Re: which smartphone?

The app market might be somewhat different for the three, but which phone got the apps you will use?

All three phones are good. Heck, all the older phones of each (not sure about the Blackberry, not available over here) are more than good enough too. You will pay a lot for the newest thing, and as with guitars - buying new stuff means you will take the value hit.

This comes from a guy who got his first smartphone at 34. I could easily survive without it. Don't be a social media addict! Instead of dragging social medias with you all the time, you'd be better off with a guitar! OK, enough of the "old man rant".

Re: which smartphone?

Unless you have a lot of friends with Blackberries who use BBM all the time don't even look at the Z10.

Iphone still rules all and is better at playing music as well so unless it's much more expensive than the Samsung get the Iphone.

Euphor, I only got my first truly smart phone in 2010 but have had Palms, Clies and Blackberries since 1999 and I'm not sure I could have managed without them.
Ten years ago I had to carry three devices with me.

I see. We had phones at home, internet available on the old desktop computer, and we learned to whistle for music on the go. The downside to it was that we had to face other people every day.

Re: which smartphone?

i figured i should hold the guitar "limit" at 6 until i move out and have some room of my own to store them, and besides, i dont really think im "good enough" at guitar for me to buy an expensive-ish guitar... but, if i had more room, i would want a guitar over a phone any day. btw, the "old man rant"/advice was apprieciated.
