Currently I'm using a Nokia brick which is durable but it's battery is slowly dying so I figured I might as well get a new phone. I know nothing about phones.

What should I get?

At the moment I am interested in a Nexus 5 when it comes out but willing to consider other Android alternatives. What is the Android vs iOS debate all about?

Samsung Galaxy S4 with the extended 7600mAh battery is the only way to go. Otherwise you just end up with a shit that needs to be recharged twice a day.

Get something without iOS and android, and that has a long lasting battery.
Why don't you just buy a new battery for your phone anyway?

Just get a galaxy 3. You can probably get one with a two year contract for fifty bucks if you look hard enough.

Because I am feeling increasingly isolated in society as everyone else can google facts at will, check their emails on the fly, WhatsApp each other etc. whilst I must go home and boot up a computer to do all of that.

I hate freedom of choice. We should all be given phones by the government so that there is no individuality and therefor no one can be above anyone else.

How much you are looking to spend on a new phone?


Up to £300 if I buy it unlocked not on a contract and probbly looking to spend up to £20 a month + up front cost if it's a contract phone.

Sony offers quite a lot of options on that price tag. So does HTC, but I believe most of them use Windows Phone and since you only mentioned Android or iOS in the OP, I assume Windows is really not an option. Samsung has a large collection as well, but I'm not really a fan of Samsung, to be honest.

If you're not a die hard fan of Apple, I don't see why you should consider an iPhone. Also, for 300£ you're not getting any of the latest iPhones, and there's no advantage in purchasing an obsolete phone.

Get the Nexus 5. It's gonna be cheap as shit and those specs look quite nice.

Phone is nice, though WP8 is so buggy. I can't even put music on my 820, the traxk multiply like amoeba.

I wouldn't know, since I'm part of the Windows Phone 7.8 master race with my Lumia 900.

iPhone 5c

Why? If you're going to get an iPhone, the 5C is the worst option. It's damn near the price of the 5S which gets you a much nicer phone. Hell, if you don't want to spend the extra cash, just buy an iPhone 5. It's a better phone.

As for Android

Nexus 5 will be the best bet in your price range, but the Xperia Z1 is good, especially if you like gorgeous looking phones. It's a lot more expensive though.

But the iPhone 5 isn't gold like the 5C dammit.

It's $99 bucks and TS didn't sound like he needed the best thing in the world.

And iPhone 5C is iPhone 5 with a plastic back.

My mom got hers for under $200 with a really good contract. 5S on the same contract was like $700 or something
