This is an pretty old post from my blog, which has been preserved in case its content is of any interest. You might want to go back to the homepage to see some more recent stuff.
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.
