Why the hell are you guys arguing over car brands on an android dedicated website? :/
I personally wouldn't replace this with a classic analogue watch. With all due respect, a digital watch (or better yet, a smart watch) screams out "nerd".
I believe that flickering issue was fixed in the rehashed first gen Nexus 7's. I know when I bought the OG Nexus 7 on launch, it had the flickering screen at low brightness, and the edges were squeaky. My replacement model had the same issue.
When Asus fixed these problems in their manufacturing process, I bought one just to test and those issues were not present.
Hopefully the 2nd gen doesn't suffer from this problem, but I've had pretty horrible experience with Asus Android tablets...and I've owned quite a bit.
+1 Nice review! I will probably skip out on this though... for ~$10 a month, I'm not willing to make my expensive phone into a billboard.
Plus think about it. It's $10. For me, that's more or less 20 minutes at work.
Another concern would be how much background data the app will be using. It could potentially use 100mb/month, which I would rather have spent browsing things that give me enjoyment.
Eh, food for thought. Interesting post OP!
Motorola isn’t focused on the specs that much but rather on customization…and they are really pushing for the customization. Why couldn’t they design a phone with swappable face plates and battery covers with certain themes (black & red, blue/orange…etc) and material (aluminum/ceramic)? It's completely achievable and would be cheaper to manufacture "blank" phones with a free set theme package. If you get bored, go on their site and order another one.
This way you truly give customers an option of customization. When they realize their fluorescent green Moto X doesn't look that great, they can go order another aesthetic package.
With a removable back, you can swap batteries and add in a microsd slot up to 64 gb.
This phone was a pretty big flop in my opinion considering all the hype it stirred for months.
Haha following the MONTHS of hype, now comes the hate.

Pretty much called it. "Made in USA" translates to "No way in hell it was going to be $350 off-contract without being subsidized by Google". Is anyone actually surprised by this?
Nevertheless, it should not be priced in the same range as the S4, One, Xperia Z. It should be at most $450 unlocked...
I hope the lens are a bit more recessed in the final product. It'll be a shame a nice camera's quality is compromised due to scratches (especially if Sony is going to put the same durability as the Xperia Z).
You still need a wireless connection to use Wallet so on a non-cellular tablet, it would've been difficult to use it anyway. Looking like an idiot comes free :)
I watched that last gif at least 5 times and I can't see how the car moved by itself then stopped unless someone was inside?
A controlled battery test would be nice
Just out of curiosity, does anyone know how much the site sold for? :P

** My bad, accidentally pressed "post comment".
...conversation is stale with a group of "yes"-ers).
My original reply to you was just pointing out the fact that Android has numerous options a user could resort to once he finds the current interface to be boring.
To be honest, my personal experience with using WP8 is limited to a few hours when testing out a friend's Nokia. I just never saw a "killer feature" on that OS or device to make me choose it over a flagship Android phone. If phones weren't so damn expensive, I would definitely want that Nokia Lumia 1020!
Anyway kudos for standing your ground, so here's a internet brownie (+1) :P
PS: I have a MBP and an iPad too, which I don't hide from the people on this site. Everyone has a good enough justification to part with their money lol
Sorry if I came off a bit douchy; finals are a week away so I guess I sounded a bit edgy. I didn't downvote you, as I find that users on this site tend to pull the trigger on the downvote option as soon as they see a different opinion; I personally enjoy seeing people with other opinions (otherwise conversation is st
Android Police does a lot of app reviews but too much of it is focused around games... something I don't find myself doing much on my phone (with the exception of a -very - round of Dragon Fly on the bus).
I would like to see some more focus brought to utility and everyday apps! Apps that anyone could enjoy. Maybe add a must-have list per week with a semi-detailed review for each?
Something I really enjoy is if the AAM staff could actually reach out to some app developers (preferably smaller ones) and have them answer some questions from the community as well? This could happen every second Friday or something. Could be popular or a big flop...but it's an idea :)

1) Bleacher Report - probably the most encompassing and pretty sports app in the Play Store. A lot of good articles on every major sport. Since discovering this app, my knowledge of the NBA has grown in an exponential manner...my GPA however has grown in a negative exponential manner :'(
Haven't used this in a while but it allows you to watch TV shows and movies being streamed by other users. Sometimes glitchy but it's free and no annoying ads! Better than nothing:

In the last section, "Facts About Me", I misread the last two bullets and thought you said "I kissed a girl"...
Anddd now I'm going to cleanse my mind :)

I own the Xperia ZL. I just recently received the 4.2.2 update it really adds so much more usability and performance upgrades. With the time it takes for OEM's to push OTA's and the delay the carrier has for an update timeline, I kind of wish Sony would have made the jump straight Key Lime Pie, considering 4.2.2 to 4.3 is not a very big jump.
Anyway, I am glad Sony came out to announce this! Sony might be better than Samsung in the software upgrade aspect :)
If I remember correctly, Oppo tends to not offer expandable storage...
