Buying a new smartphone

Recommended Posts

Good to hear that ! Thinking of getting a tab myself...

Would you care to let us know the model of the new tab ? Samsung tab 7 may be ?

And for how much does it go for these days ?

Asus Transformer TF101 16GB, no idea how much it went for when it was bought but I believe its around 35k mark now. I got a hand me down because the owner wanted to go for the new iPad. I need to get the keyboard thingy for it though.

Saw what must be the first Galaxy S III in the country last night. Bought in Singa, not here officially yet, and apparently not a planned purchase, just snapped up since it was available. Very nice, I must say. Couldn't believe my eyes when I saw it. Knew it wasn't available yet.

But no big deal. I have probably the only available model of a phone with a qwerty slider running an official ICS update. Sony came thru with the update last week. Its funny coz the Ericsson has been dropped from the boot screens :D

Good upgrade. Good new features, but lots of the existing functionality works the same way, so don't have to learn new ways of doing old things. Only concern is some instability with the Gallery app.

Sonyericsson was a joint venture between Sony and Ericsson of Sweden, I think Sony completely bought over the brand in 2012 march so from now on all the models released will only be called "SONY" no Ericsson part :)

I'm actually going to downgrade to a Samsung Y Duos. Reason being that that particular phone supports 3G for both SIMs and has basic social networking stuff and mail support including activesync. The Transformer is used for everything else, including angrybirds, and the look and feel is better than ever with the ICS update.

Samsung has announced the quite fascinating Galaxy Note 10.1 for those who are interested in that kinda thing. I'm certainly looking forward to more info.

Also, I think my next upgrade might be a Motorola Photon Q. Moto doesn't have the best of histories, but with Google taking over, I have hopes it will improve. And that phone is an impressive piece of kit.

I use the Sensation XE. B*tch on battery but a very user friendly device. My 02 cents is to test an HTC and then decide.

I'm in love with the HTC Incredible S, which I bought rather 'accidentally'. Always a Sony fan, earlier wanted an Arc S but after trying that a bit I thought the HTC was better.

im not a big fan of the UI of motorola..

i used a Motorola Photon 4G a.k.a Motorola Electrify for some time (bought one for buying and selling purpose).

just didnt felt right at all,

the flasher light is too yellow, less settings in the camera.. the menu is similar to the HTC sense.

but on the plus side. it does have better build quality
