I need to be organised, have a focussed idea of what benefits I can get, but also how useful that would be on a day-to-day basis.
That's why I consider my needs first:
1. Use of my old phone (Nokia N96 - I know, old)
- music player, camera, alarm clock, navigiation (non-internet maps), calling - tried calendar, text message also doesn't really work for me on the system.
- play good music
- have a fantastic camera
- navigation, maps
- useable calendar functionality
- convenient text messaging services (or messengers)
- enough battery life to do this (N96 lasts for about 3-4 days without charging on daily use)
- OS System that I like
- Stunning design
- Original features
- fast internet (H+)
- Fast system (over 1.2 dual-core)
- large display (want to read e-books on it)
- good mail services
- something special that makes it a bit different from what everyone else has
I'm also sure that during my evaluation process, I will find some features most appealing even though I won't even use them in the end. Consumerist approach - it sounds good, so it must be good. I'll try to keep a semi-subjective view when considering the options but I know it will be hard.
