    I think Startac was my first phone too. (I slept since then so not sure) I was looking for the smallest phone I could find at the time so it would be easy to sneak to work. how times change, years later I was looking for the largest phone I could find and like and found the original note just as it was being released.

    Observation, my only ehh is.... the phone is thin. For its size, I expected more actual screen real estate. That is kind of a head scratcher for me. The price was great....
    I'd like more screen. I don't need to see less these days. Maybe these phones are designed for a younger crowd. I'm not exactly "Jitterbug" phase but .....

    That has been a common complaint by some. With the fingerprint scanner on the front bottom, the phone is taller and not true full screen. But they couldn't put it on the back, or else we could not use Moto Mods. The Z3 is rumored to have the fingerprint scanner on the side where your power button is, and the power button the left side.

    Other than that, how's it treating you? Are you liking the phone?

    Yep, Lenovo bought them from Google a few years ago.

    That video supports all the other rumors so far.

    I think it is better than it gets/got credit for. I filter what I hear and read because I cleave to my old belief that I trust my own observations over what I am told to believe (real popular in school) Our society is replete with institutions based on thought control - the hobbiest world including smartphones included.
    I have no doubt "on the test bench" the races are run and won for the column/blog writers but in real life (for me) this is quite a good device.
    The battery life is bordering on the great side of ridiculous, I've charged it once so far since I got it and it still had 40% when I did that. Now I am still at 94% and I charged it yesterday morning. Compared to my Droid Turbo (bigger battery, see stats are misleading to the neophyte) that is amazing. I used to charge to 100% before bed and then shut all functions off and wake up with my Droid at 84% - just sitting all night doing nothing.
    Thin, Light, responsive - nice phone.

    Good deal. My wife & daughter feel the same, that it's a great phone. I agree that it gets a bad rap because the battery is smaller than the first year. But yet it still gets great battery life. Enjoy!
