Well Dave ...
good thing you paid that much...
since ZTE phones will shortly be worth that much ...if Android and the U.S. bans have their way...

Have you read the article?

"The move was sparked by ZTE’s violation of an agreement that was reached after it was caught illegally shipping U.S. goods to Iran."

Hi, This does not sound quite right. They were selling telecommunications equipment, presumably made by ZTE, to North Korea and Iran. Not U.S. goods. Maybe the equipment used US parts. Apparently ZTE did not "punish" the involved employees but instead gave them bonuses! The ban ensued...

On an other note. I bought a drone for $20. Still checking it out but it seems to work pretty well. Looking forward to torturing my cats!

And it isn't just any goods...
It is specifically technology that ZTE was selling...
Tech that violates ...for a reason...
Zte and ...another company.. I cannot remember ...have been in tech violations before.

Couldn’t care less about US/China trade wars.

They will eventually destroy the world.

I vote no ban.

Best suggestions for an os for it?
I see a variety of options
I would prefer plasma...but there really hasn't been much resolved in the issues surrounding wifi and the keyboard...
Somehow I missed your post. I recently got myself a Nexus 5 too. Guess what for?

In the meantime, you could try this out.

Yes, US parts. The OS, to be specific. At least that was my understanding.
