I hate tablets and similar shits. Not a fan of phones in general but as we all know people call and text every day so I do need one. I still have a 10 year old motorola 'brick' that works like new and I don't plan on changing it any time soon, it serves my needs very well.
Never go Apple. Their devices are over priced and, quite frankly, useless as anything more than a cool toy. Android devices can be a little dificult to get used to, but if you utilize everything they have to offer, they can be invaluable. That said, there are a lot of other devices that are just as great as android, but may be more suited to your tastes.
At the momentI use Android, butat the beginning of the yearI had aNokiaC6-00with the system Symbian. AndIcan say thatany systemisfailing -bothof thesesystems make me fun, when they begin to fail. Butsometimes you wantto throwthe phoneinto the wall
