> In reply to john.br.2013 @ 2013-06-08 00:04 from JpH2 - click to readThe chokes you've mentioned is due to the launcher. I've tried using a very popular one (starts with n), and there has not been one hiccup for months. The moto launcher usually stutters at certain actions, like pressing the menu key, accessing the quick settings, or displaying all homescreens,. This made me realise that the reason couldn't have been the processor itself, but rather the launcher.

Just got a RAZR I. Thanks to the Intel processor it turns out it's not compatible with half my apps. Be warned.

Got my wife that phone. Looks beautiful in white. Very fast and responsive, great battery life and the most compact 4,3 phone!

Go ride your bike with a 5.5" phone in your pocket, later go with a 4.3" and tell me which is easier to use!! I know because I do this, I ride my biek and have a razr i. You can't compare a 4" high spec phone with a 5" high spec phone, its not the same thing! its like comparing a car to a truck.

Made an account just to review this phone. I use it for everything, even riding bicycle. The best high-end phone for small hands, even with a protective case. has the pen-tile problem but you get used to it. Intel processor does have some chokes at points. is very fast in app transition (i use it for college works). battery is enough for a full (24hrs) day of use (charging every night), but can go on to almost 2 days. I have not dropped it so I have no idea if it can take a punch.

This phone can't get any smaller from the sides, but it could lose a couple of millimetres off the bottom ( still not a lot of bezel though). Just look how big sony phones of similar screen size are .
If motorola make the x-phone anything less than 4.7 inch and keep it edge to edge i'll definitely buy it since im not ready to jump into the 5 inch category just yet. Meanwhile, i'm perfectly happy with my razr i.

1 year on, and this is still a really strong 4.3" compact phone. Beats the dimensions of S4 Mini and HTC One Mini. I wouldn't be surprised it it had better battery life and a larger battery as well. Does anyone know if there are any smaller phones with 4.3" display.

and the galaxy s4 octa core uses the same but mp4
that means lenovo will use a dual core and samsung quad core GPU, but still a good GPU but they should had put the quad core GPU in it

What an ugly design! Even the screws on the sides are clearly visible.

I think the lenovo will be an absolute beast. However, I'm not a fan of huge phones, which is why I thought of the Xiaomi Mi-2s since its got all the goodies in a small package. Just like the Xiaomi Mi-2s, however, its availability could be very limited. This didn't stop me from getting the razr i from overseas, but it stops the phone from being a hit and getting good sales.

Judging by what I've seen from the razr i, I think the lenovo K900 will be faster than the S4 et al. Much faster, actually. Its gpu is the same as the one on my ipad 3, which performs brilliantly (better than adreno 320). The only series disadvantage for me is the stainless steel body. I had it on a nokia C7 a while ago and it heated up quite a bit and pretty poor reception.

Between the phones you've mentioned, i'd choose either the Sony or the lenovo. I'm not a fan of LG and Samsung seriously lack creativity. Xperia Z would be the beauty and the Lenovo would be the beast :)
For me, however, I'm hoping for another Moto with intel and a smaller than 5 inch screen size.

I dont know if you've heard, but samsung will release a tablet with an intel processor (tab3 10.1). This will be a major boost for intel processors. I'm hoping more and more phones will have them.

As for the memory bit, don't worry about it. I've already filled a 16gb with music, some shows and pictures and it doesnt look like it really cares.
