My first cell phone was a Nokia 1610 and I was pretty happy with it. From then on I always used to upgrade to the next Nokia.
Until I had the chance to switch to a Blackberry, whch was a relevation to me.
The Blackberry, it was a curve i think, was absolutely awesome and one of the best phones I ever had.
Over time it got outdated though, and the Blackberry Bold had display problems.
My boss already had a HTC Desire for quite some time at that point and was quite happy with it.
So I ended up getting one too, and never regretted it.
Don't get me wrong, I gripped about not having a proper keyboard, lack of memory at one point, and other things.
I do not lke change, not at all!
Not when it affects my daily life that much!
But for about 2 Years I had a reliable phone that helped me doing my job and providing UKW radio and mp3s when I had to use public transportation.
The most needed contacts where always just a fingertip away.
December 2012 it started to act up though, random reboots and the battery life stated to be degrading.
The random reboots are very likely from running Android for two years with trying out all kinds of apps.
(I never took the time to backup the settings, clean the phone, and then restore my stuff.)
T-Mobile Austria did not carry any HTC phones with Android at that time, so I looked for a different brand to replace my Desire.
So since I do like my Galaxy Tab I looked at the Samsung Galaxy S3.
To make it short: It arrived last week, in marble white:
