Cellphones 2015
« on: March 09, 2015, 03:51:47 AM »
I wondered what everyone was using these days.  Last week I upgraded to an Sony Xperia Z3 and it's pretty neat.

Nearly a 21MP camera, 4K ultra high video recording, a sound system that is so good it can crack its own screen, Snapdragon 2.5 GHz Qualcomm Quad-core processor, 5.2" Full HD screen, PS4 remote play, completely waterproof and dustproof (great for my line of work) and it even has some Sony only software that is actually useful.

I also now get extra fast 4G which equates to around 20 megabit on the move.

My, how things have changed.
Don't put off until tomorrow, what you can put off until the day after.

iPhone 6 Plus.  I don't make many actual phone calls and the big screen is great for my needs.

Damn! that's some value right there. I hope my son doesn't get wind of it.

Some people find it more convenient than kneeling.

Ah yes, the French.

comes with most languages.If you factory reset then youtube is your saviour ;D

nope you can buy a replacement. On my Inew v3 the only option is a 1830 battery, although a 2300 battery is now available, hope i don’t have to buy a new back to fit the larger battery.
the 1830 lasts me a day easily so im not too bothered.

The only thing that worries me about my Z3 is that the battery is sealed in (it's waterproof so it has to be) so I can't have spares in my pocket in case I need one.  That said, it hasn't run out of power in 6 days and I can always buy a small power pack instead of replacement batteries.

iPhone users seem to live with it without complaining.

I know the 1st Gen iPhones had some battery issues but I think it was all worked out with iOS updates.  I have never had an issue with power unless I'm in a no-signal area for hours (so it constantly searches for a signal).  End of the day, it's not uncommon for me to still have 95% battery left.  I haven't charged my phone for 3 days and I still have 57%.

I made the mistake of showing my son Goldie's phone and now I'm inundated with various deals and schemes from him that would allow £107 to move in his direction.

Why do I do that?  I know I'll have to give in eventually, so why don't I just learn to keep my gob shut!

He'll play the "grades" card no doubt, which is a hard argument to argue.
