Fortunately for Apple, most of their customers would read this and think "but does an Android work with iTunes?" "NF-what?"

To be fair on the build quality front, the iPhone generations that have used plastics have felt very well built to hold. Plastic has become almost like a dirty word when it comes to devices such as phones and tablets, but all it takes is a little bit of thought and plastic can be used to make something that's durable, nice to hold, and good looking. Though when writing that the main thing I was thinking of was the Nexus 7.

Exactly. Plastic is not a bad material for phones by any means.

Apple is technologically behind Samsung. That's why Apple needs to buy the majority of its parts from Samsung.

And that's why they make a big point of suing them so nobody in the general public notices lachen.gif

The whole no sdcard slot killed it for me. While cloud storage sounds great, it's waiting for larger files to load.

I picked up the Note II last week and I already have 5GB taken up by apps/games. I still have some games I've not installed which will add another 2-3 GB. I flash ROM's a lot and do back ups in recovery which takes almost 3GB a backup. Downloading ROM's are pretty large files now as well. I have a couple of ROMS's downloaded on to my sdcard which take about 970MB each. Titanium Backup is another 2GB. I could have that on the cloud, but I don't want to have to wait each time I want to flash to get my apps back. Now add some HD videos and some pics. It fills up quick.

Nexus 4 should have been 32GB or 64GB variants.

While I only had my Galaxy S III for a couple of months before giving it to my girlfriend. I don't miss it one bit since I got the Note II nor do I think about any other phone out right now or coming out.

Talking of cloud storage, I'm currently uploading all my music to Google. It appeared to have no issues recognising my FLAC, which is pretty awesome. Streaming tests so far have been pretty good but use a lot of data.

And the Nexus 4 launches today. Who's ordered one?

You could but it wouldn't make it true.

Apparently it's sold out in the UK.

It sold out from the Google Play Store in 30 minutes but some of the networks should have the phones in their stores.
