    Basically I'm sick of my iPhone and all apple technology! Had iPhones over 3 years now and I can't cope anymore with how inconsistent they can be and the quirks that they have. This is the 4th time my iPhone 4S has broken now and I've decided enough is enough!


    I want a phone that basically does everything an iPhone can do but better :)

    Any suggestions? Pros and cons of current phones out there?? X

    I used to have an iPhone, thought it was the best thing ever, now I own a Samsung Galaxy Note! In comparison the iPhone was rubbish. Get a Samsung :) visit a phone shop, they let you try the phones and can give opinions x

    Edit - also, I broke my iPhone screen 3 times in about a year, had this phone over a year and the screen is much better xx not broke it once!

    I have an iPhone 4S & while I do like it, I detest how elitist it is. It does sweet F.A. unless there is another Apple user. I'll be watching this thread very closely.

    To be honest the phones to have are either the HTC One or the Galaxy S4. People who have them love them and the reviews are consistently good. Plus they're are loads of deals on for them at the moment. On reviews the HTC One seems to pip the S4 but I hear the differences are marginal. I'd go to some phone shops and have a play with the real thing.

    I have the original galaxy s as it's still working perfectly after years and years and I can't justify replacing it. I think it's fabulous. Hubby has s3 and it's even better

    Between me & my husband we've had the iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S & iPhone 5 and never had a problem with any of them (all upgrades). I've had a Sony Xperia previous to the iPhone and couldn't stand android. Then everyone raves about it so we bought the nexus 7 tablet and I still can't stand android. I've heard good things about the HTC one that's just come out

    I've heard fab things about Samsung and HTC. However im sure Samsung have been in the news recently for 'fixing' test results etc. Hubby had a HTC one and he loves it!

    Agreed. Fed up with my iPhone and so jealous of my husbands 'better' S4. I want one too.

    It was on graphics tests vs real life gaming results frames per spec etc. they may or may not have done it, I honestly don't know. However I really go off user reviews and what it's like to actually handle the phone day to day. Consensus is still that HTC One and S4 are great phones.
