My mobile phone is nearly dead.
« on: December 15, 2013, 04:30:04 PM »
My mobile phone is nearly dead. My battery is empty after +/- a half day in idle mode, the plug for ear duds sometimes only sends the send through one side, the back can't be fully attached to the front and my text messages disappear on me.

So, in other words, I need a new mobile phone. Any suggestions? I would love an Android phone but my budget isn't that big...

(And yes, I copy pasted this from my Facebook. What gives.)

How big is your budget exactly? Android phones can get pretty cheap depending on the model.

I got my HTC Desire on android for under £100 I think. It emulates NDS games fine too, I'm very happy with it.

Why not the Sony Phones? Sony Xperia L comes with great specs for an affordable price ;)
And it's Android + Sony, it can't get any better xD

For the record, Sony phones do use Android as their OS. But, like HTC, they don't use vanilla Android.

The mrs has a Samsung and it's easily as good as my phone, I'd have one of those no problem.

EDIT: When you get your android google "DraStic apk". It's a very good DS emulator, I use it all the time.

One of the providers here has a subscription model where I can buy the Samsung Galaxy SIII Mini with a 50% discount. I'm rather interested.

The Galaxy SIII is a great phone. The only issue I ever had experienced when having a Galaxy is the battery life. It started out great but it got very bad very quickly. I'm taking from ~15 hrs to ~2hrs of usage within a year. iPhones on the other hand from my experience (Which was the iPhone 4) go from about 10 hrs to 5 in 2 yrs. and my 5s still gives me 15 hrs after about 3 months

Honestly, I think iPhones are too expensive. I don't really care about them. Android is where it's at <3

Agreed.
Androids are better in so many ways. (I'm not talking about hardware, I mean software)

The S3 is an older version, so it shouldn't be 50% off the full price but off the current value.

I wasn't trying to convince you to buy one. I was just using the iPhone to compare to the Galaxy battery life, since I'm am not accustomed to any other phone.

even better lol

Honestly, I think that there are better phones out there even in hardware which you can buy for cheap.
