Sweet.
I have an AR15 back home but without all the bolt-ons except a scope.

Yours looks pretty badass

With my old E Class I bought a police issue gun rack for the trunk. I had to have a proxy buy it and ship it from Europe. Apparently they used stripped models as cruisers over there... maybe there's something like that for BMW

Anyway, way O/T... not trying to derail the thread

Hmm...that could be an option...I heard the camera sucks though. I'm interested in knowing how people rave about the battery life considering it's 1800 maH while others have 2400+.

So I bought this coming from an IPhone 5 and here's my take:
Short version: I love it
Long version: The UI is not THAT different from Apple and fairly intuitive. I got the hang of it in one afternoon of use. The touch screen is perfect and the virtual keyboard one of the best I've ever used. I like the "Hub" as it centralizes most of my account to one screen. The camera could be better but - honestly - what are you going to use it for? For most intents and purposes the camera is more than sufficient and has some cool edits like sepia, black and white, etc.
If you need more, just transfer to your desktop and use photo shop. Easy.
I do miss Shazam. I asked shazam on Twitter if they planned on doing a BB10 app and they said "Not now". Also, no Temple Run if you like games you'll know that one.

Music will transfer perfectly fine. Also, the Z10 syncs with E9x blue tooth absolutely perfectly.

I had issues with battery drainage at first. One reason is some glitches with a couple of side loaded apps. The other is that you can run live apps simultaneously. Once I downloaded the patches and started closing apps, I've not had any issues with battery life. Stand by in the holster makes it last more than a day. Plus I have chargers at homes, in the car and in my office. No problems
Summary: All around fantastic and highly recommended.

^ Ah that sounds tempting. I was a fan of BlackBerry before I switched to the iphone. We did our project on BlackBerry when we heard it was making a comeback. I was considering the Z10 at the time. I'll definitely put it on my short list. My contract isn't due up for another month so we'll have to wait and see when the other phones come out.

Using the 4s now, but switching the the htc one. That phone just looks incredibly gorgeous. I've been using iOS for almost 5 years and it's getting a bit boring for me. Gotta change it up

You just got it? A new version is rumored to be out in about 2 months.

They are saying htc one has some build issues? S4 damn plastic. I'm staying with ip5 and wait for the next iphone. Tim Cook made a comment that no iphone with 5" screen. They cannot find any reason why go with big screen which is true..

I have the Galaxy S3 and its fantastic! so customizable! I didnt like the text message system, so I got a new one. New email app as well. You can barely change the background picture on an iphone without calling tech support.

and there is SWYPE! Nuff said.

HTC one would be very cheap because of the $100 rebate that HTC is offering. So with a 2 year contract it would be about $50 out of pocket.

The HTC one looks gorgeous and all the reviews peg the phone as excellent. I currently have the S3 but I'm thinking about getting the HTC One or just waiting to see what's on the horizon. I like the S4 but it doesn't seem like it's worth the upgrade for someone who has an S3.
