    And even at the price you bought yours for, it was still too expensive.

    Actually it would be closer to $545 after taxes for us in California. The Expansys version would be no tax either....
    I could pick it up in Asia for less than half the price that MSFT is selling it for...
    For that price you can get the 3G Z3 model. I remember when MSFT was selling the 1020 at that price. Oh boy.

    Sahib,

    1) you bought a prototype model
    2) even if it wasn't a prototype, you clearly missed out on over the past few weeks that myself and 99 have repeatedly mentioned that the 830 is overpriced for an "affordable flagship". MSFT is charge I by Z3 compact money for a phone on a hardware comparison that the Z3 Compact wipes with floor with, while providing a similarly buttery smooth experience.

    For the $500 MSFT is charging for that 830, which doesn't even have the T-Mobile bands, here's what I can get with cash to spare in some cases (as in either unlocked international or t-mo LTE friendly)

    1) an open box unicorn 1520.3
    2) a brand new 930
    3) a brand new Oneplus One 64 GB + a LG G Watch (amazon only)
    4) a mint condition Moto X 2014
    5) a brand new regular 1520
    6) a brand new Z2
    7) a brand new 3G Z3 Compact
    8) a brand new HTC E8
    9) 2 mint condition Z Ultras
    10) a brand new Z Ultra + a brand new Asus Zenwatch
    11) a brand new OPO 16GB + a brand new Zenwatch
    13) a 64GB OPO

    For the total price if it was purchased in your home state, including taxes, I could sneak a LG G3, 2 brand new Z Ultras, a 3G Xperia Z3, etc.

    Point is, the 830 is overpriced. And MSFT didn't even have the balls to sell your prototype model with all the bands in the US store. What a joke.

    I never did say it was affordable and I did say it was expensive a while back . im just saying for the price I bought it that would be perfect , that's how much I got my 810 when it came out

    besides for 500$ I can build a good computer

    I've been to Haridwar(one of the most holy places in my country). The climate was very cool(below 10 C). Quite frankly, not habituated to living in such cold regions. The water of river ganga was icy cool. Took some pictures which I would post later.
    Overall it was a good experience...

    So I'm still enamored by the Z2. I like the feel in hand...and I like the color purple on a phone. The issue I have is that it's really a sidegrade in many ways to the OPO and I'd have to take pictures in Manual mode apparently because the SA mode is so hit or miss. I do like the AudioFX on the OPO and the camera on the OPO shoots in RAW. I guess I'll keep my OPO for another month and if I'm not feeling it, I'll sell in march and get a Z2.

    Yes, you did get a good deal for a prototype. But even for the price you paid for your prototype, you should have paid a few dollars less
