    Will never own an Apple product. Though thinking about that, it almost makes me a sheep in the "not wanting Apple products" group. Though my reasons are to do with them being a spiteful company that trys to win success though sueing other companies. I mean, they win $1bn out of Samsung, but that wasn't enough so they want a further $700m. Utter corporate greed. The following words are censored to protect the innocent.

    Anyway, I have a Samsung Galaxy Note. The is especially un-sheepish, as even normal phone users find it too big. Which to me was its main selling point. Applephone5 is still too small.

    I have no current need, or particularly even a desire, for a smartphone much less an over-hyped and (IMHO) over-priced one.

    So that'll be a "no", then.

    I have an Iphone 4 and to be honest I like it.The newer iphone 5 doesn't give me anything
    to make me want to go that step forward and purchase it.Even IOS6 as an upgrade takes things away from my i4. I'm not happy about loosing certain things like other people,even tho there are work arounds. Weve been told that the new apple maps wont work on the i4 but have since found out that they do on a jail broken one so what's going on here.Am I being told little porkies through propaganda so that I am being forced to upgrade. Not sure. Not happy at all really.Looking at the note 2 soon.That looks fantastic.!!!

    Re: Features - QOTW: Will you be buying the iPhone 5?

    I've just recently sold my trusty HTC Titan to prepare for my new phone purchase.

    To be even handed and open minded I am borrowing an iPhone 4 and have bought a cheap Jelly Bean powered android tablet to see how the alternative OSs stack up in terms of usability and features.

    If I'm honest I'm probably half decided on a Lumia 920 already but until they're available there's no rush... If I do go down this route though there's a devil of a decision to be made chosing the colour! Black with a cyan charge pad to match a Surface RT with blue touch keyboard/cover?

    Its a possible. I have an iPhone 4S at the moment and have a few Apple products, so from an ecosystem point of view it makes sense, everything works together (most of the time). However the new Nokia Lumia 920 really caught my eye, and I figured I have nothing to loose in waiting to see if it does live up to the claims Nokia makes. Plus it will give time for the smoke to settle on the latest Apple release.

    Yeah I'll be getting one, but probably not till February with my upgrade.

    If t-mobile were going to allow free successive updates to Android devices I may be tempted by a S3 BUT the last time I had android they didnt and locked me out of any further updates (HTC Hero) soooo because of my crap experience with t-mobile I'm unsure if I would be going that route again.
    Thanks,
    Sacred

    I've got a Samsung Galaxy S3 which in my opinion is way better spec wise than the iPhone 5. It's good they've finally increased the screen size, but having a 4.8" full 720p screen is just awesome... they should up their game!
