    Just wanted to add a post and say hello, And also wondered if anyone knows how to work out the growth for each platform (in relation to mobile nations forums) based on the number of members below just would be interested to know.

    so that's 4032 new forum members for Windows in 17 days and approx 2281 IOS users added in the same period, and android added 9723 users.
    I really don't think any correlation can be made

    There are many people who post on all sites.

    A Windows Phone user could own a Mac.

    A Windows desktop user could own an iPhone.

    Someone might have a personal Android phone and an iPhone for work.

    Anyone might have an Xbox, no matter what kind of phone they have.

    Well for all the people who keep writing MSFT off, they have a really nice stealth strategy going for them. I do think that eventually they will have a phone that will knock everyone's socks off...it might be too late for some by then but oh well...

    I like using my 810 and my 830. Though if I I had to rank them it would be 810, 830 then iPod :p


    Sent from my iPod touch using Tapatalk but I prefer my 810 and 830
    I am in this forum only because of my phone. It drives me to know and learn more.

    but that wasn't my question it's more about of the three platforms which has the highest percentage increase on your site over the Last 17 days using those figures, And yes I agree with your statements it's likely anyone has multiple devices even multiple accounts etc etc but I was just interested in finding out. Good luck with reaching 150k posts.

    edited: plus its great that it looks like the Windows Central Forum is statistically doing well.

    I understand what you're saying. It's just that not everyone who posts on a particular site necessarily uses or has an interest in that platform. Case in point : the off-topic forums found on all sites. Some members like the social aspects of the off-topic forums and might participate because they have friends on those sites even though they don't use the platforms those sites are dedicated to. For example, CrsckBerry has a large off-topic forum.

    So I should talk about my Moto Maxx.

    When I first got it, I instantly felt the heft. Make no mistake, folks, this is a heavier phone. But when it is packing a 3900mah battery, I have no complaints. I've got the all black ballistic nylon model - the only option. I like the texture of the nylon - nice feel, good grip. Design is more utilitarian...not as sexy as the Moto X 2014. I do like the grey + red or grey + blue ballistic nylon options that its sister phone - the Droid Turbo has. Just the change in color scheme would make the design more interesting, but oh well.

    Screen is good. QHD AMOLED. Surprisingly, and more to my liking, it isn't as overly saturated as the X 2014. I like more colder colors for my screens, so this is up my alley (not as cold as the Z3's screen). I found the punchy over saturation of the X 2014's screen to be a bit of a turnoff...albeit, manageable one.

    Performance wise, no lag here. AOSP Android + 3GB RAM + 805 processor = very good performance. Camera is OK, serviceably acceptable, not great. Even though there is heft to the phone, I like the screen size at 5.2". Battery gets me through two days mixed usage comfortably. qHD screen is a gas guzzler, along with 5.0.2 anyways. 6.0 should really improve things...even though battery life for me is pretty good.

    Pros:

    Good screen size, huge battery, Qi built in, Quick-Charge built in, internals run great, very good audio quality, splash resistance.

    Cons:

    Design of the capacitive screen buttons, Camera so-so, cannot charge the phone turn off using Qi, Moto's decision to apparently jump from 5.0.2 to 6.0, quiet loud speaker.

    All in all, very satisfied. Makes a good work phone and a great Z3 complement. It just needed a better camera and the IP57 (or IP67) rating and I'd happily park my Z3 permanently. Moto did a nice job here...it was worth my trolling to find one on and off for the past few months.

    That's what I'm running on both Z3 line devices also. Hey, 5.0.2 isn't so bad, but the difference with that and 5.1.1 on the X 2014 was significant enough where I know battery life and performance will be even better on the Maxx.

    By the way, I came home today with midle have because of hectic it was at work with 79%. Now I'm down to 52%...but I streamed Marvel's Contest of Champions via hotspot for 30mins, had a 45 min conversation with the GF and an hour long conversation with one of my dear friends whose birthday is today.

    I can go out the phone down now and know that I have enough charge to get my through tomorrow, even after a taxing evening tonight...

    Quick note: The screen is not a fingerprint magnet like I've seen on most devices. I'm not needing to clean my screen constantly.

    Good luck! I hope you get it soon.

    I could've had mine on Monday, but I altered my shipping details with UPS to pick it up at a UPS Store in my neighborhood, since I wasn't going to be home when the truck arrived.

    I learned something about Amazon. Orders done by Prime members when there are US holidays don't get delayed. Amazon uses UPS instead of USPS, since UPS isn't closed on many of those holidays (like Columbus Day). My original tracking information showed I'd get it delivered on October 12, but I changed it to store pickup, so it got to the store today.
