    NEW SMARTPHONE(OT)

    I need a new cell phone and have just compared and contrasted the options and that exercise left me completely confused.

    Looking for suggestions.

    Edison, that magnificent b, saved us from an obvious recession coming by way of the Edison Indicator, which is still UNDEFEATED!

    Keep the change you filthy animals!

    • I just switched from a Motorola Droid to iPhone. All my family members now have an iPhone.
      When my daughter takes a picture of my grand daughter, I immediately get sent a copy.
      iPhone's have a longer life span. Older ones can be used as iPods and have good resale value.
      There's something magical about Apple products.
      When I buy a family member a new Apple product, they feel special.
      I doubt they would get that same feeling with a non-Apple brand name.

      Sentiment: Strong Sell

      • One thing that's magical about Apple products is that used in a family of Apple products, they amplify each devices user-friendliness. I have a database & report presentation software platform (Bento by Filemaker, an Apple company), that operates on my iPhone, iPad, and MAC. Changes updated wirelessly. Seamless inoperability. Fast, painless graphics transfers. All software for $60. I haven't tried Apple TV, but likely some interesting capabilities there as well. If you make the switch, then it pays to go all in, with a MAC/MACbook as well. They work well together. Incidentally I started with the first MAC made (1984), then migrated to PC when it got long of tooth, and have returned to MAC over the last few years, now with a dead PC still on my desk. I don't miss it at all.

    • My wife has an iPhone and I don't like it. I swapped my Motorola Atrix 4G for another Android -- the Samsung Galaxy S3. I use Gmail, browsing, the camera, and some apps. Very happy so far.

      Sentiment: Strong Buy
