    So today I decided to stop by the art gallery at school. I wanted to check out what art they had. So here are some pictures I took . These are kids as Young as 5 years old who lived in the middle east where war is prevalent. The gallery was called the lost generation. Sad stuff
    Children caught up in war always have a tough time. Children living in the hood during gang wars experience something similar. Glad you took this exhibit in, Sahib. Stuff like this always helps to remind people there are other realities - some unpleasant - that others are going through.

    Cool. Would love to hear your thoughts. I liked it, but heard it had too much lag..if you've gotten the recent performance updates, that should help, I think. Hardware's same as the G4/X 2015/Lumia 950...sans the extra 1GB of RAM.

    Feels snappy so far but than I came from Moto G which feels awfully slow compared to that.

    Oh.. so I took the case off of my 1520 to clean it, and noticed I'm missing a small piece of the body plastic next to the volume rocker... Have no idea how and when that happened... Or, where the tiny piece of plastic went!
    Whoa o.o that is strange

    I didn't have any idea these kids were experiencing that everyday. It's sad.

    You need to go see the world and do some extensive reading, young man. Lots of people out there are suffering, especially women and children. That's why when that photographer tripped those fleeing Syrian refugees in Europe a few months ago, it triggered such outrage.

    The New York Times has an annual student subscription deal of $52 for the entire year for all their digital content. I'm not sure what your finances are, but that's something to possibly look into as a way of expanding your horizons...

    Nice. I'm curious to see how it runs when you load up on all the apps and data from regular usage...which did you get: a 16GB or 32GB? What color?

    Also, correct me if I'm wrong, but since posting here regularly you've gone from a Lumia 820 to a Moto G 2014 to a Nexus 5X?

    Oh my....
    So I posted I might do a lagdroid challenge with a friend and I am actually considering taking it up. Only reason is because of how the zealots of android try to hype up the OS as being so much better than WP(BS I call) and also because I want to prove him wrong that I can last using an Android phone.

    I am trying to convince him to let me just do an IOS challenge...since IOS is actually a quality OS compared to lagdroid....But eh he wants to be difficult.

    On the flipside, he'll be utilizing WIndows 10 exclusively with my 1520 should we decide to do the swap.

    180 days with Android? Really?

    Someone may need to have me on observation because I may throw the phone or myself in front of a speeding truck....
    I wish he would have said BB10 or even old Symbian.

    Loser has to buy the Winner's flagship phone of choice...For him i'd have to buy whatever SAmsung BS flagship comes out later this year

    and for me it'll likely be him buying a 950 XL or HP Elite X3 if I decide to go bold and use another OEM(highly unlikely).

    So of course I can't lose.

    But I of course haven't accepted the challenge.

    Restrictions:
    1. He has to use All Microsoft Apps on Windows 10(He primarily uses google which for him isn't entirely too difficult.

    2. I cant make Android look like Windows 10 with a launcher. I have to use/accept Android as it is with it is boring/dated icons and looks and feel.

    3. We can carry a secondary phone but it can never have the sim card in it and be used as a primary device(my Fierce XL would be my companion phone)

    4. I have to use Google Apps(Ew) primarily unless school requires Microsoft(Which it will). Which means I'll have to use gmail. Even grosser.[/LIST]

    Oh it's not mine, it's test phone, like S5 and Lumia 930 were a while back. But if I like it I might go for it :)
    It's 32 GB black model.
    And as far as phones are concerned you are right(except Nexus as I said). Maybe I had Nokia C6-01 at the start but probably not.

    Not for a year and a half, I still have Lumia 820 to play with in my drawer but I have been using Moto G since the start of 2015. Sorry but apps are lacking on WP, at least they were back than.

    Lol I want friends like that! Heck id even take up that challenge. Though can you use a google launcher to make it closer to stock android? If I ever went to andriod it would have to be phone with cyanomod, oxygen OS, or stock andriod. I dislike the customization that OEM do to the phone

    Haha we are really good friends.

    I can use android launchers but it would be cheating if i tried to make it windows phone like (well knockoff since Android windows launchers are crap)

    Tbh unless I can get him to agree to IOS I may not take it.

    1. Out of principle. Why would I want to support anything google after how they treat windows users?

    2. I strongly support Microsoft products and plus I wouldn't be able to enjoy Redstone in the coming months.

    3. The Android ui is terrible regardless of stock,oem customization or cyanogen mod. There is just crap and less crap. I truly question people and their thought process who prefer this ui over metro

    And

    4. Google services are inferior to Microsoft services. Having to use Gmail or google drive over outlook and OneDrive is sickening.

    Of course plus side is I could always use Dropbox.i Dont trust google with any of my data.
