The bigger the phone...

The more the need for a removable battery and expandable storage goes up. I'll pass.
Removable battery maybe, but what does that have to do with expandable storage? Increased storage use is a matter of newer OSes/newer app versions that are more sophisticated and are thus take up more space. The physical size of the device is irreleva...
Why a bigger battery? The main advantage (IMHO) of huge phones is huge batteries. Why would you need a removable battery when you have 3,220 mAh to work with?

"Give me more time, and I'm sure I'll find something to complain about."

Never read that before on an iPhone review, nor the "Sadly, the back panel cannot be removed.".
Guess you didn't bother to fully test iOS 8 neither, since it came up with bugs after bugs, to which Apple released updates to fix them and I never read this on P.S.
Everyone who knows anything about smartphones knows this is an issue of sexiness. Not having a removable battery allows the phone to be thinner and just have a nicer looking design in general. It should be no surprise that Apple was one of the first m...
1. This is a hands-on, not a review.

2. It sounds like you're expecting one reviewer to discover bugs in one week of use that Apple couldn't find in months of testing with thousands of beta testers. That's not quite fair.

3. Bugs - that are obv...
I absolutely love the reviews on PS over any other site. For the most part, the editors try to remain unbiased.

I do concur to an extent that editors on these sites receive devices on a regular basis and really never experience issues that creep u...

I don't understand why reviewers feel the need to offer their opinion about a particular phone being too big (or too small). It's certainly valid to say it's "really, really big", but whether or not "some people may not like that" is irrelevant. The consumer will decide on their own. One-handed operation is not really that common from what I have observed. Maybe if you still use a flip phone, but that's a pretty small percentage.
Pinch zoom was made famous on the iPhone, a device notoriously touted for being usable with one hand. I am yet to see a single person do pinch zoom one-handed. Many other features like surfing the web or texting are also naturally two handed exercises...

I'm getting the Moto X

This phone is absolutely amazing when it comes to features, however imagine lugging this thing around, ESPECIALLY with a case on it. It's going to be crazy trying to fit it in your pocket and you'll have to be extremely careful not to drop it.

Quick Charge Question

In this article it reads: "Plugging the phone in for just 15 minutes will add six hour of life to the battery. That's pretty good."

But in a previous article it reads: "It can deliver 8 hours of up-time after being charged for just 15 minutes." (Link: https://www.phonescoop.com/articles/article.p hp?a=14807)

Which one is correct?

It's still very impressive that a 15 minute Quick Charge will add more than 4 hours of juice, but I'd just like to get things right.
