New Phone

Post  MaX Karnage on Tue Aug 17, 2010 9:55 am

I am getting a new phone and am thinking of going with Verizon and getting the DROID X by Motorola, does anyone have an opinion about that phone? I was thinking about getting an iphone 4 but AT&T does not have the best reception and quality.

I have no experience with the phone, but I know that it has only received mixed reviews. Maybe look at those reviews and see what the cons are and whether or not those cons matter to you. Often times, I find reviewers dock points because a product lacks a feature that I couldn't care less about.

I agree with the last part emphatically. Always read reviews with your own needs in mind.

I am T-Mobile, so no Droids here . . .

The phone is very good, but drains the battery quickly.
Android OS is very solid and the Droid X has all the perks with plenty of screen, features, etc. Check out Endgadget or Gizmodo for your full review.

Does anyone know when the iphone will be available from someone besides AT&T? I have heard rumors of in a few months is this true? if yes I may forgo getting the droid and wait.

RE: the Droid X, funniest thing I heard someone say was something like; ...but why does it have to look like a late '80s Texas Instruments calculator?

I've been using the HTC Incredible on Verizon for a while, battery life is a little lack luster (but I think that can be said for most Android phones out there), otherwise no complaints.

I intend to stick with T-Mobile, but the thing that frustrates me about them is that I have wanted to upgrade my phone for nearly a year, but they never quite seem to have a good enough phone available -- so I am still waiting. I thought that the HD2 would be the one, but then I found out that it is not upgradable to Windows Phone 7. I would not mind giving Android a shot, but none of their Android phones are powerful enough.

I've "toyed" with an HD2, it's a very nice smartphone. The Samsung Vibrant, an Android phone, isn't too bad spec wise (although I've read the interface is not as nice as some other Android phones).

I'd wait if possible, the holiday season is coming, ...something new is bound to drop.

Well, Windows Phone 7 itself is dropping by the holidays. If I stick with Windows, I would not want to buy a phone before it does -- development for older versions of Windows Mobile is going to plummet after that.

I buy a phone that allows me to (wait for it . . .) place and receive calls. I know, it's a novel concept. Money I save on upgrading phones allows me to upgrade watches, which I fully admit is equally frivolous.

I use my smartphone far more for its smartphone/internet functions than I do for making calls. Eve and I have an unlimited family plan, and she ends up using some 2000-2500 minutes every month (hence the unlimited plan.) I rarely use more than 200.

Holy cow Iago!!!

Like you, I barely use my phone. I think last month I used 84 minutes ... But almost a gig of data and that's just email and 'net surfing ... Since so much is blocked at work, it's my Internet lifeline!!

Without checking, I think my "numbers" are very similar. I use a lot more data than voice these days.

I always talk for less than 200 minutes a month, but I spend about the same time checking the time on my watch.
