    Smart Phone Users out there...

    Post  Pky6471 on Fri Jun 21, 2013 11:38 am

    I am a hi-tech guy, Yes we help IBM, Intel, Micro, Apple, Samsung, TSMC,AMD etc... build faster chips (down to 16 nm node now) and yet I am still using my 5-yr old flip-phone. I could see some benefits of smart phone ,i.e. GSP, web search on internet and emails while waiting at doctor office ... but I don't think I would use it enough to make a switch, not yet... so, go ahead and convince me...
    Thanks guys/girls/AC-DC

    I just got a Galaxy S4 recently.  It is kind of scary; like having a mobile laptop that fits in your shirt pocket.

    It knows when you are looking at it.  There is no need to touch the screen... just make a motion, and then the gazillion other things it does I will never figure out.

    Works good as a phone though.  G4 network is faster than my computer for internet...

    Samsung Galaxy S4 phone is one of the best, it's rated higher than the newest iPhone (Samsung makes its owns chips, and also chips for iPhone... Due to recent legal issues between the 2 companies, TSMC is now making chips for iPhone in Taiwan).
    I know t-Mobile offers this phone for $99 with 2-yr contract of using wi-fi network.... I am thinking about it, but I would rather buy an unlocked phone so that i could go with any independent network rather than with T-mobile, AT&T or Verizon.... What package do U have, worth it? Thanks

    Just talked to T-Mobile at length today... for 4 of us to move to a new plan, monthly payment is about the same, just have to pay $99.99 for each Samsung S4 phone... I think 500MB data plan/month is more than enough for me... Looks like we are going to bite the bullet and go for it

    I use an iPhone. I don't use a Samsung, Blackberry or some other nonsense with "droid" in the name. I'm not in 4th grade any longer and don't need a name that reminds me of some Star Trek episode.

    Everyone I know who owns a Galaxy or Droid thing hates it. The iPhone is superior in every way.

    Also, the iPhone is for the upper class. That's where I prefer to stay.

    what have U been smoking? Samsung S4 is way better than iPhone 5... yes I know, I help design chips for both Samsung and Apple... If you've read enough end-user reviews, they all agree that Samsung S4 is the best on the market today...

    I don't smoke, thank you. You only believe the Samsung S4 is better than the iPhone 5 because you own a Samsung. So what if you design chips for Apple and Samsung? I eat chips from Frito Lay. What are we talking here? How does that make you a superior reviewer of the two smart phones? It doesn't. Your ego is writing checks your body can't cash.

    End user reviews tell you nothing. Most of those are posted by people hired by the company. I've used both and the iPhone rocks better than AC/DC. The Samsung is more like England Dan and John Ford Coley....."I'd really not love to see you tonight".

    Sorry FD

    Normally I would let this pass but I just can't stand aside any longer and let you make such outrageous statements. There is no way 'droids' are in any way related to some lame Star Trek episode. If we are talking 'droids' we're definitely talking a Star Wars episode.

    Please get your facts straight before you post.

    Sheesh!!!
