So I'm looking to get a new phone.
My current phone is a HTC Trophy 7 (a.k.a. HTC Sparc). The phone is no longer compatible with the network I am on.
I'm looking at 3 options:
Nokia Lumia 920: http://www.nokia.com...phone/lumia920/
Samsung Galaxy S3 (NOT the 4G version): http://www.samsung.c...lobal/galaxys3/
Motorola Razr HD: http://www.motorola....D,en_US,pd.html
To preface this, I WILL NOT BUY AN IPHONE. I would however like some advice as to which way you all think I should go. Price isn't important as all of these phones are free on my contract.
So here's where I am at the moment.
Ecosystem, I'm already on WP7, LTE, Battery Life, Nice Design, Good (basic) voice control (for calls and messaging in my car), wireless charging (kinda meh).
App ecosystem blows, sub-par multi-tasking, No replaceable battery, dual core.
App ecosystem, compatible with my email etc, Battery life, Good community support (CM10 etc), strong processor, tons of ram, good storage.
Sub-par shipping ROM, Most of the big features are specific to the rom, Screen is a bit meh, Voice control appears hit and miss at best.
App ecosystem, compatible with my email etc, BIG Battery life (25% more than both phones in battery size), really nice screen.
Sub-par shipping ROM, Voice control appears hit and miss at best, It's a Motorola, dual core,
I use my phone to make phone calls a lot. I text a lot, but I'm pretty easy on my data usage (I'm mainly using wireless). I need to be able to use voice control via bluetooth in my car. I don't really stream media, I don't listen to music off of it unless I am running. I don't need LTE and I'll rarely be in locations that support it. I won't touch the GS3 4G because it has enormous battery drain issues.
I'm a bit shy of going WP8 due to what happened with WP7. I really like the voice control (it works well, reads me my messages and lets me reply etc). The app ecosystem doesn't worry me beyond that the apps I use are generally of lower quality on WP than on Android (Endomondo, FitBit) and it has terrible multi-tasking.
Moving to android isn't so much of a worry so long as voice control is still really good. Everything else I can work around, just not that.
So yeah. Any advice, first hand experience etc would be very much appreciated
