Re: phones

iPhone 5S. Got it last year in May, switching from a Galaxy S4. Had the Galaxy S2 before that and a bunch of Blackberries and Nokias. So far, although limiting in personalizing a lot of stuff, the iPhone does it's job for me (texts, email, WhatsApp constantly, Instagram occasionally). Opening apps without lag and I don't need to use an app killer software or clear my cache/ etc. frequently.

Re: phones

I thinking whether I should get the OnePlus One.
It kicks the iphones arse and costs just half of that, but then again, I don't feel like I need such a device.

Note 4, 2 day+ battery life, ability to have multiple apps open at once (can listen to music on youtube while using the browser) 1440p screen, AMAZING camera, sd card slot, removable battery.

There's too many quality control issues with the oneplus one

Re: phones

Razr Maxx (xt910).
I've dropped it countless times, its gone through several OS' (OTA ICS, KitKat, Jellybean, as well as CM11 and now CM12), I've bricked it a couple of times and had to directly charge the battery once (bricked while no battery left). It's covered in masking tape to keep bits falling off. It's great. Have no intention of buying a new phone.

Re: phones

iphone 5. Its boring but..its a phone. It makes calls/sends texts/receives emails. I'll probably get a 6 when I'm due for a new phone in 2 weeks because so far I've had much better luck in terms of quality with Apple than any other brand for phones. Everything I've owned from HTC, LG, Samsung, RIM, etc has been falling apart before the 2 year mark. My iphone 5 is fine minus the slightly reduced battery life.

My wife has the 2013 Moto X, probably the nicest Android phone I've ever laid hands on. That drive Assist feature is fucking cool as hell.

A colleague got the 6 and holding it was such a pain cos I'd get a constant feeling it'll drop or slip from my hands. I like the build of the 5S, only thing tough from a S4 switch was getting used to a narrower keypad and not being able to use Swype. Apple now has Swype but it's not as good as the Android version.

I had the same issue with the 4 and 5. I just bought a case for it and its been fine since though. I'll do it again with the 6 and probably be happy. The 6 Plus looks too big though, no interest in that.

I've got the 2nd gen Moto X, it's fantastic. amazing battery life, speed is unstoppable, and it actually feels like it's built to last. first time i put it in my hands i was amazed at how sturdy it was, especially the metal rim around the entire phone. only downside is the camera could be better.

Kicks the iphones ass? Didn't know you could get iOS on anything that's not Apple hardware.

Comparing phones by the tech spec is retarded.



cheers
