    Which Phone

    My iPhone 4 is failing me, its getting slow clunky and unreliable.

    I don't want another iPhone of any number either.

    What's hot at the moment and what would you guys recommend?

    It has to be unlockable to 02/Giffgaff, maybe have a memory card slot and do nice things

    Cost isnt really a problem, but I don't want to spend where I don't need to! Oh and no HUGE phones please!

    Thanks

    Nokia Lumia 820 if you don't want a huge phone. I got the 920 three weeks ago and I love it to pieces. Live tiles are good the lock screen is awesome and I don't miss a single feature of the iPhone and I now have something completely new to play with. Not so good on the 820 but the pureview camera is amazing and takes brilliant photos for a camera, much better than the S3 or iPhone 5.

    The Nexus 4 is also a cheap android one but that's on a very long backorder now.

    I have just got hold of the Smasung Galaxy s3 mini for my mother, seems to be a very nice phone, its a little bigger than my iPhone 4s. Screen is very nice and runs very well from what i have played with it. Have seen the normal s3 being used by others and they always seem very good.

    That's a shame. The size of the handset/screen slightly too large IMO but for the money it's an awesome phone. I can see why so many people would want to get their hands on one. If my iPhone needed replacing it would be top of my list.

    Ars are doing a good comparison series at the moment:

    The State of Smartphones in 2012: Part I of our Ultimate Guide | Ars Technica

    By all accounts the Galaxy III appears to be the closest all round competitor the the fruit phone. Latest versions of Android (4.x) seem quite nice to use.

    If he doesn't want a huge phone, surely that rules out the SIII? As good as it is

    I think "Galaxy Note" when people mention huge phones.

    I wouldn't. They seem to always be sold out.

    There is an S3 mini now and I would get the Nexus 4 before selling my S3 (as its got a broken screen).

    the nexus doesn't support external memory cards (I know, it's crap!)

    I'm awaiting the Motorola Razr/droid HD for its immense battery life and lack of bloatware.
