  • I’m of no help as I still don’t have a mobile.

  • it is really hard to go android once you are use to apple. my son has a htc and loves it

  • I do like my iPhone :)

  • I have an iPhone 4s and love it. My hubby and kids say I should upgrade because it’s obsolete, but I love it so much I don’t want to. My hubby has a HTC and the kids have Samsungs, they all seem to work ok

  • So many to choose from…

  • I love the samsung galaxy phones. I’m on my third and have considered changing, but they are so good, I keep going back to them.

  • I’m team iPhone, love my 6 plus but I also spend A LOT OF TIME in waiting rooms, so the bigger screen was always going to come in handy! A few around me have the Samsung edge & they love it & wouldn’t go back to the iPhone.

    I think it comes down to choice & what your preference is. I also have other apple products so I love that they all work together. Good luck cause 24 months feels like 4 years if you hate the phone but like 6 months if you love it!

  • Nokia phones seem to be the most sturdy. Structurally they are stronger than Samsung.
    I have dropped my Nokia several times, even spilt water on it and it is still working perfectly.
    The water went in around the keys but I picked it up and turned it upside down immediately.
    A friend of mine drives a truck and has climbed under it several times, and his Nokia has fallen out of his shirt pocket onto the bitumen road on numerous occasions. The face has a tiny crack in it. By now it’s a wonder the whole thing hasn’t collapsed. It is still working perfectly.

  • I upgraded my phone a few months ago and went with the 5s instead of the 6 because the 6 just seems to big and it wouldn’t fit comfortably in my pocket. With the 5s I’ve got a new phone, same size that I love and all the great apps and photo sharing ability I had before. Plus, when I recently broke my phone the Apple store was able to fix it for me in a matter of hours where if it had been a different phone type my phone company said it would have been 6-8 weeks to get fixed.

  • One that you can keep for a long time!

  • As soon as one comes onto the market another one is here.

  • I went from an iPhone 4S to a Galaxy approx 12 months ago and I hate it. Both my husband and I cannot wait to get rid of them when our contract runs out in another 12 months. Can’t wait to get back to the iPhone platform eventually.

  • Nexus 6P just got launched…my hubby ordered one…

  • iPhone 6 s if you can afford it

  • I’ve got a Samsung Galaxy and I’m very happy with it.
