  2. My thoughts on how he made his hardware point of the display by comparing the Z Ultra 6.4inch to an HTC one 4.7 inch screen. A fair comparison would have been only in the 5.8 inch and above category. 

  3. They need to do after the buzz on this phone. Just found our cool hidden features and even though the battery is only 3050mAh the Snapdragon battery Guru app help and analysis the way you use your phone and makes the decision base on that or when you're not using it

  4. The model here that is reviewing is C6833 with LTE support. There are two other models without LTE support and the models are C6806 and C6802. Please be sure what model that you're going to purchase

    This phone is great for those that are looking for something easy buy different

  7. I have few issues with it which I have explained in one of my videos. I would send you the link in the message. I haven't made the video about the good points yet so let me tell you good points: It is fast, fastest mobiles that I have used to date, bigger screen, looks sleek and beautiful, High touch sensitive screen, Water & dust proof, Cleaner looking UI etc.
