To Keep or to Replace
It came in over the weekend and I already have to replace it because there's a dead pixel on the screen. I know that's a normal occurrence with these devices. I've returned my iPhone 4 on numerous occasions because the sound blew out.
Problem is: Even during the coarse of using the 8X for a few days, the lack of apps in the Windows store is pretty apparent. And worse yet even the apps that are there aren't updated. So in the case of the Facebook app for instance; it won't let you review and approve or deny someone posting something to your timeline. A feature that IOS and Android versions have been updated to support. Did some research and found out that the lack of updating is because Facebook didn't create the app. Microsoft did. And I won't even bring up the Youtube app! (3 letters WAP) Just a lot of little things that just aren't as polished as their counterparts. But I really do enjoy using this thing. *confused*..
So now I'm getting ready to head back to the Verizon store to replace the phone. Should I replace it with a new one (without a dead Pixel)? or SUCK IT UP and get the IPhone 5 (and cement my iPhone fan boy Status for all time)?
In any event, you seem to enjoy trying out non-Apple devices; is there something that makes you unsure of iPhone or is it just curiosity? No matter what you do today, I have the feeling that you are not done with your experimenting; and more power to you for that!
You asked if I'm unsure of the iPhone; thats not why I try out competitors. I like having options. The more choice you have the more benefit for consumers i think. I use an android tablet, a hackintosh which is dual booted to windows 8 and Mountain Lion. I just like being able to see whats out there. WIndows phone is really great in my opinion. The ecosystem is the only thing thats a problem right now. When thats sorted out, it may overtake Android one day.
