    Sorry to be a pendant but you’ve mentioned it a couple of times now – I’m pretty sure the Galaxy Note 3 & 4 have 5.7″ screens so I’d be guessing that the Note 5 will get the bump to 6″, and the Galaxy S6 Plus will fit that 5.7″ niche just luvverly.

    What are the information security risks with ‘generic’ Chinese Android devices? Are they any different to buying a Huawei or Xiaomi phone? Should I be worried about my personal data being accessed by a third party, or is it the same risk as the NSA/GCHQ reading my texts?

    RE: Moto X. I’ve wound up owning both the 2013 and 2014 editions of the Moto X and quite honestly, I’ve been pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoy using them, even a year later. Due to the minimal skinning (especially compared to previous Motorola abominations), they run quite smoothly on the admittedly older hardware, and the little extras that Moto has built in with their voice recognition and smarts and whatnot are really polished and nice.

    That being said, they’re somewhat boring, and yes, the camera is not what I would call stellar. I’m really interested to see what they do with the third generation, especially with the MotoMaker ordering system. Today, they only use it for the casing of the phone, but it’s not outlandish to think they would allow you to beef up the internals, Dell style. For instance, a $20 surcharge to add wireless charging, etc.

    At least they’re doing their own thing and not chasing after someone else.

      I highly doubt Motorola will fix their camera issues, but like you said, at least they got the customization thing going for them. From a software perspective alone, I’d pick a Moto over anything else, regardless of how good the Galaxy S6 camera is. But hey, I’m on an iPhone 6 Plus now, and I spent over $900 on this thing, so I’m going to use it until the damn FCC label falls off.
