Gone too

Smartphones in the US

6 posts in this topic

Okay, my LCD display is busted and I have a friend in the US returning in July. Instead of buying a expensive replacement or a humongously expensive new phone here I'll buy something online and send it to him.

Any cool places I don't know where I could get a good deal? Would help me quite a lot. I'm looking at a Galaxy S III right now, nothing too expensive but would accept suggestions I suppose.

As someone who does not have a smart phone (The horror!) I can't help I am afraid, the only places I can think of are amazon, overstock etc.

I suggest buying an iPhone 5, the regular iPhone 5, not the iphone 5s or c. Unless you can somehow get 5s or c a lot cheaper than a regular iPhone 5. if you want to play good games. Samsung Galaxy has good ones, but it's just half of the games that the iPhone has. Very cheap games too, just $1-2 or free when you get a promotion.

Well actually, I'm afraid I'll be dead ten thousand times before I buy something from Apple but thanks for the suggestion. I rarely game on my Smartphone btw, just use it as a general datapad which is actually how I see it, so news, texts and a notebook are the actual primary functions I'd probably get a tablet but a good tablet is out of my budget for (relatively) superfluous items right now.

Times like these I wish I could be of more assistance. Personally I use Nokia Lumia 720 (Windows Phone) and am quite satisfied with it. Granted, there's not a huge app support or following for the OS, but it's still a very good phone and it's battery is also very lasting. Unless you decide to use your full system by doing something rather demanding (i.e. games that take a lot of resources or use a game boy emulator like I do). Has a decent music player which also doesn't drain your battery very heavily. Can go easily up to 3-5 days without charging the phone when listening to music frequently. If left alone, can go up to a week and more.

I'd get a Windows Phone but most apps seem to be unsupported as of yet, anyway time is wearing thin so I might as well buy it off Ebay or Amazon.
