    Which phone? iphone 4, desire HD or galaxy s?

    Right so i'm getting rid of my 3g iphone and was going to just get an iphone 4 but i've since been tempted to go for either a HTC desire hd or a galaxy s, anyone got a galaxy s and had an iphone, are the HTC desire actually that good?

    opinions on any of these phones from people who have got them appreciated.

    sell these phones to me!

    iphone 4

    It depends on what you want the phone for and how much your prepared to spend.

    You must have read what the iphone 4 is like by now and having owned a 3g, the logical step is to stick to what you know. Android is a good choice and offers more flexibility with what you can do in comparison to the iphone although it doesn't have as many apps at the moment.

    I'd hang on and see what the Desire HD is like as that is sure to be as good as the Galaxy S at the very least.

    must admit after having an iphone i'm worried that any change and i might regret it, might be best just sticking to what i know as i really like the iphone 3g

    don't buy the other **** ones, having a 3gs, the new screen on the iphone 4 is amazing, i'm still blown away with it

    ip4 all day long app store androids is diabolical no decent games, galaxy s samsung enough said desire hd will have shocking battery life nice phone though ,souljacker theres no installous on any other dont buy any other you will just compare it all the time, desire you cant see it in sunshine and pot battery life

    a phone is a phone, question should be which is the better boys ( or Girls) toy

    I'd say the Desire is the weakest of the three you've picked, with the Samsung being the best. Though as mentioned, the Desire HD is imminent, but needs to up the bar a fair bit to overtake the Galaxy S.

    BTW - do you really care that the iphone has 100,000 apps compared to 70,000 for Android? Most apps are pants anyway and with the open source that Android has, it will (IMHO) overtake the number of apps next year for sure.

    Besides..... you are free of iTunes. That's gotta be worth its weight in Gold!

    Get the iPhone 4, apart from the signal issues which will be fixed soon

    have you got an iphone4 now and have you jailbroken it?

    I only ask because i ended up getting rid of the jailbreak on my 3g, it was just slowing the whole thing down and it kept freezing

    And as for the app issue, i'm not really that bothered about most of them to be honest, there are a few useful ones but the best thing i liked when my iphone was jailbroken was sbs settings...i really miss that now

    IP4 for me. But I wouldn't get the Desire since the Desire HD, and Desire Z are coming out soon. Personally I'm quite attracted to the Desire Z as the keyboard is something I find very useful. But its a matter of opinions really.

    yes i have had the ip4 since launch, it was jb but then i updated it to 4.1 for the hdr photos, the jb doesnt slow it down its usually winterboard well it was for me on my 3gs that i had trouble with, you dont know how good the apps untill they are gone granted not all but most are way above androids that has only just got angry birds beta the retina screen is awesome and it takes glorious photos and the hd vids are bang on as well

    im having the same dilemma, but i've never owned an expensive smartphone before, always been on a cheap(ish) phone with PAYG. Just recently signed up to the Tesco 1 month contract deal and looking to make more use of the internet and also thinking about these 3 phones.

    Probably will wait a month or 2, see some more reviews of the new HTC phones first.

    Having already got a 3G I know for a fact iPhones are not pants

    Have a check of the Xperia x10 too mate. Can't fault mine.

    iPhone 4 all the way. I like the safety barrier that apple gives if you know what I mean. The phone experience will always be top class. Plus the screen and hdr photos are superb.

    Haha... I was going to flog that the other day (Never understood why I didnt when I bought that awful iPhone!!!).... only to see I'd lost it! God knows where! I did find the previous model to it though!

    Kids both have Galaxy portals - which are not very good - but adequate for them. Had a desire for 3 weeks, but didnt think much of it. The Galaxy S though, is way ahead of it. 2 Peeps here (who had played with the iP4) have both now bought the Samsung Galaxy S.
