What type of mobile phone should I get?

Postby abap_doctor » Thu May 24, 2012 7:43 am

OK, chaps, might as well get my money's worth now I'm sort of back...

My, less than a year old, HTC Sensation is a big pile of poo... Vodafone :mrgreen:

It went through a stage of randomly turning itself off every few minutes... Which is BLOODY annoying... :evil:

It suddenly gets hot and the battery discharges 30%, and now it refuses to make any phone calls... :shock:

So whats the bleedin' use of a big door-stop you have to carry around...?

OK, so it's a pretty good camera... So what have I got that expensive Canon-bridge for???!!! :?

So I'm going back to the shop on saturday to argue myself a new one...! :D

I DON'T want an i-phone, so please don't recommend one, but what is a good smart-phone to get these days?

I'm not averse to switching from HTC, BTW...

Any ideas? :?:

Samsung Galaxy S2. Best value for money I can think of. Good screen, great camera, official Ice Cream Sandwich update. It has been around enough to not be overpriced anymore, but still not enough to start lagging behind. It was best selling smartphone of 2011 for a reason.

Issued a Blackberry Torch by my employer. Most unintuitive UI I have ever experienced. Problems daily that can only be fixed by removing the battery and waiting for the 5 minute re-boot.
My friends with various HTC phones have had pretty good luck and like them, but none are the Sensation model - mostly Incredibles.
Good luck!

Samsung Galaxy SII. Better battery life than the HTC Sensation, however, randomly switches itself off almost every other day.
ICS update is good on it. All I can say is it is better than the iphone 3g in most respects.

I liked my HTC Desire HD much better. This may be a step backwards, but was a damned good phone. except for its battery life.
But if you want battery life, you should go for the Nokia 6300.

I have myself a small Wildfire S. I updated its Android to 2.3.5 and I'm planning to root it soon through htcdev. Zero problems in half a year, decent battery if you waste it playing (as I do) or abusing of non-phone connections (as I do). Superb battery if you only use it as a phone (as I did).

But I hear the self-esteem complexed owners of coupées like the Audi A5 must own an iPhone too...

Blackberry Bold.

Good Phone, easy interface, does everything you need business wise and it has a camera... (although what you need a camera on a phone for I don't know.... maybe I'm a dinosaur).

To transfer all the content you have been painting on flip-charts to a file. Honestly! It's what I use mine for.

I'm not gonna comment on that dinosaur remark, seeing that you are an OLD friend :P

I have a Samsung Ace LeFluer which is a completely gay phone marketed for teenage girls. So I of course love it

It is completly full of pictures of skinny Slavic girls in variaous stages of undress and outrage

HTC Sensation seems to be behaving itself at the moment... When it's working I'd say it's one of the best phones. Except for battery life which is terrible!!! :(

I also had a Wildfire too, Vic, and it was great! In fact I've still got it and brought it with me as a backup for the desire...

Went into Vodafone shop on Saturday and they recommended Samsung Galaxy S III when they get some in!) or the HTC one...

May go for the Samsung if HTC plays up in the next few weeks...

Audi links via bluetooth and turns the car into a phone! Works well, but searching through directory is a nightmare! Especially on the M5 at 98mph!!! :shock:

when I went to the shop, "the white one" was on sale. So I took it. Did not know about the flowers. Had to buy a pink cover so it would not look so gay
