Suggest a new phone

Today I managed to pull my phone off a table at college when I reached for my headphones, for about the 10,000th time. This time however the screen managed to detatch itself from the body.. I have a Sony Ericsson W595 slide phone (pictured below).


The phone still works since the cable did not detach, however it wobbles around freely. I can live with this for now, but when I do replace it (which now seems to be much sooner than I originally intended) I plan to replace it with a smart phone.

I like/d my current phone, but it just lacks the horse power to do anything decent with, and even upon receiving texts it would lock up for a short while, especially when playing games/listening to music (I do alot of the latter over mobile games.)

If I can find something I like, which deserves its price tag and I'm happy with it, then I'll go for it.

Can any of you suggest some good smart phones, ones to avoid too perhaps? Thanks <3

Oh and just because I don't play many games on my phone at the moment doesnt mean I'm not looking for a phone thats fun to play games on, if theres decent ones for X, Y or Z OS then I will probably play them much more. =D

  3. I have the iphone 4. It's incredibly sexy, thousands of apps, great camera, incredibly responsive. I haven't been more content with a phone, but hey that's my 2 cents.

  5. Depends on your network. I'm on Verizon and I lurvs my Incredible. I wouldn't mind having the Droid-X, but I've heard they're not the best build devices.

  6. If it's small, or dangles, or comes with no proper case, then it's gonna get wrecked. I yoinked the wrist strap off a Garmin Handheld GPS about 3 months ago.

    Don't have anything to suggest tho. sorry.

  8. iPhone 4 if you can get one. iTunes is shit though. I've been hearing good stuff from Samsung Galaxy as well.

  15. HTC Desire Z or something like that, unless you don't want an Android phone.

  16. my phone is cheap

    want to get a smartphone

  17. HTC are great smartphones, but you need to care them too much, besides perhaps you need a warranty. I bought a pro touch and the screen screwed out.

  18. I have to agree with you here. Check out my other TS blog, Swift Fanatics!

  19. Damn, I wish I could afford a smartphone.

  20. phones are overrated. im still happy with my 8 years old nokia

  21. HTC Desire is great, I have one myself ^^

    ReplyDelete
  22. Yeah, HTC are good phones, but I see your looking for one to play music on etc? For that I wouldn't recommend a HTC/Android device; yeah they're an awesome handheld with unbelievable power such, but the battery power, not so good for what you want. I myself own one. Maybe the phone you had was, and will be, more fit for purpose?

  23. If it's not the iPhone4 then it's the Blackberry 8520, they're phones from completely different markets but they're both very good at what they do so yeah...

  24. I have an HTC Hero, formerly I used the Motorola Droid (Milestone outside the US). Android is hands-down the absolute best OS for a phone there is, period. But the bottom line is that you must have the hardware to run it. There's a new wave of phones started by the HTC EVO that all have large 4-inch+ touchscreen only interfaces and 8mp cameras and Android OS -- get one of those.

    Especially as much as you love tech. Get the best Android phone you can afford.

  25. It's nice to see HTC making such a great impact on the market! But still I would have to stick to my previous issue about battery life, and the lack of it! Keep up the good posting slumph (:

  26. Nokia X6, but if you're US, and don't know how to operate a real phone, get an Android phone, like a HTC.

  27. Samsung Galaxy. My friend has one, and I had my hands on it for a bit. I love it.
