Lord Farkwad: Oh boy! A phone thread. Let's bring on the phone pr0n.

It doesn't have sharp knees edges and doesn't appear to be made from off the shelf components

Is that Optimus G Pro pretty much the poster boy for what the article was decrying? Not that I agree with the fanboy article, which paints the iPhone 5 as the objectively perfect phone despite the fact that it is technologically inferior to a Lumia 920 that is a third the cost if you compare 32 GB models. The iPhone 5 has no NFC, no wireless charging, no true HD resolution screen, no optical image stabilization, and an OS that has a really dated user interface (outside of the notification shelf they stole from Android).

It's just not the perfect phone like they want to make it. For example, my wife has an iPhone 5, but I find the screen to cramped to comfortably use, where 4.5" or larger screen is perfect for me because I can comfortably type with my thumbs on the onscreen keyboard. You can't do that on an iPhone because it is so narrow. The same phone just doesn't work for me and her both because our hands are way different in size.

Meh - it's not a reflection of these's the fact that a 'phone' today has less resemblance to a phone than it does to a computer.  Cell phones today are tiny multipurpose computers that can do a million things and make phone calls.
