I can't believe I'm saying it... I'm considering the iPhone 7 plus.

The Samsung s7 edge international is an option, the pixel is one too. But honestly the iPhone is tempting.

The 6p is getting to me. I've bent two, I get lag and stuttering. Battery isn't Steller and it's heavy.

The sad think is I'm also tempted to get the 5x Because for $279 I can get a plastic, light, durable phone that almost matches the 6p and is better in a way or two..

+Tony Hoffman​ I know you have tried them all.. would love your opinion...

Also wondering if I should just hold out for the iPhone 8 and note8/s8.. and others

Not going to lie, iMessage is a thing too. Also I think switching carriers from cricket to maybe TMO will solve some of my complaint, as my town has notoriously bad cellular signal.

Can anyone verify that the camera app "remote shutter" works on their watch? Mine has crashed since 7.0. phones been wiped, watched wiped. Still when I try to use the remote shutter it fails.

Hey... Looky that... My last post I described a button-less phone that I thought up three years ago...
The idea of the frame having some sort of sensing is interesting. Proximity sensors be it magnetic resonance or IR could be used. Two in a row provides direction detection. Still I feel it can be as simple as the honors fingerprint sensor that can detect swipes, allows for all in one sensor on the back.
I welcome this innovation. I hope to see it combined with the droid turbo like indestructible screen and a serious level of water resistance.

Thanks +Andrew Benson​for the share!

Literally a drawing of mine from over a year ago. The idea: cases that add features to your phone. Due to the n5's weak loudspeaker, and my desires to add things like SD support, I wanted to make a case to add said mods.

Motorola has basically built every one of my ideas, from the laptop dock to the modular cases. The indestructible OLED motoX with tempered glass screen protector.

There is one, the next evaluation. Solid phone. The body will not open. There will not be buttons. It will be waterproof by design. It will be next to unbreakable due to the Plastic OLED display. And will be basically un serviceable.

As for power and volume, the fingerprint scanner will wake and turn off the phone. It's circuit will allow it to work with phone off, to act like a button. Swiping on it will adjust volume, similar to Hauwei's on the mate 8.

Added analytics to my website hakatit.com

Website is running on an Odroid-c2 from Hardkernel. Recently replacing my aging U2 setup. The U2 handled routing, gateway, WiFi AP, an OwnCloud instance and two websites for over three years with almost no issue at all. (Can see the setup in my wire closet under "websites")

New setup has a slightly different role, just hosting my personal site right now.

I was going to use a old tablet for the server, but getting a proper SSL certificate on there was going to be a pain as all the apps I looked at wanted to use bouncy castle, which I think creates a snake-oil (private signed) cert.

I'm considering a blog, maybe some other additions to the site. Hosting code and projects for sure.
