If you are on Team Magenta, now might be a good time to pick up a Micro-Sim for your V2 if you don't have one already.

Nothing is more annoying than having to stop in and pay $10-15 for a different size sim just to use the service you already pay for. 
T-Mobile has been rolling out the deals recently. Whether it’s an extended trial run for Verizon customers or $100 back for buying Samsung products, T-Mo hasn’t exactly been shy about its promotions this past month or two. And today, comes a special deal ... [read full article]

Shocker. 

I'm sure you've all seen it by now. I just felt compelled to post. At least now we don't have to wait longer for the disappointing news, just straight to the disappointment.

I was really looking forward to that, but the Surface Pro is a pretty sweet replacement.

In hand Friday?.....That would be pretty spectacular. Have to wait and see what the official word is. If true, 2 day shipping would mean they will need to confirm shipping address's likely today or tomorrow.

Hey it's crunch time. They have never had good social media presence. The determining factor for me now is the phones performance. You can't hype a phone this much and then not deliver after everything is said and done.

Some questions left unanswered...share your thoughts....

1. never got an answer from my Twitter question about the V2 charger. It would be nice to match this juggernaut with a suitable charger. I am hoping to see a quickcharge or Qi charger (not likely) included.

2. WiHD dongle. How much? What's their test device? Included for early adopters (another pipe dream)

3. Cases. Did they release proper specs to any large case MFG's? We know we are getting an SP with the phone, did that company make them anything else?

4. SIM card. Mini, Micro, Nano?

5. Service/Support/Warranty. Hoping it's not another One+ type of deal. Post purchase is as important as pre-purchase. Issues, bugs, hardware problems, parts. Many fail at this.

6. OS. Likely AOSP with some specific drivers/kernel/apps. When will code be released?

7. Included headphones. No complaints from me, I likely will not use them. But would rather have an option from question 1. Can't complain though for free, so I'm down for whatever.

2) The WiHD receiver will be available for $50-$60 USD and may be available instead of SqGl earbuds for pre-orderers.
4) The SIM slot is Micro SIM.

good deal on a solid backup or cheapy for TMO.
Taylor Wimberly originally shared to Huawei:
 
This really is an amazing deal for a 5-inch HD Android phone with LTE. Only $139.

Not that is matters (cause we have no choice and they have my money), but I will say after LG's G4 announcement today the 801 is feeling a little "long in the tooth". An 808 looks like a good mix between 805 and 810. Nice bump in graphics...there is always compromise, fortunately Saygus doesn't compromise much.
Compare Snapdragon 800, 600, 400 and 200 series processors specifications, capabilities, and features.

If its not overheating its being throttled. Always something. Anyone here ever found a fan case of some kind? Like those knock off gaming controllers with vents and fans in them...just a phone case? Lol
