Looks like I'm getting Verizon FiOS when I move.

I have the option to do Comcast or Verizon, and I'm forced to pay for basic Comcast cable (which sucks), but I've heard Comcast has a 250GB data cap and FiOS has same upload/download speeds.

Now, FiOS is a little pricier than what I've paid for u-Verse, but I was basically wondering, what plan do y'all think is reasonable?

There's 25/25 for $44.99/month, 50/50 for $54.99/month, and 75/75 for $64.99/month. Don't think I'd need to go higher than 75/75, if that's what we even go with.

For comparison, I've got 25/5 with AT&T right now. Seems fast, but there's been a lot of network outages/their modem + router combo sucks and it keeps completely dropping out.

Anyways, thanks!

+Steam Link or GameStream?

Will that Steam Controller work with GameStreamed games? I already have an +NVIDIA Shield Tablet and was considering getting the Console for Android TV, but I really like the Steam Controller.

I dun goofed.

So, I bought a Sony Xperia Z3 (model D6616) on Swappa for use on AT&T, but I've now learned it doesn't support the 700 Mhz band (LTE Band 17, I think).

I'm told everything else will work, but it won't be able to use that band.

Is it worth keeping? I'd think not, but I'd love some insight from the community.

Thanks.

+Ben Jammin​ As I move around the country, though, will I hurt for it? Building penetration, different bands in different places, etc.

Which +Sony Xperia Z3 variant is better?

I need to get something before the 14-day window to return this +LG USA Mobile G4 and the Z3+ isn't for sale in the US yet.

I like aspects of both of these phones, and wonder if the Compact would be a little too small (compared to what I've been using), but I also remember how much I loved the original +Motorola Mobility X 2013 screen size.

Thoughts?

Anyone know when the +Sony​ Xperia Z3+ is releasing in the US?

I really want to like the G4, but this slow charging thing is ruining it for me.

4K TV Question

So, I'm pretty sure I know the answer to this, but in terms of price-to-quality (and size) ratio, what's the best bang for the buck in the 4K TV land?

I've had my eyes on the VIZIO 4K for a while (and everyone seems to say great things about it), but I just want to make sure I'm making the best investment.

Thanks, y'all!

Best place for a set of Kanto YU5 speakers?

So, I originally bought them to replace my Audio Engine AV-40s that I was using at my desktop, but when they arrived, I noticed they're a bit larger than I thought.

Has anyone used these hooked up to their TV, maybe with one of their subwoofers? Is it worth it, or are they not nice enough for the living room but too nice for the office?

Not an audiophile by any means, so any insight folks have on this sort of thing would be great!

Thanks!

CyanogenMod on the Sony Xperia Z3

So, I know once upon a time Sony made it a lot easier for folks to put CM on their Sony phones or something (am I making that up?), but did they do anything in particular to say, make sure the excellent camera on the Z3 would still be amazing on CM, or would it go to stock Android camera software and lose all of the built-in Sony amazingness?

Just wondering. My Z3 arrives tomorrow, and if the LG G4 has taught me anything, it's that I really don't like LG's theming, and might just be missing vanilla Android entirely.

Has anyone ported the Sony camera over? So much research to be done!

Thanks!

I think that's more on Sony's end. Once you unlock the bootloader, you lose a lot of goodness from the camera.

Got my Google Fi invite!

Now I see what the hubbub is about porting over your Google Voice number...

Namely, I use both of my numbers for different purposes (Google Voice for most people, carrier number for a certain group I teach for), so, will I lose my carrier number if I go to Fi?

Anyone with insight/experience is appreciated, as I'd have to figure out what my plan is I'm going to bail on my carrier number.

Thanks!

I had to pass on Fi for this very reason. I use GV and an Obihai for my home phone and my carrier number for my cell. At this point I can't afford to lose my Obihai support while merging to one number. If Fi ever supports keeping my GV number separate so I can continue using my Obihai then I will consider making the switch.

Story

If you never ask, the answer is always no.
Introduction
First and foremost, I'm a technology enthusiast, with a focus on Android and fitness tech. I'm a former writer for Android Central, Tecca, and Android Authority, and currently, I'm a middle school band director in Austin, TX.

I'm also the founder of Android Etch, an Android-focused, etched glass site. There, I sell all sorts of Android-branded products, from pint glasses to shot glasses, wooden coasters to chess sets. It's a labor of love, and something I've wanted to start for years.

I'm very interested in fitness (and getting back in shape!), and always looking for new ways that technology can help me achieve that goal. I own a Fitbit Aria and use Endomondo to record all of my exercise, so I can keep track of my progress.

I also love writing, and maintain a personal blog, Margin of Error, although, if you check it out, you'll notice it's sparse. It's not that I don't like putting up content, but I'm always a little nervous how it'll be received (if it's even read at all). I'm going to try to get more up, though.
