I know there are a million threads about this stuff a month, but I was hoping to get some user opinions and experiences with some of the newer phones out there.
I’m a Verizon customer and currently have a Treo 700p that’s about to die its last death. I’ll need to get a new phone soon, so I was at the Verizon store and checking out new stuff available. My main options seem to be between the Blackberry Storm and Curve. I like the Curve in that it’s pretty similar to the Palm as far as features and UI.
The Storm seems pretty slick, but it also seemed a little slow to use at times and I’ve heard there were problems with the phone already.
They also have some Windows based phones by Samsung that seemed cool, but I’m not sure I liked the UI on those as much.
Since I’m on Verizon, obviously phones like the iPhone and new Google phone are not an option for me.
I mainly need a phone for calls, texting, tasks/notes, keeping track of my calendar/appointments, email and occasionally looking things up on the web (weather, directions, movie times, etc). I’m not someone that’s always surfing the web on my phone, but it’s nice to have the option to do shit like update my Facebook status or stuff like that.
At the same time, I’d like to get something that isn’t going to look dated in a year or two.
Anyway, please feel free to chime in with your thoughts or opinions about these phones or any other smartphone that Verizon has available.
