Do Androids Dream of Electric Upgrades?
“…future and past blurred; what he had already experienced
and what he would eventually experience blended so that
nothing remained but the moment.”
― Philip K. Dick, Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?
At this moment, I’m waiting for an Android to arrive. An LG G4 to be exact. It’s an upgrade for my failing LG G2. Here are the factors for my selection:
1. The LG G2 experience has been excellent, especially the battery life, and I’ve grown to love the “knock on” functionality.
2. The Nexus 6 was a contender with its “pure” Android interface, but it’s muy gigante.
3. The Samsung S6 Edge is a beautiful device, but see #1 above.
A great experience = a repeat customer. Huh.
There are 950,000,000 Androids globally, and they’re in the news because of a nasty bug called “Stagefright” that allows hackers to take over an Android device simply by sending it a maliciously modified photo or video. Google has issued a patch, but now manufacturers like LG and carriers like AT&T need to get the patch out to the masses…
