    My phone got stolen at a bar last weekend :cuss:

    Why they would steal a 4-year old smartphone is beyond me, but people suck, what else is new. I'm looking forward to the new speed and features, but I'm sure I'm going to miss my physical QWERTY keyboard. It's the only reason why I held on to it for so long.

    I went for the Sony Z3 Compact in black. It'll arrive in 3 weeks or so. It has the same high-end specs as the Samsung S5 and such, but it's around the same size as the iPhone 5.

    stereo speakers on a phone is a gimmick.

    I applaud anything that increases the volume.

    I won't listen to sound from my phone unless I'm wearing headphones. And not earplugs. Headphones. Or external speakers.

    I agree with you, but loud speakers are handy no matter what.

    You'll forget all about the keypad after a day or so. I held onto my blackberry for way too long for the same reason. In hindsight I feel like an idiot.

    Nice, good on Sony to put premium fixings in a smaller phone, since the trend the past few years among Android manufacturers has been to go big with screen size and internal hardware and leave the smaller sizes with lesser CPU's and cameras.

    Nigga needs a phone.

    They do pay me, they're just behind. I'm keeping my eyes open for other opportunities, and I'm sending my resume around, but no hit yet.

    The economy still kinda sucks, also over here in Europe-land.
    Exactly. The huge phones look cool, but they're not very practical for me. I don't have huge hands.
