What phone to get?

Recommended Posts

I get to upgrade my phone 6 months early, next week, but I dont know what phone to upgrade to. Currently got a Blackberry Bold. Which phone or phones what you recommend for me to get. Ive heard the iphone 4S and Samsung S2 are good phones but I like the look of the new Blackberry Bold Torch also!

The Samsung Galaxy S 2 is the best phone on the market. Take this from someone who had an iPhone for 2 years.

 

It's the same if not better in every department to the iPhone 4s, better battery with Juice Defender and simply the best camera on the phone. Ultra slim and slight. The only down side is, is that it is quite large in terms of length but it doesn't bother me in the slightest.

 

Here is a video of Biscan I took on the Galaxy S 2

I have the S2 and it is amazing. Although I wouldn't count on there not being something better in 6 months. The rumoured specs for the S3 (in approx 10 months or so) are mind blowing. I can't remember exactly, will have a look, but it might be worth waiting for.

 

Edit: I misread tho OP. If its here and now, get the S2. You wont regret it.

Just reading up on the nexus, looks nice. I think I'd swerve the SII and get the Nexus which is out on 17th apparently.

There's two better phones out in the next 2weeks let alone 6 months.

 

Note is out today and Nexus in a few weeks.

Yes on the Apps.

 

I have the original Samsung and I love it, but was playing with the s2 and its simply brilliant. My upgrade isnt due until a while but right now i'd go for the S2.

No idea why, but this just came up on my tivo box when I was browsing youtube vids.

Quite interesting and not something you normally think of when buying a phone. It probably should be, though, as just about everyone I've ever know who's had an iPhone has cracked the screen at some point.

So basically the Samsung S2 is like the iphone 4S with the same apps etc but a better phone?

I thought the Apps for the Samsung et al are still pretty shite when compared to Apple. Certainly was the case 12 months ago

Yeah they are but when looking at it 12 months ago..the difference in quality was huge.

 

Im trying to decide between a iphone 4s or the nexus prime.

I'm waiting for the nexus prime to come out then check the reviews, in all honesty I'm bored with iPhone so fancy a change. That htc sensation xe is looking tempting.

Just upgraded to the Iphone 4S from the Blackberry Storm II which is the worst phone in the world so anything is an improvement. I'm happy with the 4S but the Galxy II has great reviews.

I'm due an upgrade as well. What sort of contracts are people on?

 

I want the phone free (not sure what yet, but probably Galaxy S2 or the Sensation) and to pay about £20 a month. Am I being unrealistic?
