Righteo, your going to get sick of me and my stupid questions, but I kinda like your impartial advice, so hey!
I at the moment have a blackberry which I adore, but its battery is slowly dying, and I am going to replace it with an android. I can't tell you why. But I don't want an iphone, and I have a bit of a problem with Simpsons Tapped Out ( I won't go to rehab, I enjoy it too much) So, its got to be android.
Now, I am stuck.
At the moment I carry around with me a kindle, a samsung galaxy tab and my phone. I would like to reduce this down, so I am happy to have a bigger phone, so I can do without the tab in my handbag.
I have been looking at the Sony Z3 or the HTC One M8. Is there a positive or a negative to either of these? Would I be better waiting for a kitkat phone?
My data useage on my blackberry is low low, but I am worried when I move over to an android it will go through the roof because my sister that that problem with hers.. However, most of the time I am on the wifi at home.
So many questions, so little answers.
My requirements are
- lets me play simpsons tapped out
- lets me use instagram
- has a big screen
- comes in a nice/girl colour OR has a nice coloured case which is made by the same brand of the phone. Id on't want no £1.99 **bleep**e off of ebay... (this is one of the reasons I am tempted by the M8)
Solved! Go to Solution.
See, this annoys me, a BlackBerry user that is being forced to Android because O2 refuse to stock BlackBerry despite customer demand!
My advice? Go to Carphone Warehouse and get the BlackBerry of choice. If you want to stay with O2 as your service provider then you will be able to get an O2 contract there.
Your data usage on your current Blackberry will be low as I am assuming its an old Blackberry and will still use BIS (Blackberry Internet Service). BIS compresses your data, meaning when you move to a phone that doesn't have it, Android, BlackBerry 10 or otherwise, your data usage will sky rocket! Be very wary of this!
The advice PapaDug is offering is a very good way to go, should you want to stay with Blackberry. I'm not all that familiar with them, but I believe they are now offering a phablet sized phone which might suit your needs. Should you wish to explore the possibility of Android, you might want to take a look at the Samsung Galaxy Note 4, which might also be a good fit for you.
By the way, the Sony Xperia Z3 and the HTC One M8 are both using KitKat as the OS at the moment, and it seems fairly likely that they will be upgraded to Lollipop when it becomes available, as will the Note 4.
