    i like my Samsung Galaxy S2. battery life is ok for a smart phone and you can change them unlike the iphone.

    Just got an One X and it's a wonderful piece of kit. It has had nothing but glowing reviews. True the battery life isn't great and the screen is large. Infact I held my old wildfire today and it felt like a pebble!

    I changed from a HTC Desire myself to an iPhone 4S, dont regret it, iPhone is a very nice phone, better in some ways than the desire in that it doesnt stuggle or get limited by memory on how many apps you can run (at least ive not noticed any issues so far), battery life is decent enough, can be stretched a bit as well same as the desire if your active enough in turning things off when you dont need them - i.e. turn wireless off when your not around any points and 3G when your at home. 3G for me seems to be the big battery killer since I upgraded to 5.1 (leaving it on means the battery lasts about 24 hours before needing a charge, turning it on and off as needed means you can go a lot longer)

    Apps - like android it isnt bad, theres a wealth of good free and paid for apps, there are alternatives to most apps you take for granted on the android, (Google Navigate was pretty much the only one I had to do a search for an alternative so far)

    Comparatively for me, the iPhone is similar to android and both have areas where they can improve and areas which you prefer on the relevant os for doing the same tasks.

    Siri is quite fun on the iphone as well, makes for a fun experience also

    My next phone will be an iPhone of some description but that's because I'm somewhat heavily invested in the Apple ecosystem, I have a lot of apps which I don't want to have to buy again for Android, Windows Phone or whatever. A large advantage of Apple is that there is a lot more in the way of third party add-ons too like docks, car stereos etc.

    HOWEVER, I would suggest going to somewhere like Carphone Warehouse or an O2 shop or something and actually having a play. Whatever phone you get is going to be considerably different to what you've got now so try them all and see what you like the best.

    The HTC One X is without a doubt the better phone out of the three. The 4.7" display is perfect; I find that 3.5" displays (such as the one on the iPhone) are just too small. Specification wise the HTC One X is far superior with a quad core processor and 1 GB of RAM.

    Can't compare the two in my opinion, unless for some reason you have a bias towards Apple and iOS.

    Might also be worth waiting a little bit to see what Samsungs new phone is like (Samsung Galaxy S3?).

    I strongly dislike all these new fancy phones and really hate being exposed to it. All I need is a neat phone, preferably with slots for two sim-cards, as I am crossing borders frequently. Anyone got any suggestions? Feel free! Price-wise it should not exceed about 80€! Cheers!

    HTC all the way for me. I had to send my Sensation back for repair (2 DPs and dust under screen) no questions asked, back within 3 days. Used an old Wildfire to get by.

    HTC One X. Just upgraded from a desire myself to the One X. No more limitations on how many apps you can install, took a couple of days to get used to the bigger screen but now when I look and hold the old desire it feels too small now. Battery life is fine for me, the only minor annoyance for me currently is Bluetooth streaming audio to my car headset stutters, It's believed to be the stepping from the 4 normal cores to the low power 5th core, no doubt will get sorted soon.

    If you are going to go for the One X get one from a store instead from online as there are a few reports of yellowish patches on the screen or screen flexes. Mine is fault free and haven't looked back.

    My brother recently changed to the HTC One X from the Desire and he loves it except that he cant get Sky Go now whereas he could on the Desire. But Sky will probably bring out an update anyway

    I had hands on a HTC One X the weekend before last and (to me) it feels too big.

    Got an HTC Desire at the moment (Can early upgrade on the 10th June)

    I'm guessing that by Galaxy S, you mean the much-anticipated SIII?

    I have the S and it's a really nice phone....My sister has the SII and that's a beauty, but the SIII is supposed to be released VERY soon, and could well be phone of the year.

    Personally, I'm waiting for that to come out....and then wait a while until I can upgrade!!!
