Smartphone screens have now officially broken the 1080p barrier. Several days ago, a Chinese company called Vivo announced the Vivo Xplay 3S, which packs a 6-inch screen with a resolution of 2560x1440 pixels. Awesome, right?

Windows Phone 8 is great❕ Can't wait for WP 8.1 on my 1520.. This phone is bad ass, and to imagine that it will only get better in about 5 short months❕ Amazing job on the Hardware, Software, updates, and apps this year Microsoft, and Nokia❕.. The complete combination of these two companies, and the Lumia devices that are to come is exciting❕
