    What do you appreciate about Android, N_LaRUE?
    I noticed you ask a lot of questions. :P

    In simple terms - apps and good functionality within them. Also being able to attach things to emails easily.

    I haven't got to the wearables thing yet. I know my wife wanted something at one point but WP didn't support it so she kind of gave up on the idea. Maybe once WP does she may look into it again. There's only Fitbit at the moment right?
    For WP, yes. But you've got an Android tablet...so you could look into the following...

    As you know my wearable is synced to my Z Ultra. I don't carry that around daily and sync the data when I go home. I believe many wearables give you that options where you can work out and pull the data off later. That's certainly one choice.

    FitBit Flex and their other stuff from what I've seen get good reviews. I wanted something a bit more casual so I went with the Sony offering. Plus I wasn't going to pay over $100 for it. Now the GF is thinking about wearable tech so I may get her a Gear Fit since she like Samsung (wants to go from her S4 to maybe a Note 5 next year when she's upgrade eligible) for her birthday in a few weeks. She works out daily so it may be nice to give her something else to pair with her S4 or her Nexus 7 (2013).

    Well if I want something like a fit bit I would use it on the 830 if it was already out . Obviously I wouldn't buy because I wouldn't be able to use it on my 810. Once I'm out of college I wouldn't get it because I wouldn't have a need for it
    I initially wanted to get a Kreyos Smartwatch as a multi purpose, cross platform device for my fitness. But they took so long to launch it I was better off finding a lower cost and more flexible option...hence the SWR 10.

    I'm not entirely sure of the infrastructure they have in place here but my guess would be that WP isn't on it simply because there's no demand or it doesn't have a compatible system for it. I think our IT did look into things at one point and found the WP would be too much of a pain so went with iOS.

    It's when I hear stories like that it's what makes me wonder what MS was thinking when they brought WP8 out. I know they were trying to get the iPhone crowd but ignoring your biggest current customers was a huge mistake.
    WP is an afterthought here. We just developed an app for teens to market our clinic's services and of course they launched the iOS one first and the Android version is in the works. Cannot blame them really.

    I'm really curious where he got to. :/

    Seems rather odd that he just disappeared. :/

    I have to say I find it rather amusing what people ask questions about and what their concerns are with future products on this site. I guess it happens on all technology sites but I still find it amusing all the same. :P

    No surprises there. With the Chinese Govt looking to push out its own OS and kick MSFT to the curb, it makes sense for ZTE, Huawei and Xiaomi to do the same. The OS may be Linux based so that's better for them to pursue.

    It's another loss for MSFT because it'll be harder to make headway in China.

    If you could do these...

    Throw some mp3s on it and talk about how good the audio has when using headphones.

    Mess with the EQ settings to say if that's any good.

    Shoot a short video clip and talk about the audio, how good it manages shaking hands.

    My video, unfortunately only in 720p because I didn't check settings :(. The OIS works good, in my opinion but audio could be better. And s said in description, I'm sorry for my English.



    Mp3 through headphones is good but I'm no audiophile.

    About EQ(that's equalizer right?), it can add functionality of you know what you are doing, I'm not one of them unfortunately.

    Thanks. Much appreciated. Your English is fine. I like the area where you shot it...the roads look great and I love the greenery of the surrounding areas.

    If this had HDR mode it would be killer. Still, just from the video it will be a solid upgrade for me from my 925. Thanks again. The 930 is now firmly on my list.

    Thanks. I just feel I have this stupid accent which is the case with most people from southern Europe.
    And I still have no idea why the default setting for shooting video is 720p. I mean, what year is it 😖 ?
    And about landscape, this is where I live with all pluses and minuses. ;) it was middle age town, in 14 TV century and it probably has less residents than a big block of flats in NYC :D.
