New phone! - OnePlus 2 64GB
A few weeks ago I asked your help on deciding which phone I should get to replace my Nexus 4. At that time, I didn't even consider the OnePlus 2 as an option, because of the absence of NFC and the invite system. But the new Nexus phones are just way overpriced in Europe and the Moto X Play doesn't have that great specs (and it's missing a gyroscope). The OnePlus One then became my first choice, but I didn't really feel like buying an 'older' phone. Then, one of my friends suggested getting a OnePlus 2, because he really liked his OnePlus One and said that the invite system wouldn't be a problem at all. I figured that I'd probably like the fingerprint scanner and metal build over the NFC sensor (which I currently don't use). A lot of people around me own OnePlus devices and they're all very satisfied. Oh, and my friend was right about the invite system. Within 10 minutes of begging for an invite on the OnePlus forums I found 4 (!) invites in my inbox. So I ordered the phone. 
Yesterday the package from China arrived and I really love the design of the OP2. Compared to my Nexus 4 this phone is huge, but for now, I consider that an advantage. The fingerprint sensor is really fast and accurate, I like it a lot.
I have yet to see if I made the right choice buying this device, but for now it looks like the perfect phone for me. Well, except for the lack of NFC then.

Resharing for new followers that might be interested in travelling South Africa. Here's the G+ Story: https://plus.google.com/114542282710894358061/posts/Vs5md3GvBRv
 
South Africa 2013
A short video of our journey through South Africa. We travelled from Johannesburg & Soweto to Pretoria, to Hazyview. There we went into Kruger NP and drove the Panoramaroute. After Hazyview, we headed to the Timbavati Game Reserve, staying in the Umlani Bushcamp. Then we went to St. Lucia and drove all the way along the coast to Dolphin Coast and visited Durban. Last part of our trip was the Drakensberg, where we stayed the last week, before going back to Johannesburg to take our flight back to the Netherlands.

Looking for a replacement for my Nexus 4. Which phone should I get?
My Nexus 4 is now 2,5 years old and I'm starting to feel that it's time to get a new device. Battery life is very poor and I'm having some problems with the USB port lately. Other than that, it has been the perfect phone for me.

I love to have a (near) stock Android experience and get new updates fast. Also, I'd like to have NFC. The new features on the Nexuses, like Nexus Imprint and USB Type C are really welcome, but not necessary for me. Battery life is very important for me though. I don't need top-notch specs, but everything has to work fast. That given, I found the following options.

Nexus 6P: Seems like the perfect phone for me, but way overpriced in Europe (€650 against $500), and therefore not an option for me right now. I could wait though, until it drops in price.

Nexus 5X: Although it has lower specs than the 6P, the 5X offers pretty much everything I need, but also this phone is way to expensive in Europe. I don't think it's worth €480.

OnePlus One: This phone might be a little older, but still has killer specs for its price (€300). The only thing that bothers me is the slow software updating.

Moto X Play: This phone has the specs that I need, with a killer battery (3630 mAh). The price of €380 is okay I think, but it lacks a gyroscope sensor (so no Photo Spheres) and there are some complaints about the hardware buttons, which hold me back from buying.

Please let me know what you think. Maybe you own one of these devices and you can help me decide. If you can think of another phone that fits my needs, please let me know as well!

First of all, the location of this hotel is perfect. Very close to everything, but still quiet enough. The rooms are large and bathrooms are very nice. Staff is friendly and really helpful. Oh, and the WiFi is fast as well!
