    So I went looking at phones again...

    I like the G4. Last year's G3 impressed the hell out of me, and LG made the G4 better. I could see a scenario using one as a Swiss Army knife type daily driver, especially with either the black, white or sky blue leather backs.

    I saw the S6Edge +. Big, very light. Otherwise, typical Samsung. Looks nice.

    I saw the Note 5. The GF will like it for sure. Lighter than I thought. Design looks nice, but I prefer Sony's Omnibalance, and even the iPhone 4 look and feel more. Otherwise, typical Samsung.

    And yet...I kept casting my eyes on the G Flex 2, and longing for the Moto Maxx even more. Maybe it's because the G4 feels like a more refined Z3. In other words, it doesn't Improve on the Z3 much to justify the price tag. The camera, chipset and removable back are the improvements. Screen is a wash in my eyes...so are the battery sizes, microSD, and UI. The Z3 can take nice pictures but I have to learn it a bit better.

    Now, if the G4 is at the right price ($370) of course I buy it. To me, the G Flex 2 is different because of the design and screen. The Moto Maxx has the stuff I want - big battery, Qi, light UI, Moto add-ons.

    So...I'm going to wait. For now. I'd like a Moto Maxx, but not at a crazy price. If I cannot get one, it's either a G4 or G Flex 2.

    Not sure what to make of the L950/XL. I do agree they look slightly cheap and plastic. Hard to go by a render on how they generally look and feel. Nor the weight.

    I've never been a fan of the camera bulge either.

    I have to agree that I was hoping for something a bit more slick looking. Maybe their Intel phones will be the 'premium phone' people want. More waiting....

    Thanks!

    The problem is that it stopped charging when it's off. Yesterday it caught up with the battery. It's now in a chicken and egg thing, where it needs to be on to charge, but won't turn on because there's not enough charge.

    Morning folks.

    It ain't about how looks, its more about how it runs and the price at this point. If MSFT misses on pricing, they're ****ed...

    Agree but having a nice phone helps as well. You want to have something that attracts people and these are decidedly dull and cheap looking.

    The price is definitely going to matter on these. I don't see anyone wanting to pay premium on them.

    Of course exclusive contracts will keep many people away anyway. :P

    If they make a surface phone, that's the stupidest thing they could do...and I wouldn't be surprised if they use the polycarb in these and make them ugly and use the industrial metal design for the Surface phone line, then they won't make a dime.

    Been there, done that.

    All jokes aside, it depends on what the space are and how pocketable they make it.

    At 6" the phone tends to get too wide. I think 5.7" is the sweet spot. This coming from someone who has sampled the following large devices:
    OnePlus One, iPhone 6+, Samsung Note II, Xiaomi Mi Note Pro, LG G3 and Nexus 6. Of all these devices, the LG, OPO and Xiaomi felt the best in hand. The worst was Nexus 6 - too wide at least for my hands, followed closely by the iPhone 6+ - really big bezels...

    Cityman or 950 XL =$499
    Talkman or 950 = $429

    Should offer them at those prices, unlocked from Microsoftstore.com.
    They should be able to sell 'dem apples then...
