Getting a New Mobile Phone
It has been almost 5 years since I last bought a new mobile phone. My phone has already retired, even after several attempts to revive it, like replacing the original battery and the original casing. In case you are wondering, it was a Motorola L6 model and it has been with me even before I met my wife. This Motorola model has been my only phone for years and i just got a new one last year for office use. I am planning to buy a new one, just a simple and affordable phone which I can use for personal use. I have been planning to buy a Samsung phone but just like Nokia models, most of them are a bit expensive.
Recently, I noticed LG and MyPhone phone units are more affordable and has a wide range of models to choose from. I would love to have touch screen phones but most of them are way above my budget. I am also considering phones that have a qwerty keypad which saves time while texting compared to traditional phones. I really hope that when I decide to buy a new phone, it would also last for 4-5 years or longer.
Here are my choices:
1. My Phone Q21 - features: dual sim, GSM GPRS, 2.2" 220 x 176 pixels, SMS, MMS, Chat, Email, MP3, MIDI, True Tones, Bluetooth, 1.3 megapixel, 1000 entries, Micro SD up to 2GB, 220 min talk time
2. LG GW300 - features: 240 x 320 resolution, FM radio, bluetooth, micro SD up to 4GB, 262K colors, MP3 player, internal memory 15MB, 2.0 megapixel
