    We have like a whole month to suffer while we wait for our new phones.

    So just fer grins, what will you do to help ease the suffering ?

    I'm plotting and planning.

    Hoping we have a custom recovery before I actually get it
    Once the box arrives I will:
    1. Install the screen protector
    2. Unlock the boot loader
    3. Make a nandroid
    4 ROOT IT!
    5. Put it in it's case
    6. Profit

    If I receive my invite to Project Fi I will sign up and use it there for a couple of months before I kick Big Red to the curb.

    How bout you ?

    I will check youtube daily for new videos. The quick hands on ones there now are all the same and quite boring. I'm hoping reviewers will get theirs ASAP if they didn't already get to take one at the launch event so we can get some more input/deeper looks.

    I'll also debate buying a case right away and continue to watch my email inbox for shipment confirmation.

    This could be a fun experiment to see who ships it faster, Google or Huawei, since I ordered mine from the latter and everyone else on the forum has so far ordered from big G.

    I'm avoiding all the reviews. The only opinion I care about now that the $$$ is spent is MINE!

    But seriously, since I'm coming from an antique Note II - I will probably be wow'd! and kinda like movies, my opinions and the reviewers rarely jibe.

    Oh yeah, I don't take much to heart with reviewers. I actually stopped watching some of the hands on ones where they were complaining about the camera bump. One of the others, I liked more because they said it's really not as pronounced as the pictures made it look. Since I'm ok with the idea of it, I don't care what you think of it. Show me the software and give me battery life stats (I'm assuming these will be pretty good. If nothing else, just because of the size of the battery.)

    Also, @popcenator, if you have to wait a month to order, you won't be waiting too much longer than anyone else.

    @cynkrzy, did Google say these would ship in 5-7 weeks from them? Huawei didn't even bother to tell me how long I should expect to wait before it ships.

    @Jonny Kansas - They gave me a ship date, the end of the first week in November.

    I usually only watch reviews to see opinions on battery life and watch when they're messing with the phone to see how smooth it is. I just wonder, since it's the 810 and being metal, will it have overheating issues like the others, and will the signal be good.

    I'm banking on the V2.1 meaning they solved the overheating issues. And that the antennas being in the "hump" will make for great reception.
