    If they would just not remove the DRM keys… I can live with losing warranty, but effectively crippling my device because I want to run certain apps is just bonkers…

    Yeah right, 6 GB Ram. Either this is wrong, or the version should read Z14 Ultra

  • Ado Kanashii

    yeah.. and say GOODBYE to ps4 remoteplay with this “bootloader open” DRM keys gone forevaa!!

  • Hasan Aleadani

    everything is possible except the lens, battery and RAM and it may be thinner

  • Hasan Aleadani

    YEAH :))

  • The Flash

    You’re right, but Nils’ point is that you can’t keep your phone rooted and still have the epic low light photos, or things like X-Reality..

  • Nils Westhoff

    Except that you need to root to backup the TA partition… And it so happens to be root requires an unlocked bootloader (for now) on the Z3 which in turn destroys the TA partition before you can even back it up.

  • yuckLEAK

  • hahahhahaha no.

  • krystoff

    that only happens with 4.3 – devices… not with 4.4
