    Because I really want to take MIA's advice to my head, I have ordered a Sony Xperia X Performance. It helps that it is on sale and it has really similar dimensions to the Pixel (heavier though). I know that it would be a downgrade probably in the camera department, but hopefully not as much.

    I would hide behind the chronic switcher label I put on myself BUT this time, it's really about battery life. I'll like to see if it's really good like a lot of these reviews have said. Battery life is important to me. The Pixel makes the cut but sometimes I wish that it was a little bit more.
    An X Performance? I think you may be disappointed in the battery on that one...

    If the Mi note 2 wasn't such value for money, I'd have gotten a Key One. Enjoyed my Bold 9700 and Storm 9550 especially, so a Key One would have been a no frills work device.

    Yep. I have heard that it's something about how the software manages the smaller battery that makes for better battery life. Your thoughts in the Android thread made me realize that battery life is important to me. It's nice to have a great camera but a solid camera is good enough for me.

    Looking forward to it, even though my cc is crying.

    I'm the opposite, I need a stellar camera. Since I carry two phones, battery life is not an issue for me.

    Nice! I love the idea of the KeyOne and I think it's beautiful. From what I'm reading and your experience, you hit the jackpot with the Mi Note 2.

    Hi guys, so preparations are coming on nicely with the house and wedding. We've had a stay contact for the house so were getting there now. Plenty still to do on the wedding but it seems a crazy amount of preparation for something that will last less than 12 hours for the main celebrations.



    Also I officially start my new job role next week.
    Congratulations and good luck!

    I can get that, you take some amazing pictures and you do it often.

    The only regular action my camera gets is my monthly selfie (and when I'm in a relationship). Maybe when I do things like go to concerts and the occasional random thing. My friends are the one who takes the group photos and such, I never volunteer my phone xd

    Thank you, me too. I want to be settled like you are. At the moment, it's either that or the Pixel or I do something weird.

    It took alot longer than I wanted to settle, so there's nothing sexy about that process.

    Two reviews out today. One at The Verge and the other one by MKBHD and in both comparisons the Pixel came out ahead overall. Even though I am quite happy with the S8, I am not giving up my Pixel because - camera ๐Ÿ“ท

    Speaking of patented moments, the plaque for my latest patent arrived today. In the process of filing a few more in the next couple of weeks.

    Yeah the Pixel is something else. Whoa.

    So about the s8, how's it going so far?

    So my weird ideas are the following:

    -Sell the Pixel and use the SE instead
    -Get a iPhone 7 in good condition for a nice price
    -Get a RED one
    -Get a battery case for said iPhone 7

    If I did the iPhone 7 thing, I can't keep that and the Pixel. Weird for me generally but probably not too weird.

    I learned that with the Pixel, the connectivity matters (especially at work) so I'll rather get a phone with similar connections(?) to it.

    My vote would be to dump the SE and get a used 7 with a battery case.
