Simbion was similar. Those phones were incredible workhorses – dare I say nicer than anything we have today. When a Nokia e71 could get days of battery while actually using it, combined with a really nice QWERTY keyboard built in. It unfortunately had an amazingly overpriced screen reader – but for its time, it was amazing, and still remains, along with flip phones, the batterylife king. It however was able to have things installed, like twitter, skype, along with a few other services. I never did get to look at Windows Mobile or PalmOS, which is unfortunate.
I’m also of the opinion that, for most intents and purposes, Apple is very overpriced for what you actually get. They seem to do the exact opposite to their computers as they do with phones – a 6 year old potentially 10s of thousands of dollars Mac pro can be discontinued from receiving updates, despite its powerful processor, at the drop of a hat, simply because apple wants you to buy a new one. With Android, there is so much more of a variety in regards to price. And, for the end user, responsiveness of the screen reader is not effected, especially in 2020, from a $150 device to a $1000 one.
I’m waiting for 5g to really take off here to make any sort of judgement on that. It needs to become more widespread and the modems need to become less power hungry for me to care much about it, at this point. The cost isn’t worth it to me personally right now.
