Interview with tech journalist Paul Hochman spokesperson for www.motorola.com
There are 4 questions you should ask yourself. #1 How big a devise do you want? Some people want a screen that’s huge, they want a tablet they don’t care about small size they don’t want to fit it in a pocket like I do – so that changes everything. Then battery life is the 2nd of the 4 questions. How long do you talk? Do you browse a lot? Are you on constant conference calls with the speaker phone? Well guess what? Battery life if going to matter a lot more to yo0u than it will be to somebody who just keeps in touch occasionally. If you buy extra battery life and you don’t use it it’s a waste of money.
The 3rd consideration is speed.
How much video, for example, do you use? How much navigation will you be doing? - Which will require a fast connection to the network. And the 4th of the 4 is your budget. I mean my phone is $99 with a 2 year contract, that’s not that much compared to some others and it’s more than yet others.
Paul says it’s important to understand that 4G service is better than you might realize.
4G is actually faster than your Wi-Fi network at home. It’s not just faster than Wi-Fi; by the way, it’s 5-10 times faster than your 3G service of years or months gone by. So yes there’s a giant difference. Sometimes it’s incremental but in this case it’s quantum leap.
