Looking To Buy A New Phone

Post by 7amood11 on Mon Aug 12, 2013 10:52 pm

I sold my iPhone 4 and I am looking to buy a new phone (not iPhone). I don't know much about phones, so what are the best phones currently on the market and why? Thanks.

whats your budget? does the location you live in sell phones on contract or off?

the best android phones atm are Galaxy S4, HTC one and Moto X (about to come out)

all the phones nowdays are 4.5-5+ inch...your i4 is 3.5 so there will be a big diff

most 4 inch phones are mid range or the iphone 5

if money is an issue as those phones cost $500+ then get the Nexus 4 or wait until Moto X Google play edition price is released, Nexus 4 is $300 off contract on Google play store

your only choice is between Android and Windows Os if you don't want Iphone. and in my opinion Android is alot better then Windows

Money is not an issue. Which phone is better between the s4 and htc one in your opinion?

Both are good, one is Plastic and the other is Metal...

In my Opinoin HTC One is better due to the looks

There are two typesof S4 and One, one with their Sammy and HTC's android skins and the other sold on google Play Store without any of the skinning and apps

it also depends on you, if you want to learn to root and install your own roms (custom android version) then i would go with Play store ones, otherwise stick to the normal one

That was a very insightful video. Definitely leaning more toward the HTC One now.

What do you think of it so far?

A close friend recently ditched the iphone 4s for the GS3 and he loves his new phone.

I've only had it for a few hours now, but so far it's giving a really good first impression.

once you get used to it the next step would be to learn rooting and custom roms (if your interested).... they grately improve the speeds and gives you more options

if your interested go to this site http://www.xda-developers.com/

I want to get the best phone out there but the S4 and the HTC one are way to big for me. Feels awkward. Are the mini version of the phones watered down? Or do they keep most of the features?

mini version's have less impressive hardware specs, but software contains same features.

if your looking for something a bit smaller in hand then the GS4 and HTC One i would say go for the new Moto X

it has the same 4.7 inch screen but the actual physical size is a bit smaller, and it runs good specs and vanilla android (un-skinned android) which is a bonus when it comes to receiving latest android updates fast

Apple will release the same bland crap, just with iOS 7 and there re-styled app icons lol I wouldn't expect to be wow'd by Apple it will likely be a iPhone 5s with no "revolutionary" features or features that are already available on Android devices, but they will charge you a premium still for catch up software improvements

Should I wait for the Nexus 5? Heard it's going to be out this year and priced around the same as the 4. The 4 is at the top of my list at the moment, but if I buy it and the 5 comes out and is better/not much more expensive I'll feel like an idiot.

Yeah you would wait it should come out in Nov, but be ready when it does, as it will sell out in mins
