      Micro iDSD is great for transportable use but the IEMatch switch keeps crapping out. Had to have it serviced twice now :/

        I sold my Micro iDSD for similar reasons. I loved the amp itself, but the switches on the bottom caused issues.

        The DAC section is no slouch either, but that's preference talking (also I preferred the Bifrost which is in the same price bracket, haha).

        I will likely have it repaired then get something like a Fulla 2 for an AIO I can take around. Dragonfly also a candidate, but having a big ol knob makes for a compelling argument :))

        There's also the Nano BL - more expensive than the Fulla or Dragonfly but has iEMatch, which comes from a second output socket rather than via a switch. And it has a big knob :)

      One UI seems to fix TouchWiz. Back to Samsung for the first time since the original Galaxy S it is. Also, hallelujah it has a 3.5mm jack.

        HAH! I will concede OGG gets close (to my ears), but yeah there's no replacing lossless codecs.

        As for f2k, I still love it but am sorely tempted to buy JRMC after my trial expires. Sigh, SQ aside it's just a lot nicer to use XD

        I will admit I first thought we were talking about phone UI overlays and was about to rebut saying One UI looked hella good, then I saw f2k and decided I'd check that out after all :))

        @zerodeefex Haha, that makes sense. Got to try a Vive in store some time ago and that's what got me hooked on VR. Still working towards a PC that can handle it, but it's in the pipeline.

        On that note kinda sucks I have to go grey market for the Pixel (top contender; that camera!), but that comes with the territory I guess.

        It wouldn't be a bad idea to try them both on in a store and see if one is more comfortable to wear.

        @FallingObjects That's the plan, but it's harder to track down the Daydream than I expected. I'm optimistic about finding one in a mall where there's loads of grey market stuff, but I... have had bad luck "losing" things in crowds there, haha.

        @Thad E Ginathom That's exactly what's wrong with my mobile, actually. The battery on my Z Play barely lasts half a day of modest use after two years and change. Makes me wonder where Moto gets their batteries made.

        It is not the two years I mind so much as the not-customer-replaceable. I just want to be able to easily buy a new one.

        Being fair to my X-Play: it had dropped from over 36 hours of battery life to having to charge it every night. It still got through most days. It was still as good as any other phone I had.

        Ahh yeah, user-replaceable batteries need to make a comeback. The one on my Moto lasted 36 easily with moderate use, which makes its current state stand out all the more. Lenovo makes a good phone, and the gesture controls on the Moto are among the better I've had the pleasure of using.

        If I didn't play either I might be tempted but I'm already invested 1k+ hr into warframe, and there's not really enough time in a week to play both.

        I can move around, just that I've developed a hacking cough that doubles me over if I bend my body in such a way that stresses out the itchy bits.

        Not the worst I've felt so I'm in good enough humour, but I honestly can't breathe through my nose just now.
