    I just got an S4 Mini from Orange on upgrade. 23.50 a month, free phone, free sky sports on phone, lots of mins, data, texts ect. I still miss my iPhone 4 though! The whole feel of Android just seems to be less cohesive and much more fiddly than iOS.

    Only 20months till i can go back! :S

    Give it 20 months and you will most likely be a full Android convert!

    Yep, the first couple of weeks with Android hurt (I tried out a Nexus 7) but now iOS feels clunky to me. Aside from the small-screened phones.

    I have the S2 Mini at the moment but for some reason I cannot get Sky Sports even though I subscribe, does Android support Sky Go now?

    Sky go has been supported on certain phones for months.

    I would go for another iPhone I went from a samsung galaxy S2 to an iPhone 5 and as customisable as android is, it's not as polished as iOS I just prefer using it. Deffo something wrong if it's slow and buggy on the 4S as people I know with the 4S love iOS 7 on it and don't say it's slow.

    The slow part may be down to safari allowing lots of tabs to be opened and having other apps running. As soon as all of this is closed down then the rest runs smoother

    I wouldn't know unfortunately. I get sky sports through my browser thank to an orange deal I'm on. I don't have a sky account or anything like that.

    And as for going back in 20 months. I don't know if I'll be a full convert or not. I've spent the past few weeks slowly adding my iPhone sounds and finding an ios theme. I still miss my iPhone though if anybody wantwants to give one away...?

    My missus has the HTC One V and she's pretty happy with it. Costs her about 20 a month.

    The Nexus 5 meets all of those criteria. It should be released on Tuesday, so not long to wait.
