Bought an Android cell phone today.

So far I don't like it at all. It's a touch screen and so far it's very complicated to figure out. The touch screen is extremely sensitive and that's really annoying. Now I've got to import all my contacts prior to surrendering my other phone, and am paying for 2 phones when I only need one. I'm debating whether to get rid of this one, since it's so annoying, but I just don't know what to do. I bought it so that I could get maps and photos properly. That's really the only good thing about the phone. Maybe I'll warm up to it. It will take time I guess.

Hi Ashudeep, I am also saving money for me to buy a new phone. Though I like this QWERTY phone I have still, I would love to have an Iphone. It's not because of the texting thing but because I love the camera on it. But I am thinking of a cheaper alternative like the Ipod Touch 5th generation. It's more cheaper compared to iphones. Still, I am hoping that I could save up something since I still need to pay for my tuition fee. It's just hard to manage everything. Anyways, have a great day!

I don't think Android gets that much easier to use. You should get a Windows Phone instead. They are cheap and their UI is much easier and faster. I personally like the Lumia 800/900s but all of them are really good.

Hi kris182_2000! Congratulations on your new phone! Well, not everyone gets used to a new thing easily. But I believe that it would help if you go over the user's manual. I am sure that you will learn more about your phone by doing so. Or, you can go online and read more about your phone. Maybe, you might even find a way to decrease the sensitivity of the screen.

Hi Kris, As time goes by, maybe you will get used to it. Practice makes perfect. So, you really need to practice. And I probably think that by now, you are good already with that phone. Anyways, I've had a touch screen cellphone before. I had it for a year but I did not became accustomed to it. I kept on complaining that I text very slow and reply very slow. I couldn't even text probably like while walking or like I am doing something. So, after a year, and had a budget, I bought a QWERTY phone....It was hard at first but I am good and very fast now in texting. I love this phone very much since it's very convenient. happy Mylotting!

Frankly speaking, I am not too much excited about the latest smartphones. True, these have many features and applications like scanning, connecting to social networking sites, games, calculators, money managers etc, I feel that the basic functionality of a phone is calling, texting and storing messages and numbers. For that, less expensive and simpler phones are enough.

I do not think I would like it at all. I can see you needing it for maps for work though. I sure hope it becomes like second nature to you so it is easy to use.
