Time to Buy My New Phone | HTC DNA or Samsung Galaxy S3?

Went out yesterday to touch and feel the phones available from Verizon.

Bauer mentioned the Samsung Galaxy S3 as a look-see, and I wanted to check out the HTC DNA.

Here’s a comprehensive video that Phone Reviews put together:

Note** the HTC DNA is HUMONGOUS people! Put two of them together and some wheels on it and you got a skateboard! Sure it has impressive hardware, but you’d need a separate messenger bag to drag it around. It’s redonkulis and sadly, and with some hesitation, I can’t use it.

The Samsung Galaxy S3, on the other hand, albeit it pretty slick, it’s got an outdated operating system, dual core processor and frankly, I don’t do Samsung.

Since an iPhone isn’t an option and the Windows Phone lacks (apps, period) and some critical apps that I need and use, we’ll just have to wait and see what next year brings. I’ve done this drill before…

Verizon New Wireless Shared Nothing Plan

I heard the rumors earlier this year that Verizon would be announcing a shared plan, and was hoping that it actually might save us some money. WRONG!

Verizon outlined to investors how these new wireless plans would help it make more money. Because that’s what it’s all about, more money for them.

Verizon Wireless botched the launch of its Share Everything voice, texting and data plans by making too many drastic and costly changes at once, analysts said Wednesday.

New Verizon plans: Who wins and who loses?

After the shared plans come into effect later this month, Verizon’s unlimited data customers who want to get a new phone at a discounted price will have to pick either a limited data plan or a shared plan.

As I see it, as long as we don’t buy a new subsidized phone we can keep our legacy data plan. Swell.
