Re: Which Phone

Huawei Ascend Y300, fraction of the cost of an iphone and does everything I want, skype, browsing, music, email, decent enough camera, it even makes phone calls. I paid around £70 carphone warehouse sim free, not sure what you would pay over there.

Re: Which Phone

I would stay well clear of an iPhone.... Way over priced. The best make of phone I have used over the last few years is an HTC. Does the same as iPhone and more, so many app are restricted with Apple or you have to buy them. If I we're to go and get a phone tomorrow it would be the HTC one.

Re: Which Phone

I have a Nokia Lumia 720 Windows phone provide by my work and I have to say that it is great. Had an HTC Wildfire with Android before and I prefer the Windows interface. It will not have the number of apps supported like ios and android but it has enough to keep me happy.

Re: Which Phone

In my opinion, the more important aspect is the operating system rather than the phone model or maker. There are a dozen mobile platforms ; Android, Bada, Blackberry, Firefox OS, IOS Apple, Mobile Linux, Nokia Platforms, S60, Symbian OS, Windows CE, Windows Mobile, Windows Phone. That can be wittled down to ; Android, IOS Apple, Symbian OS and Windows mobile.

In my opinion and experience, the most versatile and user friendly system has to be Android. Applications are everything in a smart phone and Android apps out number Apple by a large margine.

The latest version is Kit Kat (I like this name) but even Gingerbread phones are great. That leaves the phone itself, this is like buying a car and is all to do with preferreces ; make, model, engine size, storage capacity, screen size and camara resolution. Complicated, nooo.

Look for the cheapest on line deal, apply the above choices and buy one. Play with it, after all it is an adult toy. Learn what it is you really want in a smart phone, then go for the best you can afford.

Re: Which Phone

I agree to some extent, however, I would argue that the right os on a bad phone is worse than the wrong os on a good phone. The number of times I wanted to throw my old HTC out of the window in frustration, not because it used android but because the phone itself was pants.
