    I know this is an Apple forum but people with multiple devices can help me. I have an iPhone 5 and I carry an iPad air at&t everyday with me so my iPhone has no apps and I don't watch videos or belong to any social media. I need a good phone for calling (Call clarity), great email platform and easy to type on (I dislike typing on my iPhone)

    A 5S or 5C will not help me with my keyboard.
    Galaxy S5 is too big.

    What else?

    Merci.

    My advice is to go to your carrier store and play with the phones. What might be right for me may not be right for you. I personally have no issue typing on the phone but it's not for everyone. You won't know until you try them out.

    A Galaxy S3 and a Nexus aren't too big or too small. They seem to be just the right size IMO.

    Blackberry maybe? Or one of the many android phones with a custom keyboard. Nexus 5 comes to mind. Sony makes some good ones too.

    Apple is in big trouble spending 3.2 billion for beats audio highest paid for any company so forget the iPhone because Apple will be going out of business while Dr.Dre Becomes a billionaire. Lol

    Seems like it will make more people start using iPhones. Now I'm staying with Apple in the long run. Its not going to die out as quickly as BlackBerry did now that it has Beats.

    The keyboard on BlackBerry is amazing and you can sideload apps from Android too.

    As stated above, go to a store where you can play around with multiple devices and the best one for you. Best Buy, Walmart, radio shack, or your carrier store will have multiple phones for you to demo.

    Haha I know what you mean. Go try out all the phones like other previous people have said and choose which best fits you. Unfortunately most phones have a large screen size so I think a blackberry might be best.

    Go try it out first though.

    Building on the suggestions to consider Blackberry, the Z10 or Q10 may be good candidates. I know from prior experience with RIM/Blackerry that your criteria for email and calling can likely be met.
    The carriers network will have some influence on the latter criteria.

    BlackBerry phones, smartphones, cell phones, & mobile devices from AT&T

    Thanks guys! I ordered directly with Blackberry USA a new black Z10 unlocked for $220 shipped (with a Crackberry coupon code) and a 30 day return policy.

    You will be happy with a Z10. The screen is a bit larger than your iphone 5 and the virtual keyboard is amazing, especially its predictions.

    You need a phone that's good for calling/mails/work + a fast and a nice looking keyboard. I'd say go for a blackberry 10 device.
    Either the z10, since you dislike the screen size, or a q10 if you hate virtual keyboards, you won't miss a lot using a blackberry. You will get android apps + some native good apps. plus it's cheap.


    Gratz for your pick. Hope you enjoy it Don't miss the leaks! It's always fun loading them to discover new stuff

    Go with a samsung phone. I've always done well with them. You can find samsung phones with everything you want and they will never break.

    Yes the poster, again, has already purchased a phone. He has got a Z10.
    Samsung phone never breaking? I beg to differ.
