    Can charge a completely drained phone in 2 hours with this method.
    That's about the same charging time for my Maxx with a Quick charge used...not bad, but some of the newer stuff does this in 90 mins...

    I don't think it's all that bad, but like you mentioned a while back, maybe once they ditch the home button (if Jobs had his way), they'd be able to appease the bezelphobes lol
    Apple as their design language, so I guess that. Still when they made the move to a much larger screen, I still don't understand why you couldn't just tweaked the design in such a way that the bezels are still small enough. Anything screen to bezel ratio wise of 70%+ is good in my book. Apple I believe is below that. You really see it show up in the 5.5" iPhone. In contrast, you can argue the Note 5 is smaller but yet with a bigger screen...

    About G5, maybe we are just weird for liking what other people hate.
    Nope, we like what we like and sometimes it goes against the grain where you see beauty in unlikely places. Nothing wrong with that...

    I'm on break for a little bit. Gonna go in the kitchen shortly and pull together this week's meals:

    1) Homemade cream cheese spread (breakfast) - neufchtel cream cheese + fresh green onions + seasoning salt + black pepper + homemade pepper sauce.

    2) "Fried chicken" (baked) drumsticks, which will be pulled for a gyro comprising of the drumsticks meat, chopped fresh tomatoes, sauted mushrooms and vegan cheese stuffed in a pita bread pocket.

    3) Adzkui bean spaghetti with ground beef meatballs, steamed broccoli and a tomato puree sauce.

    They improved the ratio with the 5.5" Plus phones over the regular 6.

    Look at the chart on this page. If you squint your eyes, they all pretty much look the same except for the 5S (lower right) having the lowest, (there's a lot of black there!) and the Sharp phones (upper left) having the highest.

    Awesome MIA! I've been wanting to come up for a while now, and check out that new WTC building.. Maybe when I come up, you could be my guide? It'd probably be a dual purpose trip to also go visit my father up in MA out on the Cape.

    This spot has a nice stretch of greenery. It is a section of Battery Park, which requires some $$$ to live there. Only issue I had with this shot is there is supposed to be the Hudson river in the top right hand corner but that gets blown out.

    Funny enough, I've owned 5 phones on this list (Nexus 5, OnePlus One, Xperia Z3, G Flex 2, Lumia 1520), am in the process of moving another (Moto Maxx - Droid Turbo in the US on Verizon), own another in the G4, and have test driven the Asus Zenfone 2.

    While Apple has made strides, when they get over the 70% marker, I'll be impressed (they're close though).

    Cool. As long as my schedule isn't too much of a circus, I'm down with touching base if you get into town. Least I can do is let you pick my brain and suggest some places. 99 also knows a few spots too, since he's the Johnny Cash ("I've Been Everywhere") of the thread...
