    I'm on orange and you get 25% off (a month) if you can prove you work for government or a school.

    S2 here too

    It takes a while to get used to the width of the thing - but the missus has my old desire, and everytime I pick it up I can't believe how little screen space there is.

    DOOOO EEEETTT!

    Battery life and charging (but you can get a spare battery).

    The screensize is great, but can take some getting used to, you know its in your pocket.

    Samsung Galaxy S2.... Winner of phone of the year @T3

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/newsbeat/15254636

    iPhone....Jump on the bandwagon (in my opinion)

    I advised my sister to get an S2, when her contract was up....and she is VERY happy with it. (I have the Galaxy S)

    My brother, on the other hand, dumped his iPhone for an HTC Sensation, and after years of telling me how great the iPhone was, has completely changed his views. Fanboi no more!

    I still think it will be a personal preference, and you need to go into the shop and look at both to decide. Whichever you go for....


    Good luck!

    SAMSUNG

    *1GB Ram
    *16GB Drive
    *4.3" WVGA SUPER AMOLED Plus

    IPHONE
    *5MP Camera with Flash
    *1 GHz ARM Cortex-A8 processor, PowerVR SGX535GPU, Apple A4 chipset
    *512MB Ram
    *16GB Drive
    *Video recording, HD (720p) up to 30 frames per second with audio
    *3.5-inch (diagonal) widescreen Multi-Touch display
    I don't think comparing specs is the way to go when choosing a phone, because lets face it, most tablets have a higher spec than the phones, and I don't fancy holding an ipad or a xoom up to my ear, do you?

    They're both good phones - I prefer the iphone and have a 4s on order but that's my preference.

    As to what one you should get, I think how they feel and how they work in your hand and which one you can easily get your head around is going to be a more worthwhile comparison than which one has a camera with more megapixels or whatever. When I talked about the iphone being my preference earlier on, I mean that the choice of phone is quite a personal thing... it's something you'll lug around with you all the time and so whichever one you feel most comfortable with really is the most important thing I can think of.

    Also think about the apps you will use - though each app is usually fairly cheap in itself, the cost of them adds up quickly enough and whichever phone you decide to buy, it will cost a lot of money to change course later on and rebuy all the same sorts of apps over again!

    S2 all the way.

    Nice review of the S2 if you want to read everything you possibly can about your shiny new toy: AnandTech - Samsung Galaxy S 2 (International) Review - The Best, Redefined

    Battery life isn't too bad actually. I have GPS/Wifi on and from 100% in the morning, with normal use (not games playing or movie watching) I get home in the evening with about 75%.
    I think I've had 2 and a half days on battery as max so far without a charge. Obviously using it for games and gps and downloading over wifi will take up more, but as a general phone it's still OK

    I have a USB cable at work so I keep it plugged in most of the time when I'm at my desk. I also have a car charger (£3 or something from Play) incase I need to charge on the go - then keep my actual charger at home.

    I was taking pics while on the p1ss on Saturday night and it died about 3:30am which was slightly annoying!!

    Just to be different I'd say get a 4S if you can afford one...

    For any reason or just because you want to be different?

    Made a purchase of an S2 contract last night! Wait till you hear this deal!

    £28 a month,
    700 mins, 3000 texts, 1GB Data
    Free Samsung S2
    £100 Instant Cashback.

    Works out that the phone tarrif is costing £7.16 a month. If you aren't after a new phone but your contract is up, sell the phone and take the cashback for a cheap contract perhaps?
