    There are a number of higher rated phones, I recommend seeing http://www.topreport.org/phones/ among others. Reply

    MIUI v5 is awful. If they're not ready to release MIUI v6 please bring back MIUI v4. Reply

    The Snapdragon 801 is rather disappointing. Not much of an upgrade over the MSM8274AB inside of Xiaomi's Mi 3. Reply

    So, how about actually reviewing the Mi 4 when it comes out? I mean you review all the phones that everybody else reviews, but anything that is not mainstream is absent. E.g. the Nokia N9 back when it was released looked like it came from the future compared to my iphone (according to my wife, when I first showed it to her - after using it myself I thought it was a fitting description), but was there a review? No. The Xiaomi Mi 3 was hailed as the best phone you could get by far at its price range. Was there a review? No. Reply

    5" devices are easier to use "in the hand" now? Ergh. I am not sure I like the 4.7" screen on my Moto X more than the 4.3" I had on my RAZR i. Reply

    Agreed. Reply

    Yes, anything above 4.5" is in the grey area called phablet and anything 5.5" or above is full blown tablet. I don't think I've ever used phones of any kind that I couldn't operate entirely one handed.

    Fingers crossed the next Moto G does not grow any bigger and gets a removable battery (not holding my breath)

    Then you have small hands. I'm 6'2", I have fairly large hands. For me, 4.5" is absolutely tiny, but I can't use a 5.5" LG G3 with one hand. My ideal size is probably an LG G2 at 5.2".

    I wish you could custom-order your flagship and specify the screen size in increments of 0.1". Of course it's unrealistic, but it's nice to dream.

    And while I'm dreaming, just give me a waterproof LG G2 with front speaker..
