Hopefully LG figured out how to get more battery life this time. The G3 battery life was pretty meh. Not sure I like that big seam in the leather on the back. I prefer Motorola’s leather style, though I wonder if this means the LG will have thicker and more durable leather with better adhesion (the lift on the recent Moto X’s back was pretty bad on some units). Anyway, I’m intrigued but not yet sold.
I commend Sony for keeping the same basic design for the Xperia Z4. Sony’s Xperia phones are beautiful — better looking than the competition’s. Why change a great thing just for the sake of change?
I hope the Xperia Z4 is available on Sprint. If it’s not I’ll have to settle for the Samsung Galaxy 6, even though it is coyote ugly.

I have a hard time believing in images of the supposed Z4 when it still has the Walkman app which has already been rebranded to Music. The Xperia Z4 was already in the pipeline. But phones can be cancelled or delayed for changes. Sony will want to innovate with the Z4, and therefore it will not be good at all if all they release is yet another iteration of the existing Z3.
I am really confused by HTC. If the HTC One M9+ comes out with optical image stabilization and the camera is actually decent, why the heck did they not just scrap the M9? Seriously, the one thing that HTC had to get right on the M9 was the camera.
Apparently the LG G4 will also end up with no MicroSD card slot,
just like the Samsung Galaxy S6. what is wrong with the South Koreans? First Samsung and now LG. I guess the days are numbered for the MicroSD cards, at least on Android phones.
I don’t really get the point of the HTC One E9 and the M9+ together. They seem very similar. It would be a lot better if the E9 came with MT6795 and the 20MP sensor that is necessary to capture 1080p@480fps; and a 1080p screen (so that the GPU can easily handle it). That, together with the BoomSound speakers, would make this phone a multimedia beast!
So the new HTC One M9 Plus has two home buttons. That looks really out of place. They should think about maybe placing it on the back.
According to HTC’s Jason Mackenzie, the HTC One M9 will start becoming available on April 10. Prove that the April launch date is due to the 810 processor. HTC will probably release the M9 in the US with Lollipop 5.1 to include full VoLTE capability.
Hope to hear something official before the HTC One M9 release/availability/order date of April 10, 2015. I have the HTC one max, and I’ve been waiting for this phone. Everything looks great, but 5.2 screen? So is this thing going to have a physical and a software home button?
Dear Sony, please don’t let Verizon screw up the Xperia Z4 like they did the Z3.
I like it, it looks just that bit cleaner, but I have a Z3 so i’m not in the market for it. The exposed USB port is great if it keeps the waterproof rating. Personally I would miss the dock connector, but I would hope that they have put in wireless charging to make up for it.
