just want something cheap and quick. if it's an OK smart phone then its good enough. this one? quick please!
getting the 7 as a phone might be a pretty baller move
looking for something approximately one tenth of the price to replace a stolen, contracted iphone
Worth every penny of the £900 or whatever the fuck it costs.
because Apple inventing colours is the single greatest thing ever and totally worth the £500 premium over most high end smartphone on the market today... no matter how many awards they win the iPhone will ALWAYS be the best phone in the world because Steve Jobs (even if he is dead).
this what #UKStorm2013 was warning against
Because the iPhone is TOTALLY worth every penny and I will not hear a bad word being spoken about it.
they're dead easy to use and pretty reliable. make sure it has a decent amount of internal (not external/SD card) storage though - my old one had fuck all and it made life very hard after a few months.
It is a Windows Phone but if you're just using it for basic functions (calling people, texts, emails, web browsing, maps, fb) then it has everything you need. It's quite nice as well, the only thing more attractive is the price.
just doesn't have the widespread app support.
Runs like a charm on lower-powered phones, so the Lumia 520 is a pretty credible rival to the iPhone 5 imo - at a fraction of the price. Same screen size but no front camera (whatevs). Plus it syncs with your Xbox account, so you can accumulate cheevos on the go, which is vital.
The 'not enough apps' thing just isn't a real concern in my experience. Apart from the odd game or two, there isn't really anything missing anymore.
- Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Skype, Kindle, iPlayer, Angry Birds - all there.
- YouTube, Instagram, Vine - there are third party apps (Metrotube, 6Tag, 6Sec) that are at least as good as official ones, if not better because they have no ads!
- That said, the only app that is missing is, unforgivably, Snake. If I buy a Nokia, I want Snake, goddammit.
You also get indie points for a) vintage and b) hardly anyone else has one.
