I loved this template for an Android phone review that Stephen M. Hackett of 512 Pixels put together, unfortunately it is so true.
I am a big fan of Android but apart from there being more space on the device I don’t see any reason to upgrade my Android phone, the features are creeping in but too slowly for my liking.
- The screen is better, brighter and bigger than on previous devices.
- It’s thin, but not iPhone-thin.
- The OEM’s Android skin isn’t awesome, but in some places, it could be.
- The new launcher comes with lots of widgets that do things.
- 4G is cool, unless you like battery life. But damn, those 28 seconds of browsing are fast!
- The camera software still sucks.
- Also, FRONT-FACING CAMERA! Note: This can be swapped for “3-D!!!!” if the review requires it.
- While Android is open, there’s lots of crapware on this phone.Hello, VZContact Manager FREE!
- This may be the best Android phone yet, but if not, just wait a week or two.
- The current version of Android lacks some polish, but the next version of Android will be the one to have, we promise. It’s going to rival iOS. Granted, this phone probably won’t ever get to run it.
I’m looking to upgrade soon and to be honest I’m kind of stumped as all the high end Android phones on the Market seem to be exactly the same phone with a slightly different shell…
So much so that I’m debating going on an 18 month fruity holiday to see what it’s like on the other side of the fence and to allow the platform to differentiate it’s self a little…
I think that choice hinges on what Apple announce on the 4th and on what the new Nexus Prime handset has to offer, although I doubt there will much difference between the Nexus Prime and the current Galaxy S II, I do like the idea of having a phone whose name is part Blade Runner and part Transformers.
