It’s time to move on.
A short review of the new toy, first:
The main reason behind the switch is the OS (apps!) AND Gorilla Glass. It’s scratch-resistant glass, look it up on Youtube and check out videos that slice devices with a knife just to prove that Gorilla Glass is the bomb. I cannot say anything about the build of the Galaxy but its design makes it look fragile. At least the scratch part’s covered!
Cons I have observed: Battery life is awful—you have to charge daily. There is no comprehensive manual for Android OS. Most importantly, not exactly user-friendly for newbies. I had to explore for hours just to get my account synced. It’s hard to remember where particular settings are.
To be honest, I had second thoughts changing mobile brands. I was doing my research on Samsung and Nokia phones and stumbled upon a link that shared in full detail the email that Nokia CEO Stephen Elop sent to an internal Nokia employee system stating that the “platform is burning.” I guess brand loyalty can make you emotional over products.
