I saw that the other day.  Moto X is a really underrated phone.  Specs don't really matter with it, they really optimized it well.  The only reason I got rid of mine was I'm not a fan of AMOLED display but it was a sweet phone.  This new one deserves a look for sure.

Yeah, my plan was to get a Gal Note 3 or an iPhone Impractically Huge in December. (My LG Intuition is well past its sell-by date, and even a factory reset has not improved its performance.) That wacky secondary touch screen is making me lean toward the iPhone Impractically Huge.

So bigger phones, NFC payments/card wallet, and wearable tech have me thinking that it's safe to say that Apple's days as a tech world disrupter are over. Like it's awesome for people with iPhones or wanting iPhones but it's not really anything groundbreaking anymore.

My ex is an Apple fanboy, to an insanely annoying degree. After the last 10 Apple press conferences I would always get a phone call within seconds of the announcements about how awesome the new iProduct was, and how Apple was so much better than every Android phone...  Oh and that things like the Samsung Note was ridiculously big and no one would want a phone that big.

 

Haven't heard a peep from him yet.

I went to iPhone for a while when the 4s came out. I enjoyed it but knew I didn't want that type of experience. One where you're locked in to what they are and no customization or freedom. But at the time android was still a bit buggy and I really liked the fact that apple made such good hardware and that the hardware and software were made for each other.

I upgraded to the 5 also but made the permanent switch away from apple when the nexus 4 came out. I'm kind of a nut with phones and have tried them all including windows phones. If you are not in a contract and are looking for a new phone it's my opinion that there is no reason to consider iPhone. For Christ's sake your nude selfies aren't even safe.

For me, a lot of it is inertia because I owned a tablet nearly 3 years before I owned a smartphone. I am tired of having an Android phone and an apple tablet that don't play together, and I have a LOT more iOS purchases I would lose by buying an Asus or whatever tab than vice versa. Still, got nearly 4 months to think about it so we shall see how the next GalNote shakes out (I am really not prepared to consider a phone without a screen in the 5" range due to my visual impairment)

The whole fucking reason I went iPhone is because I don't want to carry around a goddamn etch-a-sketch sized thing in my...well hand I guess since it sure s fuck won't fit in my pocket.  Size was literally the deciding factor for not going Samsung or HTC or whatever was hot last year.

 

Fucking fuck.  My Macbook air is the most perfect computer I've ever used, so I'd rather just stay all Apple....but FUCKING FUCK!  THE ONE FUCKING THING!!!!!

Picked up a LG Optimus F3 to replace a phone I bricked that belonged to my wife.

It's not a step up from her last phone screen size, only 4 inches, but the processor is a step up.

Lots of comments online talking about space issues because of limited internal memory, but after I got it rooted and Link2SD set up, she has more than enough space.

It's not the latest greatest thing out there, but for a late adopter like me it was a steal for $40 at Best Buy.

Feel dumb for not realizing previously that the Note Edge is not the only incarnation of the Note 4. So the a note is still in play for my next comically large smartphone along with the iPhone. I hear people say nice things about the G3, but over the last 8 months I have gone from satisfied with the intuition to lukewarm to hating all it's dumb little quirks and shit, so I am gunshy about getting a new one from them.

It's funny.  The main reason I didn't consider an IPhone is how small they were.

 

Now I feel fairly comfortable with Android/am somewhat locked into their ecosystem, so even though now there are Iphones that aren't comically tiny, it's too late.
