I Am Itching For A New Phone

Recommended Posts

So I have Lumina 822.  I want a bigger screen.  T-mobile will buy my out of my two year contract and I can get cheaper service with no contract so money is a small factor as I will be saving $40 a month anyway.

 

I can wait too, just put a sim card from tmobile in this phone for a while.

 

What do you guys think?

What carrier are you with now? What carrier has the best service were you live? The T-mobile deal sounds good, but if the services is bad,,,,,

How big do you want to go? 4.5", 5", 6"?

I think 5 maybe 6.   Verizon is great the rest are all iffy.  T-mobile is 2nd best. 

 

I have decided that I will sacrifice quality of signal for $50 a month no contract plan.

      Regardless of whether you have built your WHS or it arrived all in one piece there are certain steps you should take to get up and running with Windows Home Server.  This is not a step by step guide to installation.  They are all different.  This is more like Cliff Notes.  It's the stuff you need to know before you get started and some tips and tricks before, during, and after installation.  I will publish a check list or a cheat sheet list to go along with this podcast.

      If anyone has a windows phone, I would suggest you check out the WP Outsiders app. It is a community app driven by windows phone users just like you and I.
       
      It is a great app in my opinion and one that I check multiple times a day. If you have any questions about it, just hit me up.
       
      You can find it here at the marketplace: http://www.windowsphone.com/en-us/store/app/outsider/16b4f331-e05b-e011-854c-00237de2db9e

      If you have been listening to SurfaceGeeks or the Agnostic Tech Podcast, you know I am back on Windows Phone fulltime. It was the Lumia 635 (which I got with an Xbox Music Pass for $99) that reminded me how much I love the OS.
       
      Since getting the Lumia 635 in my hands, I have tried the Lumia 830 and the HTC One M8. Oddly enough, I think my favorite is still the Lumia 635. It is an unbelievable value at the $30-50 price points it can be found for now.
       
      The HTC One M8 is wicked fast, and has the BoomSound speakers we all hear about. The speakers are great, but not worth the hype. (Maybe I feel this way as the Moto G (2014) and Nexus 6 are my two favorite Android devices and they both have dual front firing speakers?). The HTC One M8 camera is a sad little thing. It can perform well under ideal situations: indoors with the right lighting, and outdoors without too much lighting. The battery life is amazing, and the audio output via Bluetooth and the headphone jack is very solid. It is by far the fastest Windows Phone I have ever used. The touch screen is WAY too sensitive IMO. Even with a glass screen protector, I couldn't tame the sensitivity. You can sometimes just hover over the screen and touches are acknowledged. It can causes all sorts of typing and navigating havoc. In general, it is a very solid device.
       
      The Lumia 830 rubbed me the wrong way. The back was super flimsy and it felt cheap. Wireless charging didn't always work. It also didn't feel much faster than the 512MB Snapdragon 400 phones like the Lumia 635. I don't have much more to say as I only kept it a few days.
       
      The Lumia 635 just feels great in the hand. The back comes off easily, but doesn't feel mushy when on the device. The screen is solid, although not having an oleophobic coating is an annoyance. Microsoft (Nokia) uses "Easy to clean" under their products specifications to tell us if a device has an oleophobic coating or not. For a 512MB RAM device, it isn't THAT bad. Although I will see the dreaded "Resuming..." screen way more than I'd prefer. (It is virtually never seen on the HTC One M8 with it's 2GB RAM.)
       
      I've been reading and watching videos about the newly announced 640 XL. I think I am in love. It is a 635 on steroids. Same processor, but 1GB RAM, 5.7" IPS ClearBlack "East to clean" (oleophobic coated) screen that hands-on videos make look very solid. It has a 13MP camera with Zeiss Optics that is likely better than the HTC One M8 and a great front facing 5MP shooter for Skype/selfies. Running the latest and greatest Windows Phone 8.1 Update 2 software is appealing as it adds an improved settings menu, ability to pin settings to the home screen and Bluetooth keyboard support. I also feel the device will be one of the closest I can get to the Nexus 6. (I can't find a 1520.3 variant in black too easily and don't really want a device that old, and it is a beastly sized device.)
       
      So stay tuned to SurfaceGeeks and the Agnostic Tech Podcast to hear when I can get the 640 XL LTE variant here in the states, and if it ends up being the right device for me. It feels like fall is a longtime away and I am enjoying being back on the platform now, hence why I don't just wait for the new flagship(s).

      Okay so today Best Buy opened up pre-orders for the Nokia Lumia 920! I hopped in my car and drove down to ours and got my self one pre-ordered.
       
      One thing though, if you pre-order at the store, it is only the matte black one. I was really wanting the cyan one but black will do. That was my second choice.
       
      On the otherhand, if you pre-order online, you can choose which color. Weird, I know... Colors you can choose from are: Black, Red, Yellow, Cyan, White.
       
      As of right now, AT&T has not started pre-orders. I called and verified that with them.
