    In which case MIA will just get her a new tablet.
    The GF would do that...it's her mom after all...

    It would be a problem if the card went bad and apps needed to be reinstalled.
    Or I could just leave her with an SD card...she was making out just fine with her N7 2012 and its fixed storage.

    If the Zenpad gets the Marshmallow update, I don't recommend using the microSD card as adoptable storage. That means that the card cannot be used with any other device.
    When I finally get 6.0 for the Z3 the first thing I'm doing is converting the SD card to adaptable storage.

    I don't swap SD cards so it's a no brainer for me. 😸

    So this weekend and pretty much all time off will be about the house.

    Did I mention I bought a 'renovators delight'?

    I'll take before and after pics and post them when done.

    I'm just happy to be at this point. It's been a long drag. Now everything is going to go mental...

    That's fine. I don't play intensive games or do anything that's overly demanding that if it takes one or two milliseconds more my life will end. 😜

    Sometimes i wonder if it just me only these days but i feel very saturated with mobile tech. I'm sure OEMs are working hard to find news ways to keep their hands in our pockets, but it feels like the large scale days of innovation are over.

    If i were buying a phone today, the options are so vast that you really cannot **** up your choice if you have an inkling of an idea as to what you want. I felt like this for 2014 as well.

    As curious as i about how 2016 will shake out, there's a sense of fatigue that has set in for me.

    So, if i were buying tech this year, what would i get? Ideas here are to balance value for money, camera, battery life and overall performance.

    Phone: LG G4 (runner up, Lumia 950)

    Budget phone: Moto G (Runners up: Idol 3/Zenphone 2)

    Wearable: MSFT Band 2 (runner up, Zenwatch 2)

    Tablet: Asus Zenpad S 8.0 (runner up, none)

    Streaming device: Shield TV (Runner up, Chromecast)

    I'll go with fatigue but for me I feel it's also an age thing. I've loved tech for a large portion of my life and in some ways I'm sort of over it being so invasive.

    I'm slightly disappointed with technology at this moment in time. As much as I like where MS is heading it's still a slow drag and the other two haven't done much lately to add any satisfaction.

    I feel we are at stagnation point in mobile tech. The only thing really left is having one device for everything at this moment in time. Unfortunately that seems a way off still with the slow creep of CPU/RAM implementation and all the other limiting factors.

    So we wait for some huge change to come which is probably sitting on some shelf at the moment...

    If i were upgrading out of boredom, what would i get from 2015?

    Priv to replace my Moto Maxx.
    950 to replace my Z3.
    Band 2 to replace my wearables.
    Zenpad S to replace my Z3 Tablet Compact.
    Shield TV to replace my Fire Stick.

    On this list what would i actually do? The Shield TV only, of course...

    I'll probably pass on tech again this year. I might, and this is a big one, might get a new phone.

    Agreed. Maybe it is age on my end too. I used to enjoy flashing ROMs and such too, but now, I'd just rather my stuff works. I still would root but I'm not getting as many benefits as back in the old days.

    Like you, I'm not pleased as to how invasive things are getting. Still, at least with the current stable i have, i can maintain some control and avoid upgrading for a while.

    I'd love to see what you upgrade to from the Z3, if you make the move. A Shield TV is in my future. I'd rather get the Pro version, but there are other pressing things to figure out right now...

    I was, still am, tempted by LG G Flex 2. It's bargain at the moment for 250. But will probably wait for next year tech, I quite like S6 because of good camera. Oh and Moto Style us finally 400 in Europe. :)

    I've owned a G flex 2, actually. I enjoyed it and almost kept it as my compliment to my Z3 until i saw a Maxx for a deal i couldn't refuse. 5.1.1 has made a world of a difference with this phone. It has the same camera as the G3 and flies. Good phone. Underrated and should get 6.0.

    If you can tolerate the LG skin or just use a good launcher, it is a very good phone to own and use.

    I use Nova anyway so it doesn't bother me, I last year I have kind of fallen out of this phone world. Don't care as much for all the phones, updates I used to. Lot of work at school has taken its toll.

    So you've joined the club I see? Life will do that to you really...

    It's why I'm at a point where I like reading the information these days but when I make purchases, I weight out pros and cons and longevity for usage.

    Yeah I still like reading but I also used to post more on our Slovene Android forum but don't do that anymore. I used to know any phone much more into detail, I read every review that came up on GSMArena. Now I only look more into detail phones that I'm interested to buy. Lack of innovation, as you pointed out, in last year or so probably has something to do with it too :)

    I have realized that I like pure Android better than any skin out there. I like good battery life and a nice camera and a 5" screen size. I have really tried hard to like iOS but its a no go. I am quite happy with the current lineup.
