Yes, Microsoft is very safe... they just posted another record breaking profitable quarter hahahaha!

Joking aside but really,
Blackberry is not safe... it's circling down the drain as we speak :-(

Just joking hahahaha!

Motorola. They are just as good as Chinese OEM in my country. But they are still damn good at innovation. Going after ergonomics was an awesome idea. Going after 2012 specs was not such a good idea. Going with Active Notifications was awesome too. I hope they can keep up with others in the specs department.

Apple, Microsoft and Android are US companies.
BlackBerry, Sailfish, Ubuntu, Tizen and Symbian(late) are not and are less likely to be tampered by US goverment.

Try just as likely (if not more likely) to be targeted by NSA. If the object of interest is using brand X, NSA will find a way to hack into it. Resistance is futile.

yeah but tizen ubuntu and sailfish all have their servers in europe not in the usa thus it's harder for nsa to get in there

Newsflash buddy...the NSA isn't interested in 99.9% of phone users. Be more worried about what hackers and private companies of all national origin are doing with your data. And every other government in the world, even those in the wonderful EU are spying too.

Nokia, Motorola, and Google.
But I think Google will serve the best.

I think Motorola is doing some very interesting things. I can't wait to see what they do next. I probably won't buy one but I'm watching.

I'm also intrigued. The X was the most innovative phone of 2013, and it had great ergonomics. If they could get a 5" screen into that footprint, with another great SoC, great battery life, and Motomaker, I will definitely grab the successor.

I have really had a soft spot for Moto - all the way back to the OG Droid X. I am quite satisfied with my Maxx, so I am hoping Moto releases a follow-on to the Maxx that is compelling.

Update - hopefully, Moto is able to add an enhanced camera function (OIS and faster shot-to-shot performance one to mind) to the Maxx.

I loved my Droid X. First smartphone that really wowed me. The ones before that were an HTC Touch Pro and HTC Droid Eris.

I think we must look forward to every manufacturer as the intensity of rivalry is getting high.

Ok, Nokia/MS in the first place, a little strange, but fine. But Samsung and Sony third and second, WTF?! What new can be expected from them? Apple introduced the 64-bit CPU and OS, the fingerprint sensor A YEAR ago and still they can't catch up, and now they plan for solar-charger integrated in the screen, come on! One must be Asian or blind, to be a fan of cheap plastic toys from Shmashung, LJ, Huwayaway, and etc. Motorola was once good, but they got bought by Giggle, so...that was it for them.

the 64bit CPU is crap if you have less than 4 GB of ram. and Honestly I don't see why would Samsung or HTC or any other company try to copy the fingerprint scanner because it's so damn useless

its because of apple did !!
i bet if apple use plastic they're going to say plastic is the best !
and about the 64 bit, the Q is, what did it do for ur phone ?? completely nothing but faster in a 0.5 sec !

Not really. Yes, ARMv8 supports 64 bits, but it's much more than that. It addresses several weaknesses of the ARM architecture and refreshes it for the requirements of contemporary applications. ARMv8 has faster, more compact code that requires less energy to run, whether one has more than 4GB of RAM or not.
