    I think I'll buy a Z3... :P

    I thought about the Nexus but it was too big for me but I can see MIA liking it.

    I agree totally that the L830 could have been so much more. Oh well.

    I decided to charge my phone but I could have easily waited until tomorrow. Due to my low usage throughout the day I can easily 3-4 days on it. :)

    What difference from the L920!
    I'd rock it with Android Wear only, because of the size. Also, Nexus have had ****ty battery life historically so I expect more of the same here. Outside of the Note line, no one is really utilizing the big screens well. I won't buy an N6 outright, but I may day as I always do...wait a year and maybe think about trying it out.

    You are stupid, WP doesn't need high specs to run good 😠
    See what I did there ;) I agree with you, L830 could have been a great competitor to Z3 Compact with a better processor. Now it's only another midranger, although with a good camera.
    Anyway, I kind of like Nexus after what I read and would be interested to buy it when price drops. Biggest pro's are Amoled and Motorola's way of "glance" which would certainly be missed with a new phone. Only downside is that I would have to buy it from UK or Germany.
    That argument is only good when you use it to make jokes like that...

    But seriously the 830 is as solid a package out there. Two things cripple it from true mass appeal - price and processor.

    I tried to post this earlier, but it got wiped out...so here goes.

    I stopped to check out the N6, Z3, and 830 before going to internship today. Here are my impressions:

    I still like the Z3 and in a perfect world, i'd get a cheap N5 as a back up and use a z3 as my primary. I'm too broke to do that right now.

    N6:
    - like the screen
    - not put off by the size or design
    - feels like a larger moto x, which is ok by me
    - feels slower than it usually is, because of the encryption issues
    - really wished that there was a split screen to take advantage of the real estate

    I wouldn't get one now, but I am not unopposed to owning one for a trial run at some point.

    830:

    - I can see why Sahib likes it
    - it is a nice phone if you don't want it to do much
    - like it fit in hand and design a lot

    MSFT missed an opportunity here. Wished that they took a page from Sony and just dropped a s800 chip in there and called it a day by selling this thing at $375 unlocked with a US LTE model with AWS and the international one they pushed through their carrier partners in droves.
    How about a Z3 and N5 for the OPO and some cash LOL!!

    That was the other turn off of the Nexus 6 for me though I wasn't sure what the battery was like and the last thing I wanted was another crappy experience. :/

    The Z3 is the perfect size for me. Not too big and not too small. :)

    I just changed the keyboard over the the Google one and it's way better than the stock Sony one. :)

    Now I need to put the camera through it's paces. :D

    Hey SD I've seen a couple of those Android commercials on TV here!

    I also took this picture while in London on the bus. It's the 3D Max cinema on a roundabout next to Waterloo Station.

    Don't blame you there. If I were looking for a nice device to keep an eye out for WP, I'd use this - sans the missing Hey Cortana option. Otherwise, I'll pass on it.

    Took you long enough to do that. The Sony keyboard is semi less than useless. The best thing I ever did was drop the leaked 5.0 keyboard on my Z Ultra. From then on, it was such a joy to type on...

    Oh, I forgot to mention that I played with the Desire Eye too when I went looking at the 830. Interesting piece of kit. Would I use it? No...but it is a nice feel in hand though, at least for me.

    Wow, nice. Looks like they are giving an Android quite big push at the moment.
    I also played with my friend's Nexus 5 with Lollipop and I must say I really like it. It works good although app drawer seems bit slow, probably because of animations.
