    Looks like I will be going back to an iShit. Work is getting me one and it is hard to pass up having your phone bill paid each month.

    The thought of going back to iShit is making me feel sick in the stomach.

    Weird that they force you on them, figured you'd just be given a phone 'allowance' as such and get whatever you want if you don't want an iphone.

    Get the iphone, sell it, buy an android and put the simcard in an android? Although I'm guessing the iphone has it's own special simcard.

    We just swapped to Nokias at work, spewing.
    We demand an investigation into the replacement of referee Rafshan Irmatov and his departure at a difficult time in such an important match. We ask for an examination of the grassland that was not suitable for the Syrian team, while Australian players seem to be wearing shoes that cling to the long grass, so we saw Syrian players fall during the game, while Australia's players are steady.

    Google is working on a modular phone where you can change out the camera, speakers, ram, storage etc. Looks like it could be pretty cool if they could implement it well.

    It will never take off completely, but good as a niche budget type

    If you buy it outright from anywhere it should be unlocked.

    My HTC One's battery was fucked so this is like heaven - Get a day of pretty heavy usage out of it on ~60% brightness, so would last a day and a half - 2 days with not so heavy usage. Charges really fast as well, which is good.

    discussed these at uni this year, as a method of reducing the volume of electronic waste. Would involved a significant mentality change I guess from the current "need a new phone right away" one, but instead of having whole (perfectly good) phones thrown out as they're replaced, simply upgrading on the go would probably be pretty good at reducing that wastage. Interesting to see it implemented.

    Still on S2 crew checking in. Got my phone when the SIII was just out so was a really good bargain for a plan, then my phone was functioning well last year when my contract was up so rolled over for another year. Probably get a new one in May though, phone is getting a bit shit battery wise and the screen near the home button is fucked.

    This is the cheapest place I've found so far but not sure how reliable: https://www.tigermobile.com.au/index...FQoAvAodIEwAew

    Will the prices drop when the S6 comes out? I really have NFI about the value of phones - as long as it works, it's fine for me - but my piece of crap keeps freezing and closing apps/browser when it feels like. It also turns on the flashlight randomly.

    Price drops just before next edition is announced. So waiting it out for a month and a bit may be worth it.

    Broke my phone in Mexico.

    I think my contract runs out in March, but could get an early upgrade if needed.

    Should I wait for the S6? If not should I just grab an S5? Or are there better androids out there at the moment? A Sony?
