you mean note 3? the note 2 has been out here for a while and it feels like a massive flop compared to the note 1. its just a bigger S3 with a pen. the screen size ratio is horrible.

i'm personally waiting for note 3 or equivalent 5.5-6" 1080p screen tablet with a real stylus to upgrade from my note 1

I'll keep an eye on Motorola's phones in the future.

Samsung is a great company, but their phones are very ugly.
Motorola on another side have beautiful phones, best battery life, acceptable hardware (hoping to improve on that part), and now that Google bought them, the updates will come blazing fast.
HTC disappointed me. Not that anything is wrong with my One X (or my previous HTC Desire HD). It's a great phone, it's just that I don't want to buy a high end phone from HTC just to see another one take the top spot 4 months later, and then wait for ages to get a software update.

What exactly is fail with Telstra? It has 99% coverage over all of Australia, some of the fastest 4G speeds in the OECD and has a good range of phones. Is it just that you can't afford their plans?

I travel regularly on the Hume Highway between Melbourne and Canberra and Telstra is the only network that can give me 3G (usually 6-8 Mbps) all the way through. I get $600 worth of calls and 1.5GB of data with unlimited texts for $59/month. I think that's a pretty good deal.

Ever dealt with Telstra customer "service"?

Use telstra bigpond broadband?

Telstra are absolutely disgusting. The only reason they have the best coverage is because they have a monopoly on the hardware, which we can thank the federal government for.

In regards to their bigpond internet, my best mate who lives in Cairns had to use dialup for 5 months because Telstra were too lazy to send out a technician to repair something at the exchange to allow them to use broadband. Only after hassling their local MP for 5 months did they FINALLY get Telstra off their lazy backside to go out and fix the issue. That is absolutely abyssmal and terrible treatment of paying customers.

Needless to say, he switched ISP about 2 months later when the connection went down again and has refused to pay them as the service was inadequate. Telstra tried to hassle them to pay them but again, they went to their local MP and got him to step in.

If you want to learn how NOT to run your business, just look at Telstra. Absolutely terrible and I wouldn't go with them even if someone had a gun to my head

Unfortunately, in Perth at least, if you want any decent mobile coverage, Telstra is your only choice. Also, they've significantly changed their mobile plans + their customer service IS actually pretty good. Though I use a business mobile plan, so that could explain it.

Of course they do have their pain in the ass issues - but in terms of actual service reliability and functionality, for both broadband and mobile service, they are top notch. Diss Telstra all you like guys, but they're the backbone of Australian communications (for now, anyway).

Forget about who said this, just look at the facts.

Google acquired moto, and along with it I think it was said that google did not want to do much major changes, so the product pipeline for the next 18 months (as of purchase date) will go as planned.

Now, what happens after that 18 months of already planned products...well your guess is as good as mine. But it doesn't seem to crazy to assume google will use their new hardware partner and create something really really cool (at least in their eyes) and it might be a tablet, it might be a phone.

Makes sense doesn't it? I mean, it would be stupid not to. I know, I know, google was really after the patents but since they have a manufacture...don't you think they will use it? Samsung has already shown that it OWNS the android hardware market...why not offer a product to compete with them?

Side note, HTC just doesn't seem to get it. They constantly change the name of their lineup, learn from samsung. You need one product line, with an easy to remember name. Not a bunch of lines depending on who the carrier is. It's rumored that the HTC M7 will be called the HTC One. Imagine the average joe, looking at the HTC One and the One x and wondering...hmmm, which one is newer.

As much as you think this would be true, it's not. Carriers will always be the sayer of all things update related when it comes to Android phones until Google puts their foot down in a similar fashion to Apple.
