    For the specs, this is pretty much impossible to beat. It's a new device, just without the VR headset.

    I have an Idol 4S, and it definitely has some bugs. And Windows 10 Mobile is on life support. But, if you're like me and want to remain on Windows 10 Mobile for awhile, this is definitely the way to go. As much as I like it, $100 is about as much as i'd be willing to spend on a device running Windows 10 Mobile right now.

    Great find. That’s a lot of hardware for the price.

    I'm surprised they charge an extra $70 for the headset!
    my 950 is running fine right now, and I really wanted to go back to 5" or less screen size. For $100 though, I could put up with a bigger phone. :)

    I bought an Idol 4S with the VR headset for $250CAD last year. I bought a second one for $125CAD so I'd have a backup phone in case I break my primary. I don't think I'll ever need it but these are awesome phones.

    Annnnnddddd I got one. $100 is still hard to beat. As far as the phone goes, yep it is too big, but I'll use it. Colors are really saturated, with no apparent way to adjust it. :( Fingerprint reader is cool, but having it right below camera means fingerprints on the camera... Also, I think it reads my fingerprint better when I am putting it IN my pocket rather than when I take it out. I've pocket dialed several people already. Camera is OK compared to 950, not as great, and the response of the first shot is a little iffy. Still quite nice though. I love the forward facing speakers! much better range/response. The phone is noticeably stiffer than my 950; I don't worry about it twisting/bending in my pocket.
