I am curious to know, what do you need all that storage for?
i plan to use it (a7cc or a5cc) as my main phone. so I'll be installing quite a few apps, take a lot of photos (and if possible) watch movies and anime on it.
And also music. I have a huge collection and the internet is not so fast here so I tend to download/store my content instead of streaming it.
Still I think I'll be using less than half of that though :-D but its nice to have a lot to spare.

Exactly so.

Checking a few paperbacks and hardbacks I have to hand, the text blocks inside the books are:

15cm x 8.5cm = 15.9:9
17cm x 9.8cm = 15.6:9
16.5cm x 9.6cm = 15.5:9
15.7 x 8.8cm = 16:9

So a 16:9 screen seems t match the text block aspect ratio of traditionally published books much more than the 4:3 of most ebook readers.
However, 'text block' size/format ratio is not the same as 'page' size/format ratio because you are discounting the left and right margins.

I believe the white space of the margins has an effect on the reading experience, making the process of moving the eyes' focus from one line to the next (or scanning through a paragraph or page while searching for a particular word or phrase) easier, as there is more 'space' for the eyes to roam and get their bearings without the distraction of the vertical (most often dark) border created by the screen bezel being jammed in right up against the edge of the text.

This would not necessarily be a conscious distraction, but there nevertheless.

The (deep-) reading experience involves a complex but much-studied and now quite well understood eye-brain process which is demonstrably sensitive to, and affected by changes in the delivery of the text - e.g. screen (transmitted light) vs paper (reflected light) or the absence/presence of serifs.

The easier it is for the eye-brain to 'see' the text, the greater the ease of reading and also the greater the comprehension of the subject matter. This has been proven time and time again in controlled studies of how much readers retain, and how well they understand what they have just read after reading from a screen vs reading from a book or printed page. The presence of serifs is also proven to ease and therefore aid the process of deep reading.

I have not seen any studies on reading from e-readers (e-ink) but I suspect the ease of deep reading and effect on ability to concentrate etc. lies somewhere between screen and traditional paper. E-ink is certainly less tiring on the eyes - I think that much is generally agreed upon here.

It's been two weeks and I'm loving my A7 CC tbh, but wish I could get notifications from native and cloned apps. I don't get any from either. The only certain way to reach me now is by phone, and I'm being shown some SMS's don't come through.

My A7 CC has started acting really weird starting an hour ago:

- Started not recognizing my SIM card intermittently for a few minutes
- Powercycling on its own, turning on to the spinning VISION logo (which seems like a recovery mode, it doesn't come up on normal reboots)

Now it just doesn't recognize my SIM at all (or a friends), and it reboots on its own (once every few minutes).

Has this happened to anybody else!!? I'm scared, I just received this two weeks ago and love this phone, now I can't even use it!!

Edit: I kept the phone turned off for a half hour and when I turned it on it started acting normally again. No water damage on the phone, no extreme heat. Really concerning behaviour, was panicked, really love this phone, push notification problems notwithstanding..

I would be interested to have Lineage OS on it.
