This is not my normal kind of post for this site, but figured it is tech related. Also anytime you talk to someone about their phone it can spark some good discussions. I’ve been an iPhone user for the past couple of years and before that I had an Android phone in the early 2.x days.
My iPhone 4S was getting old and and lets face it I had a case of hardware envy. I really liked how easy to use the iPhone was and with my entire family being on Apple devices communication and services was a great fit. But I’m a bit geeky and like to experiment with things and that is part of what drove me to change. Well that and the small screen and slowed pace of innovation by Apple.
What phone did I get?
After spending a week or so looking at the options I ended up choosing the Note 3 from Samsung. I know, its a huge phone but I really don’t talk much these days with the phone to my ear. So I was not too concerned about the size. It has even been called my small TV phone a co-worker. Had I not been limited to Verizon as my service provider my other choice would have likely been the Nexus 5 from the Google Play store.
One of the main goals for the new phone was something with a larger screen and more power. The Note 3 blows booth of those requirements out of the water. It is fast and packed with memory and with a screen measuring in a 5.7″, it really is almost a small TV.
While I’m still adapting to the change in phone size, it is so much more enjoyable reading news and emails on the phone. I can now consume more media that I would have had to wait for computer access to catch up on before.Read More
