Hi. We know that there are a lot of phones in this world nowadays. There are different brand of phones that could best suit a person. But, what is the phone that has a good quality? Is it HTC, Samsung, Blackberry, Nokia, Sony or what? I am planning to buy Samsung again but I'm wondering if it could last for 4 to 5 years till I buy another one. I don't like iPhone. that is too way expensive for me. :) What's the best phone so far?

My first Samsung phone was from a cellular network's free phone, a flip phone, in 2004. And you know what? It is still functioning quite well to this day. My other smart phone is also a Samsung phone, i850 with HD features, four years and works perfectly well.

Nope, actually we're "kababayans", lol! The free ones in Korea are given out by cellular networks probably since competition there is quite stiff, so it's their marketing strategy to get more customers. There are lot of branded, especially LG and Samsung phones in our local market, as well as the second-hand ones which are really a temptation, lol!

Oh. Hello there. Haha. Yes. And actually the LG phone that I really wanted is still on it's high price. WAAAHH. The one that has a transparent keypad. Nothing, it just looks cool. Haha. I hope I could have a free phone also. I mean, the one that I don't really have to pay anything. :D

I am also planning to buy a new phone this coming December, one for me and for my wife. My best choice is Samsung but haven't decided yet what model, probably it will defend on my cash budget. My best best bet is not to go for higher end model but in middle range only. December is still a month and a week to go maybe by then I can have my final decision on the model I will purchase. Cheers and happy lotting!

hello fatlex the best phone to choose is an android since iOS phone is way too expensive for you. samsung has a wide variety of android phones to choose form since you need a quality phone then i would recommend you to choose galaxy s3. if you want some change then go for windows phone, nokia has windows phone 8 and this phones are new to the market. the nokia lumia 920 is the new nokia phone models that has a good reviews and can compete with samsung galaxy s3 and iPhone 5.

Yes. That is so right. but s3 is not among my choices. It's too expensive for me and it is too useful that makes me afraid that maybe I won't able to maximize the use o it. :D Yes, nokia lumnia is a good phone. It is too fast. and the touch is good. My brother has it. :)

It really depends on your budget and your needs. I have been using a Blackberry for 3 years now and so far it has served its purpose very well. I have no complains for emails, IMs, and the regular calls and texts. And oh despite the not so big screen as compared to other touch screen phones, it is also fared okay when it come to internet browsing.

Yes. That's right. I have to know my needs and wants first before buying one. ;) Actually, I want a tablet so I can use skype more often. So that if my computer has a trouble, I can easily get online with Skype to work. ;)

Samsung is one of the best and pioneer in most latest feature when it comes to handset/mobile phones. Quality depends on how you use your phone.

Yes. That's right. actually, I have my first Samsung phone last 2010. Just recently, it was broken for some unknown reasons. So I thought that each phone has an expiration, even if you take good care of it so much. :)

Samsung currently has the best Android phone around in the market Whereas Iphone is one of its kind using IOS. If you are comfortable with Android go for Samsung galaxy S3 or Samsung Note II . I think other brands won't be able to catch up with both company claiming copyrights now.

Yes, I agree with you on this. But those high end phones were really expensive. :D I can buy it actually but I told myself not to bu a thing which is not really useful for my work and that is worth more than I deserve. :) I just need a phone and a tablet as well. And one of the choices that I have is owned by Samsung. :) Do you know their tab2 which is a tablet and can text and call as well?

Not all Nokia phones are great. Some of their touch phones are not so responsive. But Nokia Lumnia is very good. :) I think that's the greatest cellphone that Nokia had. :D So far....

i agree with you as regards iphone and its costs!!Anyway i think if you choose samsung is always a trusted brand especially from a quality hardware and even features!!Personally when i bough my new smartphone i consider almost all brands and so compared different specs to understand which one is better for my needs in the end i chose an htc smartphone and now i can say that i am satisfied about this choice so you can take a look a phone even from this brand that in last period are growing up because normally their products are ok even considering the price!!

if you want quality phone then Samsung is the best or LG. I dont like Nokia personally and Blackberry not so much. If you want moderate quality and affordable then try Torque. Hey, it not that bad, hehe, try looking for it in malls and assessed the quality. its phil based handphone and very much affordable.

I have the samsung galaxy s3, and it is a great phone, and quite popular too. This is my third ggalaxy phone, and by far this one beats the other two, hands down. I never thiought I would like samsung until I started using it, and I do believe they are of a very good quality, and very durable as well. the s3 has a fast processor, so web browsing, goes very smoothly, and it doesn't take minutes for the pages to load at all. I am really enjoying it a lot, and I use it to post in here as well, which I did earlier today. You can't go wrong with the galaxy s3. Take care, and have a great day.
