    I am thinking of trying out the Elephone P8000. The specs are pretty impressive for the price. I think by 2016 HTC, Sony, LG and Moto will struggle quite a bit against these Chinese brands. Also supposedly the Elephone guys are developing a dual boot phone, Android/WP.

    Just got done syncing about 85 songs on the SD card on the Xiaomi Redmi2. Went into the audio settings and then selected the correct headphones. All I can say is WOW! This this an amazing device especially considering what I paid for it:-)

    4.7" size - check
    Dual-SIM unlocked - check
    At least HSPA+ on T-Mobile USA - check (LTE doesn't bother me if I get H+)
    SD card support - check
    Decent battery - check
    Camera - reasonable, semi-check (it is not a Lumia!)

    A perfect backup phone for international travel/really good media player - absolutely!
    Oh and the Mi Audio and Video app allow streaming of a lot of stuff that you would have to pay for over here....so I just opened a Mi account for giggles as well:-)

    Depends on what you want. 99 owns a 830 and has test driven a Zenfone 2. If you put the OS to the side, I'd pick the Zenfone 2 because the hardware overall is better - especially if one is in a situation where they have to carry two phones at the same time constantly.

    Very interesting experience today. 5 year olds getting certificates for graduating from pre-school. I did not get anything remotely similar when I graduated with either of my degrees....times have changed:-)
    Neither did I get anything like that at that age. I did have graduation in middle school, high school and undergrad. I attended the first two because I had to and I skipped the last one because it was too expensive to travel back home for it.

    I got diplomas for high school, college, and university graduation. I did not receive diplomas/certificates or have graduation ceremonies for any other school-related things. I didn't even go to pre-school. Kids started with 1/2 day kindergarten back then, and then attended school all day starting with 1st grade.

    For school we got our diploma via mail. Same for undergraduate degree, except I got to walk....long story....and for graduate school I went and walked all by myself since family was 10K miles away.

    He test drove a 32GB internal + 4 GB RAM model. I can personally state too that if I get that, I'd go for the 4GM RAM models. The 4GB RAM (I've tested out one too), runs really nice.

    Got a friend moving over to the UK from the USA later this year. Can't wait to meet them! Plus I'm hoping we can go to Play Expo together (the partner probably won't be able to make it over from Belgium). And hopefully PAX East next year.
