I actually am not disappointed in any of the specs. Some people may be a bit weary of the 1080p screen. I feel that 1080p screens are perfectly fine as long as the panel itself is quite nice and bright. A 1080p screen would also have better battery life - I would take that over a higher res screen any day.

Yes agreed - I don't personally believe that there is any use case that justifies having a 4K screen in a 5.5inch device!!!

It seems that they were aiming for a price point and had to make cuts to get to it.

I don't use NFC to much but it's great to pair/connect devices.
No LTE is kind of a big thing however, sure 3g will be fine but you can tell the difference when you are doing things on mobile data.
I also like micro USB charging, I can go almost anywhere and someone around has a charger.  Changing to C with only 1 or 2 cables around could be a bit hard.

For now I think i will keep with my sony z3 compact as 5.1.1 is rolling out at the moment, will see what the nexus range is in november.

I've never wanted a phone this badly. I feel like an Apple Fanboy right now and I've never had this feeling before.

It is scaring me. Now I see why people go mad at those Apple events.

Honestly, help me, I need it and you need one too, take this URL and bump me up in the queue and I'll be forever grateful.

Note 5 is like 2x the price (or maybe 3x) so remember that :)

I was looking at getting the next note but for bang-for-buck and general sexyness the Oneplus 2 has me.

I use a OnePlus One and love it. I was all ready for this device until I saw the 4G frequencies. It would be a backward step with no 4G. A real downer really. I wonder if it is something to do with the dual Sim....




My views (except when I am looking out their windows) are not those of my employer.
