    I just finished the review of the Z3 Compact. On the whole it sounds good. However, the 429.95 price tag seems a bit high at this stage. The Z3 at 549.95 is way too expensive.

    Since I'm in now hurry I hope to see these prices come down some. I am still giving MS a chance to pull their finger out before I decide to move. I noticed on the release of the L830 in India a lot of people seem to be unhappy about the price and there's some people of course sticking up for the phone.

    The price here for the L830 is 305 which is not bad I guess.
    Try Clove or Handtec prices seem to be cheaper there. But then I suspect that VAT is driving the price up for you.

    Yeah VAT sucks. Clove is a bit cheaper on the Z3 but on the Z3 compact the price is pretty good. For 50 more you get a phone that makes the L830 look expensive indeed.

    The Handtec prices are similar to Clove.

    I was just about to say that VAT is probably the issue. If I didn't get the OPO for my friend I probably would have early adopted the Z3 Compact, as it is same price to start out I paid for my Z Ultra in February. That means the price should settle nicely. I'm used to crappy battery life as is so I can hold out for a little bit with the N5.

    It is interesting how has humans we can adapt to situations easily. For instance, because I've gotten in the habit of using different screen sizes, my eyes can jump from using the Z Ultra to the N5 to the 925 without that initial shock.

    Having learned how to one hand the Z Ultra, anything smaller, even the 1520, I can now use one handed pretty well. It helps to have big mitts, but still it is interesting...

    Get a case as well. And I would say, get everything sorted out before you start using it as a daily driver. Also did you run a Speed test? Hopefully you'll get LTE on the bus as you get closer to school.

    How's it to use a bigger screen? Have you gotten any compliments with the 830 yet?

    I think the N5 is about as big as I'll go so even the iPhone 6 is an almost no no for me☺ I think the 830 and Z3C are sized correctly.

    Rue, thus for you...I took this one when I went with the GF, her mom and her nieces in mid August for one her niece's birthday outing. I have the finished product in my house...I wish the paint brushes they gave us was better. We went to an arts and craft place. The one I took the GF to has better quality in terms of the setup, but this lace has a wider variety of stuff you can make (including glass things).

    Yes, Sahib, that's my version of the Asian lucky cat...

    No I think you should keep it as before. :P There seems to be about at least four of us that fit in that range on here.

    Here is a review for the 830. Sahib can you confirm your impressions if they match the reviewers feedback or not?

    The iPhone 6 is a no for you simply because it is Apple, not the screen size...
