So my current contract is expiring in just over a month and I've realized that for about an extra 10 bucks I can get a smartphone. Just to give a little perspective I'm currently using a basic LG flip phone which has worked fine for me over the past 2 years as I really don't use it for much else other than texting/calls. For the extra 10 bucks I wouldn't mind having the option to keep up on things like sports as I work evenings and it'd be nice to keep up to date on scores and such while at work.
So to cut to the chase I've currently been debating between Windows Phone 8 or Android 4.0.3 (seems to be what's on most phones I've been checking out). I'm looking for something fairly simple and streamlined, and currently have been leaning more towards Windows Phone 8. I've read several reviews and there's been nothing glaring wrong with either choice from what I've seen so far.
I won't really be using it for games at all as I've got a Vita/DS that I use if I want to be gaming on the go. Not a huge facebook or twitter user either so those sorts of things aren't really much of a concern for me either.
I'm just looking for any extra input on things you may not hear much about that people find useful or don't like with regards to both. Anything I should be wary of before dropping down the cash on one of them? Guess I'm just sort of looking for some confirmation that given my basic needs, that this would serve me well for a while.
