This is a post from my blog, which I have long since stopped maintaining. The page has been preserved in case its content is of any interest. Please go back to the homepage to see the current contents of this site.
I am due to upgrade my mobile phone in a couple of months, so yet again it’s time to pick the best of a generally bad bunch that I will be lumbered with for the next two years. Roughly speaking, my choice is:
|Phone||Decent hardware||Software updates||Good battery life||Rootable in perpetuity||New and interesting||No need to change desktop OS|
|Galaxy S III||Yes||No||No||Yes||No||Yes|
|HTC One X||Yes||No||No||Yes||No||Yes|
|Droid RAZR MAXX||No||No||Yes||Yes||No||Yes|
Please, phone manufacturers, make a phone that has more than three of the things in this table. Just for once.
