Battle of the Smartphones: iPhone 5, Samsung Galaxy S III or Nokia Lumia 900?
The first thing you have to know about me and smartphones is that we go way back. I started programming cell phones back in 1999 and spent the next six years in the wireless industry. So when I make decisions about phones, it’s coming from years and years of being a “power-user” as we’re called. My device is an extension of who I am.
Since I teach people how to use social media for their marketing efforts, I’m always online. It’s a pretty much 24/7 non-stop kinda game and mobile is a big part of my day.
My phone sleeps next to my head, I haven’t used a watch or regular alarm clock since the 90s and I freak out when it falls to the bottom of my huge purse and I have to dig around for more than 10 seconds…hoping that I didn’t leave it somewhere behind and have to experience near panic attacks if I don’t touch it or it’s not within (or ON) my actual body at all times. Maybe I need a meeting, but hey, this is important.
So I’ve been a hugely loyal Apple fan since my days of working at AT&T when I actually sold the very first generation iPhone back in 2007. It took me a bit to get off my Crackberry and switch over, but once I did, I was in love.
Fast forward to present day and I’ve had several generations of the iPhone. Now I want something different. Their glitz and glam and multi-million dollar advertising budgets can only go so far on me now. I want something cooler, better.
I’m out of contract with AT&T, have three lines (including an iPad2) and need a phone that works. So here are my top choices:
or these two – Samsung Galaxy S 3 and the Nokia Lumia 900
After playing with each phone, I’ve come to a conclusion. My final selection is on its way to my as we speak. I’ll be blogging about it then.
Which phone would you choose?
