Mobile phone, or mine at least Update

Garmin Asus A50
I don't do reviews, personal taste when selecting a  phone, but I do read others and leave all that up to the techsperts.

I am a female who has a phone, end of qualifications!

So why do I like my current one?
 
It has GPS, with a lovely lady. without an irritating voice, that tells me politely to turn here or there and gets me from point A to B relatively unscathed. She even goes with the flow when I go off some side road that looks like it goes somewhere . Could I change the voice, probably, but we get along well so why try.

My favourite is the Saved Parking Spot! Wow, never lose my car again, (if I remember to tell it where I left it) and when I tested this out it took me straight to the boot of my car! How cool is that! It even knows that I fill the boot with shopping first, Impressive.

Facebook, where would my  life be without FB!

Email: although my computer takes offense sometimes and says  "use your phone!" in that narky Microsoft generated voice it has.


It has a camera so I can take pickies of my shoes when I am bored waiting for someone.
  • Other things include a calculator (handy but never to be used on a shopping spree or a retail therapy trip) Defeats the purpose if you see those numbers clocking over. Better to wait for bad news and enjoy the day.
  • Mobile TV: useless, an idiot box is what sits in the lounge room only
  • Flight Status: Can see what flights are on time, delayed etc, Handy!
  • Apps Store: No shoes or chocolate so haven't been back to that shop
  • Calendar: Use it sometimes
  • EBay: Handy!
  • Google goggles: Love the name so have that one, Apparently shows me stuff but I don't use it.
  • Games Store: Not this little black duck!
It has lots of other things that I don't need and don't use. Someone else with the same phone probably does.
It is one of those "drag and drop icon" things so anything I do use is handy for me.

Oh and is Android platform! Woo there geek talk for it has a little green man that pops up, quite cute.


Oh and it's a phone too, can set ring tones and pickies for all my contacts, but stick to one noise for all or I wouldn't know if it was mine ringing!

Only drawback (apart from the monthly bill) is I can charge it in my car, off my computer but it didn't come with a wall plug in whatsy, but have one at Mum's that I snaggled off my brother so I could prob buy one. I am one of those people who believe things come in the box, and if I needed one it would have been in there.

So would I recommend that you buy one? 
No way! It was my choice, you make your own 
but I do love it!

UPDATE: 
(not that boring you must restart your computer things!)

They don't make phones like that anymore, just plain, all us women want, phones. Although I do love the qwerty keyboard
