    It seems to have a 2400mah battery, which is bigger than on the 920, which I can make last 3 days already.
    You seemed convinced. Go for it. :)

    Not the size of the battery that counts. I could nuke my Z Ultra in 4 hours and it had the same chip set and a 3020mah battery just by playing asphalt 8 for an extended stretch. I've noticed that once I start to push my1520, the battery runs like my Z Ultra did.

    Reports are that it runs the camera hard when using it. You may still get the same usage out of it as you do with your 920.

    Far from it. I've got to do some driving tonight but I'm going to check out some of the latest Android offerings tonight and see how WP compares in daily usage, and make a decision based on that.

    My biggest issue is the reasoning for the study in the first place. There's a lot of messed up people who believe that people should be punished for promiscuity. That's the main reason why parents are opting out of the HPV. There are way too many people who think HIV should be used as a deterrent to sex along with all the STDs. They think it's apt punishment. That's my issue here.

    Add in that most parents don't discuss sex with their kids and lots oppose sex education in schools and it's no wonder there's so much ignorance on the subject. It's been proven that education in sex reduces teen pregnancy rates and STDs.

    I sometimes wonder when we'll be able to grow up some time and stop realising that sex isn't an issue, isn't a problem, it's a natural part of life.

    I could go on to say what I really feel, which I've skipped, but I'm sure MIA knows who the people are I refer to in this post as being the 'problem'.
    4 out of every 5 sexually US adults will be exposed to some type of HPV in their lifetime. There are over 60 HPV types. The HPV vaccine protects against types 6,11,16 & 18 that causes genital warts and cervical cancer.

    I agree with you. Some of the teens in my office who are in our teen parenting program are more responsible about their health and well-being than some adults I know who are more set in their careers. All I know is that of I have a kid, when the time comes I'll lay the law out on the topic of sex. Truth be told, if some parents parented well from jump about other things and built a great relationship with the kids, then talking about sex is easy.

    The Sony Z3 is comparable to the 930, as is the 1+1 more or less. What others would you consider? Bearing in mind the battery life and the camera are the two most important factors for me.

    Both the Z3 and the 1+1 are bigger than the L930, with the 1+1 being the biggest at 5.5"

    Android Central has a list of their favourites but it kind of comes down to how you feel personally about those brands.

    Depends on your budget. Camera and battery life I'd recommend adding the Z2 to that list also, since specs wise the One plus One and the Z2 are identical chipset and RAM wise. If the skin isn't too much of an issue for you, I'd add the LG G3 into the mix also, as it is a smaller 5.5" screen with a pretty good camera.

    I thought about the LG G3 but when they had issues with the camera and dragged their feet about fixing it I was a bit put off by that.

    There's lots of good Androids now and with decent cameras. It's only going to get more difficult for MS to compete on camera alone.

    Well it's almost time for me to leave work and start my vacation. I'm looking forward to it! :D

    I'll hopefully be able to post some pics here (check Instagram for more). It's a relaxing holiday but I will be out.

    In case I don't make it on here Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

    Well I'm having a problem with my 920, there's something wrong with the usb port at the bottom. I can't keep the phone connected to a computer long enough to sync let alone charge or put my music on.

    I might suddenly be in the market for a new device.
    Looking for WP or are you another one leaving WP? :)

    Galaxy S5 has good camera and battery, camera is not as good as on L930 but it's faster. Battery on the other hand is better on S5, I used it more than 930 and ended day without any problem on single charge, on Lumia I had to be quite careful to not be left with dead battery on the end of the day.

    S5 has the most useless high end camera in the dark of a 2014 flagship. That's why it wasn't on the recommended list for Muessig. If he's looking at a Samsung, I'd tell him a Note 3 or Note 4.

    Still, the camera in the G3 overall I'd take more than the camera on the S5. S5 is slightly better in daylight though. I get that you may have been perturbed during Chregu's issue with the camera, but I can make the G3 is still impressive with the battery life and overall footprint.

    Lol. You seriously don't understand that the Note line is more popular than the S line these days.

    im not going to say that my views are correct or anything but I see more S5 than the note series. the only time Ive seen one was the last day of school for me where I saw a guy studying on his note.
