Choosing a new mobile phone

From time to time, exactly every 2 years customers have to choose between quit or extending the mobile contract. The business terms of t-mobile been fine and when extending the next choose will be between invoice credit or a new phone. Mostly my decision had been the new phone, but which one ?

The technical data was discussed alot and I’ll not repeat it here. I hadn’t experience with the Microsoft Windows 8 OS until now and no time to test. Still Android and iOS on the list. The new Nexus and the Sony Xperia Z wasn’t available at the time of ordering and the other competitors are to heavy in their dimensions for a mobile phone. Decision between Android, iOS and Windows 8 was a neck-and-neck race and the key point had been the invested money in Apps. Binding the hardware and the software in the way Apple does makes it some kind of difficult to change the operation system.

iPhone 5 slims in weight and is still good-looking, overall a good decision.
