Pretty sweet. Now that's a phone I'd buy.

I still want this phone though:

For 14,000 dollars, they could have done a better job on the faces of those statues.

just get a cheaper and slap EVA cover on them if you want

One Plus Two?
https://oneplus.net/2

not sure if they still have One Plus One phones..

but the 16GB is $250 and the 64Gb is $300?..

One Plus 2 is a bit pricey but still cheap comparing to those $600-$700-ish phones

That phone is appealing to my nerdy side on so many different levels... Are they even accepting international orders?

I'm a sucker for wanting all the Evangelion merchandise besides being broke, but honestly I would rather just get some eva phone cases for the phone I already have since the main reason for purchasing this (for me) would be the aesthetic.

And I would be lying if I said I wasn't interested in those life size characters.

The Rei 1/1 scale statue actually looks pretty good but the Asuka statue they could have did a slightly better job on the face. It looks like for that one they just upscaled the old Kaiyado figure I have that was made many years ago and just made it life size. Strange these 1/1 scale figures are getting more and more expensive I remember the older ones you could get for about $5,000.00 US dollars and had real actual clothes on them. Only downside because of shipping it would cost a few thousand more do to size, weight, and from coming over seas.

As for the phones I looked into the other 2 Eva phones in the past but they are usually locked to Japanese Phone Carrier services only so their is no point of importing this new one if you can't use it. And I don't think you could jail break it easily in a attempt to make it work state side. I've never seen one that was made to work outside of Japan.

That design of the Evangelion smartphone looks epic with its bright green and indigo colors! Smile

The statues of Asuka, Rei, and Kaworu look alright, but, yes, their faces could have been better.
