had completely given out on parts of my old Moto-Q. Turns out "P", "space" and "enter" are kinda important from time to time. Plus it's an old Windoze Mobile 6.1 (upgraded) phone that didn't have a big touchscreen and really was out of date for about 99% of the apps out there.
It was time to go.
I settled on the Samsung Captivate (AT&T's version of the Samsung Galaxy S) because it has tons of features and nothing but great reviews. Plus the $99 price tag for a new one looked pretty good in the bang for the buck category. I've wanted an iPhone since they first came out, but I think the Android platform is more versatile and the Samsung has a better camera. Not to mention, it isn't made by Apple.
The Captivate cost me $99. But I could have bought a cosmetic refurb 8G iPhone3GS for free. I still think I made the right deal going with the Droid.
I also lucked out because a major factor in changing phones was swapping rate plans. I had a $19.99 Unlimited data plan that was hard to beat. Turns out I can get by on the $15.99 plan because I really don't surf that much from my phone.
Anywho, here's the Samsung Galaxy S:
Update: An astute friend was kind enough to point out I could have got the exact same phone for $50 less if I bought it from RadioShack.
