Most of the ppl , don't want tin-can sealed phones. The market prove it. Only iboys buy it, because they are Unique Breed.
Ray and the other iTech "experts" must shut up, ones and forever. LOL

Is there a chance that the iPad 5 will be more expensive than its predecessor? I certainly hope not!
5. Shatter (Posts: 2036; Member since: 29 May 2013)
No the ipad 4 is already overpriced they have plenty of headroom for their profit margins.

I don't really have any sound knowledge about android devices but my question is if samsung builds metal devices will they have a plastic frame?

So you admit you don't have any "sound knowledge" about Android devices, yet chatting sh¡T about them.

Hi ray,i was thinking of buying the z ultra because of its awesome screen,design,performance and the fact that it is Water Proof. Now i'm a bit confused about which phone to buy as the note 3 is available. I here that the note 3 is more compact than the ZU cos of its lower screen size,but which screen is more vibrant?
as Sony has used its Triluminos display,which appears to produce a true to life colors
than the over saturated screen of the Note 3.
Please guide me to buy a better screened phone

Z ultra is a tablet with phone functions. Buy it If you want something that doesn't fit in your trouser / pants pcokets.

11. XperiaFanZone (Posts: 2129; Member since: 21 Sep 2012)
What might we see different on phones from next year?
14. maccess (Posts: 742; Member since: 16 Jan 2013)
ray , did you uncheck the "auto adjust screen tone" on the note 3 display setting already?? you have to uncheck it to make the note 3 or all the galaxy phone's screen brighter..

That awkward moment when you write an article and refer yourself as a third person
"In the sixth episode of our Q&A series, Ray S. is going through a number of interesting topics, ..."
Yet this article was written by Ray S.
Was it that hard to say "In the sixth episode of our Q&A series. I'll be going through a number of interesting topics, ..."
lol, just saying

600 nits and brightest smartphone screen ever? :D LoL nokia 701 is unbeatable in this category with result of 1000+ nits
17. tedkord (Posts: 11911; Member since: 17 Jun 2009)
Brightest they'd ever tested. Certainly brighter than the iPhone 5s in sunlight, which they had tested.
The problem was probably that Ray didn't test it in auto brightness. Though since this is a tech blog, he rely should have known that.
My question was actually rhetorical. We all know Ray's agenda.

in soviet russia, note 3 does not have high nits, only broken arm.

In almost all benchmark tests the iphone comes out on top, is it because of the awesomeness of the 64bit processor or is it just because ios is a lighter OS compared to android? Peace.
37. Ant34 (Posts: 193; Member since: 10 Aug 2013)
The iPhone has a low resolution screen compared to Android flagships and that contributes to it along with iOS being lighter and better optimized.

where do you guys store the phones you review? is there some secret hoard in the basement of your office? :D

Why charging time is not included in a battery test?
