I have never bothered getting a smart phone for one reason and another. For the past 7 years I have had 2 trusty Nokia's and before that I had a sony for 2 years.

In a few weeks the Samsung s4 comes out and I intend to purchase and I am quite excited. I don't want to sound like a mobile phone salesman but the phone looks incredible and the specs blow most other smart phones out of the water.

The reason for this thread is to get some feedback on using this forum on your travels. I only use this site when at work or at home on my laptop.

So... is it user friendly on your phone, what is the speed like (ignoring todays problems) and is there any differences between using this site on your laptop and phone?

When I do get this phone be prepared for more regular WhiteBic comments Evil or Very Mad

Yeah the site works fine on my phone and mine is a good 2 years old.

Have fun with the S4.

I'm not the best to give mobile phone advice but a couple of things you should watch out for is the battery life of your phone - some do seem to run out quickly and taking your phone abroad - watch out for the cost of using it in foreign country's.

I'm sure others will be able to give you loads more advice than this.

I only ever use my iPhone to post on here, speeds are fine even if I turn 3G off.

I have a s3. The battery can drain rapid so turn all your energy savers on and your Bluetooth off. Access to the net is tremendous on my s3, however it is very easy to "fat finger" and post twice or mispell.
There are loads of apps and if you like your ale, cask finder, perfect pint, aa pub guide and a subscription CAMRA guide are perfect for smart android phones.
Trip advisor do some city guide apps for free and in Berlin recently this was tremendous. Ensure you get a wifi link at home and anywhere you can when your out to save on your data use. Switch your data roamin off when your abroad so you don't get stung for costs, switch on when you need it.
Sorry for going on, with no intention of insulting your intelligence.
Enjoy!
PS PM me if you need ask anything, I'm no expert but I have a mate who was in the same boat as you before Christmas, he's a Samsung wizard now lol!!

My phone has people's names in it and I can ring them up.

It's well smart.

It's a phone. You ring folk up. You can get on the internet. You can send e-mails. Whoppee do.

If this sort of thing excites you I advise getting out more. Don't waste you life on shite like this.

I'd recommend installing Comodo battery saver on any Samsung phone, you can set it to automatically turn things off that you are not using. Comodo internet security is also really good on your computer (it's free as well).

This site is fine on a mobile (obviously depends on your network).

Standard Whittam comment there I see. With my new Samsung I can read more of your whitty posts and comment a lot more on your Behind enemy lines threads. Watch out.

For a supposedly "Super Queen of World Commerce" you'd expect a smart phone to be top of the list of "personal tools", most ordinary businessmen I know have them. However if you are only "pretending" and stopping locked up in your bedroom 24/7 then there is no requirement cos nobody will ring you up and your cauliflower fingers can mature on your"486"!

I have a mobile phone. It lives in the glove compartment of my car in case of breakdown or attack by mad Dutch gingers.

If someone needs to get hold of me they can ring the phone on my desk at work or the phone in my front room.

I once met a guy quite high up at Samsung who told me mobile phones/blackberrys etc were the greatest invention ever - not because they were particularly special or ground breaking, but simply because every knobber in the world had to have one, it turned people into lemmings.

If a phone excites you then fair enough. It's a big world out there though and you're wasting it looking at a little screen. Don't buy the phone, spend the cash on a trip to somewhere you've never been and experience life.

Trust me, you'll feel better about yourself.

That would be worthwhile advice if it hadn't come from someone who has posted 9000+ comments in 16 month, whilst looking at a slightly bigger screen.

Thanks for the advice Nat, much appreciated, but tell me how does it work, a wag that doesn't shag? Are you a new breed, a platonic wag?

I have an iPhone 4S, After 5 minutes of looking at the screen my eyes go boggled, so if I'm not on my home pc, I use my iPad.

The Samsung S4 is going to blow most other smartphones clean out of the water. Better battery life than the S3 as well.

But you don't know where I was when I posted them though. I wrote 'Behind Enemy Lines' while waiting for a bus in Borneo.

You make the mistake of thinking I'm the one doing the chasing. Nuggy never stops calling, one of the reasons I don't have a mobile in my purse. I can take or leave him to be honest. I'm certainly in no rush to lose my 10 year virginity.

Everybody and their dog has an Iphone or a Samsung but I've never bothered and for the most part use computers for online stuff (or borrow the missus' Iphone) and a phone for receiving calls. I spend about a fiver a month on calls I make. Recently I've been thinking of getting smart phone, just to have a separate number for a new business I'm setting up but I can't decide. One son tells me the Samsung has limited apps - but the apps he uses are shit anyway. Also noticed that getting into the world of phone contracts is a bit like a first time buyer getting into the housing market. There are so many loyalty incentives for long-term users it costs a fair few quid to get in at ground level. Still on the fence about it. I use Skype a lot - is that easy enough on either phone? Facetime on my IMac is OK but not many people seem to use it. And does it work with 2G? I imagine I'll be dead before we get 3G in rural Norfolk.

Probably does far more than I am even aware of, never mind knowing how to do it, when I am aware of it.
