    Just brought a Lumia 950 XL and I brought a Honor 5X(Android) phone.

    I couldn't stomach having to use lagdroid(even with a Windows 10 rom) phones and unfortunately I wasn't able to fully talk him into getting a Windows 10 device. So Honor 5X it is but on the plus side he is getting Windows 10 on his device, so I am sort of happy even if he is still using lagdroid.

    Trying to find a reputable buyer for the Xiaomi mi4 was annoying so I bit the bullet and got the 950 XL <3

    Now onto a Mozo case.

    I haven't had a chance to try wear yet but I'm not all that interested in smart watches. I like watches that look classy. I would give it a shot but I don't feel like I need it since for answering texts I would still need my phone because it doesn't understand Slovene quite as good as English ;)
    Good thing for you that the newer upgrades in chips means you can get more lighter, smaller, classier watch like looking desings. As useful for me as I've found Wear to be, the UI still needs some work. I'd tell anyone getting into Wear now to not buy any of the current models unless you're getting a great deal. It's the same thing with the Band 2...the design is nice enough but needs to be streamlined further, especially to reduce the skin irritation.

    Too funny!

    I am actually happy to see one of the WC staff using a windows phone device (I am shocked actually) so I am hoping your experience with the 950 goes well. Now I can actually say I know one of the WC staff actually uses a Windows phone device lol(Which is kind of ironic when you think of it tbh)

    I've been playing with a spare one for awhile and this is pretty much one of the best phones I've used among the last few phones I have had to deal with (iPhone 6 plus, 6P and LG V10).
    Dude, I think this is the umpteenth time... I use a 640 as my main device. I have four Windows 10 laptops and two SP3 devices. I don't have to prove to anyone if I am a Windows user or not....this is a volunteer job and not a paid gig...so I don't consider myself as staff but rather a volunteer.

    Abound Band 2, it would be nice if we could get the MS here at all. But so far only phones are here, no Surface even after 4 generations. Lame move from them.

    This^^^ if you'll notice, none of the other members here (in this thread in particular) talk "smack" about any platform. Here, we appreciate and respect ALL of the big three! We're all still big fans of Windows Phone don't worry! There's nothing wrong with Android.. and quite frankly, it's got a lot more going for it than Windows at the moment to tell you the truth.

    Well I have to write a test in Slovene language and getting the review posted was PITA with Lumia 930. And well, now there is me and 2 other people testing phones out. And one other person wanted 950 so I said no problem. Having said that, maybe I should go with Lumia 950 XL? And well because there are 3 of us now I won't be getting the Galaxy S7 but I will get the G5.
    So should I ask my source for Lumia 950 XL and give WM a shot on a good hardware? :)
    Geez sources ey ;) man when I grow up I want to be just like you lol. ( I'm kidding by the way )

    Morning folks. It's official... I've got a cold - one of the last things someone with recent lung issues wants to deal with. What a pain in this *** this is. Looks like the change in weather has done me in. Some days I just want to reach in, take my lungs out, clean out this mucus and put everything back in. If only it really were so easy...

    Oh man that sucks :/ hope you have a speedy recovery. And rest

    So let's do a write up on a Nexus 5X.

    The good:
    Screen is beautiful. Colours are punchy, 1080p is perfectly enough for 5,2". Didn't expect it to be that good considering it's IPS. Thumbs up from me.
    Build. The plastic is similar to that on Moto G 2014. Phone isn't slippery at all. It's also great size for me, I can easily us it with one hand. Great job LG.
    Speeeed. This thing is fast. Had some force closes at the beginning and it happened that icons took a moment to load but nothing frustrating. Apps open fast, No problems.
    Fingerprint scanner. It's fast, works great, even with a bit wet fingers. I saved same finger 2 times so this maybe helped but anyway, loved it and it's one of the thing I will miss.

    The bad:
    Battery. It's one of the biggest let downs of the phone. It was up to almost 4h SOT today but I was at home on WiFi most of the time. When I was in school it was between 1 and 2 hours. I had to put it on charge everyday some time in the afternoon. It does at least have fast charging so that is a nice bonus but still.
    Next is a speaker. Sound is good but would like it to be a bit louder.

    The awesome.
    So Nexus have bad camera? Wrong, so wrong. Pictures are clear, with enough of detail and most surprising is that it's good also in low light. Even with 12 MP it gives you enough room to zoom into picture. Oh and 120fps video is fun :) As far as I'm concerned camera on this phone is way better than one I had on Lumia 930 or Galaxy S5. Awesome job.

    I'm thinking about rooting my Maxx. Just been doing some work on trying to flash the 6.0.1 soak test to try it out with rooting the phone.

    The prior owner did me a solid by unlocking the bootloader, but there's this weird firmware version that leaves me in some no man's land. My best best is to just take the phone to the GF's and use her machine since mine is almost out of hard drive space. I'm just going to download and see if I can flash it before I leave. I've got TWRP installed so that's good...did a nandroid backup, of course. I'm not trying to go crazy since I'm headed back to the GF's later. If this isn't done in time, I'll finish it next week when I get back.

    Made a boneheaded move...did a Nandroid backup but was so caught up in my lack of PC space I didn't copy the backup off the phone to an SD card first. I flashed some official firmware and everything was wiped, including the backup. Oh well. Maybe it's for the best...
