Thank you guys and my friends on Facebook for your input on which smart phone I should get. I loved my HTC Inspire, but it got sick and was about to die–I had it for over 2 years, and still did not use all of the features. I had, however, gotten to where I could do “thisisyourbestyear” on it. It took me a while before I decided to buy the HTC Inspire, it fit my needs at the time.
That’s how I am; I don’t just go out and get something because it is new. I try to make purchases that make sense because I know I will keep whatever it is for a while.
Once upon a time we purchased phones because of the way they looked, since they basically did the same things. I had to have Motorola Razr in red of course. I really didn’t care what it could do–it looked good. It still looks good to me.
Now purchasing a smart phone is like purchasing a car (Big White, my car has over 180,000 miles and I’m praying for another 20,000). You must make an informed choice. Phones today do this and that, but what are you going to use the phone for?
I’m going to use my phone for everything. I wanted something that was a cross between a tablet, laptop and cell phone. Since just about everything can be done electronically, I know I must keep up-to-date. I still have my Dell PC which sits on my desk with my comfy chair, and my cute Dell XPS 13 laptop which I truly love.
I decided after much research on the Samsung Galaxy Note II. It has everything and way more than I want–I love the keyboard. I haven’t had it long enough to tell you all the bells and whistles that it has, but the ones that I have played with are just great.
As time goes on I will keep you informed on how well the Galaxy Note II and I are doing. I know that real soon there will be a Galaxy Note III, IV and even V and beyond. This does not matter to me because I purchase for the long run; just because they make it, I don’t have to be the first on the block to have it.
Remember “thisisyourbestyear”. Make informed decisions–as stated before as women of a certain age, we must watch our finances.
