Is there a phone out there with a battery life like they used to have that can still let me check facebook every now and then?
I bought a cheap android smart phone (acer liquid metal) last year after my old "dumb" phone - my beloved Nokia 6208
finally carked it. But I am discontented. It has developed an annoying quirk where it refuses to get any reception (in high reception areas) for hours at a time, at all. Additionally, I actively resent having to charge it basically every day, barely use any of the "smart" features beyond very occaisional facebook checking whilst I wait for the train, and the camera - the only bloody thing I might have occasionaly cause to use - is ludicrously bad.
I think I want/need a new phone, and I don't think I need a smart phone. The Nokia Asha 300
looks promising, but I wanted to throw out to ask.me to see if you guys have some better ideas.
Dual Band (i.e. GSM and 3G; I travel for work etc, can't be having no 3G).
Battery that doesn't require charging more than once every three days assuming minimal use.
A camera that is acceptable for snapshots.
Ability to connect to facebook and or check email very occasionally
I don't *love* touch screens, but perhaps I have been burnt on the crappy acer's screen.
Would be pleasant but not even nice to have:
Ability to connect to wifi.
Askme, if there a phone like this for less than $250 dollars?
