One of the advantages of being in HK is the wealth of phone options we have here, though having so much choice can also be a burden... I'm looking to pick up a smartphone and looking for some opinions on possible choices. I haven't had the chance to check out the MK phone mall lately, so hopefully some of you have.
iphone 3gs - i'm no apple fan boy but the good thing about this is that i'm pretty familiar with the ui having owned a ipod touch 2g and even though missing flash support, lot of apps and overall great responsive os. at $5400 its not cheap (i'm locked into a contract already atm otherwise I would have probably already gotten it, even though 3 sucks) but i know what i'm getting for the price at least.
htc hero - heard a lot of good things about the phone except that it is running on sluggish hardware. does anyone know how much its going for in hk?
samsung omnia ii - recently released, looks like it has a great screen but held back by crappy win mo 6.1. apparently upgradable to 6.5 once it comes out, but from the reviews it looks rather sluggish at times despite having the fastest processor (800mhz). Anyone have an opinion / know the price?
samsung jet - not really smartphone, more of a feature phone but cheap from what i hear. it's like $4k? has anyone picked one up? also boasts a really good screen.
n97 - i feel that nokia has fallen a bit behind in the touchscreen smartphone field... so haven't looked seriously at this phone given the lackluster specs. would welcome any opinions tho.
or... should i wait? anything exciting coming down the pipeline? i could probably wait until xmas.
also, what providers / plans are you smart phone users on?
