Handphone recommendations or suggestions?

Do you remember reading about How do I know I am not hip and cool? 


If you have not read it or forgotten about it... you may want to read it first...


Because... I got reminded of how not hip and cool I am....

AGAIN




How?





I have been having problems with one of my handphone battery (I have a spare)... 
It doesn't seem to charge very well and it gets flat way too fast..
The mobile phone is still working perfectly fine though.. 
How do I know?? 
Because I have a spare battery leh!


Anyway...so how did I get reminded of how un-cool or un-hip I am again?!




I was at Funan trying my luck.. it seems to be the logical choice given how many tech shops it has...
This conversation played out in the shopS that I checked...

Me: Excuse me....


Salesperson: Ya?


Me: Hi, do you sell hTc handphone batteries?


Salesperson: Which one?


Me: I'm using hTc Dream...




Salesperson:

It's not THAT old what... and it's still working PERFECTLY FINE!!!...
hTc Dream leh.. one of the first Android phones.. it was SOOOOO cool... I'm not usually an early adopter...

Hmm.. in any case.. I think I better start searching for my next handphone...
JUST IN CASE!
