1) I sure hope the nexus 6 comes sometime in October (or sooner)

2) I've never been so happy to have ads show up in apps! (The ones across the bottom)

The price and spec of the OPO is good, I bought one for my son, he liked, no flaws, bought one for my neighbour, he liked no flaws, bought one for myself (yes that good). I know OPO gets bad press but a lot of it is venting due to hard to get the phone followed by bugs of which many arent real. It is really the "son of Nexus".

I got another Europe trip coming up and looking forward to better battery life.

cheap fast reliable is my mantra. Hence Nexus, OPO, StraightTalk. I moved my neighbour from Verizon and my son from Sprint and both say glad they switched. I prefer T-Mobile's pricing but they dont have the coverage across USA. I put a UK SIM in my phone as I leave USA which covers Europe, so I only take GSM unlocked phones.

Oh cringe, Verizon.....

Yes, Verizon is a bit of a pain to be with sometimes, to me its mainly just the supported devices, as I feel the pricing is reasonable for the amount of coverage they offer.

I REALLY wish they were GSM though. I still have unlimited 4G LTE through Verizon though.

I was just looking at Straighttalk. $495 a year ($41.25 a month) for unlimited everything? That's a pretty good deal. How is their coverage and support for devices?

The concept is
- you get your OS support from the community. So say stock or CM or PA etc
- unlocked phone of high spec.
- monthly carrier cost and switch porting number to get best deal and coverage

In case of OPO you're buying the phone and really just need OPO around to cover phone warranty. You are really committing to CM who give your OS patch and upgrade e.g Android L. Straightalk is just a cheap monthly provider I never call support as it works. Straightalk is not unlimited 4G it is 4G til 3GB then slower. You pair the limited 4G with the OPO 64GB storage and use local media you get when home on WiFi and complement with otg as required. The local storage then means isolated from speed and coverage issues.

Its an open reliable cheaper approach overall.
