    If I had such recent hardware I would of course not think of switching either. :)

    The 1520 is enormous, I think already the G3 is huge: Visual Phone Size Comparison
    The 1520 is damn huge, but i can actually use it one handed, for basic stuff of course. But I'm thinking Microsoft will have some good hardware out by October-December. :) And i am thinking, as i've mentioned before getting some Blackberry hardware, but most likely not until 2016. :)

    I found the G2 to look far better than the G3, Maybe I just haven't had a proper look into the G3

    They look pretty much the same to me...

    Daniel Rubino doesn't....

    I honestly have no idea what Microsoft's plans are for the fall. According to a leaked internal letter first reported at the Verge, Microsoft is announcing "other high-end products…very soon." The problem is, no one knows if they are talking about Windows Phone, tablets or something else. If they are phones – which I am not convinced – we do not have any details on what those devices possess for specifications, or if they meet the rank of 'flagship' (as opposed to mid-range).

    I'm great, I'm still happy using WP, just curious, but why are you guys thinking about leaving for a bit? :)

    Is it because of what Microsoft is doing to WP?
    For me, at this stage, WP just isn't cutting it. I'm willing to wait as I've already stated further back as there's nothing of interest for me on any platform. I'm giving WP until the new year.

    From the information we have so far about WP is that MS plans to concentrate on the lower end. There's no new phones coming out this year, as far as we know. The OS is still immature and missing features I want. The devs haven't really done much with their apps still. They tend to be second rate. I went through this experience already with Symbian. I'm a little over it at this stage. WP still is fine but I'm getting bored now.

    Saw a person with a 925 today while travelling by metro :) beautiful phone 📱. The capacitive keys are so bright though, you can see them from a distance. Classic white and metal.... Class 1 phone :) Lets see what the 935 brings to the table.

    There's no word on that phone or any other phone for that matter. We have no idea what the plans are or what the names will be. I personally hope they change their naming scheme and reduce their phone models.

    That's stupid. Low end maybe drive sales but high-end drives interest. 930 is just not the thing that would persuade many new buyers. I hope they are not that stupid in Redmond.

    Morning folks...without reading all the previous posts I see that Chregu is leaning towards the M8. He's such a HTC man...lol...nothing wrong with that though. One of my coworkers is like that. Her last 3 models were the Rezound, 8X, and M7.

    im still deciding to either get the tmobile one or the unbranded one. im mostly on 2g 90% of the time so Ill be ok with the unbraded one. though when there is coverage I want to use LTE or at least fast HSPA+. for sure the 925 is on my list
    I have both, so I can tell you the difference. In a high coverage area like NYC, the international model is still a bit slower because it doesn't have the AWS brands. You'll still get H+ speeds where if you're not a speed junkie can be just fine. I like the unbranded model I have because I've got cyan already.

    It's a principle thing in this case. If you can get a cheap t-mobile one, go for it and stay enrolled in the developer preview and use that for as long as the 925 is eligible. Otherwise, the unbranded one gives you good enough speeds and the freedom to know that you're not held by the balls by t-mobile for official updates.

    Well, I don't know entirely what you did but you simply just use less yeast so it doesn't rise as much. You still need to let it rise if you want a nice crust though. Adding some olive oil also helps keep the dough down and makes it softer.

    Another note, mix the salt and flour together then add the yeast and water. Even if you use fast acting yeast, putting it in the water first doesn't hurt.

    I just read this review - Which smartphone? LG G3 vs HTC One (M8) | Stuff

    Just on the camera alone I think I'd go with the G3. The ability to swap out batteries and the SD card are simply a bonus. Both have the SD card though. I'm indifferent to the quality screen on the G3. So it's mostly the camera that would make be go that direction.
    It boils down to what you want the camera to do and how you plan to use the pictures afterwards. M8 is a typical HTC camera - good enough for causal shots and posting to social sites like WPCentral. Chregu has gotten some nice shots from his 8X in the past and should be able to get similar shots from a M8. Now if you're the this pe to crop and do post production, this is where HTC's camera isn't as good. The G3 gives you more to work with. Personally, I like the Sense skin better as even though the Optimus UI has gone with the flatter look, it is still kinda busy looking. That's why I said if I got a G3, I'd change the launcher instantly. I like the screen because for my eyes I like the cooler look because it is easier for me to read in the dark and for longer periods. I love the buttons on the back because it makes you realize that on an Android phone you really don't use those buttons as much.

    Hopefully Chre gets a chance to see the screen for himself. Even though at this point I wouldn't buy one, simply because I'm already committed to my Z Ultra (that's the only reason), if I was in the market for 1 phone, I'd get this and maybe keep my 925. The hardware really, really nice and impressed me.

    yes it was hard!
    I mixed yeast and sugar with warm water and then mixed the flour with salt and then mixed both of them together :/

    For me a decent camera is what I want. I don't need something too flashy as I don't take that many pictures but I want good quality. I want the option of what I do with them afterwards. I won't be printing them in most cases but I still want something of decent quality. That's where the M8 falls down for me.

    On style alone I'd get the M8 though. It's a nice looking phone. If it had the better camera it would be my top consideration at this stage of things but since I'm looking early next year maybe something better will come along. :)
