Fun New Gadget!

Well, my Blackberry Storm finally bit the dust.  As of yesterday I could only use half of the QWERTY touch screen and considering the phone doesn't have an actual keypad.......that is an issue.  So, I sucked it up and went to Verizon to find my new companion.

I present to you......

The Samsung Fascinate

Now, I have only owned the phone for a day or so but so far I LOVE it!!!! It is such a fun toy!

Perks to this lovely new device:
  • Gorgeously crystal clear screen (thanks to the AMOLED touch screen)
  • Tons of apps
  • Very fast (especially when utilizing WiFi at home)
  • User friendly
  • Swype (the COOLEST thing EVER)
  • Takes great pictures and video
  • Call quality is good
  • Lightweight 
  • Animated wallpaper.....not a big deal functionally speaking but very awesome
  • The internet package is $20 cheaper/month than Blackberry
  • Skype capable
The not so good:
  • Bing is the programmed search engine (I am a Bing hater....Google lover)
  • You have to charge your phone pretty much everyday if you are utilizing several of the apps (but that is how most smartphones are these days)
But, like I said, the jury is still out on this new toy of mine.  As of day 1.....I still love it......which is more than I could say for my Blackberry Storm.  :-)

Have a fabulous day!

I just got a new phone on Monday - my first smartphone (yes, I'm behind). I am not used to having to charge a phone so much but I have to say I am loving it!

Glad you finally were able to find a phone and are happy with it so far!

I agree - all the smartphones are big ol' battery suckers but they are SO worth it :)
