Keb wrote:Hey yeah so my Xperia X10 battery is up to its old tricks (doesn't last long, dies quickly even though I bought a new battery). Thus, I am fed up. Instead of waiting another year for an upgrade and I refuse to pay the early upgrade fee, I think I will buy a phone from an outside retailer or seller and just switch. I still want a droid (fucka blackberry and iphone) so I'm wondering which droid phone to go with. I don't have a small budget, I'm willing to pay up to $500 for a good phone.
Any tips? I'm looking at: Motorola Droid Razr or Samsung Galaxy S II (whatever the latest model is). I will also go with another one if I like it.
Help me find a phone!
Samsung Galaxy S II. From everything I've read it's one of the best you can get here, which is the truly important thing to remember.
Here, we don't get all the same models as in the US plus they all don't come with the latest OS due to the SPs being lazy assholes who love to make the hardware and software proprietary to the few services they bother to provide. You'll also need to note which SP has which specific model, service, billing, etc. ... or you will be screwed. The Samsung Galaxy series is pretty much there with them all and has had good local reviews, but as with an iPhone... get some of the power/app managers to turn stuff off and off when you know you don't need it at that point to keep the battery going. All smartphones have this problem but then, how is a manufacturer to know what your specific usage will be?
Droid is barely here.
Mind you, you could go to any number of phone stores, as in the various Chinese malls, and have a selection of phones. But good luck getting them in English or full working with the services of your SP.
