I am looking for the right smartphone and plan for me. Any ideas?
So I am a tech gadget fanatic in DSLR's and high end desktop PC's. Because of this I have never really had much of a budget or a desire to get into smart phones. However of late I started bicycling and that made me realize that having an outdoor GPS would be fantastic while on trails.
Also eh, my Harmony One Universal remote started failing so I figure I could kill two birds with one device by buying a nice smartphone companion device to be my universal remote and my gps while trails. While I am at it I could make it my alarm clock too. It would be cool to watch movies or play mp3's on my breaks and lunches at work too.
I am not really after much call functionality, just an hour or two a week would be more than sufficient for calls outside of wifi areas. I have never been big on texting either because I got over the days of instant messaging back in the early 2000's when I moved away from text rpgs.
Anyways so yeah. I am after cheap call services, meh data plan, but a good device to get things done with. I was looking at the Motorolla G LTE or whatever that is that has the expansion slot, but then realized it does not have an IR blaster....I was hoping I could use Tracphone because of the price, but might end up with AT&T go service.. Dunno!
Yeah so what do you all suggest?
