      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.

      ;)


      Is the One on Android OS?

      It's processor is faster than my laptop.

      Getting the S4 on Friday after an upgrade.

      Paying £26 a month for unlimited everything and a free phone. Very happy with that, wasn't really impressed by the iPhone 5 so fancied a change. ;D

      Yes, mate. Think it currently ships with Jellybean.

      You're right about the processor, ridiculously fast. The S4 was rumoured to come with 8 cores but the units available in the UK are actually "only" quad.
      I just fancy a change and although the One will be running exactly the same Android OS as the S4, it does have it's own tweaks and the handset has a real quality feel to it. That said, my contract runs until October so there could be other stuff about by then.

      Got the S4 then, highly recommend it to anyone. The screen is crazy good.

      Yeah, I've heard the screen looks awesome.

      Got my S2 back by the way, Samsung collected, repaired and returned it for free under warranty. The problem was wear to the SIM card reader or something but they replaced a few things, including the screen  :)

      Still regret jumping from HTC to the Iphone train a few years back. Loved the HTC.

      Hard to switch back because I coach both my sons football teams and there's masses of admin which the mrs does most of so being able to sync her phone and ipad to mine makes life easier.

      I'm sure that's an excuse that 50/50 incompetence and laziness but I'm sticking to it!

      HTC would be my advice for what it's worth mate.

      I don't have the One but had the One X and now trying HTC's Windows Phone and it would take a very special phone to tempt me away from HTC.

      Seeing how everyone is htc vs samsung.  Im going to throw my view of it.

       Owned the htc mytouch 4g.  I loved the phone, only had a problem with the battery.  Which I had to replace. 

      Was lookinh for the htc one x+, but that never came to my provider.  So I went with the galaxy note 2.  I have never been happier with my decision.  Im not sure on the newer htc phones, but these current samsung devices are just so easy to mod.  Ive installed a custom rom and it just improves everything of the phone.  I can even overclock the processor if I wanted. 

       Next phone will be a samsung, but ill have to wait till this contract is done.

      I got the Samsung S4 today for my phone upgrade. Had the HTC Droid2 phone. Love the S4 already and only had it for 5 hours so far. It looks so sharp.

      Just picked up the galaxy note III, only had it switched on for about an hour, mostly just updates for the phone and its apps so far.  Got a free Galaxy Gear thrown in, not sure if I'll use it.

      Any of you android owning parents know how to make a tablet/TV stick kid safe? In a free way? The girls have got both but I found the oldest searching for a less than wanted search term on you tube the other day and I want to block all that. I've looked at kid mode etc but they all want a monthly fee and they're easily beaten.

      Purchased the samsung galaxy s5.

      Previous owner of the s3 and s4.

      Loving the new design, screens quality is clear to see and the size is just right for me. Just hope the battery life is better than before.

      Motorola Moto G.

      Got this a few weeks back to use until my contract is up butit is that good that I think I'm going to stick with it and get sim free or even PAYG as it does everything a phone needs to do and very well indeed.

      I'm used to top end phones and apart from the camera, which is this phones major weakness, I can't find a fault and a reason to shell out big money for a contract again just to have a top end phone.

      Seriously thinking of getting the OnePlus One phone. After leaving my Nexus on a beach in Ibiza, I need something! Using my old iPhone 4 and the contrast between that and the Nexus is massive.

      The OnePlus One is  a CyanogenMod phone - a version of Andorid, sort of like the Nexus, which was Google. This phone also uses a weird feature to first allow you to purchase the phone - you have to get an invite to buy one first. The price is surprisingly decentm considering the specs. My only worry is the large size of it.

      I'd think carefully before spending that much on a Chinese phone LL.

      Don't get me wrong the spec you get for the money is fantastic but I've had one, albeit a cheaper one, and the quality was very poor and connectivity always seemed to be a problem.

      Cheers. Ya I've been looking into it more, and it looks like it's not fully supported in Ireland in terms of coverage. Like the only bands it uses with Three is 4G.

      Think I could be better off waiting for the Nexus 6. It is due soon I would imagine. Funny to see the price of the iPhone 6 when the spec is the same as the Nexus 4, a phone they brought out a few years ago. That Nexus 4 was a cracking phone too.

      Aye. They are a pain in the ass to get set up and getting 3g coverage means constantly changing the settings.

      That one is a higher spec of course so should be better but at that money I'd be very wary.

      So much for not using the Gear, every blooming day at work, it's come in so handy.  Love the Note III and now, finally, amazon prime streaming is available on Android, I don't think I'll take my laptop on weekends away.

      Getting a new one later this month, choosing between the HTC One M8 and LG G3. Leaning towards the LG G3 because it has a great QHD screen and a better camera. But the One M8 is the better looking phone, and more well rounded. Haven't completely made my mind up yet!

      HTC desire 316 the best phone I've ever had,  got it 6 months ago,  and still not board of it.  Great for watching TV and sports,  can even watch youtubeonfire on it,  and works well with XBMC.

      That new Xperia arrived today - seems a mightly impressive bit of kit - certainly made the best 'first impression' on me of any phone I've had. 

      At the cheaper end of the market I also had a go of the Moto G 4G today.  What a brilliant phone that is. 

      If you want the pure Android experience without it being skinned all over then at £125 sim free that has to easily be the best priced smartphone out there.  And it's got a quad core processor in.  It actually felt a lot faster than the Galaxy S4 I had previously and it must be a third of the price.

      Agree.

      Great phone although I went for the standard version as I don't have any real need for 4G at the minute.

      Still debating whether to go for a top end phone next month or stay with the Moto G for a while as it really is as good as you say.

      My uncle's got the new 5 inch version (which is also 3G only but can take two sims) so hopefully I can have a look at that this weekend - you're right 4G isn't massively important.  If I had owned that Moto then I would have struggled to find a solid financial argument as to why to spend £400 on another phone.

      How's that camera? I'm on a OnePlus One atm. I've been able to upgrade my deal for a while now but there's not been a phone that I've felt was worth locking into a 24-month deal since the horrific experience I had halfway into the deal with my HTC One (M7). Luckily the OPO was there to save the day.

      The only Android phones that have interested me this year is the OnePlus 3 (although they could of upgraded the battery) and the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 after not being a big fan of the S7 & S7 edge, a wander in to the Samsung shop in L1 and I fell in love with the Note.

      But then like all of my great infatuations, I found out they blow up. So I guess that one's out. Guess it's just wait for the 2016 Nexus?
