Do you own a smart phone? Why do you love it?
Yes, I own a smart phone. And most of the time I like it! But I really want something different. And I just can't decide what I want or even why I want something different. I can't wait to read what all of you think. And see what kinds of phone that you love.
I own the HTC Rhyme. It is a 'girly' type phone. It is approximately 5" by 2.5" and very slim. That is mostly what I liked about it. That is was very slim. It came in a box with three accessories: a charging dock, earphones, and a little charm that lights up when you are getting a call. I love the charging dock. When my phone is cradled in the dock it displays the time, a calendar and music. I put it in the dock by my couch every night when I go to sleep.
It has a 5 MP camera that is okay. Takes a decent picture. Not that great really. But then I am not really into taking pictures with my phone. Most of the time I forget that I can take a picture with my phone. I guess that might be due to my age. Cell phones are sure not something that have been around as long as I have.
The battery power isn't that great. I have to recharge it at least daily and sometimes half-way through the day. That little dangling charm is a waste cause I never put my phone in my purse. And those headphone have the worst design ever. They won't stay in my ears at all. And I don't really listen to music on my phone anyway. The screen is decent and I love the virtual key board which is another reason I got the phone. I was still on just a number keyboard and my rate of texting was ever so slow....do you remember? It is 3G so I guess that is good.
I am home most of the time so I can use it with my WIFI but it works better with the 3G. I had to buy a data plan (which irks me) and I never really use any data.
But I am thinking about up-grading. What would you recommend? And why?
