Why I Did Not Get An Iphone

This is the first time in 4 years i am spending money on a phone (had always got a phone with a plan for free). Picked up a Nokia N8 off ebay for AU$400 (RM1200). Still with the original screen protector on it. At first I almost thought it was a rip off. The phone kept crashing. I'd turn on the GPS and viola... crash. Crash crash crash. five times in a day it would restart. It took me one hour just to install one app. Yes, nokia's software team should be lined up and shot.. one by one. Really awesome hardware was being held back by buggy software! I've heard alot about how crappy nokia software support was but wasnt prepared for this. Ovi suite (nokia's sync software) had trouble detecting the phone, stalled during some installations, was unresponsive most of the time, and was just bloody slow.
