    I think I'm more than likely going to get a new android phone, with a good chance of that being the SGS3.
    I've still got a couple of months left on my current contract so I'll be keeping an eye out for whichever has the best deal between now and then really.

    Exactly. I want my spend to go to developers and engineers, not patent lawyers.

    I'll never, ever, buy another Apple product. Firstly because after owning two iPods I utterly hate the way they do things and could only keep using the last one because of Rockbox (the first one died). Secondly, their marketing, obvious planned obsolescence, and litigiousness make their products even less attractive to me.

    I'm going to go for a WP8 device, so no iPhone for me! By the way, there are rumours going round that Samsung are launching the Galaxy S4 in February next year.. food for thought.

    S4 *should* be on show in Feb next year with a release of March. Interesting to see that a large majority of reviews are saying that the iPhone 5 is probably at best the 3rd best handset at moment with some saying they prefer the 4S! That's a first for Apple...

    I don't think I'll never buy an iPhone. I just can't understand why should it be better than an android smartphone. The only reason for iPhone to be so "in" is that apple.

    Contract has another year to run, so it'll either be an S4 or "Nexus Next" (rumours of one have been circulating for a while now).

    Received mine today but Vodafone sent the wrong SIM card so can't use it. Like the feel of it though.

    Buy an iPhone5? Bwah ha ha ha ha ha... :wipes a tear from eye: Not a chance, over hyped, over priced and belonging to a company that makes 1984 look really quite reasonable.

    Anyway my trusty old (nine year old) work horse of a Motorola V620 is still plodding along (and still lasts a week on its original battery) and I've just bought a spotless second hand Motorola Atrix for business purposes so I'm not going to be upgrading for a good while yet.

    No. Its a substandard design and the Galaxy S3 is both cheaper and better. Plus the fact I'd be locked into apples bullsh*terry, which I couldn't stand. Ill stick to android, its far better.
