Anyone had the chance to compare soft touch back to leather.  I'm think about switching to a soft touch back if I don't get one of the new Nexus.  Does soft touch give better grip?  While I like the leather and it looks nice, I'm worried about long-term durability if I keep it.  

Wanted to compare at Best Buy today, but of course, as I had feared, no model to look at on display.

Check over at droid-life.com.  One of the staff members had a gen 2 with a leather back and I believe he said the durability was great.  He also makes some comparisons to the new soft touch backs.  I want to say that the reviews were posted within the last week or two.

+Dave Bettner​ because I have issues and change my phone often, lol. Got the new Moto X and am still considering Note 5 and new Nexus. Nothing wrong with phone at all.

Here's a pic of my cognac leather Moto X Pure! First device I ever used with leather. It was a little different that I expected but still glad I got it.

+Rohin Tak I definitely like the size of the Moto X better. Easier to hold in one hand and feel less like I might drop vs Nexus 6 that I always was worried about dropping.  Which is a shame because Nexus 6 was/is a great device I like using, but just too big.

So am I missing something or are you no longer able to see someone's followers on G+ unless you follow the same person too? And even then it only shows you 5 like followers. This seems really restrictive. Twitter and Facebook don't do this and not sure why G+ would if they want people to use and grow their presence on here. #Question #GPlusHelp

I tried out the Jawbone UP3 and here is my review...

PROS:
-Love the minimal band size, too many bands are huge clunky, ugly, or both.
-Stylish
-Automatic run and sleep tracking
-Heart rate monitor data gives idea of health.
-Seems to do fairly good job of tracking step data and not collecting steps when I'm not really moving
-Battery life, don't have to charger every day or every other day.

CONS:
-Band loosens up and usually requires adjustment once a day.
-Can be uncomfortable at times.
-Band attachment mechanism is absolutely horrible.
-Software takes FOREVER to sync or doesn't sync at all sometimes.
-Software does provide lots of good information and coaching tips which others may love, but for me I mostly ignore and just want to see data on what I've done. No way to turn off the constant coaching.
-No active heart monitoring.
-Didn't record my steps at all from mowing yard.
-Worry about long-term durability.
-Expensive

CONCLUSION: I really love the minimal size of the band, the stylish look, heart rate data, and automatic tracking. Jawbone is great at that look of bands compared most.  However, the software annoys me compared to others, band itself (staying at one setting) can be a pain, and price just make me question keeping it.  I definitely don't think it is worth the normal price and at this point I think I'm returning it because I feel like there are more cons than pros.

Hoping to see more, better minimal bands in the future from Jawbone, Fitbit, and others.

Introduction
Love my wife and kids before all else. However, I also love tinkering with mobile devices.  Most often it's my Android phone/iPhone which my wife says I'm always messing with...and most likely I am. Hey a man has to have a hobby, right?  Also enjoy photography although I never seem to have time to fully use my Canon DSLR. Love sports especially football and my Colts!  I also try to be active and enjoy running when I have time.  Aspirations to one day run a mini-marathon...someday....

One of my favorites in Myrtle Beach! Love the shrimp, the large order is generous! Sweet hush puppies, good fries, really good potato soup, and get the croissants on the appetizer menu! Also don't forget you can make a reservation or call ahead as there's always a wait.

Very customer friendly business that does there best to make sure you are happy and get you in and out as quick as possible. Always able to fit me in when I need to even when calling less than 24 hours before I want to make an appt. Tires I've bought from there have always been very good and the cheapest in the area. Trust me, I research before spending money on something pricey like tires.
