1. Decide the budget. If it involves a monthly plan make sure to include that in the budget.
2. Make a list of what is wanted from the device. Split it into must-have, and desirable.
3. Find the necessary items within the budget and compare which ones tick the must-haves and which ones tick the most desirables.
4. Once it's narrowed down to a shortlist, go to a shop and see the items in action. If a salesperson approaches, don't be deceived and don't be distracted as the majority of them will do anything to earn the maximum commission from you even if what they're pushing on you doesn't suit your needs.
app store for apple is the best
but if you're really interested in an android device
there are better options out there like the LG optimus G or the HTC one X+ or the Droid DNA but if you really want the latest technology the sony, htc and samsung will release their next flagships early next yer or the 2nd quarter
features such as a1080p screen faster processor better battery better camera
I have the s2, and I am pretty happy with it.
I have never had an iPhone, but I've always felt they were overrated..
I think you can get a way better phone than the iPhone for the price you would pay.
As mentioned above, HTC 1x is also a very good phone.
Do you need it right now, or can you wait until next year? There will be loads of great phones on the market.
If you need it right now, HTC or Samsung is what I would go with heart
To put it simply, you're much better off getting a Galaxy S3. iPhone 5 has nothing amazingly upgraded compared to previous iPhones. If you're really desperate to have an iPhone, then get a 4S, but I would recommend a device with an Android OS.
