Which phone to get?
« on: January 08, 2011, 10:58:28 pm »

My options are getting an iphone4 for a slightly more expensive price and slightly worse tariff or getting either an HTC Desire HD or Samsung Galaxy S at a cheaper price and better tariff. I've always kinda been against iphones but lately ive come to realise that it's a pointless fight now since it looks and sounds pretty much flawless and since we dont even have 4g technology here the "iphone4 is only 3g" argument is moot.
So which one should I go for?

I always said I'd never get a iPhone but I love mine now. Does everything for me from streaming videos from my pc, remote desktop to the usual calendar email job.

Definitely worth the money considering they hold there value really well, even 3GS are still like 300

i have the Desire hd amazin phone, better speced than the iphone 4 really

ive never been a fan of the iphone OS to be honest, i get on a lot better with android.

to me the price would sway me, HD is cheaper both cost and tariff.

Galaxy S here. Much prefer the Android OS to the Apple one. Beware the cool tax.

That's air video, encodes them based on connection speed. Worked really well over the wifi in turkey

I also got it to playback live BBC over a VPN to my home computer

Got it to access the file shares on my pv as well so I can upload and download files on the fly

Air video is just a program you install on your machine, you just install it generate a PIN and point it to your video files. The app is like 1.50 or something.

VPN stuff comes with the iphone, i just used my windows 7 to set up to receive incoming VPN

The file browsing I did using WebFolders to create a WebDav share on my pc (used a tutorial online) then a 59p app to access it. Theres a few apps like streamtome you can use to stream music and pictures from your pc just by installing a simple app like Airvideo as well

With the joys of jailbreaking you basically have unlimited games and apps as well.

I'm upgrading mine in a week or so and going for the nexus. Personally i think iphones are overpriced and i much prefer the android operating system. I play with phones all day at work and all the best phones run on android.

One disk is what I used for accessing the WebDAV , I use net portal when I'm on WiFi in the house.

Can you access it via 3G or any other wifi connection or do you have to be in range of the same network your computer is connected to?
