After 2 years, my iphone 3G is dying. The battery life is trailing off and it is getting stupidly slow.
(update: the battery life isn’t quite as bad as I originally thought. I had accidentally left “Email Push” on for the last few weeks, which leaves me with 30% battery after a day of not using the phone at all. Without Push, I’m left with 70%.)
So what new phone do I get? The obvious contenders are iphone 4 and HTC Aria
I’d like to stay with AT&T because
* nice keeping my combined phone bill combined
* I’ve got good AT&T service in all the places I go
Pros: solid platform(?)
Cons: itunes is the worst media player and sync app ever, draconian dark ops feel to the company, walled fucking garden, disallowing reviews of their products on the AT&T website (see image), Apple not admitting to important problems with their product, the phone slowing down for no good reason after 2 years, possibly poor battery life?
So, which phone do I get?
