Said everyone and their mother until it was released. Then it was elegant and well built.

Samsung's Note 5 back is itself a copy of Xiaomi Mi Note Pro.... here everyone copies everyone to certain extent.

I recall when the iPhoen 6 design was first leaked, all the fanbois were like; Apple would never release anything that ugly with those ugly antenna bands.
As soon as they come out, everyone ran out an bought 75M in one quarter. I guess being bigger was more important than how ugly it was.
Well built? Not when it bends in the pocket. Just saying!
They all are just hypocrites.
Samsung is the new premium kid on the block I guess.
I had to take my cover off an look at my Note 5. It looks like they bought a bunch of Note 5's and changed the insides.
What would be funny is if this was actually Samsung selling the Note 5 under a fake OEM name for more sales...lol

What the heck is an "iPhoen"?

Only techbloggers say its elegant and well built. Bad reviews mean no invites to next years Apple events.
No invites means no reviews. No reviews mean no traffic to their techblogs.
It's a cruel world.
The iphone6 is an ugly phone.

$90?? Compare it to Apple Pencil! One is pointy other is not ;) LOL!
5. KRISTIJANJE (Posts: 48; Member since: 16 Feb 2015)
Hahahahaha. Apple sells pencils that cost more than this.
25. TechieXP1969 (limited) (Posts: 10115; Member since: 25 Sep 2013)
Hahahaha. You have to be stupid to ever pay $99 for a pencil.
The WACOM options are better, offering as much as 2049 levels of pressure and they dont cost $99.
Thank god not all consumers are stupid. Of course I think paying 6 figures for a car is stupid too.
Oh and before you bash me about the cars? Exotics have no benefits whatsoever. When they break they cost more to fix. Being faster has no benefits in a country that has speed limits. Its just bragging rights...lol

Ha, well, yes but I wouldn't like to contribute to more children working for less than $5 a day to support their family...

oh...do you know how they sync up all those phones to play a video like that? That is a very impressive feat...isnt it?

Chinese are the ones who really popularized the Android to the masses. by offering low priced good phones.
Android is popular just because of chinese. or else iOS, Windows Mobile, Blackberry or Symbian would be leading the smartphone OS industry.

For $90 bucks for those looks and specs? I would get one for fun. I doubt it will look as good as it does in those pictures though. Even the Nexus 6P you can tell that the aluminum isnt as finished as nicely as other high end phones.
