    I used to carry an iphone 3GS but after that phone contract finished, I bought a Samsung Galaxy Note (SGN). The iphone 3GS still gets the same software updates as the latest iphone (I think) and I can do all I wanted to do in the iphone 3GS with the Samsung Galaxy Note. All the apps I had in the iphone have a counterpart app in GooglePlay for the Samsung. Samsung advertises the SGN as an amalgamation of a smartphone and a tablet and that was why I bought it. So the smartphone and tablet merger has already begun.

    But the feature I like in the Samsung which is not in the iphone is that I can increase the memory capacity by adding a 32GB micro SD into the micro SD slot in the SGN phone.

    SGN also has a bigger screen but still fits in my pocket which tablets don’t. Tablets are too big for a jeans backpocket.

    I don’t have a tablet so I cannot really compare the SGN to a tablet, however, I don’t think there is much in a tablet which I cannot do in the SGN.

    The latest version of the SGN that samsung has released is smaller and does not seem to have a lot of technological advancement compared to my old SGN. So I am waiting for a newer version with more technological difference than what is currently in the market before buying again. Perhaps when the quad-core comes out?!?

      They say once you go Apple you never go back, but it sounds like you are pretty happy switching away to Samsung Cherry (that’s not your real name is it? – name@keywords!).

    Hi Christopher,

    I have had iphones for a number of years and currently have a 4. I am starting to find the iphone a little boring and extremely common place. When i got my first one almost no one had one and the functionality was far greater than the competitors, now it seems to be lagging behind. My next phone will probably not be an iphone and will likely be a Samsung.

      Ahh, so you are getting bored of the iPhone, which is why you are switching… that’s new, never heard that one before, but I can’t see why you wouldn’t get bored of it.

      Thanks for the comment Neil, did you know you are up for nomination for a community award?

      Merry Christmas!

    Hi Christopher, I saw the nomination, thank you.

    My feelings about the iphone are not just about boredom. I am starting to get a little irritated about how apple limits connectivity. I have also recently bought an ipad which is great for surfing the internet and using the apple apps but is quite inflexible as a work tool.

    Have a great Christmas

    Apple’s iphone is very good. Only problem is that their price is too high. Like recently i read that the manufacturing cost of an iphone is only approximately $200! Also, they are updating their phones at very low pace, instead they should come up with more powerful iPhone!

      I didn’t think it cost them that much to make it Mujtaba; if that is right, maybe that is why they charge so much!

      When you say more power would be good, do you mean battery life or functionality?

      Thanks for the comment, welcome to the blog :-)

        Yes, to be specific, it costs about $188, i saw it over here

        And powerful means they should use quad core processor, still they are doing away with dual core processor!
        Thank u!

    Hey Christopher! Great Post!
    I have also always been an iPhone lover, but to be honest i really wasn’t to impressed with the iPhone 5, it does seem a little boring. I didn’t really like the fact that is was bigger either. I hope they don’t start to go in the direction of Samsung and Androids.

      Hi Jboctor, (your real name?)

      I can understand the initial attraction to the iPhone, however now there are so many rivals out there, many of which are very good, I foresee that the popularity of the iPhone will continue to fall.

      What makes you so loyal to Apple as a brand? Is it their impeccable human rights record? Is it the low prices they offer their phones at? Is it the fact that they have very little in the bank?

      Thanks for adding your view, welcome to the blog :-)
