Might go for the organiser as could really do with that at work. Bit of web work wifi or 3G. Used the camera on my old phone a fair bit. Sadly lost it on Friday. I did use the gps for some ride logging.
My sister os on a 3G she says its a bit slow launching stuff but does the jobPosted 6 years agoCregMember
Having owned the old 3G I would say Android. I had a 3G that had been updated to iOS4 and it was a nightmare to use due to being unbelievably slow. I looked into rolling it back to the older iOS3 but apparently most of my apps would stop working so I didn’t even bother trying.
I have only played with Android phones (friend has the HTC Wildfire) but found it a lot quicker and better to use.Posted 6 years agostumpyjonSubscriber
Agree with all the above and it couldn’t have come at a better time. I ditched my iPhone 3G last weekend, got an htc sensation, the difference with the 3G is astounding. Older iPhone also have a tendancy to slow down, loading apps etc.
Assume you’re going pay as you go? Might be worth a contract, had my iPhone on O2 PAYG, cost me £ 10 per month for a data connection alone, calls on top. The HTC was only £ 30 on a 2 year contract at £ 27 per month. Already finding I’m using significantly more data than with the iPhone as the internet is now actually usable.Posted 6 years agochrisjnrMember
If your only alternative to the iPhone is the Wildfire, I’d go for the iPhone… you will get frustrated, if you’re going for a HTC, In my experience; has to be Desire or upward… Had the HD- replaced a 3G and was duly replaced 2 weeks later by a 3GS, was great bar the awful battery life. If you can get a good deal on a Sensation (as above ^) or a Desire HD, even better, as shops are going to try and make room for the newer Sensation XE and formerly the HD, in anticipation of the Sensation. You’re bound to get a good deal if you shop aboot.
You can’t go far wrong with an iPhone, and as long as you don’t download ludicrous amounts of apps, it runs very smoothly. Only real downside being the lack of compatibility with the latest software, ie. from iOS4.3 upward 😕Posted 6 years ago
Hmm too much to think about
problem is wanting the world but not wanting to really spend money
I could go contact at say £20 a month. I currently top up £1o for the data but don’t use the money on calls.
Over 2 years
wildfire at £170 and £10 a month is £410
Contract at £20 per month is £480 so its still more even with a free phone
But I’ll look out for sensation and desire dealsPosted 6 years ago
