This felt like an advertisement for Motorola and Google. No wonder +Vic Gundotra
likes him. Also for him to give a nod to +Guy Kawasaki
who is a paid consultant for Motorola just makes the whole thing so suspect. At least Mr. Brownlee called them out on the AT&T exclusive BS.
The camera launch "feature" is gimmicky to me. I am happy to get to the camera on my GNexus by turning on the screen and swiping to the left. Seems just as easy.
I think people look at specs+features v price, not one or the other. S4 has lots of features and specs, but it is not selling like Samsung had hoped. Same for the HTC One. So to have only features and expect to sell the hell out of it? I don't know.
There is good info here but nothing objective. That is what I am looking for. +Ars Technica
has done some testing and maybe this X8 processor thing has some value besides marketing hyperbole.
