Z1 refresh (not Z2) - MWC. S5 - MWC or its own event.

I see you when your phone's display broke with the first drop.
I think edge to edge display is not good at all.

all phones can be destroyed when you do intentionally dropped it! you should also be careful not to hit the corners.
in some drop test video they dot not show the distance when they dropped lg g2. and obviously the corners hit the concrete floor.
have you watch the dropped test for G flex? its survived.

What can we expect from the Android homescreen? In 2013 and early 2014 we've already seen HTC, Google, and Samsung change their launchers with a Blinkfeed-ed Sense 5, Google Experience Launcher, and Magazine UX, respectively.
Will the players with more traditional "pages of icons and widgets," such as LG and Sony, start releasing their own differentiated takes on how an Android launcher should work?

I would guess they would jump on that as well, it only makes sense. Win is hammering home the tile interface and those other UI's are trying to up to date live feeds as well instead of static icons.
With windows on tabs/laptops/desktops all having these active tiles it only makes sense. After all the icons on the smartphone has mimic'd the desktop of ios and windows.
I expect sony to release something along the lines of a ps4 type get up in design possibly, make sense and easy imo. as for LG, probably something along their web os that would mimic along to their TV's os.

Do you think we will see phones like the Z1 Compact from other manufacturers in the foreseeable future?

Is Htc One's Camera really that bad? I never used it in real life but I'm planing to buy one soon. Now I am using Xperia S as my daily Driver and Camera is the most importat for me and I need a camera that capture good photos in low-light/Night.
So is it good idea to get HTC one?

Do you think Samsung will continue increasing the amount of software features on its devices? Can we see a refreshed version of Touchwiz with the GS5?

Will Nokia be producing a 5/5.2" phone with 20MP camera? If they are, why not use the 41MP sensor from 1020? They didn't use the big sensor in 1520 because the "phone" was already big enough, and if they are still not going to use it in smaller phones, then what exactly is Nokia's plan?

Which is better in terms of display? IGZO vs IPS vs Super AMOLED vs Triluminos. Also consider battery life. Thanks.
