What you all rocking now?
« on: April 25, 2013, 12:07:19 PM »
Been an age since I last visited and was wondering what toys everyone has?

Me?

Nexus 4 - primary phone. Favourite Android phone I've owned so far.
iPhone 4 - one of my two work phones. Not a bad little phone.
Nokia Lumia 620 - the second phone I use for work and I prefer it over the iPhone. Such a great little handset for the price.
iPad Mini - been hooked on it since I got it. The perfect size and performance for me.






What's everyone else using these days then? 8)

damn those are nice.         only thing i have, are mine and my lady's Galaxy 3's.   And now the 4's are around the corner.   I kind of want one of those Notes though... those look nice.

I too would like an ipad someday.   maybe next tax returns.   that, and a front yard fence for the boys.. so they don't run in the street.

Haha, a fence...

I've still got my HTC Evo 4G.  The wife has the Iphone 5.  

I was thinking about getting the Iphone 5, and will eventually.  But it seems to be the same ol thing with phones.  If I get a new one it will be all cool and shit, but then I just go back to what I would do with any phone now.  Phone calls, camera, mail, texts and internet.  Thats about it... you can add in a bunch of other apps and crap but any phone can do it all.  So why spend the extra cash on something that I already have right now.  

I don't need a fence just yet, but there are some other things I would like instead.  Maybe a new Driver... my r5 is kind of dated now.    :drinks2:

Wise move Szabada! If the phone works fine as itis, save the $$$$'s!

The misses recently upgraded from a S3 to the Xperia Z and she does all the same shit on it she did before....

Mid, a front yard fence is definitely a must if needed.  :C

I use a Nokia Lumia 822, just waiting for the 925 to come out unless I see something better.

 :rofl:  I was just thinking how much more powerful my phone is compared to my first computer.

I think I'd love a Note II but the wife would kill me if I bought one....

Samsung Galaxy S3. Absolutely love it.

I came from  a Motorola Droid X which I loved too but it started to act up a bit. Recently I started clearing it out and plan to use it as a second alarm clock.

The S3 though is badass. Best phone I've used. The new S4 doesn't have me drooling but I heard good things about the HTC One

There are some damn fine gadgets in use here! I still keep drooling over the HTC One and got to play with a friends S4 the other day (DAT SCREEN!). Having the itch for yet more gadgets has to end.

My missus did buy me this the other day.


With Google IO due at the end of the month and a new Nexus 7 rumoured, I think I'll be close to divorce if I take the plunge on a new tablet... :(

For an ignorant old man like myself who can't stand these smart phone things, especially their damn touchpads, the Note II is pretty sweet.

The Nexus 4 is not a bad phone at all and you'll get all the android updates as soon as google pushes them out.

Going from an S3 to the n4 however, you may notice the camera isn't as good and the lack of an SD slot could be an issue if you need lots of storage.

Over 3G at home I get 20-23 meg on my nexus whereas my old S3 could only pull down 10 meg.
