Obed, drinking the Apple Kool Aid
By Jamie Rakes | 09 May 2014
Obed could not be more wrong if he tried. Every year Apple introduces it's new iOS, with "new" features, and I've had those "new" features on my android (Nexus) for at least a year. Apple is failing to innovate, and failing miserably. Soon they will be trumpeting bigger screens, NFC and wireless charging as ground breaking technology that they developed. Apple isn't innovating, they are playing catch up, and doing it poorly. Apple sheep will never learn.

good phone..but still feels somethings missing
By Mukul Anand | 31 May 2014
he samsung galaxy s5 has the fastest auto focus with 0.3 secs time and the MP COUNT is 16 MP u must be thinking that the sony xperia z2 has a 20.7 mp camera and the lumia 1020 has 41 mp but wait the lumia 1020 is not better than even the iphone 5s's 8 mp camera the 20.7 MP camera of Z2 is great but has some issues like overheating and some audio video syncing issues especially lip syncing issues when u use that phone for video recording of 2k videos the phone overheats within 2 mins during 2k recording and u will need to shut it down the phone has 2 gb of ram which is not enough for a flagship . Yeah it will recieve latest updates but that too a bit late but its is simply not future proof as it is not having 4g lte and 3gb of RAM . It is very poor in terms of processor although it is an octa core processor but it is not a snapdragon processor . The snapdragons are reserved for foreign countries as they have 4g . Its having the samsung's latest touchwiz ui and latest gestures . If u have that money u can definitely buy it . The worst part for gamers is that it has a MALI gpu which is outdated verdict: go for xperia z2 or htc m8 at this price
