Best smartphone for someone who doesn't do smartphones?
i've had smart phones for years, always had android phones, use my phone mainly for social media work for my business. i knew an android would do what i wanted, but took a risk last week and went with an iphone 5, and trust me to be tied in for 2 years with possibly something that would'nt live up to hype and expectation!
suffice to say, my goodness it is stunning. took a couple of days to get used to the os... but now i'm with it the thing is so much better than the andriods and the integration of fb/twitter/instagram etc is brilliant.
yep, i'm a convert.
Can only give personal opinion from my experience.
Had a Blackberry, Androind and iPhone.
I still have the latter two.
I use the iPhone almost exclusively - it was just so intuitive, picked it up and started using it (bloke see, instructions are just litter!). Everything is just so easy to set up and use.
The Android is ok, just needed me to acquire a bit more knowledge to get it working as I want.
Blackberry, binned it ages ago - way too limited in so many aspects and once I go the iPhone there was no competition.
Downsides of the iPhone, as has been said - battery life can be a bit short if used hard and they do not bounce, not even gently. Fortunately there are loads of replacement front and rear glass and they are cheap as chips on ebay. It's a simple job to swap if you are not totally ham fisted.
Get anything else and be shocked at how often you have to charge it. The guy with an iphone 5 next to me at work is comical in how often he has to charge it, and his net costs are 3 times mine.
From personal experience, a 4 is far better on battery than a 5 - I get around 3 days average use from my 4, 5 needs charging daily. Guess a 4s would be somewhere inbetween! I prefer the 4/4s form factor myself too.
