PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Oh multitasking. That staple of computing that got thrown out the window with many modern smartphones. We got some rudimentary thing in its place - but even as multitasking on phone and tablets improves, its user-visible side remains cumbersome. Windows 8 has a neat implementation, and now it's time Android follows in it footsteps.

The Razr Maxx has one defining killer feature: Battery life. That is the single most important design decision for that phone, and it's top-notch in that area. I also have friends with that model and they love the fact that they don't have to carry around a charger all the time.

However, that phone wasn't on the table for me, for two reasons. The most important one is that I'm on Sprint and I would go without a phone before I'd choose Verizon as a carrier. They are simply terrible in my area. The other reason is that I wanted a "pure Google" phone if I was going to go back to Android, so I chose the Nexus S above other, better phones.

Now that I've seen how well the iPhone fits my current need for a reliable, solid mobile device, I think I'm done with Android for the foreseeable future. I'm getting to a point where the hobby of tinkering with my phone's OS has to take a back seat to having a device I can count on. I honestly think that even if I had ended up with an HTC One or Note 2 I would have ultimately been frustrated and let down.
