Do you agree with this chart based on the phones you've had?


I have a HTC Rezound and have been mostly satisfied with it... lately it's been acting up a little... random restarts, slow to respond once in a while... that kind of thing. I've had it about 12 months.

Prior to that I had a Motorola Droid X and it was fine up until the screen died. It lasted about 16 months.

I personally think that they design obsolescence into these things...


Samsung is at the bottom of the satisfaction list...

My son texted me just yesterday and said a girl in his class dropped her GS3 from about 4' high and even though it had a case and cover it shattered.

I've dropped my Rezound (it's in a shell case) several times and it's fine.

my wife has a GS3 and so far no problems, although not sure if she's dropped it much. I have a Droid Razr that's about 14 months old and no problems, dropped a few times. Prior to that I had the OG Droid and it started to get buggy after almost 2 years. I agree I think they design obsolescence into them.

I think they engineer these damn things to last about 14 - 18 months and then just die

If you treat them like poo, sure. I have an original Moto Droid that's still working fine, the HTC Thunderbolt I replaced it with is fine and I have no complaints about my DNA.

I treat mine pretty good...always in a case, don't get tossed around etc and they always seem to start acting up shortly after their 1st birthday

Dropped my Razr flat on the ground the other week and even with the Gorilla Glass and ZaggShield, the screen shattered. I had it about a year...after some wipes and cleaning up, they work just as good as new. The replacement one seems to be doing just as well. I'd say that 8.5 for a Razr is about right.

I've cleared all the caches, removed text messages more than 2 months old, deleted un-used apps... all the standard stuff... and it's a little better, but it still gets wonky sometimes.

It did a random reboot yesterday as a matter of fact...

iPhone is ok. i would have liked to test something else but trapped in an ATT plan right now. My button stopped working perfectly on the iPhone 4 so I got an iPhone 5.

Would like to get a RAZR next.

Do a factory reset. You'll have to reinstall stuff, but it makes a world of difference. And if you are like me, it gives you time to clean out the apps you never use.

There is no need to think this it is a fact. It's called planned obsolescence and has fuged the consumer in countless ways. If you want to start looking into it begin with the lightbulb.

The Galaxy Note score I really find surprising. I don't have one (still on my Nexus), but I will be getting a GN3 when I'm due for an upgrade in September. My sister however does have a GN2, which I have spent several hours using to see how it compares to the other galaxy phones. I can honestly say that it is one of the best devices I've ever used. Call quality is excellent in Charlotte and the surrounding area, and the features of the phone are incredible. The battery life from everything she says is outstanding for a phone of it's size. Yes I've read the screens are a little fragile, but I expect that to be changed on the GN3 so I'm not too concerned about it. Either way, that's what I have insurance on my phone for. Also I thought the size would be an issue (and it certainly would be for someone with smaller hands) but I found it's surprisingly comfortable in my hands, and I couldn't see it being an issue ever. If I had to nitpick, I would say that the battery gets a little hotter then most phones (which most wouldn't encounter with a case on it), and that the s-voice app is utter trash (but that's not an issue with the phone). Unless something drastically better then the rumored specs for the Note 3 hits the market then I'll definitely be picking up a note for my next mobile device....
