Poll: IFA is almost upon us, what are you most excited about?

Poll: IFA is almost upon us, what are you most excited about?
With the time left until companies take up to the stages at IFA 2014 in Berlin best counted in hours, the excitement is becoming palpable. And, true enough, if you consider yourself a techie, you likely already know what most manufacturers probably have in store for us, and are also most excited about at least one upcoming product. This certainly applies to the PhoneArena team, but we wanted to probe the community as well.

So which one is it? Many of you will probably say the successor to Samsung's Note line, the Note 4. Others are also likely excited about Sony and its upcoming additions to the Xperia line -- the Z3, the Z3 Compact, and, that's right, the Z3 Tablet Compact. That last one ought to be interesting if you're into Sony design and are planning on picking up a tablet, but don't want a giant slate.

And what about HTC and Qualcomm? Those two seem to have collaborated closely, and have teased that they're on path to announcing the first 64-bit Android handset, the Desire 820, a device that we expect to fall into the upper mid-range category. Huawei is also expected to announce the Ascend Mate 7 phablet, known for its insane battery life, so that one will be pretty interesting, too.

But what about you? What are you most excited about?

Maybe Nokia. But TBH not really anything. At least on the mobile section.

Living in denial, right? Because I bet I ll see you commenting on every Note 4 article hating on it, just like you did on every Samsung phone before. p.s: funny how Sony fans are voting for the Z3 and it's family, just for the sake of lowering the Note 4's vote %. We all know how it will look like (Z, Z1, Z2 DUHHH) and benchmarks showed that it changed nothing regarding the specs.

Dude what the heck man? You hate me. I'm fine with that. I don't care since I don't even know you. And I didn't even vote for Z line I voted for Nokia. Ps. If SS changes the design as expected I won't be hating on it that much. Then almost the only thing to not to like in it is Touchwiz.

I assume that since you have had lots of hate towards me lately. Your delusions about Sony fans being bad seem kinda immature to me though.

You're denied bro, DENIED. Why are you bringing an argument here? He didn't even bash Samsung, yet you got butthurt for nothing. So, you want everyone to vote for the Note 4? You sir, are pathetic. I'm a Sony fan, but I voted for the Ascend Mate 7. So, what you said is BS. You started an argument here, so no matter what you said afterwards, are all BS. Since you posted that pointless comment, you can't be saved. You're denied, DENIED.

Sony's votes are divided into 3 but still can't topple Note 4 when combined. :) Note 4 is 100 votes ahead and still counting.

samsung phones sell in millions but are not that good bro, because i had really bad experiences with note 1 and s4...apple has big brand value and they always offer latest tech except screen resolution(64 bit cpu,saphire display and touch id),thatswhy people buy iphones even at high prices.i am not a apple fan but neither a hater.

And the Samsung fans are the worst ever! Much worse than ifans! They are in the bottom of the line of mindless fanboys! I voted Z3 as I'm keen to see if it has a new design!

45. InspectorGadget80 unregistered

That's why u don't rush and buy a phone just because something is new.

It doesn't really matter since Sprint is the only Carrier that will have it.I'm sure 4 people might get it on contract. Unless you want to buy it outright from Sony.

this is for sure that the note 4 will be the star of the show and for sure will steal the show and this poll as well

Z3C and L830. One of these will be my next phone, if Nokia has waterproofing I am sold.

I don't know about waterproof but....u should get Z3c....smaller, powerful, and premium.

40. akki20892

Get 930 or 830.....only one feature will miss waterproof. On eBay 930 is $550. And I guess 830 will around 500$.

If 830 will have 930 specs it will be must have, coz 4.5 is perfect for me, 5 is too much.
