Lots of people will have different opinions on this. Go in to a shop and try them out, see which is best for YOU

I suggest iphone 4, excellent phone!!
#3
Iphone 4 for me, though htc is android so more flexibility for customisation etc. N8 has dated OS.

iphone 4 for me too - just got one free on upgrade with vodafone - never had an iphone/ipod type product before and it is great

We can't tell you which is better, you need to try them out to see what suits.

Personally i hate the Iphone and love my Desire with Android.

Try them out and see in person. Although since you are asking about 3 different OS, Iphone is probably right for you.

Generalising:

Iphone - Good choice for the non technically inclined - simpler
Android - For those who like to tinker around a bit more with stuff - more freedom
Nokia - Cheaper, better for those who are more familiar with older style OS.

love my desire hd....went from being a nokia fan to this and I'll not be going back!

def iphone, the htc would be first choice if apple didn't exist.

also all the people on android (htc desire),secretly want an iphone (i read somewhere).

thanks for all of above, i have looked at them all in the shop but you cant really see all the features in action, they just let you hold the phone and see the basic functions, so its good to hear from people who have actually got these phones

Desire!!!

iPhone 4, purely because of the massive catalogue of commercial apps that are available for it, the likes of which you won't find on Android.

How did you manage to get one for free? Are you paying a hefty monthly tariff?

They seem to be doing some good offers for retention customers on Vodafone. A girl in work managed to get an iPhone 4 16GB for £20 with the contract £30 a month for 18 months. She has been with them for 5 years though and been paying £40 a month for all that time :-/.

iphone 4,best value if you want to sell it.

iphone4 > desire > n8

Interesting, not a single person recommends the Nokia. Somewhat confirms my thinking about their Quality (we only do get Nokia phones at work :( )
#16
Nothing wrong with the quality of the Nokia but the OS is very dated and the apps available are no match for the thousands of android and iphone apps,

Wow, I never realised I secretly wanted an iPhone after telling so many people the UI (User Interface) on my Desire was far better than on the iPhone...

I Read(making up) that iPhone users really want Android phones but don't want to move away from the Fashion crowd (_;)
#19
thanks, seems i can narrow it down to the htc and iphone now then as they sound better than the nokia.

will have to think about this now as quite an even split
#20
Depends what you want from your phone.

I upgraded to the BB Bold 9700 from an android handset and love it!

Really? Most of us made the decision to get the Desire HD after comparing it to the iphone! If I had wanted an iphone...I would have got it. I chose not to go for it!!

OP....I'm with Vodafone and they let me go into their store and actually play with the live versions of the phones before I made my decision. They've been good to me like that for the past 3-4 years now. I went in thinking I wanted the Galaxy S then played with that, the iphone 4 and the Desire (not hd as it wasn't out) and just loved the feel of the Desire.
