Yes, I always had unlocked phones, it's quite a bit cheaper. A couple of my mates also have Z3 compacts and they all like them. Sony also has a rather light skin but with some improvements like better battery management, which seems to be rather terrible (if at all existent) in stock android, at least from my experience with a Nexus 5.

So bought the Define S and x3 Gentle Typhoons 1450rpm versions. Would have got more but 3 was all Amazon had in stock. Got tired of my R4. So I'm retiring her

No they just changed OEMs. So now the OEM is Nidec. Same exact thing different brand name. Nidec made the GTs the whole time.

Ya it's going to be awesome! I plan on going under water, so I figured my current R4 is doable, however for a beginner extremely difficult. Not much wiggle room anywhere. So I decided I should get a new case and I found the Define S for less than $80(about 50pounds) and at the price it's a steal! I would have rather gone for a MATX or MITX case, but that would mean a whole new board and CPU since z77 isn't around much anymore. Cheapest option was a new case. Either way it's a massive upgrade over the R4 Won't look different from the outside which is a plus.. makes it so my GF won't notice I spent money a new case! hahaha
