Default 8100 v's 8120

Please Login to Remove!

I am on the verge of purchasing an unlocked 8120, primarily to get the wi-fi. I have presently got the original 8100 and think that it is the best phone that I have ever owned. Anyone have any input as to the usage of the 8120? Better screen? Battery Life? Applications? etc etc.

the 8120 has a higher OS, 4.3 (which if you read around here some people would give their right *** for). Video recording and more.

Worth the upgrade IMO for cleaner fonts, more pleasing UI, plus lots of minor tweaks (for example, love the way it highlights sender's address when you hover over their name). Video, can create folders, the list goes on. Nearly forgot the WiFi.

So do all the 8120's come with OS 4.3? I'm buying an unlocked version from the States, and using it on Rogers network in Canada.

yes, the 8120 ships with 4.3 OS on all carriers. The blue Suncom device runs very smoothly and in the time i played with it i didnt have any issues. Make sure you get a media card or the video will not work
