Whats the point ? Tablets run the same operating systems and are made by the same companies as phones

Not all tablets, you can get some of the cheaper ones to run linix and some of the more expensive ones to run windows, and if you want real cheap you can always get a blackberry tablet they are actually pretty solid little units, or step it up and use a laptop or even a raspberry pi..

Some facts and advice I am going to take from the recent posts

I will stick to Samsung since as I know their S8 phone STILL offers the headphone jack so I can use my best MARLEY earphones  Cool

Miss Cuddly (Sammi) Can I suggest the Pixel 2 phone by Google if you think if you don't want another Samsung smartphone? Otherwise I think Samsung are still on the top of quality as my s4 is still working fine after 4 years (will be 5 in the new year of May!!) and I will continue to use it until the day I can no longer do so. Honestly as long as my s4 can run FB, play YT videos of Aphex Twin audio videos, text on SMS, WhatsApp and Viber, run SoundCloud then I am flipping fine and the best thing is that many apps on Google Play store can run happily on my 4 year old S4  Cool also the flipping camera is still meeting my standards especially when going out and about taking pics of lighting that I post here  Cool

As for the portable Apple products I like their iPods, I still use my green coloured iPod Nano 7th Gen, its much better than having a phone size iPod Touch (like iPhone minus calling feature) because all I want to do is to load up my albums of Coldplay, Aphex Twin, The Prodigy and various electronica dance music and being so small its a pleasure to take around along with my s4 phone. I know smartphones can store music too but having it on separate iPod is better for two things

1: You can normally take photos with your smartphone whilst listening on your iPod
2: You save hella lot of space on your phone memory by having iPod as your music device source
3: You don't stress the battery duration of your phone

And with iPods is like a total blessing when coming to situations where unpleasant noises are present such as small children/babies crying, it is so distressing for me  Embarrassed especially on the bus and train. Sometimes going on the top deck of a double decker London bus is the way forward as most mothers have their babies on buggies and they have to stay on the ground deck.

My S3 mini is actually coming up for three years old, and as long as it keeps on going I'm happy. I've never been one for updating their handset as soon as a new 'improved' phone comes out. One of my mottos in life is 'If it 'ain't broke don't fix it.'

Agreed, I tend to prettymuch use devices till they croak, my computer is coming on 5 years now... hoping to make it last a long time to come...

I currently have an Iphone6s because I value the aux jack that the 7 seems to lack
I pay for it every month, ran by sprint unlimited data
It's black and still good

Hi all

For my 22nd bday gift I got the Samsung S9 phone and it is so brilliant with camera, screen and everything you expect from Samsung. I still got my S4 phone which is now stored in its original box from 5 years ago. I would have used it for another 3 years if I didn't smash it's original screen! Oh well the S9 feels fresh and like a new start to everything!

Great thing about the S9 it still has the aux jack for earphones!

I agree, in my opinion I don't see why people get new phones so often other than they're on contracts for two years or they break them. To me if it does what you need, there's really no need to keep up with the newest model.

I have a Samsung Galaxy 3 series phone myself (it's my first phone I got) and it works okay. Although, I don't use it for a whole lot of intensive apps besides some games and listening to Pandora. I do take all of my photos on Lighting Gallery with it. It could use a new battery, but I may get a new phone eventually, I just don't see a real need to since it still does what I need.

Due to the poor quality screen replacement I was sort of forced to retire early the s4 because the battery kept running low no matter how you do to slow it down it's because the replacement screen was a basic LCD one with poor sensitivity and energy wasting compared to AMOLED. I was really upset when I broke the original S4 screen but it's good to replace your phone every half decade or more. I'm not these ppl who replace their phones after 2 years unless in extreme situations I have to.

And I will not go to an iphone not any time sooner

I'm with you there I will only replace my phone when it dies completely I have just replaced the battery in my four year old S3 mini and it's as good as new. There is no way that I will touch any apple product.

Well I can't change your opinion, you're probably a Samsung person, I'll admit Samsung does make good stuff
But personally I use Apple because I'm used to it, you're probably the same way with Samsung.

We don't like Apple for several reasons. One of which is they don't allow user customisation, whereas our Samsung kit lets you do all sorts of stuff to modify how it looks and operates. Also, Apple stuff seems to be rather prone to breakage, drop an iPhone and the screen shatters, drop a Samsung and it bounces..!

Then there's the thing about them accessing your device and downloading stuff to it unauthorised and unasked. There was a case a few years ago that made the news when everyone with an iPhone got sent a copy of someone's album whether they'd asked for it or not. And only recently there was a case on the TV here where a guy got locked out of ALL his Apple devices because of a problem with ONE of them. They're still trying to figure that one out, last I heard.

No thanks, give me any Android device over Apple any day.

If there wasn't the option of Android as an OS and I was forced to choose between Windoze and Apple, I would go with Windoze...

I feel just the same.
But I'd really want to disable all the spyware built into it.
(something that Apple devices have as well, its just never mentioned)

I've currently uses this phone:


Despite made in China, it could be my ultimate regular cell phone, which isn't a smartphone. But the crap Net Phone company, put a crappy software with a lots of bugs:
1. SIM contacts are limited to 6-7 letters only.
2. SMS message sending: cursor moves right when you press left button and the opposite.
3. The back screen turning off several seconds after turning on when receiving a call or an SMS, so I had to disable auto answer so I can use the front screen to see who call me.
There are other bugs in the software of the phone.

When I sent it for fixing these bugs, instead of performing firmware update, they simply replaced the whole complex of the phone, and put a crap battery, which didn't last long, so I had to buy a new battery (Nokia BL-5K 3.7V), and even now I have the feeling that the battery drops to one line very fast.
