    You will find the best prices on the internet. I've used Mobile Phones - Best Mobile Phone Deals on Orange, O2, T-Mobile, 3, Vodafone and Mobile Phones | Mobile Phone Deals on the Best New Phones | Dialaphone and would recommend you check them out.

    Take a look at Mobile Deals & Cheapest Mobile Contracts - Hot UK Deals

    Just a word of warning re the One X. As awesome a phone it is, the quality is another matter! Am now waiting for my third replacement in as many weeks! First had screen corruption issues, Second overheated to the point you could heat a small 2 bed house with it and the one I'm waiting to be collected started developing the dreaded yellow spots on the LCD.

    Colleague had a HTC One X (Vodafone supplied/branded), had a flickering screen issue. The replacement had a similar issue (noticeable more whilst charging). Returned it in the end.

    I've got an unbranded white model, checked it all out in the shop before accepting. Had 1.26 firmware on initially, so knew it didn't have screen issue (that 1.27+ firmware has since tried to rectify).

    Does seem to be a power supply issue, as many have stated that the phone is using more power than a USB power supply can supply.

    Very happy with it. Don't even think it's too big,considering my other phone is a ZTE Blade that I still love! Started with Eclair now has Ice Cream Sandwich.

    GAAAAAH now you tell me, I ordered one from Amazon last Thursday! I knew I should never have opened this thread this morning.

    Well, here's hoping mine isn't borked.

    I voted the iPhone 4 option, but if you can hold out until approximately October, the iPhone 5 will probably be released around that time, based on Apple's 12 monthly release schedule.

    I am really enjoying my HTC one X - Great camera , great Phone and really nice design.

    only issue is battery life and the fact you cannot change the battery yourself.

    slightly off topic...

    I took the plunge last week, iv now got the galaxy note - it’s quite large but I am now incapable of using my tiny iPhone 4. I don’t feel like I’m missing anything for not been with apple, in fact it feels great!

    I love my new phone and my contract is 20 cheaper. Win Win Situation seen as though O2 are offering 234 for a used iPhone - guaranteed

    Well received the 4th handset today and after 1 hour of use has developed a loose screen and creaking case! Think the One stands for the age of the people putting these thing together!

    Looks like your mobile provider/shop is sending replacements out from the same batch etc.

    Is it branded?

    Can you not return for refund and get an unlocked version from the likes of carphonewarehouse or phones4u?

    Or even get different colour?

    NB
    Just noticed that 1.29.x firmware is now available to download for (unlocked) UK models.

    Well, I received my One X from Amazon on Monday and can happily report that so far I've had none of the above mentioned/linked problems. Battery life doesn't seem too bad by my standards, even before I got the 1.29 firmware upgrade last night. It lasts considerably longer than Mrs AT's (3 month old) Samsung Galaxy S2, which seems to eat battery for no good reason.

    Of course, I have now jinxed myself and by the weekend I expect my phone will have literally melted itself down.
