    Ah back roads they might be scary if your car breaks down but they are useful ...at least for me
    Nah.. I'm the only scary thing on these back roads lol... especially considering I keep a Taurus PT-92 in the glove box. And if my car breaks down.. I always have my tools in the trunk as well. (remember, I'm a car guy... :P)

    Except for whenever it is being a gas guzzler in the battery department.

    I've heard that, but I have the 1520 with the 3400 mAh battery. Never had any issues.. Every night when I get home, it always has at least 30-40% left and I think I'm a heavy user.

    Actually, since I got the iPad, I've been doing a lot less "gaming" on the 1520.. Which has greatly improved my battery longevity. I could probably go two full days on a charge now.

    The battery life on the iPad Air 2 is phenomenal btw! I was on that thing all day Monday (my day off) playing all sorts of games and such.. And it lasted all day long.

    Just for GI, the iPad Air 2 has a 7340mAh battery

    That's smaller than the previous iPad Air with an 8600mAh battery, but Apple improved efficiency with the new A8X processor in the iPad Air 2 where it gets the same battery life as the previous version. They also scaled the battery down in order to achieve the thinness of the new model at 6.1mm

    Man, I hope this upcoming Windows 10 insider preview for phones isn't as "rough around the edges" as the latest 9926 PC build. It's going to be installed on my daily driver 1520 either way..

    At least I'm pretty sure I won't have to worry about missing display drivers.

    Starting Q4 of last year, my Xperia V has exhibited what many other folks experienced, that is random power off.

    With a SIM card it's a guarantee to happen, without one, it survives some basic use such as Facebook, Twitter, etc. Since it's out of warranty, I might be paying an arm, or two arms to have this fixed. And I've seen some posts in the Sony Support forum that for some folks, the replacement exhibited the same thing, so it'a a futile exercise.

    Therefore, I'm tempted to upgrade this thing to KitKat using the Tsubasa ROM. Maybe, just maybe, a miracle will happen.

    I think ima hold off with the preview for phones until I read all the threads about this

    I've owned a N5, Z Ultra, 1520 and a 930. The common theme is that they all are SD800 phones. While the 1520 has the biggest battery, I'd still get slightly less mileage on it than I did on the 1+1, which had the slightly smaller screen on a newer chip set with a similar sized battery.

    To me, it's still a gas guzzler. I have to baby my 930 to get to a day and a half. As in like really not use it.

    all I know is that the SD800 works well for the 1520 because of the battery but not so much on the 930 with heavy use
