New Phone, want some advice

by pdows47   August 4, 2013  

Hi folks,

Just after some advice and opinions from you guys. My phone is about due for an upgrade, and I can't decide if I should get one of the waterproof ones (like the sony experia z) or a normal one with a dry bag type thing, so it doesn't die if it rains whilst I'm out. I think a waterproof phone is a better idea, as its smaller, but also more expensive, so I'm just wondering what you guys think

What have you got at the moment?

Why do you want waterproof? Do you have it on your bars all the time?

I have an HTC Sensation now. And it spends most of the ride in my pocket so I'd need a waterproof case or waterproof phone so I can still use it

I've got a Galaxy mini and it was really good until I dropped it when I was cycling.

Now its rubbish.

Buy a normal phone, wrap it in cling film when you ride and with the money you save on the more expensive phone buy a garmin.

If your after one for cycling and are not too precious try the huawei at £69.99 from a popular catalog shop. Google android and if it takes a spill it is'nt gonna cost much to replace it
