iPhone...iDon't think so
So I got a new phone last week and as you can tell from the picture, it looks like an iPhone but that little Verizon symbol at the top let's you know that it's not. It's actually Verizon's newest Android based phone, the Samsung Fascinate.
Stupid name but a good phone...at least so far.
I've literally had it less then a week and am still trying to figure out all the bells and whistles, but so far I've only been able to find one major discrepancy between the iPhone and my Android. My phone hasn't dropped a single call yet.
Don't get me wrong, that's not a dig on the iPhone. I love Apple and I love all the products that they continue to roll out. In fact I'm typing this on my MacBook Pro...so I'm cool with Apple. I am not cool with AT&T. Nothing personal, I just think there service and coverage suck.
My wife has an iPhone. She loves the phone...hates the service. That seems to be the battle cry of just about every iPhone user that I know. That's why I went with the Android, because at the most basic level I still believe its important for my phone to work as a phone.
The bar code scanner is pretty cool though.
