PhoneArena Q&A Ep 3: iPad 5's screen, Lumia 1520, Nexus 5's design, updates for the Nexus 4 and more

It's time for another Q&A episode, and boy do we have some sizzling-hot topics to discuss this time! We've gotten questions about the iPad 5's screen, the Lumia 1520's screen, the Nexus 5's design, Xperia Z1's camera and so on and so forth. Sure, information about most of these things isn't really abundant, but we can still share a thing or two.

Be sure to post your questions below for next time!

So, I clicked on this article because from the thumbnail on the home page, Ray looks like Eminem. Good Q&A btw.

In the leaked picture of the nexus 5 from the FCC it seemed to have a black rectangle thing on the back. do you think this is a fingerprint scanner and if not what is it for?

He was. Now it's John V., primarily due to his biased reviews.

I think I may have to agree here. John V. was always VERY unbiased but lately ESPECIALLY on his Apple iPhone 5c review he has been very questionable. +1

I concur. Ray S redeemed himself with his improved reviewsstarting late last year, and when he traded in his iphail for a Lumia 720. John V apparently has become the new old-Ray S.

Phonearena's reviews are faaaar better and unbiased than others. I once saw a c-net review of the Lumia 1020 (by Molly, I guess. Not sure about her name.) At the end of the review, she said the Apple iphone 5 had the best camera in any smartphone!! (And I was like, Oh man, I don't want to live in this planet anymore...)

Yeah. She didn't even know the difference between shutter speed and the time the camera app took to load.. I stopped watching cnet videos after that!! Stuck with PA, Verge, Engadget and PocketNow.. These guys do a far better job!

C-NET are literally retarded. They compared the Nokia Lumia 520 ($150 Australian Dollars) to the iPhone 5C ($739 Aus Dollars) ... Huh.

Ignore that question, here's the question I'd like answered: What do you think of Microsoft acquiring Nokia? Is it better for Windows Phone?

Will iPad 5 increase its screen resolution?? Or feature a finger print scanner??? and what do you think about Lumia 1520?? Does it stand against its competitors like note 3 , Xperia ultra?? and what will gdr3 update bring other than hardware improvements??? will nexus 5 feature more premium design? Like aluminum back etc?? and do you think more than one nexus to introduce this year, like a high end version and an affordable version???

2nd question: Why do i have a message like this below and i cannot comment using IE 10 in my windows 8 laptop. Its weird because i have to use chrome (which i really hate) and post comments there. What's wrong PA? "You are using an old version Internet Explorer which no longer supports. Please update to Internet Explorer 8 or better, Chrome or Firefox."

I have had that problem a lot recently as well. Along with IE 10 not being able to go to certain websites because adobe no longer works on it.

Make sure Compatibility Mode is turned off. F12 and click where it says "IE 10 Comparability Mode" click the drop down option for "IE 10". I'm unable to click the "thumbs up" and "reply" on my Lumia 925 in IE. Why PA refuses to serve the largest technological user base on the planet astounds me
