I am coming up to the end of my contract with T-Mobile (UK). They have informed me that I am entitled to an upgrade of my mobile phone next month.
Could anyone recommend a decent phone? I had the samsung tocco, but did not like it (not a lot of features...). I would have loved to get an iPhone but as yet, they are not on T-Mobile I want to be able to install apps...
I want a phone that has WiFi ability, not too fussed about games.
Does anyone have any views on the G1 - believe its also called the 'Google Phone' ...
Thanks in advance.
This is a 3G phone that's clearly designed for accessing the mobile internet, with a large screen, web browser, Google applications and email. But plenty of smartphones can do that. What's special about the G1? Well, of course it's great for browsing the web, with its big screen (3.2 inches is massive, let's face it), ultra-fast 7.2 Mbps HSDPA connection, WiFi and easy text input. It's completely Google flavoured. It's integrated with Gmail, Google maps, Google search, YouTube and Facebook. But this is a double-edged sword.
You can download new apps from Android Market - some free, some you have to pay for. There are going to be loads more developed in the future, so no doubt lots of interesting stuff will be available here. Android is a multitasking operating system, so you can run apps in parallel, like view Google Maps whilst talking on the phone. Be careful though, as the more apps you run, the slower the phone will be and the more likely it is to crash.
Be aware the battery life is very poor !
No predictive text, no voice dialling, no video calling, no MMS video capability, no ability to use the phone as a modem. Pause for breath ... no ability to sync with a PC or Mac, no FM radio, no document viewer, no video recorder!
