    If this was a "Which phone is better?" thread then fair enough, but it's not. The 4s being a con is entirely your opinion and it's actually pretty unrelated to the topic. If people like iPhones, people like them. It has nothing to do with anybody else. You like your phone, they like theirs. Everyone is happy

    I'm using a samsung galaxy s3 from AT&T that is rooted and flashed with the latest daily build of Cyganogen Mod. Phone is awesome. Was using a blackberry bold 9900 prior to the switch. Actually was a blackberry user for the last 8 or so years. With RIM's email push notifications getting slower and slower, the phone was useless to me so I made a switch and I am overall very happy with my decision to switch to the s3.

    I've got an iPhone 4S myself which I prefer.

    The Samsung has better hardware stats, but it's a phone, samsung having slightly better stats is not going to affect anything, at least for me it doesn't and I am pretty much the normal phone user.

    People also love to hate on Apple, I actually hate apply myself, but I always get an iPhone, simply because imo it's the best looking phone lol I hate macs and I hate iPads.

    I am using SE Xperia x10i and I am greatly disappointed and won't purchase any of SE products again, I'll be buying Samsung as my next smart phone.

    Same here, 15 € phone. It can call, it can text. Nice.
    I recently got a contract update and now have cheap internet, so I will probably buy some 150-200€ smartphone, just not feeling comfortable with 400-600€ in my pocket, and everything I want to do with it, a 200€ phone can do as well.
    Yet for certain activities I will definitely take the old one.
    No point mentioning these bats, I thought. The poor bastard will see them soon enough.

    I havent tried it, but I think that there are apps that natively play such files.

    apple products in general are over priced, the little apple seems to bump the price up on anything its on, but then the new samsung is just as expensive if not more so.

    however i get my phones for free on my contract, i've never had any problems with the apple phones, so i'll continue to use them as they fulfil all my needs =)

    it doesn't really matter to me if its the best phone in the world, as long as it fulfils my requirements, which these days is texts, emails, internet, facebook app and a few silly games to pass the time on when i'm on the toilet =p

    most phones tick the box for all that, so if i'm happy with what i've got why change =p

    HTC Desire Z (Vision, G2). Covers my needs perfectly, so no reason to change atm, maybe HTC One X in the future tho.

    That phone is 2 years old, I have heard quite a few different sources claim that their newer stuff got way better.
    My girlfriend has a xperia ray (other category than yours, though) and is quite content.

    I have an iPhone 4S

    The 4S has a dual core 800 MHz CPU instead of a single core like its precursor, making it A LOT faster. The camera is a lot better (3264x2448 pixles up from 2584×1938), also the video camera on the 4S can record 1080p video while the iPhone 4 can only record 720p.

    In Windows 7 64-bit when I drop a movie (usually wmv, avi, maybe MP4) from the computer onto the phone it asks me if I want to convert the video and I always say 'No'. The conversion seems native to Windows as I haven't installed any software for it.

    I use a free app called 'MX Player' from the play store which plays every movie I have asked it to play. I have never had to install codecs etc separately.

    I use MixZing free version from the play store which does a good job with my music.


    Also, and so not to appear too biased, the Samsung Kies software which you can put on your PC to help manage your phone is also pretty bad if you want to achieve complicated things on it. The Nokia Ovi suite used to be pretty bad too as I remember. For backing-up contacts and keeping the Android software up to date it does a good job, but I found the software to manage videos, music etc was more hassle than just dragging the files (pictures, movies, music) around using windows explorer. I probably hook the phone up to Kies once every 6-months, otherwise I just use it like a USB stick.
    Happiness is like pissing yourself: everyone can see it but only you can feel its warmth.

    Sincerily? I switched back to a Nokia 6300 a few weeks ago. Why? Damn, this phone is impossible to break, and still work well. About 4-5 days battery lifetime, etc.
