Oh Parents, Part X (Smartphone Decisions to be Made!)
So Dad and I were talking about work (I start a new job fairly soon) while fixing the stove (one of the dials for the burner was broken), and the subject of phones came up. Now, sad to say my dad pays my phone bill for me because we're under a family plan, but I'm definitely going to be doing my part (finally whoohoo) to pay for the bill soon because of this. Again, this was all in Chinese translated into English.
Dad: So it looks like you're going to have to get an iPhone* soon.
Me: Uh, I guess. I mean, technically I could just get the internet on my current phone**, although it's a piece of cr-
Dad: Get the iPhone.
Me: Oh, okay. o.o
* - By iPhone he really means any kind of smartphone.
** - I currently use a Samsung Flight. It works... But unfortunately, it's reception strength is pretty poor compared to my old phones. Not to mention I've noticed it's been locking up when it comes to processing certain applications, even stuff that's already pre-built in. Ugh.
I used to use Sony Ericsson phones, but lately the models that have been coming around aren't too great or a bit out of my budget.
Now of course he didn't mean get the phone right away, but it's something I'm going to have to consider...
Considering my bad experience with Samsung so far, should I even consider getting a Samsung Galaxy S III, or should I just consider looking at the iPhone 4s or HTC X One? Or is there another phone in the market now I should consider saving up for?
