Smartphones

Postby Jasonisback » Thu Sep 30, 2010 7:45 pm

Right, I'm bored of my shitty Nokia (mind it is quite good).
I want something i can use for

  • Email (Less so)
  • Twitter
  • Facebook
  • Decent Web Browser
  • Needs WiFi!
Not a Blackberry as well, I'd rather not join that trend (and I don't like the small buttons for my fat fingers)
I'm willing to spend about £30 a month. 100-300 mins and Unlimited texts. Would be great if the phone was free as well.
(I'm more looking on o2 so i can keep my number and i get discount as well)

Any ideas?

Bit of an oxymoron but nm. I have a Sony Ericsson Xperia x10 mini pro, quite a small phone but it's doing well for me so far (except it got wet in a thunderstorm and broke :oops:)

Although I do have a Blackberry and I love it :') But I have the Storm 2, so in landscape mode its good for people with fat thumbs.

Imma thinking about getting a new phone. Haven't decided yet, but from what I can see, best around at the moment would be an HTC or a Samsung Galaxy...I'm leaning towards the latter, just need to find a decent deal on it them I'm sorted 8-)

I can defiately vouch for samsung galaxy s.

It is android based. Uses google for a search engine.

Is very quick and hasnt broken yet. (And you can link several emails to it).

and i have dropped it (on the pavement) and the screen didnt crack and phone didnt break.

I love it. You should get it.

Well, im happy with my iPhone.

I thought they were ridiculous pompous gimmicks sported only by the yuppiest of yuppies before i got one.

I could not live without it now. They're fantastic. Yes, I know there are phones with faster processors (though not many), and more RAM (again, not many) - however you can't put a number on emotional attachment, and people do get attached to the iphone, something that infuriates some Android users who know their phone is technically better - yet they don't share that same attachment.

It's bizarre.

I'm so attached to mine that I have a little pet robot on there called Parandroid :lol: but emotionally?! :/
And how on Earth can emotional attachment to a phone be a selling point?!

Whatever it is - get an Android one Jason :D.

Personally, I've not found an android phone I could live with for 18 months.

Take your computer - if you lost it, you may well be devastated. Not for the music and videos and work you lost, but because you have an innate connection to it.

Ok, so i'm a geek and some people may not become attached to their gadgets (huhuh), but my point is that the iPhone is the first phone i've used (in a long, long line of smartphones ranging from crackberries to HTC) that I have a similar attachment to. To me, that's a damn good thing.

Now that android has hit the 70,000 apps mark, there is very little to seperate the iPhone from its closest rivals. Not only is there 'an app for that', there is also an android 'app for that'. So go with what you feel is going to be the phone for you.

That Motorola is as ugly as sin, btw. You should get it.

I have a HTC Desire on Three. £35 a month with unlimited Data, 5000 texts and three-to-three minutes, and 2000 normal minutes.

It's a great phone. Perfect size, awesome Market (Android's equivalent of App store) with so many awesome apps: eBuddy, Firefox, IGN, Last.fm, Winamp, Poweramp, Photobucket, Playstation, Skype, Spotify and the usuals like Facebook, Twitter, Youtube and whatnot. The 8MP camera is also awesome.

I have a Samsung Galaxy Europa - the cheapie smartphone! It's on pre-pay and does all the internet stuff I want, has wi-fi, a standard phone camera and all round does the job.
