+Patrick Campanale you're right. The iPhone 6 ripped off Samsung. All you have to do is look at the Samsung ATIV S.

It has been 4 years since Google created its only tablet specific UI and I wish they stuck with that platform. The abandoning of a stock tablet UI has forced me to use only 7-8 inch tablets.

My first tablet was the Transformer Prime and given it's faults, it still had a superior design when it come to navigating the UI. Having your notifications, quick setting and navigation button at the bottom of the screen made using the device so much simpler. I never had to changing how I was holding the device like I do with my Shield Tablet or G Pad.

I often argued to iPad fans that all they were given was a blown up version of iOS on a lager screen. Google made me eat a lot of crow when they abandoned the tablet UI for a uniformed experience, basically copying what Apple did with their iPads.

I wish OEMs would recognize the potential of a tablet specific UI and go back to it.

That's my main complaint with Android. Stock doesn't make use of extra screen real estate at all on bigger screens. Funnily enough this is one of the things touchwiz actually excels at.

The experience I have gotten with my HTC One M7 has been so positive that the M9 will be my next phone. I will admit that I am underwhelmed by the little changes from the M8. Their were a few renders that I was really hoping for. Regardless, Sense is the best overlay for performance and actually has features that I find useful. Hopefully the camera is as good as they say it is.

+Brian Healy Oh no, I agree. I'm saying they didn't need to change much. The HTC One M8 was one of my favorite phones of 2014. Everything I disliked about it was fixed with the M9. I'd only wish they would offer a "plus" version as I've gotten use to my Nexus 6 and love having a 6" display. That's the only thing keeping me from getting this phone. Although I'm sure 5" is ideal for many, not sure how if I can live with having a smaller screen.

Indeed.  RIP Spock :(  Special nod to the William Bell role.  He played that role well.  I wish they'd have gone further with it

A completely unorganized mess. You check in then wait forever without any idea of when you will get served. The sales reps are clueless on the devices that they are trying to push. I would rate this zero stars if I could. I hate going in here so much it makes me want to punch babies.
