    Arris and seefizzle like this.
  4. The display looks low resolution. I'm suspecting that the UI is poor because neither company truly understands user interface design.

    Because it would be hard for others to think of you as "suave" without it...?:confused:

    Because not wanting it would promote terrorism and assail the American way of life?

    Help me out here.:oops:
