  1. I had the original F1, and this is hands down a solid upgrade. Voices sound better, photos and the screen are way better. The phone its self is heavier, and more sturdy. Buttons feel very solid compared to the original. Very happy with the improvements.

  2. I got a redwood not a birch I was very very happy with phone. David in support department was fantastic, after many calls he was a great help each time. I am I person who is very OCD about stuff I order. He answered every question and every call very politely.

  3. My phone arrived with a bug, so that it crashes at least once a day and has to be turned off and on. I immediately contacted support and they suggested a series of resets over the course of ten days, none of which worked. I now have the choice between returning it for a refund and buying another phone, or returning it under warranty and having no phone while the company has it. I wanted to support this company but they are making it tough.

  4. This phone truly lives up to all of the hype. The hardware matches the premium price tag (in a good way) and the software is really slick. Highly recommend!

  5. Pleased with this phone. The software clearly shows that Sunbeam thought about how to make navigating the menus and using the functions of the phone as easy as possible using the physical keyboard. The buttons feel nice, everything is accessible, and there are no distractions whatsoever. Voice typing works excellent if, and only if, you have a strong internet connection. Otherwise, it may never pick up what you say, or take a literal minute to process a sentence. However, that’s a minor issue. The reason this is a four-star review is lack of texting RCS support. I believe encrypted RCS is critical for secure communication, and I find the delivery confirmations that RCS provides very reassuring, and I’m sorry to see them missing on this phone. Additionally, since I am using this phone on Google Fi, every incoming text has a weird string of characters appended, and I cannot use visual voicemail or send or receive MMS messages (no texting pictures, nor receiving texted pictures). I also cannot send/receive any texts or calls via WiFi. However, I knew that would be the case going into the purchase thanks to Sunbeam’s great carrier compatibility sheet, and I understand I will have to switch carriers to get those features back.
