I have grown tired of the iOS that I am now teetering a buying frenzy for the best DROID device. Sadly, there is no such thing as a consummate gadget, which means that no matter how powerful your device is, there is always be a trade off. Because each consumer has an assortment of needs, any electronic device can never be perfect for anyone.
Droid version is something that might not be essential at the moment since Froyo(or perhaps Gingerbread and Honeycomb) is already marching towards the horizon for those devices still at Eclair stage.
So let's see the three Android devices that I am stalking at, and see what makes them grin and grimace:
1) Samsung Captivate Galaxy S(SRP Php22,000)
✔Super AMOLED Screen, high contrast ratio and is vibrant even in direct sunlight
✔Screen made of Gorilla Glass(from Corningware) which claims to be impervious to virtually any scratches
✘Samsung TouchWiz sucks
✘no Camera flash
✘available only for AT&T
2) HTC Desire HD(Php33,000)
✔large 4.3" screen
✔HTC Sense UI is a delight
✘only uses LCD
✘because it has a relatively large screen, the battery tend to be a tad too short
3) HTC Desire Z(Php26,000)
✔HTC Sense is really cool
✘moving parts can get brittled in time
Why did I not include the Samsung Galaxy S which is available in the Philippines? Well, I don't like the too-rounded corners in a device, which simply put, I don't like how it looks like. And if my pals at HTC are reading this, please mull over(at the very least) a feasibility of creating an HTC Incredible Droid GSM version.
