  1. I feel like if I had these I'd end up just taping the adapter on to the head/earphones, so you wouldn't need to constantly worry about carrying it or plugging two things in every time you want to use it.

  2. Lenovo messed up by making the Moto Z Force exclusive to Verizon. I want the larger battery. The Moto Z's battery is not large enough. The battery mod is going to make the phone too heavy. Also they should've released these phones July Worldwide. They will be competing with the Note 7 and the iPhone 7 in September. Bad decision by Lenovo. Nexus devices will be released around that time too.

  3. While I agree that, apart from the style mods and perhaps the battery mod, the others are really only great concepts (as buying a Bluetooth speaker or mini projector would probably give you more use), I have to say that they are already a way better concept then the LG G5 and "Friends".

  4. I like the separate battery indicators. The G5's "camera grip" thing comes with a battery boost, which is nice. But it doesn't show you what the pack's battery level is from the phone.

    And worse, you can't opt to turn off the charging. So if you plug in the camera grip to a fully charged phone, it starts that weird, perpetually charging thing. Which could be really bad, because when you do that to a phone that's plugged into the wall (keep it plugged in while using it) the phone can get really hot. I hope that they implemented some smart mechanism to drastically slow down the charging as the phone's battery approaches 100%, but there's no way to know for sure. The battery boost gives you know input or information.

  5. the background music of this video is badly mixed with the voice … please stop making music videos and start doing tech reviews

  6. Haven't pressed play yet. Is it going to say it something like "While it's a great idea, it falls short. The compatibility for these just aren't up to what we'd like." and then something about an iPhone. Am I right?

  7. Even though it does not have a 3.5 millimeter headphone jack, you can plug a USB C adapter into the charging port and then plug your headphones in. It even comes with the phone.

  8. So, you do get a pair of USB Type C headphones in the box, right? Be pretty dumb if you got a regular pair of headphones and had to use the adapter.

  9. How about getting your teeth fixed instead spending all those dollars in phones to recieve no calls from the friends you don´t have
