I’ve been fairly happy with my HTC Desire S for a couple of years but it’s now getting slow and hanging quite a lot – it looks like it’s just getting old and struggling to run the latest apps.
So, what to replace it with?
I do like HTCs though the replacement doesn’t have to be HTC.
It’s got to be android
A decent camera would be very good, particularly one that takes multiple pics quickly (so you can choose the best one – very useful with kids!)
32Mb or micro SD compatibility
Robust – I’m sure I’ll drop it from time to time…
I like the HTC One XL (or X or X+) but they’re bigger than I’d really like (and same for the S3 which is big too) but most of the smaller screened phones seem to be more basic (in terms of spec) which I reckon means that they’ll last less time (until they also start to struggle/get slow).
So, any suggestions for alternatives?Posted 4 years ago
Yeah, I like the look of the experia Z though I read that the Sony version of Android doesn’t have things like the pull down notification bar?
Not interested in an iphone thanks. Had one, didn’t get on with the ‘my way or the highway’ approach (even though the ‘my way’ way was usually pretty good). Besides, I don’t want this to be yet another tedious Apple Vs Android thread ta 😉Posted 4 years agocoolhandlukeSubscriber
Really like my HTC 8x Windows phone but sadly its bluetooth won’t connect to my car hands free kit, just like loads or other car drivers, beemers, fords, audis, mercs and so on but seemingly mainly beemers.
Arranged to change it for an Iphone that will work with my car, just as the mods here suggested to me when I was looking, Mods are always right.Posted 4 years ago
Ooh! Interesting – I’ve never really liked Motorolas and that one does look a bit odd but now they’re running android I’d certainly consider one. The reviews sound pretty positive too. Any negatives? The reviews suggest that some apps don’t work with it (because of the intel chip) – is that something you’ve found at all?
Also, how’s the camera? I’m not expecting an SLR but I use my phone for most pics now so don’t want anything rubbish.Posted 4 years ago
i never used to like motorolas but this one runs pretty much stock android, 4.1.2.
no negatives for me so far, i haven’t found any apps that don’t work with it, but i don’t use a wide variety, mainly just use it as a phone and for browsing, facebook, music and a couple of games. i share its internet connection with the tablet for anything else really.
as for the camera, the photos seem pretty good, but i’m no expert, you’ll be able to glean more info from reviews. it does have a dedicated camera shutter button which you can press and it instantly switches to camera mode.Posted 4 years agospangelsaregreatMember
Had a Razri for a couple of months now and just got the Jellybean upgrade. Great phone, ideal size, very fast, good camera.
The only thing that has not worked for me is iPlayer but I can get TV using mPlayer and still get 4OD. Sky Go has stopped working with the Jellybean upgrade but there is a fix on the way.
There is also a fix to get iPlayer to work here http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1967080
