  1. I still prefer iPhone rather than the Android…I don’t know why…Maybe because I am already used to it…

    • @Clark Minn: I agree with you, it depends which phone you are using now and if the phone delivers good performance, then you will stick with it. For example, I’m using Google Nexus S and I’m very satisfy with its performance. :)

  2. If you don’t need to use your cellular for work receiving e-mail etc.. so I phone is the best!

  3. I still have my conventional phone with me. As long as i can send a message or call, then that’s it. I don’t want a more complicated life.

  4. What ever phone would I ever had as long as it give me satisfaction I”ll stick to it..
