To choose which Phone to use as my Daily Driver

It’s the small details that counts when choosing which phone that should be my daily driver. I am blogging from my phone, so for example the Cliptray feature on the LG G2 is incredible useful for me. That feature saves everything I copy into a cool looking clipboard menu. From that menu I can choose what I want to paste from a long list of items by just sliding left or right and tap on the item I want. Very useful when blogging, because then I can copy all the URL’s or quotes that I want to link to in the article.

Another detail is that I read a lot of ebooks on my phone, and when I can’t read, I let the phone read them out loud for me by using Google’s Text-to-speech service, for example in the car. And in the car I don’t want to fiddle with cables and so on, so I want the car to automatically connect to my phone over Bluetooth. That worked perfectly fine with my Samsung Galaxy S3 running CyanogenMod 10.2, and now also with the LG G2. But not with the Sony Xperia Z1 because it always starts the Walkman app and plays the music that the phone has. No matter what, and I can’t seem to turn that feature off, it doesn’t even matter if I disable the Walkman app, then the phone tries to start that app and when it can’t find it it just stops playing. And yes I have tried to use Son’y Smart Connect app for this, but that doesn’t help either! It tried to start the Walkman app anyways! In fact in the Smart Connect the Walkman app is available and greyed out so I can’t delete it as a task when connecting to my car! Stupid…

And of course, another important thing is to have a smaller phone but with bigger display… The LG G2 has a 5.2-inch display but in a smaller package. It has the same size as the 4.8-inch Samsung Galaxy S3, where the 5-inch Sony Xperia Z1 has the same size as the Galaxy Note 2…

It’s the small details that makes a difference.
