    I'm looking for opinions, hopefully they are constructive;)
    So I currently have a blackberry 9900, and while it has been a great phone (and I have enjoyed the unlimited internet browsing loophole), it is getting a bit long in the tooth (I've had it almost 3 years)
    So to lay things out - I am in Canada, so carriers don't have the best deals on data plans, but I can work around that I'm sure. Secondly, I have an osx/ios household, 2 iPad mini (original and retina), 3 iPod touches (2 4th gen, 1 5th gen) my wife has an iPhone 5, and we have a MacBook Pro (never letting go of my 17) and finally a Mac Pro.

    Taking this into account, I wasn't really all that impressed with the iPhone 5s last year and I'm not so sure the 6 will impress me. The phones that have most interested me are the bb Z30, note 3, lumia 1020 and recently the lumia 930 (if it ever comes to canada is a different story).

    So long story short, what are your opinions on these. Which could integrate into an ios/osx environment and provide the best experience? I realize they are (almost) all up for replacement models, but hey whatever.
    Or on the other hand do you think the iPhone 6 will really be all that and a bag of chips?

    Coming from BB phones myself they don't sync real well with mac's. Out of those i would go the note 3 it will sync with iPhoto, android transfer, and you can use airdroid. But that's me.
