My Android phone just went dead in the middle of a call. I do not know why. I thought about opening it up and popping the battery out, but the case bent a lot when I tried and I was afraid I might break it. I brought it to the Verizon store and popping the battery is exactly what the guy did. I am eligible for an upgrade in December.
I watched a review of Amazon's Fire phone. The consensus is that it's a good for for 2010. Since this is 2014, not a lot of people are impressed. Apple released their AppleWatch (Iwatch?) this week. Again, not a whole lot to be impressed with.
