Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

What interests me is that one of the reviews on this shows a feature that actually kills background apps when the screen is off, however you can personally select apps to continue to run ie: gmail, facebook G+ etc.. thus saving on battery life. It will be this or HTC.. already had a galaxy for over a year now need a change.

i wander if the zl version will be much cheaper


Can’t decide between this or the Nexus 4. I know they are vastly different phones but we’ll see when my contract ends in June.

Personally I’d go for this, I know it’s not a nexus, but the larger screen, NFC, and the skin on Sony isn’t too heavy either.
