I'm torn - it would be nice if we had data on how many terrorist activities this sort of thing might have prevented, and/or lives saved.
Just to clarify something with regards to the Fire HD 7, it doesn't have the Mayday button. The official reason for its omission from Amazon's FAQ is:
"Kindle Fire HD doesn’t have a microphone or compatible hardware, which is required to use Mayday."
Out of curiosity, I checked my stepdaughter's iPhone 6 Plus, which is what we used for the video portion of our review. Since then, she's dropped it a few times, had it in her back pocket, and more recently put it in a case. There's not the slightest hint of a bend -- it lays completely flat.
There's also this tidbit from a Reuters article posted last month:
"Legere also said that the ratio of subscribers moving from rival Sprint Corp to T-Mobile was 17 to 1 at the height of T-Mobile's Contract Freedom campaign, a promotion launched in January, whereby the company pays early termination fees for subscribers who switch to its network.
The ratio of customers moving from Sprint to T-Mobile is now around 2.3 to 1, Legere said."
The numbers suggest otherwise. Regardless of T-Mobile's coverage (which, btw, isn't that great in my area, hence why I'm currently with Sprint), they've been killing it. In fact, T-Mobile just had its biggest subscriber growth period ever, adding 2.3 million subscribers in Q3. There's no doubt that a good chunk of Sprint's defectors ended up at T-Mobile.
To clarify, we don't know if Samsung will call its next phone the S6. It's just easier to refer to it that way for now until we know what's in store.
New slogan -- Glue is best!
Bendgate got blown out of proportion. But regardless of that, we didn't detect any structural weaknesses in the iPad Air 2. Just the opposite -- it feels like a solid, premium device. So to answer your question, thinner is better because it's less bulk while remaining structurally sound. I'd also argue that there's room for improvement -- it's still a bit too heavy to hold one-handed for any length of time, like you can do with a similarly sized magazine.
Methinks you missed the point.
Surprisingly, Sprint already pushed out an OTA update to Lollipop for my HTC One (M7) -- installed it about a week ago.
