I hate Apple... I love Android.... and I have a IIIS and it's the bomb. No it didn't blow up like that, you know what I mean.

It's personal choice Clive. I like both but I use an iPhone and never had a problem. If it does what you need then great.
I have a work blackberry which is poor as a phone and poor as a device. Awkward to use. Any iPhone or android phone will work fine.

Been using an HTC 'something' S for the last two years, my first experience with Android. Have to say I am not overly impressed .. very clunky. As I am due an upgrade next month, and don't want to stretch to an iphone on contract, I was wondering if anybody has much experience with Windows OS on mobiles?

I've used Windows on a Tablet, and it has it's problems. There aren't many Apps, and some of the main ones are limited - Mail, Calendar etc. It wouldn't be so bad, but there are no alternatives.

What version of Android are you using? There is a big change when you get to 4.2, so I wouldn't dismiss a new Android handset. Go into a shop and try out the Samsung S4 or the HTC One, just to see if it feels different to your current Android installation.

Thanks. Not sure which version of Android I have. Do you know how I can find out? (Sorry, not really a phone person ... just want to avoid something which freezes up on a regular basis).

Under the Settings App, go right to the bottom and there is an option called "About". It might say there, or you may have to click on Software Information first. Android Version is the one you want. It will be a number like 2.3.4 or 4.1.2

Lot of those cheap chargers are well dodgy. Peoples houses have gone up in flames, others maimed etc. Saw it on one of those Watchdog type programmes. Would definitely pay for a genuine one if I were you, ( though before watching that programme woild have happily gone for a cheap ebay job).

Aha. Thanks. 2.3.5 is what it says. So you are saying that the newer Android versions are smoother than what I have?
Yep, much smoother. They implemented something called project butter in 4.1, and it is "Buttery Smooth"!!!!!

It's worth popping into a Carphone Warehouse or Tesco Mobil and having a look, before you make your mind up. You're already half way to setting a new phone up, just be logging into your Google account, so it makes it a bit easier.

Good luck, and let us know hos you get on.
