I've been obsessed with consumer technology for about as long as I can remember, be it video games, photography, or mobile devices. If you can plug it in, I have to own it. Preparing for the day when Android finally becomes self-aware and I get to welcome our new robot overlords.

  1. facebook 3.0 link leads to the softbank article……

  2. She called the Droid X the “Razor X”
    *cringe* … *facepalm* :|

  3. The ViewPoints lady called the Droid X the “Razor X”
    *cringes* … *facepalm* :|

  4. Why’d you even bother with Viewpoints? Low info consumer. A razor X? And she uses this 2 year old phone to compare Android to a new iPhone?

    1. You shoudl check out her next article: The Commadore 64 vs. the iMac.

    2. I was wondering the same thing….but is there a Razr X? is she looking into the future or something, as far as I know Moto hasn’t release any phone called the Razr X…that shows that she knows a lot about devices. She just wanted to be like the people around her and got herself an iphone.

      1. There’s none that I know of. What I believe she means is the Droid X. And with my wife having one I know for sure an iPhone 5 dismantles it. But so does my Galaxy Nexus. Why this lady would feel the need to not only compare the two but also hint at an overall reflection of Android I fail to understand.

        1. I know she was referring to the Droid X, I was just proving a point that she has no idea what she was talking about.

  5. That display on the HTC J is truly amazing…. Good job HTC

  6. HTC should make another model called HTC B. And then make a commercial with the 2 phones: “Fly like a Butterfly, sting like a B”.

    1. Or want a B J get a HTC phone….lol

  7. Let’s discuss Bullsh*t called Oppo ‘manufacturing’/’prototyping’ bullsh*t called Find 5.
    It doesn’t exist, isn’t in the works and WOULD NOT have those specs/dimensions:

    1st NO: 6.9mm thickness & 12Mp camera >>>> A huge design bump or impossible.

    2nd NO: 12Mp camera and SONY. >>>> 12Mp camera sensor by SONY doesn’t exist, so 13Mp or BS.

    3rd NO: 1080p display and 441ppi. >>>> SHARP’s 1080p display in HTC J Butterfly has 440 ppi and SHARP will not be able to cut 441ppi for something called Oppo technically. Who does manufacture that ‘miracle’?

    4th NO: 6.9mm thickness and 2,500mAh battery >>>> Motorola’s DROID RAZR HD has 2,500mAh battery and is 8.4mm thick. Motorola is an engineering monster. Oppo is nothing and it wouldn’t be able to get 6.9mm 2,500mAh.

    5th NO: those leaked ‘photos’ look different, depict different (and awful plastic) ‘designs’, look 3D-modelled.

    6th NO: Oppo is not a brand, it has NO scale, no powerful industry connections and contracts to be able to manufacture something like HTC J Butterfly.

    HTC’s 1080p device has sports plastic design and awful color options, where BLACK is matte and red/white are GLOSSY, but it’s REAL. Absolutely real, the world’s first 1080p smartphone headed for Japan and then Verizon (hope) as DROID Incredible X. Oppo Find 5 is a chinese bullsh*t created probably to drag AWAY attention from the HTC’s tech product. Because it has the same and BETTER spece on paper. But it exists on the same paper only, while HTC’s is a REAL 1080p smartphone with weak battery, thick ugly case and beautiful Full HD 440ppi display. Who is behind Oppo- it’s another question. Competition.

    1. Sony Xperia S has a 12MP camera in it. Not sure about the mobile division, but Oppo digital in the US defies logic when it comes to product design / cost, so it wouldn’t surprise me that they could design a product that bests everything else, just like their bluray players.

  8. If you have an issue with that HORRIBLE phone comparison, please TELL HER! https://twitter.com/JillsGoodThings I did.

  9. If Google ever sues anyone for patent violations, the defendant can post a link to that ancient chinese artwork citing it as prior art and thus invalidates all of Google’s Android patents xD

  10. Comparing a 2yr old Droid X (not Razr X, although that sounds like a badass 2013 Droid X variant) to the iPhone 5, of course the iPhone will win. That’s like me comparing my 2012 Samsung Galaxy S3 to the 2010 iPhone 4 and using that experience to say iPhones just more or less suck. Android has come a long way since 2010, including but not limited to 720P HD displays with cameras that are nothing short of phenomenal. And the Galaxy S3, in the opinion of many, is superior to the iPhone 5 in virtually every way possible. And don’t even get me started on the staleness that is iOS. ICS/JB > Watching Grass Grow > iOS

  11. who cares what she is comparing it to, look at why she thinks it’s better. functionality wise the outdated android still won with its notifications and whatnot, her decision was heavily based on “ooohhh shiinnny” on the functionality level i’ve heard nothing but complaints from people who have updated their ios or gotten an iphone5
