“Pretty awesome phone so far, i'm still blown away!”

Written on: 22/08/2011 by virtualmark2 (8 reviews written)

What can i say? Had this phone for over a year now, its never let me down and i feel i should share it with you. I use it daily not just as a phone, but also as:

Satellite Navigation
Internet Browser/Email
Wireless Router
Alarm Clock
Personal Organiser
Calculator
Video Camera/Photo Camera
Dictophone
Skype
Flashlight
Games

Theres more but i'm sure you get the picture. I was chatting to my mate the other day via skype, just using the app on my phone, it was just like a normal phone call except that it was free(i have unlimited data with three). I use Facebook, check the news, google things etc. The sat nav is flawless, even having the flashlight app comes in handy when no light is available! Its the best companion gadget i've ever had, like the swiss army knife of phones. If i have to wait somewhere for a while, i'll just grab my phone and play chess. If i get an appointment, i'll just add it to the calendar and set an alarm. I'm on my laptop at this minute, connected to my htc desire via wifi and using my mobile data connection.

The only small disadvantage to having so much power is the obvious drain on the battery. If you plan on using it as a sat nav, then be sure to invest in a car charger! As far as computing power goes... it does everything i need. I see new phones coming out with dual core processors, do we really need that in a phone?? I wouldn't use this phone as a replacement for my laptop, but its very useful for a bit of mobile internet(i.e a quick search to find a local restaurant phone number). I'd find it a bit of a chore to write a full email, although its possible! Anyhow, i couldn't recommend this phone more, very pleased with it. Plus theres tons of free apps on the android market!
