    I would image that Intel inside is a double edge sword when it comes to updates.

    I think I see a tiny speck of damage above the volume rocker. It also shows thumbprints really easily when they are under bright lights and a close-up picture is taken.

    "Scuffgate"???? "Thumbgate"???

    If Lenovo can't improve quality control I can't imagine ever buying one. This is ridiculous, and they should be ashamed. I hope whoever gets this phone returns it until they find a perfect one...

    LOL

    Would you now? What does it do that the iPhone doesn't?

    So the lenovo is thin and uncomfortably humongous, and the Sony apparently has a screen similar to the gallery view in iOS.

    *yawn*

    Probably a security feature so the phones don't get stolen.

    Ugly phone with no character. 4 scews on the back makes it look cheap. Front is so vanilla that it exudes boredom.

    Looks ok, but the screen looks quite big as well which I personally see as a negative.

    I wonder if the LeNovo features iBend™ in my back pocket like the iPhone 5? :p

    All of these Android phones look super dated. Nothing innovative or anything that makes me jump out of my seat like previous years.

    Apple is sitting pretty safe.

    There may be some tempting non-iOS devices, but that Lenovo sure as ain't one of them.

    When you say "All these Android phones" - Which ones are you comparing?

    As for "Super dated" - What about ios?! Still looks exactly the same as it did 6 years ago!

    I think apple are anything but safe when it comes to iphones. Nokia & RIM spring to mind.

    This phone is essentially a larger copy if the iPhone. Whether that's good or bad, you decide. But i question all those saying that it looks dated and cheap and then go on to praise the iPhones design.

    I do believe apple needs to freshen up the look but the example provided is not the greatest. I'd rather have my iPhone then that.

    The Note II or S3, well then that shows some great innovation.

    I quite like the design of the iPhone, I would love a slightly larger and wider screen, not everyones cup o tea I know, but with my old eye sight would prove really good, coupled with a refresh of iOS would see my money once again adding to Apples coffers with regards to phone revenue. :)

    And they say the iPhone 5 looks tall and skinny...that K900 is way too tall. So much wasted space on the top and bottom. The Z looks pretty good, but I have other issues with that besides its design.

    I'm waiting for MWC, we should see some nice competitors there.
