I want to go back to basics. My next phone will be from either Sony or Nokia.
I finally got my first smartphone (a hand-me-down from my brother) as I have a work phone (blackberry) so only need it for the odd personal overseas call. Nokia 97mini.
Awful phone. My son chewed it and it died. Which was a blessing.
Currently running a
Delighted with it!
I have some home cinema and Sonos stuff.
I'm with Big Aura. Nice simple Nokia 700 for me as an upgrade from a 2330! Means I don't get the cold sweats when I'm more than 50mtrs from a power point.

Nokia's 41 mega pixel 808 PureView perhaps? It's symbian, which is a shame, but the camera is said to be quite something.
More than a little bit sceptical of this, but happy to be proven wrong. Relying on that level of pixel binning seems odd to me. I get the lossless digital zoom concept, but I have always thought pixel size was king. Shall wait and see for real world sample photos.

sometimes find myself tinkering with it too much, moving widgets here and there, resizing them, etc.
Precisely my view too. I was forever tinkering with my Desire and never seemed to get it just right. A happy compromise would be iOS but with active tiles for things like weather. As I've said before though, it came down to the keyboard and music quality for me. I simply liked the Apple keyboard better and thought the Dersire sounded awful. I even downloaded an iPhone keyboard emulator at one point.
I'm not convinced yet by Windows. Office is great, but it may be a while before it gets fully supported with other apps; remember how long it took Sonos to develop an Android variant?
I think Apple are at an interesting crossroads. Their current development is more evolutionary rather than revolutionary. Will iPhone users accept just another tweak to spec?

I sold my iPhone as i've changed networks and i couldn't get it unlocked. I'm using a GS2 at the moment and also added the iPhone keypad, the Samsung one is awful IMO, fantastic phone though, how could any phone be faster? The thing rockets along. I've found call quality to be poor though, i can hear others fine but they say i sound muffled, so i'll be moving it on tmw.
I'd found a brand new sealed Nokia Lumia 800 for a great price, e250 (euros) but pulled out of the deal to buy that when a friend told me they can't yet be used as a wifi hotspot
So i'm getting another Galaxy Nexus tmw, my second, i sold the first because the loudspeaker was so poor i couldn't hear youtube vids, call quality was good enough though, and the phone is fantastic, i'll just bring headphones to bed for my late night youtube sessions
I think there may be more than a tweak with the iPhone 5, it'll have at least a 4in screen IMO, and they'll need to offer more customisation options, the couple of screens full of app icons over a fixed background is stale now.

Ok i'm not that far gone in my 24 month contract for my iPhone 4S but already i know i want a bigger screen, maybe a 4" screen would do it but i don't want to go as large as the galaxy note
So i'm thinking maybe selling on my iPhone in july / Aug and looking out for a new phone that will be easer to watch when streaming TV and Video on the move but i have no idea what

I’m a complete hypocrite! Despite what I said in this (and other) threads, I have just ordered a HTC One X.
I was going to go for either an Xperia s, however I had a play with one and was not that impressed.
The square edges uncomfortable in the palm of my hand
Even out of the box using Gingerbread with nothing running, the menus were a little jerkier than my two year old HTC Desire. If the phone is struggling now, what would it be like after a year’s use.
From what I can see the One X seems to be superb, but time will tell. I can return it in 14 days if it’s no good.
Was considering a One X myself but 3 things are putting me off, only 32GB of storage, no option to add an SD card, or access to the battery being a unibody design.

Isn't there some cloud based storage available?
Seen a review of the One X earlier, on Trusted Reviews, looks a great phone.
Yes there's a plethora of cloud based solutions for Android, but it starts to get expensive if you have large amounts of data.
Plus obviously it requires a data/wifi connection, and i don't really like the idea of having to pay to access my own media (storage or data charges)
Like an iPhone you mean?
No signature worth mentioning...
Yes it smacks of iTwattery, doesn't it.
