Anyway, I am looking to get away from a small acreen.
I had in my hands an HTC Titan and loved Mango with the email /contacts integration and the size of the screen. I was using it to watch Netflix confortably. Anyway would have kept the phone except that in 30 days I had three Titans and ALL of them had the random power cycle every like 12 to18hrs and I had tried some troubleshooting but didn't make a difference. Beside the fact it had awful Voice quality on phone calls both ways. So all of the Titans got shipped back and I reversed the upgrade well that was when I was with AT&T which is no longer the case.
The Dell Venue pro seems like the price is right now (Amazon, Newegg) but I know the hardware is more than an year old now. At this point in time would one want to purchase this phone? Does this phone have a front facing camera too? How is the voice quality?
When I had the Titan in my hands I played with the Tango Video chat software and talked to my cousin in Australia and it worked out fine except for voice, when I plugged in a headset it was night and day difference.
Just curious how many windows phone have a front facing camera and have decent voice quality both ways?
Looking for suggestions here. I have read some of the forum but just can't make a decision on how to get away from my 3.2 inch screen of my Nokia 5800. Thank you in advance for suggestions.
You know, that's a good question, one that has been tossed around in a couple of threads. It will all boil down to personal choice, of course. Yes, the dell is an old phone. But, its still a good phone. If you can get it contract free, it may be a good deal for you. I just gave mine to my son lady week. He came from an HTC sensation. Loves it.
There are several new phones out right now, a Samsung or 2, the titan, nokia has the 710, 610, 800 out now or real soon. Most fall into tufted 3.x range. Too small for me.
Nokia is introducing the Lumia 900 series in the next 2 weeks. You can check the
specs on nokia.com. They look good. This will be my choice.
This week in Barcelona is the mobile world conference. You should see a lot of new offerings come from there. If you can wait , I recommend checking out the news from mwc first...you can follow it in engadget.com, and other places.
The key recommend would be, try the phone, do the research, and most of all, HOLD the phone. See on it feels and fits in your hand. Take no ones word but your own. And mine, of course.
