    You know you guys are incompetent, incomprehensible, self-promoting, grammer-mutating, technologically illiterate idiots who don't know a single thing about the subject at hand, right? Nah, probably too stupid to realize it as you are ching-chinging the profits off people foolish enough to listen to you and purchase your disgustingly exploitative product. Yeah, that's probly it.

    What you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

    In a strange way, the 5.1-inch screened device is what the world would get if the iPhone 6 and the Sony Xperia Z3 had a baby. It’s smooth, slathered in Corning Gorilla Glass 4 from head to toe but is subtly underpinned by masses of metal, and one can clearly feel it.
