    I wonder why you never published any impression, review, comparison or comments on Lenovo K900 cellphone. Is this cellphone not available in your area? or maybe I missed it.

    What really lets the lg g2 down is storage although you can use an usb 2 go device and usb memory, this clearly isn’t ideal if yiu are out and about. Other than that the other features of the s5 and z2 are nice additions. All 3 handsets are excellent.
