    I'm unsure if it's an equal. You can customize Torque a ton and log, etc.

    That is a good thing. I'm a long time dropbox user. I've tried all of the other service, and always come back to dropbox.

    I'm not looking for an app to download music. I happily buy all of my music from Amazon MP3. they store all of my music in my amazon cloud. I get a ton of free music based on my Prime membership.

    Equals don't help if you pay for a Sirius/XM subscription. We have it in our cars. It's nice to make use of what you already pay for.

    I've never found anything "bing" related to be better. Google maps is what my company uses.

    Ummmm...an iPhone. I think not. I hate iTunes, i don't use phones that don't support external memory cards. Maybe you got confused since I do own a MacBook Pro (in fact using it for this post). Even on my MacBook, I don't use iTunes. I use the Amazon MP3 app.

    I'd own a Blackberry long before an iPhone. I'm a Samsung Galaxy S3 Android user. In fact, I'm so happy with that phone, that even though I'm eligible at work for a free upgrade, I simply replaced the battery today because I have no interest in changing phones.

    I don't wear a watch, or any jewelry on my hands. Drives me absolutely nuts. I only wear my wedding ring on very special occasions. So, there is no way I'll be getting one of these devices or the dump smart watches.

    My battery in my Samsung Galaxy S3 has recently started to not hold a charge like it used to. It used to easily last all day, but over the past couple of months, it seems like I cannot get more than about 6 hours without having to get the phone onto a charger.

    My phone is 2.5 years old and at work, I'm eligible to upgrade to a new phone every 2 years. Work pays for the phone.

    So, I toiled long and hard trying to decide which new kickass smartphone I was going to buy and I finally reached a conclusion................. (I bought a new battery for my Samsung S3, after 3.5 hours the battery has dropped less than 10%). WINNING

    Tried resetting to factory? May be some software update is available too, check them up.
    I think it'll take 3-5 complete discharge cycles to start getting average up-time.

    Resetting to factory was too much work Software is all updated.

    My new battery went 18 hours yesterday and wasn't even dead when I put it onto the charger., compared to my normal 6.

I think investors are being a little cautious - perhaps the phone won't do brilliantly - perhaps desktop users won't flock to it either - but I think it could do ok in tablets - as long as it is priced right.
