My mobile is at death's door. I need a new one, and last time I asked a young, trendy person they seemed to indicate that a smart phone was the thing now. I'm still running a four year old Samsung G600 with a distinctly dodgy "1" key and a mic that has an on / off relationship with working. Basically, any smart phone I may choose will be barely distinguishable from a Star Trek tricorder to me. Can anyone please offer some advice on which one to go for?
I need the network to be O2 so I get decent coverage at my place of work.
I want to use the phone for (mainly):
- Phone calls (I'm a traditionalist)
- Emailing (I use Hotmail)
- Web (TFA, natch)
A decent camera would be nice, but is not a must have.
I'm no gamer, nor do I listen to much music outside my house or car. I am also an abstainer from Facebook, Twitter, etc. because I'm old and sad.
I'm not too great with touch screens due to my fingers having all the delicacy and dexterity of my avatar's arm appendages. A touch screen that can provide nice big buttons that even a clumsy dolt such as myself can use is a must, I'd say.
I've been told by a couple of people that the Windows OS on new Nokia phones is pretty top notch, and I like the look of the Lumia 800 and the forthcoming Lumia 900. Does anyone here have any experience / opinions of these phones?
Alternatively, can anyone recommend another smart phone I really should check out please?
Thanks in advance!
