Welcome to Feedback Loop, a weekly roundup of the most interesting discussions happening within the Engadget community. There's so much technology to talk about and so little time to enjoy it, but you have a lot of great ideas and opinions that need to be shared! Join us every Saturday as we highlight some of the most interesting discussions that happened during the past week.
Happy Saturday! Did you survive April Fools' Day? We did and are here to bring you another edition of Feedback Loop. This week, we debated the merits of the Samsung Galaxy S5 versus the new HTC One, asked if cameras in tablets are a good idea, talked about how to find the best gadget deals online, sought advice on the best everyday cameras and wondered what's up with these crazy luxury feature phones. Head on past the break and join the conversation in the Engadget forums.
S5 or M8?
Jaredhc is looking for a new Android phone. Two of the best Android phones out right now (or coming very soon) are the Samsung Galaxy S5 and the new HTC One. There are pros and cons to each one. Which would you choose?
Are cameras in tablets a good idea?
We've all seen people take photos with an iPad. Sure, it looks ridiculous, but it's often practical, right? That's what GF wants to know. Tell him how you feel about cameras on tablets in the Engadget Forums!
Best time to buy items online?
Brucedude is looking for some good deals and wants to know your tips and tricks for finding the best deals. There are the more well-known tools like camelcamelcamel. Are there other things that come to mind? Head over to the forums and help him out!
Favorite everyday camera?
Engadget Associate Editor Emily Price has her eye on the Fujifilm X100S. Do you have experience with the X100S? Can she throw it in a bag and carry it around all day or are there better options? Tell her your preferred camera for everyday use!
What's up with luxury feature phones?
John Colucci takes a look at some recently announced luxury feature phones. Starting at $2,000 and offering fairly subpar specs, these devices leave a bit to be desired for your average smartphone user. Worst of all, you can't even install the Engadget App on them! So, who would buy these devices? If you happen to be a Russian oligarch who reads Engadget (hey, that's awesome), let us know what appeals to you about these phones.
