A friend of mine said they break easily and the spare parts sold here are fakes.. heard good stuff about it tho.

Think I'll take the first advise and wait it out for the Nexus 5, though - for 300-350$ it's surely the best value for money out there once it's out, and should have everything I need.

Don't waste your time on jealously; sometimes you're ahead, sometimes you're behind.

The race is long, and in the end - it's only with yourself.

I still say the technology is being rolled out ahead of its time. Apart from the shortcomings such as as battery life, there's also the network coverage and the cost of mobile data traffic. Here in Holland not even the recently rolled out 4G network gives you good coverage and a contract with a 4GB data limit costs as much as 65 EUR a month. While watching just a single sports event will take roughly 1 GB of data traffic. Of course the battery will likely be empty before the final whistle is blown, but as it is there's simply no way to enjoy the full features that these phones are capable of.

I doubt it'll work out that way though, as I read it's due out late October? although some reports also said on the 14th so who knows.

It'll be sold here likely at the start of 2014, and the price will prolly be significantly higher so I might not wait that long - but let's see, hopefully it does come out on the 14th.. I heard the price is gonna be dirt cheap too for a new phone, around 300-350$ in the states.
If you don't mind Chinese stuff, look up xiaomi M3. If you do mind, stick with Nexus 4/5 as it has frequent updates.

What do you mean break, physically?

Strange, cause HTC is much better built that Samsung and Nexus.
I had both of them and HTC is built of a better material.

but how to get it in Holland or Belgium? or even Germany


Lex Immers - Pace & power. Holland's #1 box to box player

Feyenoord forum - the place to talk about this phenomenon

Ronald Koeman "Oranje kan Immers goed gebruiken"

Fred Rutten "Feyenoord heeft Immers nodig"

Van Marwijk over Lex Immers: 'Stille kracht van Feyenoord'

John de Wolf “Dat is nou precies de aanjager, het ’etterbakkie’ in het veld dat Feyenoord in dit soort wedstrijden nodig heeft"

You need a bank account, and physical address, then leave the rest to me.

I can also show you a direct way of buying it, but it's good to make 20 bucks out of you for demoting me p

I'll testify to this...

HTC One is one hell of a phone.

So is LG! I've had LGs that fell out of my pocket and hit cement and they had no problem... not even a scuff. I think the LG G2 may be a little more fragile than my previous LGs, but it's one I might get. Still looks like a solid as heck phone. I love the G2's battery life.. killer.

LG and HTC are both steps above Samsung and Google phones IMHO.

I got the Lenovo K900 back in August, and i am happy about it. i would have bought the MI3 had it been released earlier.

I will buy Xiaomi Hongmi in the next few days for my mom, though.

I bought a white 32gb. Now I'm hearing though that it won't work on Verizon.

I guess I'll sell it to some Russian on ebay for a bit of profit then...

Since the Nexus 4 is good enough I'm skipping for the moment being.

things i look at most in phones

1. camera quality
2. chip strength (how well it can emulate playstation 1 games and stuff)
3. battery time
4. wifi strength

i'm really happy with the galaxy s4 now but i was tempted by the xperia z since i'm a bit of a sony pony. the camera reviews for the s4 were better though so i went with samsung for the first time.. the iphone is fookin great too, but it doesn't offer the same video game apps or 5 inch screen that i prefer.

btw if there's any way i can run the firefox os on my s4 and keep my video game apps and camera quality i would do it asap... mozilla

Samsung Galaxy S6 is announced.

Discuss.

Don't lament the treachery of time;
long have dogs danced over the carcasses of lions.

Don't suppose that their dancing raises them above their masters;
for dogs remain dogs, and lions remain lions.

Insult me as you wish;
For my silence to the depraved is a response.

It's not that I have no response, but;
A lion does not reply to a dog.
