    Smartphones can get f***ed

    Just wanted to vent.... i recently bought myself the first semi expensive 'smartphone'.... what a PITA....

    Too much stuff crammed into the tiny screen, always does things i don't want it to do, clicks on things i don't want it to, doesn't click on things i want it to.... swipes when i don't want to swipe, swipes too far.... i was close to smashing the thing with a hammer and going back to my old basic phone....

    This is a phone that has good reviews too.

    Maybe i'll get used to it with time but i'm not really fussed to learn.... who really needs or wants that much stuff on a little PITA device anyway?? Not me.

    Laptops are so much better.

    End rant.

    Oh... it's an iPhone is it?

    Most new users want to smash their smartphone. I swapped my keyboard to a 3x4 straight away or mine would of gone to. I'm often getting a word right after 5 attempts. I forgive it though because carrying the internet is a huge plus. Otherwise I would go back to my banana

      No it's not an iPhone it's a Google phone.... it's not a high end one but reviews say it's very good for the price.

      Maybe it is but i've never been a phone person.... good to have, but i will hardly use it.
      I won't be updating for a loooong time.

          Not sure what you mean, but i don't mean i won't be updating because it's smart enough, i mean i won't be wasting any more money on these things.

                I use a dumb phone, I have no need for a smart phone, I even had internet disabled on my dumb phone as they charge AU$1 per megabyte.

                    I love smartphones. But I'm of the younger generation, one of the rookies here on the forum. Maybe that's the difference.

                    Don't drop it though, it breaks fairly easily.

                      In the reviews i read it says that this phone will last all day on a single charge if used moderately.... it lasts about 5-6 days for me

                      Maybe that means i'll get 5 years out of my battery if it's projected for 1-5 years lifespan?

                        It's a Lithium battery = 300-500 recharges

                          So i could possibly milk 5 years out of it?

                          When they say with moderate usage should last one day and with low usage 1.5 - 2 days they didn't mean only 5 minutes usage per day?

                            fuck smartphones. i mean they are a technical marvel but i hate them. leaving aside the huge privacy/surveillance concerns, their usage is just so cumbersome.
                            as someone who is a power user on desktop pc's, using a phone feels like someone tied a hand behind my back and cut off 3 of my fingers on the other one.

                            i bought a bunch of flip-phones years ago, they should last me for the forseeable future.

                              They seem like they are designed for people who just want to take photos and post to instagram or use social media, not really to have multiple tabs open which you can come and go from.

                              They have the ability to do a lot but are not practical for doing a lot.
