"Why is there not a comment section?"5.0 starson by DrawingGuy
Pros: Can't say more other than looking forward to the next pure Android experience until I own the phone.
Cons: There are phones out there with better hardware specs on paper
Summary: Obviously not a single one of the "user" reviews are actually reviews. None have owned the phone, so they're just spewing specs or comments from other reviews.
My own "review" is a comment to the review made by CNET, not on the phone itself.
I was frustrated by the review made. It was PAINFUL to read. Specs were incorrectly listed in parts (ie Bluetooth 2.0 in some parts and 3.0 in others). It was poorly organized with entire sections being useless or redundant. Additional the reviewers were repetitive - I have never seen "more on that later" so many darned times in any 'review'. You should question why you need to say that. Don't overview the same things a dozen times. You can give a basic overview once at the start of the review and then list straight details. If they do not pertain to the section you are covering, then DON'T MENTION IT IN THAT SECTION. This entire review could have been parred down to three or four paragraphs.
Beyond what I find to have been a very poorly written review is the opinionated drive for simplicity. Yes, I wan't Android to be more intuitive, but I do NOT wan't it to lose the "clutter" of options. There are people that want a remote for their TV that just has an on off button and something to change the channels. Then there are the people that want 42 programmable buttons so they can have it flip menus to a different orientation, change color hues, turn on hungarian subtitles, and add the MS Office paperclip helper to amuse them. Can't really have those 42 buttons without burying them somewhere or having it look more cluttered than that remote that has only 3; but that customization is one reason why I pick Android over iPhone. Would love to see sites that are supposed to be impartial take that line as a good devider rather than as a bad thing because not every monkey can handle the learning curve involved with extra buttons.
