and me (Abarth/Fiat in car phone service) or GAMEGOLF live device (it found it but won't live pair, more work) it connects to raxfly bluetooth headset quickly.

Wifi is spot on and all the apps fire up smoothly and a bit faster than the N5, signal test I get -112 in the house on both phones so no issues (yes it's poor but its how it is on 4g/3g with three here in outer Coventry UK)

its heavy and feels it 131g v 173g no problem I understood this after reading the specs.

It feels like a premium phone and I like the fingerprint sensor, which to be fair is hit and miss even with a double fingerprint scan and going through #NatPhoneGuy on youtube tutorial.

Phone needs some serious LOVE to be perfect or even a daily reliable DRIVER !!

Do I root it I hate apps sitting being unused that I'll never used  A BIT OCD LIKE THAT !!!!

anything I've missed ?? £135 delivered still good value for a decent smartphone

I rooted my Apollo Lite just to install Dolby Atmos and I have to say it was definitely worth it

I initially also rooted to be able to use Dolby Atmos. It's worth rooting for that alone, as it makes the sound quality far, far better. Since then though, I've added Xposed, which allows you to be able to do things such as block YouTube ads, enable YouTube Background Playback, use things like GravityBox to tweak all sorts. The list goes on and on.

I've used Xposed for a while, main reason for me to root is TIDY, but there seems little on the handset from the start !!

UPDATE: The phone needed to settle in, connects perfect #Bluetooth items Blue and me and also GAMEGOLF tracking, the best part you moan about the battery but I used 40% in 4 hrs with GG running where my nexus needed 2 power packs to just get through 18 holes so really impressed with the battery when in use !!

Call quality is spot on :-)

is root OK with latest OTA3 ?

This is why I just disable system apps, instead of uninstalling them. That way if issues like this arise you can just re-enable them.
