I sometimes think that choosing your mobile phone is as hard a decision as choosing the right place to live, or the right person to be with.
You need something that is going to fit you well, have functions or quirks that are compatible with you and something that you are going to be able to spend the next two years with. It's a hard choice when you think about it.
Here is where I am stuck. I currently have a Blackberry Bold 9900. I adore it. Well, I say that, but what I mean is that my heart adores it, but my head knows that it isn't the right match for me. I have said as much about people in the past.
I love the keyboard and it is an idiosyncratic little thing; it fits my personality well in that respect. I don't care that it isn't the most popular phone on the market, or that some people laugh when I say I have one, they can bugger off quite frankly. It's my baby and I love it.
But. There is a but here. It isn't suited for what I want. For that, I need either a Samsung Galaxy S4 or a Note 2.
So here is what I came up with. I am writing down everything I need from the phone and will see if it takes me to any sort of decision.
Minutes - unimportant, I rarely use more than 60 minutes a month.
Texts - need unlimited.
Apps - must have the Blogger app.
This is an important one. My home broadband situation is that I am on a mobile dongle. This isn't about to change anything soon which means that I am stuck with 3 gigs of internet usage available there. I need a phone with a larger screen that is going to be more useful for a more prolonged internet usage and with that, I need more than just the 750mb I currently have on my plan.
I am veering towards the Note 2 at this stage, but we will see what I think when I get hold of them both in the shop. This is of course only if they manage to wrestle my beloved Blackberry from me....
Sorry by the way for wittering on about phones on here. I was going to do a regular list offline, but when I blog I feel like I am talking at the same time which makes it a little more of a fun process!
Here's something funny to make up for it:
