An interesting comment that we touched on earlier, also contained the anonymous users views on hardware, quality, pricing, and functionality. Yet again I’m curious as to what other people’s views are on this subject.
General overview on different manufacturers, from low to high quality:
Motorola: Atrix line — Fast Processor, Nice Concept, Awful MotoBlur, Awful quality, Awful Price
Droid line — Slow/Medium Processor, Awful MotoBlur, Poor quality, Slightly Overpriced
Defy line — Slow Processor, Awful MotoBlur, Better quality, Rightly Priced.
Tablets – Fast Processor, Nice Concept, Medium Quality, Awful Price.
Huawei: Ideos line — Slow Processor, Functional Concept, Low quality, Low Price
LG: All lines, Good Specs, Good Concepts, Slightly Overpriced, Random Quality
Tablets: Great Specs, Great Concepts, Slightly Overpriced, Random Quality
LG needs to pay attention to quality, especially battery and design.
Samsung: Galaxy line — medium processor, bad touchwiz(lag), good hardware quality (except GPS)
awful OS quality, overpriced. (Impoved with the 4G in a do over, not enough
done to merit Samsung another chance).
First Androids (Moment/Cliq) — slow Processor, awful touchwiz, good quality, over priced
Nokia: All lines: Excellent Hardware, Good Concepts, Poor OS (Worse with win7), Great Quality, but
HTC: All lines: Good Specs, Good Concepts, Great HTC Sense. Great Hardware, Properly Priced.
Hardware quality could improve slightly (no plastic, look at details like Apple).
Apple: All lines: Medium Specs, Good Concepts, Great UI, Excellent Hardware, Overpriced. OS has
drawbacks, and Communist/Dictator like behavior in their business model, is
why I stay away from it.
Blackberry was not included, as they don’t have a decent smartphone that can be part of this category. If we needed to include the Storm or other units offered by them, it would be worse than Motorola.
What are your thoughts?
