    New Smartphone

    Hi All,

    Can you reccomend a good smartphone? My contract upgrade is due and I am unsure what to get. I ususally go for windows based but had mixed reviews about the HTC HD7.

    What do people think?

    The HD7 is Windows mobile 7, not Android.
    Probably the best two phones out at the moment are the Samsung Galaxy S2, or the HTC Sensation. Both Android, both brand new this month.

    HTC Desire HD is a fantastic phone. I would go and have a play in carphone warehouse.

    I have an HD7 - not impressed. Clunky interface, random reboots and lockups (only fixed by pulling battery). Better since last update, but still happen. Notification alert sounds are glitchy. This is the one supplied by work (but picked by me - bad move, and will be replaced ASAP)

    Also have a personal Samsung Galaxy S2. Best phone i've ever had, and I've had iPhones for 3 years prior to the SG2.

    Weird, my brother in law and his GF both have HD7 without issue. I do like driod but I find a lot of the UI uninspiring the the apps a bit boring. The whole WP7 app's design is very nice imo.

    Anything by HTC loaded with Android. Their sense interface and Google Android go very well together. Apart from the sometimes dodgy batches of phones they build (of which I got one originally), they're pretty unbeatable. The only thing with Android, try and get a phone with 2.3 on it. It has much better battery life than 2.2 and supports a proxy server.
