Just ordered mine from Tomtop.com hoping to have it by Christmas.

Just to be sure, what kind of heavy sign vinyl did you protect it with?

I was going for this phone to prevent to get additional protection, but now you have me worried.

I have read of one or two back glass screens cracking, I've also read that as per AGM the phone is still waterproof and dust proof with the back panel cracked. I think the mil spec is still good for the operation and gust of the phone just not the ascetic rear panel glass. I will be putting a layer of clear vinyl tape on my rear panel to help prevent a crack

where did you read that? I have read only positive reviews so far, so I have missed those with the cracked glass.
will look into securing the back cover as well then if this is really a weak spot. Thanks for pointing it out!

Surprised there is not more interest in it. It has to be one of the best (if not the best) rugged phones out there.
And having some extra sensors and a big battery is really a plus in the field.

reading up on installing TWRP and Magisk on this phone, but not having much luck so far.

I could not find any posts about this on the community page: can't post the link yet, but it is "facebookdotcom" and then "AGMphone/community"

What I have found is a bit more worrying though, complete lack of support and communication from AGM's side. :/

The note on face book has a time stamp of Nov 14 at 9:27pm. I did notice all the comments about a lack of support, I also saw that AGM released a video of the testing for the X1 new operating system. In all I still bought the phone as it ticks all the right boxes. I dont relay need to have the latest and greatest updates, I just hope it will be reliable for the next few years.

Hear what you are saying, as I have never had to use phone support since my first mobile end of the 90's. We should be fine, and ideally Lineageos will be able to prolong the lifespan of this device.

on the page I have 'linked', there is no post dated November 14th. There is one from November 4th (Where's the X1 update?) and the next one is November 18th talking about supporting AGM as they seem to struggle.

This is the post

Ulf Henriksen It seems to be a rugged phone, but the backside is shattered after two days in my pocket. I have been walking and in and out of my car. Not so impressed as my Sony xperia takes the same with no problems.

Does anyone know how to unlock the bootloader? No way to install a recovery without doing so. The fastboot oem unlock command does not work.
Also, there's a video of a walnut breaking the back glass on youtube. Look up "AGM X2 Defeat walnut"
