Windows Phone Rows or Columns?
Regarding the "third row" Windows Phone comment:

Is it a row or column that they've added?

Re: missing info
In this list, I'd rank the devices in the following order (best to worst): One, GS5, Icon, iPhone, N5. The N5 is surely the weakest with respect to battery life. The rest of these should be able to get most people through an entire work day without issue. The One and GS5 both have new extreme power saving modes that significantly extend battery life. For example, the One offers 15 hours of calling, texting, and email with just 5% of the battery left. I haven't had a chance to fully test the GS5's power saving mode, but will in the coming weeks.

But what about battery life? 

That's the single most important variable out there.  Features, usability, price are all close enough.  The device that can go a whole day without needing its umbilical power suck will be the one I buy.

Re: Yawn
More smartphone innovations will arrive later this year, sure, but our readers have shown a strong interest in Samsung Galaxy. Any of you want to weigh in on why the Galaxy phones intrigue you?

Slow content day? This article might be relevant about six mo0nths ago, before the stalling out of smartphone innovations. Things will get interesting again in a few months but for now....yawn.

It's about bringing big data analytics, mobile, social, marketing automation, cloud computing, and the app economy together to launch new products and services. We're seeing new titles in this digital revolution, new responsibilities, new business models, and major shifts in technology spending.
