I need some help.
I have fallen out of love with my Blackberry.
When I went on phones4U.co.uk on a bit of a whim last year and got myself a great deal on the new Blackberry Torch I was pretty pleased with myself. I had a touch screen and a keyboard – I was king of the world. But apart from that, what exactly is it good for? The longer I’ve had it, the more I’ve come to realise just how hopeless it has become next to other phones.
It just doesn’t do anything.
People are always telling me about great new apps I can get to do this and that, and I keep having to say ‘I can’t get that on my Blackberry’. My hopeless, crappy Blackberry. While Boyfriend is playing Need For Speed in HD on his HTC I get Shoppers Paradise. I mean look at it – it’s hardly cutting edge graphics is it?
There is a wordpress app, but it takes so long to load It’s quicker just to switch on the laptop.
I recently downloaded the latest updates for my Blackberry, and that was a complete disaster too – I now have terrible battery life, icons popping up all over the place and a sluggish screen that takes a week or so just to turn around if I move it. Come on Blackberry, what’s the matter with you??
Between us at home, we can’t even figure out how to properly switch it off without taking out the battery. It is ridiculous.
So, I think I can safely say I want a new phone, but what do I get? Bee has an iPhone and Boyfriend uses Android, so I’ve got two different phone camps battling it out for my attention at home – I need some impartial advice.
Which is the best mobile phone for combining work emails, twitter, decent battery life and a good selection of apps, but that doesn’t may me look like a drug dealer?
