      For some reason, the mrs has bought me an HTC phone today. Smartphone? Saw something in the bumph about android, so I posted in here ;)

      F**ked if I know what to do with it. I'll just have to wait til one of the boys comes round, and he can deal with it ;D

      Don't even know what's wrong with the phone I have. I can make and answer calls and send texts, who needs more than that?

      Awesome. You can now jump out of a Hercules and take photos of some bint covered in feathers while you plummet towards the ground at 122 mph.

      I've had the S3 for a month now and binning my iPhone 4 was the best thing I ever did.

      I can use my phone in work texting, brosing, playing games and tweeting and go home with half a battery left. Being able to carry a spare battery if needed is also a huge benefit compared to the iphone. Can't fault it at all.

      hey i am considering buying my first android phone after losing my 2nd iphone in 3/4 years. i have gone through all the phones and read  the reviews  but i still have some questions, and if you android users could answer them then it would be great.

      Whats the difference between android 2, android 4, jellybean and sandwich?
      If i buy a phone with android 2,3 firmware like samsung s2. can i then upgrade the S2 to android 4.0 via a usb cable the manufacturers give you?
      how userfriendly are the android phones? does android phones have a app store?

      so far i am considering buying Samsung S2, S3, LG optima 4xHD or the sony one from skyfall movie? anybody got any experience from these phones?

      Samsung S2 is the one i am leaning towards since it got raving reviews when it was released (2011) and its cheaper then s3.

      I lost my iphone so i really dont want to use too much cash on a phone that i have never used before, so i was thinking of buying S2 then upgrade it to android 4.0. If i like android and samsung phones then i can splash the money on the samsung s4 when it gets released.

      all suggestions and tips would be greatly appreciated.

      Bilbo, you should be able to get the s3 cheaper now.  I dont think you should get the s2, it will be out of date a lot sooner.   Im not sure the s2 can use jelly bean.  So the safe bet is the s3 out of those.  If money isnt a option then id go with the note 2.  Dont let the size put you off.  You will get used to it really fast.

      Just received two 7" Android tablets from China for the girls for Xmas courtesy of their Nan, going to spend the rest of the night trying to release my windows addled brain to latch onto making the tablets kid friendly whilst installing angry birds et al that the t'interweb has  kindly cast upon me.

      S3 seems the right choice there bill. Reviews and people who I know who have one suggest its the best out there.

      I have a Blackberry Bold 9900 and I cannot tell you how much I hate the thing! Wish i'd gone down the Galaxy route.

      I've got the HTC One X and it's is easily the best phone I've had after a couple of other excellent one's from HTC.

      Can't comment on the one's you've listed as I've never used them but when holding the S3 in store it just didn't feel as quality as the One X which is a beautifully designed phone.

      No time for a long-winded reply at the minute but my understanding is that Jellybean WILL be available for the S2 by the end of the year.
      On the whole, Galaxy's aren't QUITE as user friendly as iPhones but once you're used to them, they're more powerful and flexible and a few of my mates with I Phones are planning to get the S3 asap, after finally conceding that it's the better phone.
      As for the App Store question, we have an equivalent called Google Play which is basically the same but with far more free stuff.
      I still love my S2 but the S3 is obviously an upgrade, PLUS it's 4G ready.

      Very seriously thinking of moving over to Andorid for the iPhone. Probably the Nexus 4, maybe the HTC One. Now that Google Music is available in Ireland has had a huge say in this really as it covers iTunes, one of the main reasons I was so Apple-centric.

      Just bought a used Windows Phone 8 to give a go for the rest of my contract after being on Android for quite a while now.

      Staying with HTC it quite like the look of the Windows OS.

      Never mentioned I pre ordered the Sony Xperia Z and got it when it came out at the end of Feb, going from a Blackberry Curve to it was a huge leap, love it, and love using Android.
      Just wondering if anyone else has the problem of android constantly disconnecting from a wifi source?

      Never had a problem with this although I've always had HTC on Android.

      Maybe that's where you've went wrong. ;)

      I've still got a Galaxy S2 on Android and that's never been an issue for me either. Sometimes when u go to my dad's place it will try to connect to public wi-fi rather than his secure network but they're both on the same router as it was formerly his business network so that's not too surprising.

      I'm still very happy to stay with Android but next upgrade I think I might try the HTC One, rather than the Galaxy S4. It looks a very nice phone.

      If you do get that I don't think you'll be disappointed Rep.

      HTC are great phones.

      Well well well...

      I'm not going to act like an Apple fan and deny that there are any faults with my device, no matter how many times I have to do a hard reset or take it to an Apple store for repair (this happens a lot, both the faults and the denial).

      My Galaxy S2 is fu**ed!

      Last Thursday, I took it out of my pocket to find it had zero signal. Being on O2, I had the same issue last year when the network went down so called them. They said there were no reported problems.
      I tried my SIM in a different handset and sure enough, full signal. I then tried a friend's O2 SIM in my S2 and nothing.

      Called my insurers who said that my phone was still under warranty with Samsung (at that point I wondered why I'd bothered taking out insurance. 2 year contract, 2 year warranty. Anyway...)

      I phoned Samsung who went through the steps you'd expect, including the ones already suggested by O2 and eventually told me to back it up and do a factory reset. I've done this now and it's still no use.

      Sooo, off to the repair centre it goes, once the courier gets in touch, that is. Should be repaired / replaced and returned to me for free, provided they accept it's not my fault! :roll:

      It's 18 months old now but still, you expect your phone to see out it's contract!


      On a side note, I had a quick look at the htc One and Sony Xperia Z in Carphone Warehouse the other day, they seem HUGE compared to what I'm used to.
