size38: I want to buy HTC HD 7 windows phone. How good is it?
Its a good phone but it has plenty limitations.. the number one limitation is that it has only 8gb internal memory without an option of expansion with a memory card
2. These are windows mobile specific limitation or draw backs..
* No system-wide file manager
No Bluetooth file transfers
No USB mass storage mode
Limited third-party apps availability
No Flash (nor Silverlight) support in
the browser
Too dependent on Zune software for
file management and syncing
No video calls
New ringtones available only through
the Marketplace (fixed in Mango)
Music player lacks equalizer presets
No multitasking (fixed in Mango)
No copy/paste (fixed in NoDo)
No DivX/XviD video support (automatic
transcoding provided by Zune
software)
No sign of free Bing maps Navigation
so far (fixed in Mango)
No internet tethering support (fixed
in Mango)
No handwriting recognition support

How much do u have to buy a phone? i might b able to suggest another option for you.

for a laptop in the range of 80k
i ll suggest
1.dell inspiron N5040 -
RAM- 4GB
Processor-Intel Core i3 380M Processor @
2.53GHz
Hard disk size - 500gb
gpu- hp integrated HD graphics 3000
price: around 86 000




2.hp 2000-350us
processor: Pentium 2.1 GHz
Installed Memory: 4 GB
Hard Drive: 500 GB
gpu- hp integrated HD graphics 3000
price-around 79k

All these laptops i ve prescribed are pretty decent laptops for your price range. but if u want a very graphics capable laptop u shud look for laptops that have standalone gpu such as ATI RADEON & NVIDIA graphics cards. you will see the inscriptions on the laptop. but they are kinda xpensive sha.

Based on what u ve said i take it that u can handle a large phone? Based on features, basically on RAM and CPU. I will advice you to go for note II. The note II has 2 gb of ram and it has extra 200mhz more on each cpu core than galaxy s3.
And for your second question nigerian pple value size not the features in it. So u ll b beta of buying the note 10.1.
Re: Need Advice On The Type Of Phone Or Laptop To Buy? Here's The Place by purplespecimen: 8:35pm On Nov 01, 2012
Thanks for your reply. Got the note II today and its blown my mind. thanks once again

Kslib: The nigerian price for dell inspiron 14z core i3... How to know if it's brand new or refurbished..
its about 125k. You can tell if a dell laptop has been refurbished in the following ways;
a. it will have a red tag at the bottom saying its been refurbished.
b. at the bottom of the laptop there is usually a place they write 'void if torn'. if the label is torn, your laptop mayb refurbished.
c. if you receive a laptop in a sealed box and the laptop has small scratches and sign of wear on the keyboard, top bezel of the screen, nd loose usb ports (loose usb ports can also b a factory default).
