What is your ideal mobile phone?
Working at Telstra, something my friends ask me a lot is “what is the best mobile that I could get?” Sometimes I feel like this question is on par with Augustus Gloop from Willy Wonka walking into his Chocolate Factory and the Oompa Loompas saying: “you can have just one chocolate, which one would you like?”
The reason for this is that “the best mobile” really depends on what you want to use it for (apart from making calls). Introducing… the perfect mobile phone (in my humble opinion).
Firstly, this phone would have to have the Nokia Lumia 920′s camera – it is simply flawless. The PureView technology means crystal-clear, blur-free photos and the vibrancy of the colours, even at night, are breathtaking.
On the music front, this mobile would have to have Windows Phone 8X’s ‘Beats Audio’ technology. The Windows Phone 8X has the kind of sound NASA scientists could only dream about when Armstrong first settled on the moon.
In terms of interface, anything Android would suit me quite well. The SWIPE keyboard is enough to please my text-happy thumbs and access to apps and Google Play is easy enough for even my grandma to figure out (especially now that Telstra customers can bill Google Play purchases straight to their Telstra bill!)
I love the capabilities of the big screen on the new Samsung Galaxy Note II, never again will I be competing with my brother to try and get the smallest phone on the market. Size does matter and when it comes to phones, the bigger the better.
Finally, the ‘pinch-to-zoom’ of the iPhone and the way it seamlessly syncs your music with iTunes would complete my ideal-o-phone.
I’m fairly certain that a whole of copyright and patent laws will prevent this mobile from ever hitting the market… but you can always dream.
