Bye Bye iPhone Part 2

All Rights Reserved by Google December 15, 2009 So this post arrived a little later than I was hoping. This is the second segment of a three part series discussing my decision to drop my iPhone. Today I am going to discuss some of the positive features that I am enjoying with my new T-Mobile G1.

Feature 1- I unlocked it without having to jailbreak it. I simply called T-Mobile and within 24 hours they emailed me an unlock code. The G1 is a quad-band phone so I can use it with any GSM carrier in the world.

Feature 2: The phone supports microSD cards so I can add bigger storage as they become cheaply available. Found a 16 gigabyte microSD card for $40 on newegg! So now I have all of my music, podcasts, videos and pictures on my phone.

Feature 3- a 3.2 megapixel camera with autofocus. Now keep in mind I was switching over from an iPhone 3G, which has a 2 megapixel camera with no autofocus.

Feature 4- I can install apps easily that are not in the Google Market store.

Feature 5- The battery life is definitely worst than the iPhone, but at least I can remove the battery and swap it out. I found another battery for around $15 dollars on Amazon. This gives me more than a full days worth of heavy usage.

Feature 6- I can sync my phone with any operating system. Even though I mostly sync my G1 with iTunes on my Macintosh, at least I have the option.

This are the main features that I really enjoy with my new G1. Now with all things there are the pros and cons. In my next blog post I will discuss some of the negative features about the T-Mobile G1 (aka HTC Dream).

  2. Hey Brandon! I didn’t know you had a blog! This isn’t xanga-related though is it? Anyway sweet!

    Yeah, I suddenly found myself in one of those situations of having to decide between 2 really good choices and it’s SO hard! It involves people and I don’t want to cause anyone disappointment/make them feel like they’re my 2nd pick … it’s just one of those things. I’ll leave the specifics out of it because it’s really not the main point – the point is, I don’t want to be stuck in this situation of having to be the one who has to choose between 2 of my close friends invitation/plans :S

    It’s been good though. Lord has been leading me and bringing peace to my heart through it all

    I am making it my goal to seek the Lord in prayer!
    Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. [Philippians 4:6]
