    That's a downgrade camera wise but an improvement in battery life for sure. And Sonynis now slowly rolling out the 5.1.1 update, which looks good so far...

    I haven't got the update yet...

    I'm trying to convince the wife on the Z3 still. If the compact came in purple she'd buy it in an instant. She likes the Z3 purple enough though prefers a darker purple.

    She's confused why more companies don't do blue and purple phones.

    Honestly I'd buy a blue phone though I like black or a nice silver as well. Gun metal grey would be cool.

    Ignorance, there is a cure.

    Well today was a long day . Went to my great grandmas funeral. Saw some of my relatives I've never met ( we have a really big family ) ate food with the family. Yeah busy day for me

    Sorry to hear that. Good to meet the extended family though. Strange how most families get together at funerals and weddings...

    I'm still trying to investigate my great grandmother's past here in the UK. As far as we can tell she lived in Hastings and that's where she met my grandfather who was in WW1.

    She's technically a war bride. They married fairly young.

    Not sure of anything else before that.

    Man I am so tempted to go pick up a Surface 3 at the AT&T store for $0 down and $30 a month added to my phone bill... Hmmm the 2GB of RAM is what's holding me back though.

    Not an obsession. It is the truth. Sony's camera is good, don't get me wrong - and Rue can attest to it. But, I'd take the 930 and 1520 camera over it any day of the week. That's the reason why as much as I'm enjoying the usefulness of Android Wear, if I'm going to a function where I need to take quality pictures, I'd take my Citizen's Eco Drive and my 930...and leave Android at home.

    The Z3 camera takes time to get to know it to produce excellent shots. You're better off using Manual mode, as SA mode can be a little bit or miss.

    MSFT working on a launcher for Android...very interesting. While I'm satisfied with the Sony launcher, if I had a stock device like a Moto X, I'd use it.

    What I'm waiting for is Cortana with Android Wear support. That's something I'd use a ton...

    I hate asus launcher. Actually I'm curious about the real android UI? Every phone has their own customize UI but did they have the original one?

    Yes Nexus devices have original Android UI. However you can install Google Launcher or Nova launcher to experience it.

    This Arrow Launcher looks interesting so far. Gonna run with it on my Z3 for a while. It reminds me of the MSFT lovkscreen I used for a while which was good too, but buggy at times.

    The first thing I like about it is that it has the icon sizes to my liking. I like the three pane setup as these are panes I could use...apps, recent contacts, reminders. Love the wallpapers.

    Not a fan of the vertical scrolling listing for the apps. I'd take the traditional view and drop the labels of the apps for a cleaner look (personal taste) or take the Z launcher approach.

    So far, I'd take the three pane look of Arrow Launcher + the Z launcher's on screen writing to search and cleaner vertical scrolling main app set up and never use another Launcher again. Still, gonna try out this MSFT launcher for the week.
