Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

I want a phone with a very good camera and very good battery, and as long as it has expandable memory. Would you recommend the R7 Plus phone to me? it is out of my price range but seems very good, almost enough for me to splurge a bit.

What do you think?


The great thing is a rep in the Whirlpool forums said the R7 will come with lollipop in Australia


Screen resolution?

Any FM radio?
