Default Storm I & Storm Ii

Please Login to Remove!

So whats the difference?

I own a storm 1 (9500) and I have upgraded the OS to the new 5.0.0.425.
Are there any differences in terms of (speed) (functionality)??

I am aware that the storm 2 has some physical differences. I have watched all the comparison videos.

Question is.... Is it worth it to buy the storm 2 when you have a perfectly functioning storm 1?

Cheers

Yes the storm two will be faster but not to the point where I would go buy it if I already have a 9500. Also the storm two has more memory cor apps and a slightly better screen

SVX90,

methinks you answered your own question. If your current Storm is doing the job, what's the need to upgrade?

It's "worth it" if you have the money and simply want a new toy.

This is a question only YOU can answer. I have a fully functioning Storm 1 and plenty of disposable income to buy the Storm 2. But my Storm 1 is running fine and Ill hang on to it until it starts to look ratty or starts malfunctioning.

Stick with your Storm for now. Odd's are there will be another generation model available before its time to scrap your current phone.
