A while back I was thinking of buying a new phone and I just realized today that I forgot to post an update on the subject.
You’ve probably already guessed from the title of this post that I finally bought a phone and yes I got the Motorola XT5 that was on sale at the time of my previous post.
I’ve had the phone, which has been christened the “aussiedroid” for almost 3 months now and all I can say is that I’m so happy with it, truth be told I’m in love with the Android OS.
I only have one complaint about the phone, the internal memory sucks, I started off with 120mb, when the memory should have been 512mb, it seems that all the pre-installed apps that I can’t get rid off are using up all the missing space, and after installing some useful apps I now have less than 50mb left, so in other words I have to be really careful choosing any more apps, especially since the version I have (Eclair 2.1) doesn’t support saving them on the memory card.
Apart from that, the Android is a really cool OS, the apps in the market seem to work without freezing and are pretty cool, and I love that Google owns it, yes Google is like the coolest thing on the internet. With the droid all you need is a Google account and you’re set, I used my existing account so now all my contacts are synced on Gmail, I can access them from my account online if I ever forget my phone anywhere, I can add new contacts from my Gmail and sync my phone without having to bother using the phone for adding or updating anything. And best of all I can download market apps from my computer straight to my phone.
Most importantly I’ve finally started loosing weight again thanks to the MyFitnessPal app that was highly recommended on the market, the reason is that I can now update my food diary wherever I am and whenever I want, it’s always with me, before the droid I had to be in front of a computer and had to memorize what I’d eaten all day, now I just log it even before I eat it.
So yeah I’m pretty happy with my new phone and if I ever think of buying another phone it’s definitely going to be another Android.
