    The X10 felt good (the slender form is nice) but in general didn't seem overly large. It is bigger than what I'm used to but it didn't seem that big.

    I know the X10+ is closer to the X1 but that wasn't around either....

    Overall though I don't think I'll have an issue. I have fairly large hands and the one handed mode appears to be good.
    Now, we know if the wife gets one her color choice. The bigger question is: will you be staying away from the black?

    Unfortunately the bundle is black only here. Including the headphones.

    I'm at a shipping centre and looked at the X10+. It's fine.

    My wife won't get one is too big for her. She's a bit stuck. Possibly the XZ2.

    The zx2 compact is kinda "old" but that's the best suggestion I have unless a Pixel 3a will work better for her.

    I'm curious about the new phone journeys so please keep us updated.

    I agree with Libra about the XZ2C. But the regular XZ2 isn't a bad option either.

    Let us know what the wife chooses. She can always get a Pixel 3 for S&G, but somehow, I don't see her doing that.

    The tones that the G cam brings out is always interesting to see but I like the comparison. Please keep them coming.

    So nearly a week later, I like the iPod touch. I haven't used it for music really with the headphone jack yet. Using it as a dedicated device works for me and it feels nice. I don't have to charge it often, it's super light and easy to carry around.

    For me, that looks like using it to read ebooks (while it's small, it's fine, it just means that I have more pages to read), using it for some alarms (I tried it out for some but I'm transitioning to all alarms now) and podcasts along with some music.

    I can understand why people have said that they like having the iPad and an Android phone. Of course it's not equal to it but it's kinda the best of both for those who do not care about iMessage. The limitations of iOS works out great for my use case.

    Charging is slow, but I have an iPad charger so that helps. It's been good to just read when I want to, versus starting to read and then going into my email, and social media. It was odd at first, but towards the end of the week, it started to feel relaxing.

    Though I'm no Apple fan I wouldn't complain if I had a computer that powerful at work. My current PC is a bit under powered.

    It seems like a heavy investment for a company to make. Hopefully they pay well....

    Are you still at the same place or have you changed companies?
    Yeah still at the same place but doing only graphic design now which is a big plus. They could pay more but at least the work is varied.

    Sony Xperia 1 in the flagship list.

    I find it odd that it's not in the camera list.

    I did mean compact...

    She's not sure what to do and our outing at the shopping mall didn't help at all.

    I keep pointing her to the Pixel 3 but she doesn't like it. I suggested the 10e but didn't like it either.

    She really wants a Nokia but thinks the 9 is too big. Then if she can't have a Nokia then it's Sony and there's only the XZ2C...

    So she's struggling.

    As for colour. She likes a deep mid purple if it's available otherwise she likes silver.

    She wants a good camera which is important. I'm hesitant about the XZ2C.

    I should mention we didn't see any of the phones she's and I are interested in.

    No Nokia 9, Xperia 1 or XZ2C.

    Buying blind is annoying.

    As for me I'm probably going to order the Xperia 1 today or tomorrow.

    Just wish it had other colour options but it doesn't. Oh well.

    Not sure about the headphones either. My wife isn't that keen on the gesture functions and she prefers a different colour as well

    So we'll see.

    I usually miss getting shots like this when I fly...
    The airlines here still ask us to switch off the phone during take-off/landings... Although I sneak in a couple once a while!!

    Unfortunately all of the Nokia's with decent cameras are too big. The Nokia 8 sirocco is the only one that isn't.

    It sounds like she'll have to choose the one that bothers her the least because you shared all of the options with her. Everything else is really tall.

    If it helps, Samsung has changed things with One UI. It's really good. It's much better than what used to be.

    If she never takes any photos in low light, the zx2c should be okay. For me, I had to download open camera for better results.
