Hi guys! I want to ask you guys what would suit me more. I can re-contract on my mobile plan and intend to have a 3G connection and a leading smart phone. You guys get what i mean... rolleyes.gif I currently have no data connection on my iPhone 4. Long story short, 2 years ago, i got a free Nokia C5-03, it magically broke down 1 year later. A few weeks ago, my sis upgraded to an iPhone 5 and handed me her iPhone 4. Having used the iPhone 4 has been very complicated for me. I have always hated Apple (me prefering Windows & Linux). In a nutshell, i find that the iPhone feels like an incomplete product and i have to buy apps just for it to run like i expect a good smart phone out of the box. Dare i say, in terms of functionality and practically, my old Symbian was better. Before i used the iPhone, my friend handed me his Galaxy S3 and everything felt natural and logical. Not like iOS where i had to go through so many things to access something. It feels like everything is all over the place. I have never really tried or meddled with Windows in depth before, but preliminary testing suggest that it feels similar to Android. Navigating it feels as natural and logical as with the S3. Of course, i want to narrow it down to the OS first. I welcome any suggestions on which exact smartphone model to get. To better illustrate my requirements, i have listed down my smart phone needs below: - Needs to be highly customisable (software wise) - Large number of free apps and app support - Must be able to plug-and-play/sync my calendars, emails and contacts with MS Outlook - Better than average battery life - Excellent support and update - Able to accept Micro SD - Be able to have free/support of commonly used apps like WhatsApp, Viber, etc. - Call and SMS reliably as i do this more than using What's app, Viber, etc. - A reliable default alarm clock that lets me type the alarm time (not scroll through some crappy wheel thingy) and set my snooze duration - Write notes, organiser, reminders out of the box - Access MS documents & .pdf for free - Provide productivity tools out of the box. if not, numerous free ones in the store. - Simple, fuss-free, no-frills phone management software - OS can be easily updated everytime a new version is released - OS lasts at least 3 years Things i rarely do on my phone: - Watch movies, youtube - Listen to music - Social networking crap like Facebook, Twitter, etc. - Play games - Take pictures and videos In a nutshell, i need a workhorse phone. Reliable, practical and logical. I come from a background of learning PCs from MS-Dos to Windows to some Linux. Give me a Mac, i totally have difficulties using it. Help me out here guys. I just dont want to commit to an OS that is half-baked/has ZERO support/non-existing mainstream apps. I learnt my lesson when i got my Symbian 2 years ago. Thanks! tongue.gif
BEST ANDROID APPS IN SINGAPORE Background: If you looked around at the IT show or even at major computer retailers these few months, you will notice quite a revolution going on. There are numerous Android devices on the market, ranging from your run of the mill iPhone competitors to things that resemble devices that a decade ago were usually custom made for major sci fi productions or too expensive for mass consumer use (Trivia: There was a functional Fujitsu tablet in the 2004/2005 movie Star Trek Nemesis, which was available commercially) High cost is no longer a part of high technology. You could get a super-powered 12.1 inch Lamborghini-branded netbook at only $800 from last week's IT show. But do you want one? An Android tablet like Motorola Xoom (as reviewed by @mechwira here), the transforming Eee Pad and the more portable and well seasoned Galaxy Tab 7 are easier to use, more power-efficient and much more functional than a Windows netbook. Furthermore, Android is a highly customisable OS that is fully optimised for mobile use. You don't have to mess around like a hacker to get an Android tablet optimised to your liking - you just log on to the Android Market and grab the apps you need. Only problem is, there are so many apps that do the same thing. Which one to use? Some apps even have malicious code that may degrade your phone/tablet's performance. App reviewing is not an easy thing to do. There are today, many international websites catered to listing down the "Best Android Apps of them all". However, many of them are geared towards an American or European market, and many such articles are outdated or were not written for the kind of intensive mobile productivity tasks that I use my Galaxy Tab for. So, why not start a SBF Android apps review thread? You can post your favourite apps, and I will aim to review one app every few days. I spent about two months seeking out applications that are basically, functional and do not consume much battery power. It's actually strange but true that certain so called "Battery Saving" apps are responsible for cutting a device's battery lifetime by as much as 50%, because they make the same mistake as some real-life managers do - they micromanage every bit of the device's function, causing it to stall... Stay tuned then for a list of apps recommended for Singaporean lifestyle and motoring In the meantime - I have already written some posts about app management, Elixir widgets to create control panels, and how to pick a good external battery for your tablet.
