Time to Switch Off

Sometime last year, I wrote in complaint about the deemed-inefficiency of the battery that powers my Samsung Galaxy SII smart phone. This phone is just over a year old in my possession and I’ve frequently found myself having to recharge the battery on a daily (nightly) basis. I tried various tips at the time of writing that post – some of which, have helped to prolong the duration of the battery’s charge, albeit minutely. But I now believe I’ve found a more definitive solution.

Today, I’d like to have a bit of a rant about Vodafone and 3G service in the West Country. A few weeks before Christmas, I finally succumbed and upgraded my old Nokia model to a smart phone. To be precise; I ignored the wave of the big ‘i’ in Apple and went instead with for the Samsung Galaxy SII; an apparent rival for the iPhone 4S. Samsung’s SIII has been available for a little while now, along with Apple’s iPhone 5. I spent £200 on my model and that was in a refurbished state from en eBay seller… I do believe it works out cheaper in the long run (my monthly sim-only contract costs just £10.50) and I can’t imagine that the very latest models leave any of its predecessors in a permanent state of redundancy.
