First up – I’m not a computer techie genius. I studied horticulture for four years. Computer stuff so to speak is a past-time. Secondly. Of things that may fall out of ones pockets, fall into puddles, get rained upon etc… my gadgets need to be tolerant of my lifestyle. See this post on my camera
I had a Nokia N95. But I was given/ got an iphone. A new phone. I know some may say it is the best thing since roll out turf and I will not disagree with anyones review of what I am sure is an amazing piece of technology. But, I am constantly asked my thoughts on it, how I find it and if for me it works.
Whats this got ot do with the great outdoors I hear you say? Quite simply, I wanted to text a client a pic of a plant recently to say Eureka! I found ‘the one’. But, I couldn’t. It is therefore relevant to the business of landscaping. It needs to be reviewed.
- the battery life wont usually get me through a day
- it is a little more fragile
- the camera is 1 megapixel – very poor
- one cant text a photograph
- one cant recieve a photo in a text
- i dont want email to my phone
- i cant use qik on it [one can but you need to be a gifted techie]
- i can’t use another sim card in it if i go abroad [see above]
This is why I will revert back to my old reliable Nokia N95.
- it has a decent battery
- its hardy-er
- the camera is 5 megapixel [it even does black and white]
- i can take a pic and text it to my mam
- she can send me one back
- i dont have email on it – i dont want it
- qik was downloaded instantly
what do you think?
