What cell phone do you use?
« on: October 19, 2015, 01:26:31 PM »
Just wondering what handset you use, and why (if you made modifications and why). 

I've got a Samsung Note 3, was REALLY unhappy with battery life so I rooted and put a custom rom (Cyanogen 12.1 V17), and bought a 6800 mAh battery.  Probably didnt need the expanded battery as rooting/custom rom and deleting all the BLOAT my carrier and Samsung put on the phone made the battery last all day, but I ordered the battery before I did the custom rom.  Now the battery lasts a full 2 days with medium - heavy use. 

One of my techs has a Samsung S5 - 16gig which is now so full of bloatware and updates that no more updates are possible.  (i'm like what?  You can no longer do updates because the phone is full?)  So now his only choice is to root/custom rom or buy a new handset. 

We are all over the board with phones, one has an old blackberry bold, 3 different model samsung handsets, and one with an iphone.

The whole bring your own device is something management is ok with - and a struggle for me as operations manager.  So how are you handling it?

A brick phone. No updates needed. :066:

I gotta get out of this business...

Had Nextels for years, then Blackberrys then Palms.

I really liked the Palms. My wife had an Android and hated it. Mostly for the terrible battery life, I think.

Pretty happy with Apple. Compared to the palm though, their calendar app sucks.

From now - > then

iPhone 6+
iPhone 4S
iPad (original with whistle as my phone and a bluetooth headset)
BlackBerry Tour
Nexus Android running HoneyComb (yep, tablet used as phone).
Windows Phone Mobile 5.1

At this point, it is iOS or nothing for me. I only dabble with Android tablets as background noise. We are all iOS on tech phones and in field tablets.
