    Apparently nowadays “high-end” is synonymous with no external storage, some things that has been norm for decades on feature phones (aka dumb phones). Smartphone my ass.

      I think everyone is following the Google strategy of no SD card. It’s definitely not for me. I would prefer an 8 gb phone with SD slot.

        Clone? They’re the exact same phone (TCL is Alcatel OEM) and at 67.5mm wide, it’s probably the most compact 5″ phone out there.

          Ah sorry, you mean this Lenovo is the clone of Idol X, I agree and it’s even less capable.
