Smartphone users... I need to make a decision.
 
So ROGERS called me up last week and said that they were going to give me $400 towards a smartphone when I re-up on another 3-yr contract (which I've been doing for years).

I've never had a smartphone before but from what I've been hearing it seems to come down to 3 choices...


Samsung Galaxy (for Droid users)

Blackberry Bold (for BB users)

I-Phone (for trendy apple people)


Any thoughts on these? Anything that I should know in terms of big pros/cons about each that I should really consider?

Me = lost.

i have an iphone, it sucks as a phone, but awesome for everything else.

Well, I'm an Iphone owner, and I think the best thing about it is Apples replacement policy. Even if the slightest thing happens to it, whether it's internal or external, they'll take your old phone and send you a brand new one. So that's a plus. The app store is pretty cool too.

However, in my opinion, the Iphone isn't very durable. I've heard great things about the Galaxy overall. :police:

I have a blackberry torch and i have to agree. I have problems typing anything out on that keypad. Pretty good phone but as soon as i can upgrade i'm getting an iphone.

are you looking at the latest lines? samsung galaxy is 2 years old, if you have a choice of any phone, for android, a no brainer is galaxy nexus. A pure google experience, everything synced, nothing lost ever again, very free to use, no restrictions, fast updates and will be updated for years to come, dual core, it has it all. IMO right now it is the best phone on the market. Soon the samsung galaxy 3 is coming out, rumoured to have a quad core processor, lte, etc. In terms of hardware, it wins, but in terms of software (which i always need the latest) all google phones. You could just wait a year for the next google phone, but the galaxy nexus is an incredible phone, and i've never had a problem with it.:police:

Hmmm... interesting... so looks like BB may not be too popular at all. From what I hear the only reason that people stay is because of that BBM Messenger thing lol.

I had Samsung Galaxy S2 for a while now and I love it. Don't go blindly chasing after Iphone it's just a brand name, you can get Androids that are better and way cheaper. And blackberry, had it and don't want to own one ever again :mischief:

pzabby 03-20-2012 03:28 AM

galaxy nexus> samsung galaxy s2 lte

you should look into Samsung and HTC phones. Using an HTC I notice it has a better camera, resolution, better graphics, screen durability (doesn't scratch) and the design is better than the recycled iPhone design. Only advantage are the apps... but android is growing at a faster pace and so are their apps.

i'm sure they are great phones but no thanks...a number of years back i had to choose either a BB or iphone...i have never regretted going with the iphone...i've reached a certain comfort level with it now and because of that i'd never go back to anything else...bought one for Sue as well

just my preference obviously :)
