CHR1S (6th December 2012)
Getting much better battery life than the GS2, now zero usage at night when I used to lose 15-20%! Wireless always on. GPS and BT off. Live wallpaper (some great ones) always on (no extra battery usage if done right).

I didn't want a huge phone so went for the Motorola iRazr XT890. It's much smaller than S3 and has a 2GHz Intel Atom processor.
Its pretty quick, no bloatware and has ICS 4.04 installed.
The Nexus7 updates from Google have been pretty spot on so far.

I'm interested in the Razr I, but i'm a bit concerned about battery life, I'm capable of flatening the battery on my Defy by lunchtime if I have to actually use it, and the atom is not the most frugal of processor architectures, how have you found it?
Nexus 4 would get my vote, but, I love the fact I can if I want carry a spare battery for my HTC Sensation, I am still in two mind if the 4 is right for me or not
For £279, a whole £221 cheaper than an iPhone 5 or N920 - im quite chuffed! If I dont like it I could probably even get 98% of my money back selling it as second hand in a month or two!
on a serious note I have had the N4 for a couple of weeks now (got it around 3-4 days after launch if I remember correctly) and love it. So smooth, excellent screen and excellent build quality. On the downside battery is only so-so but has been on all the Nexus phones I have owned (and I have had all of them). I get around a day and a half's use out of mine with 3-4 hours screen time so not really bad at all. Seems to be a few wakelock bugs (details of one here [Q] msm_hsic_host wakelock - xda-developers) particularly related to location services and google now as well which should be sorted soon.
Well.. Now I just feel behind-the-times.. Still using a HTC Desire. It might be a few years dated, but it's still working solidly (besides the time I didn't quite flash it properly and messed it up, my mistake!). Internal memory is a bit low, but that's what SD cards are for. I don't have the money to upgrade.. Maybe when my contract runs out..
i have the HTC 8X, Windows phone 8 as great better then 7 and i wont be going back most of the winphones now have NFC and very responcive if you ignor the odd bug yes im talking to you random reboot bug -_-.
but other wise its brillient
and comes in a range of colours mines blue XD
on o2 and its 36 a month on a 24 month contract

Well, my Google wallet order is still pending, that doesn't mean much I know! Its gone from delivery in days to weeks and now the estimated delivery date has been removed altogether!
Might buy a like new S3 off a colleague instead.
Oh now we have something different, pending has now become -
December 6, 2012 Pre-ordered
A friend is in a similar position @CHR1S He has been in contact with the customer support team all week and the latest update was they are awaiting another shipment from LG, but will refund the P&P for those who's estimate was 3-5 days when ordered.

Have just contacted them about getting a refund for the postage as had the 3-5 days delivery, phones for my girlfriend though otherwise I would be pretty annoyed right now if I had bought it for myself. Seems like a lot of people have been messed around over these orders.
