I have had this phone for a few days now and feel like I have to tell you about it - I'm quite simply amazed.
Being the kind of person I am it took a big change in my life to get me to take a contract phone - I did my usual of researching everything before deciding on my purchase.
I went for a Galaxy S2 (White) on O2 - 1gb data (as I need Skype chat for business) 100 mins (I dont call people) and 500 texts for £25.50 a month.
I also researched the best place to buy this and have a page about that HERE - it is an affiliate link there.
So, At first I couldn't get mobile internet but it seems this is because the company give you an unlocked phone and just add the Sim card for the network of your choice (saves money) - so you have to set up the APN (Access Point Name).. this involves adding a few details and setting that up on the fone.
If you went to a phone shop they would do this for you but I found I could get the same deal as I have for £31 a month and I wasn't going to pay an extra £132 (£5.50 x 24 months) for a few minutes work.
Set up was a breeze and I can get 3 of 4 bars signal wise in a place where I could get no signal from any other network.
The battery at first doesnt last long (about 7 hours) but that's the same with all batteries of this technology - they need a few charge/discharge cycles until they perform at their optimum.
I was happy with the original battery but I did buy another 'Business Batter' from ebay for £10 which is something like double the mah of the original.
The Apps are amazing - I was on my Mac earlier browsing the apps at Google Play - I saw a 'Solar Charger' which I liked to clicked 'Install' - to my surprise it was installed onto my fone ! I do have the google account linked on my fone and computers but didn't expect that.. amazed.
This solar charger turns the screen into a solar cell (no idea, before you ask) and appears to charge the fone - they say this is genuine but I am going to do further testing before I state that it does work as advertised and is not a joke.
There is so much to do on these fones and I find myself not needing a Traditional computer as much now as I can do just about everything on this fone - not intensive graphics and websites etc but most things.
If your considering a fone I strongly suggest you consider this one.
