    So you are paying $200 extra dollars for an extra selfie camera, and a color changing paint? Because those "pro" specs are for a mid-grade $250 phone specs (90hz, 44w slow charging and Dimensity 920). For $500 you can get Snapdragon 8 Gen1, 120hz screen, and 60w fast charging. Look at Xiaomi 11T. Or, same as this phone specs at much much lower price: Redmi K40 Gaming $350. Poco X3 $260. So many better choices if you dont need the extra selfie camera for $200 extra.
