  1. So, how many languages do you speak? Be grateful for other people’s efforts.

  2. So, it would seem that English is a 2nd language for this author?
    For example, “…is in same par at…”. I know what you mean, but… sheesh.
    Suggest you have a friend proof your articles before rushing to publish, as otherwise some good info here.

    • This article, kind sir, was not written for the English teachers. It was a comparison between two mobile handsets and, according to my humble opinion, was a very good one. And as far as correct written skills are concerned, only a professional writers like me can do that. Kindly pay attention to the last sentence that you have composed; it is full of grammatical errors. Friends don’t proof articles they proofread them.
