The screen on the Ipod Touch 5 is fantastic but I'm not sure I like the size. My HTC smartphone is 4.3" but it is a bit too bulky. Guess there isn't anything perfect to tell the truth.
I think Walmart has the SGII without a contract available, at least a week ago I saw the display saying as much. BUT at the nearest store to me, the clerk told me some guy bought all they had left. Guess I know what his plans are for them.
The updrade to the HD was well worth it to me, no regrets at all especially after doing a trade in.
Yesterday I read all threads I could find, Watched Mobile Tech Review and a few others on YouTube. Amazon has it for $203 right now. So I've just ordered it.
You have to understand. I have a $400 LG Vortex I use more than anything. The screen on it you'd probably hate. 3.2", 320 x 480 pixels with Pixel density of 180 ppi. I've read plenty of books of on it. The problem is it's my phone and lifeline. The battery life sucks if I use it alot. I get maybe a day charge on it and with heavy use that's half a day. I need my phone so the SGP will allow me to enjoy everything I do on my phone without losing battery.
I ordered a nice TPU gel skin in gray for it. It comes with a screen guard. I got it on eBay for $12. So I'm all set.
It's my early birthday present. My bday falls right after Black Friday so I always get the big stuff early. I was going to get a KFHD but I can't see giving up $200 for something I already own for a new screen and audible reading the books when I can do that with my Sansa Clip. I'm still eyeing the paperwhite but they are not in stock and I am waiting to see if the QC picks up.
