Its an LG phone called the Fx0 running FirefoxOS.

It came out early this year as a carrier exclusive in Japan but has recently started selling on Amazon for $50.

I really dig the look and I think I read when it first came out that its based largely on the 2013 Nexus 5, I could be wrong though.

I have a bunch of pics of it if anyone wants me to dump them.

It came with two different backs, both transparent but with differing textures.

It's a low-end device and even if the device is modeled after the G series handsets, the battery is surprisingly non-removable. At least it kept the SD card slot.

If Firefox would appeal more to nerds and free software fanatics (OS and browser), and made fxos run android apps, this would have a market. Otherwise, they have to beat tizen first.
>>
No Android, no deal. I don't care if its 3 bucks. Firekek in all forms is shit.

Can I install gentoo on this thing?
>>
>>51414655
I'd buy if in the U.S. and it had some downloadable apps. Would be perfect with android+FF browser instead of chrome
>>
>>51414655

So how is Firefox?

Tempted to get it just to give it a shot.
>>
>>51414655

So I ordered one.

I figure at the very least I can use it as my American burner instead of my shitty cheap Android phone.

It is removable.

Amazon even sells replacements.

$50? I see $99+

There are multiple iPhone "case" mods around including transparent one, it just costs $$$
>>
>>51414757

There are transparent back covers for iphone4 and sony Z series.

They should of named it the 0xF

It's triggering my autism that it's hex in reverse

There's no reason to not buy this. If you're not a retard, just buy it, check if there are ways to unlock bootloader, make a ROM based off moto G and prosper

also, LG has really come a long way, I must say
>>
>>51419433
lowest price I've seen is $60

>>
>>51419704
oh.. where can i get one for my xperia? google gives no results except for a bunch of transparent cases
>>
>>51419433

I found and ordered it for $60 off Amazon.

Unfortunately they wont deliver it to where I live now, so I gotta send it to afriend in the States.

Wont get it until late December.

Can we activate it on GSM US carriers like T-Mobile or Metro PCS?

That's usually what "unlocked" means, yes

I can literally see the removable battery in the photos.
>>
Are "transparent back covers" the new fad these days?
>>
>>51415888
Nice trips, but mine only came with one back.
>>
>>51424195
Yes
because they're retro like a gameboy or n64 ecks dee
>>
Not available in Europe, right?
>>
>>51424193
Hence the use of the word "surprisingly"
>>
I'd rather stick Sailfish on it.
Looks pretty cool, though.

Why did the transparent case meme die?
I loved them on all my old phones
>>
>>51426100
It looks like a ricer /g/ meme.
>>
>>51426130
even if it's not fitting your taste, it is something different for a change compared to all those fucking iphone clones out there.
>>
>>51426144
It looks like cheap plastic shit though. Ever heard of "if it ain't broke, don't fix it"?
>>
should i buy it g is the specs good everything ok
>>
>>51426164
>Ever heard of "if it ain't broke, don't fix it"?
Then why the fuck did we abandon the old, tested and reliable phones that continued to work for 10 fucking years without the slightest need to reboot it as long as it had a working battery?

Smartphones ARE broken.
And they need to be fixed.
>>
As an owner of this phone, I am pleasantly surprised by how most of you aren't mindlessly bashing it.
>>
>>51424548
NIgga go look up unboxings. It comes with the battery removed.
>>
>>51426315
I always loved transparent casings for tech and only had the opaque gameboy back in 1990.

Of course I'm all over this phone. I just wish it was available in the EU and for a similar price. But I BET that if it was available here, it would cost double or even triple of that US price.

How's the camera by the way? Especially indoor quality. Could you post an example?
>>
>>51420401
>>51422622

I am in Japan. Hope it will work here.

How do you lie FFOS?
