    (of course I meant flash storage)
    was sure you did.

    As to the dollar, its still an Apple product and pledging even a dollar is painful for me. As to materials gaffa tape, play-d'oh and hot glue are all acceptable and there extra points if it does not work when your finished

    I actually find it quite useful, especially in the car. or if there's someone nearby and I don't want them to see my PIN.

    You could use an NFC sticker in the car or get tasker to detect you are in a moving car and open your phone for you. Both of these options work very well.

    Except with an iPhone which is what I have so they don't really work that well at all.

    Depends on which of the tests backs up your preference

    Go back three months and use the test where the Lumia wins, S4 2nd and iPhone 3rd.
    Use latest test if you want iPhone to be best.

    In my own humble opinion, Lumia cameras are by far the best.

    When I wanna take photos I have this cool new piece of tech called a Cam-errr-argh. Anyone heard of it?

    ...my phone's for quick snaps, so who cares? My priorities for a handset have the camera pretty much at the bottom....

    True that best SLR camera is always going to take the best photos.

    But smartphones are the most used "cameras" in the world these days because the best camera is always the one that you have with you. The great SLR that you have back home isn't much good if you need to take a photo right now.
