I know... I was so set on getting the Z2 and I was so sure about it... Until I heard the news that it might only comes out in Verizon and watch some camera feature that HTC One (M8) offers.... Now I'm torn....

I would say all these carriers dont get their sh!t together and definitely dont want to benefit the customers. They are the vampires sucking their customers dry by not giving them all the benefits they could from the mobile manufacturors.

I agree. I was set on the Z2. Seems like the best all around phone coming. But now with Verizon only, it's out. Don't like the camera on the new HTC. The S5 is ugly. LG G2 is old now. Nexus is old. Apple? Get real. G2 pro 2? Last years specs. Looks like I might not be able to take advantage of T-mobile's Jump!. Nothing I want to Jump to. Picky I am...

I have a 1520 that will be my daily driver too.. I don't like android at all but figured sense looks different enough for me to try it

One does not simply lists... TouchWiz as an advantage for a Samsung smartphone.

Seriously.. What the hell is wrong with PA? Sense destroys Touchwiz in terms of consistency and following Android guidelines, which are the only two facts that aren't subjective to opinions.

They are a bit inconsistent... That's what I can see. TouchWiz is visibly unpolished and rushed, while Sense is the exact opposite.

G Pro 2 but no Note 3?

7. jaytai0106 (Posts: 1888; Member since: 30 Mar 2011)


that is weird. I don't think either G Pro 2 or Note 3 should be considered since they are in different category

A site isn't biased if it disagrees with you.

They chose Samsung and Apple because millions of customers have shown their faith in both these brands.

Actually I am very open minded when it comes to smartphone. Even as an Android fan, I still can see the value and goods in iPhone and iOS. Every manufacturer brings something different to the table and that's what drives the industry forward. Back then when Blackberry is basically the only smartphone maker, they stood still for years... Now they are left in the dust. I like to try out different phones from different companies. However, if you pay attention on the amount of stories they put out on the a certain phone, Apple and Samsung will always come out on top. Even an article only contains 10 lines to talk about some simple thing...

1st of all G Pro2 should not be considered as its a different category. If you decide to consider phablets also as an option then omitting Note 3 is unpardonable. It should be among the 1st consideration if you include phablets as it is still the best.

Good post. Good question. They won't answer with the obvious and honest answer. They weren't impressed with the M8.

Waterproofing and a heart rate monitor are a big deal to them? I pose that as a question because the finger print scanner has been done before and flopped. Although it was, you know... Revolutionary.
