Phone choices

I've cut my choices down to 5 phones, which are:

HTC Desire 


HTC Wildfire

 
Xperia X10 

Samsung Galaxy S 

 iPhone 4G

I've heard nothing but good things about HTC's, and I would also like something with Android, almost purely for spotify support.

I hear Android has plenty of other bonuses, and I also don't particularly fancy getting my balls DRM'd to feck  by the iPhone, even though it is quite aluring.

I quite like the look of the Desire and I hear it mentioned alot, so out of the 2 HTC's that would probably be my choice.

However when I came across the Xperia X10, the first thing I noticed was its beautiful looking UI and interface, you have to admit - it does look pretty good.

The Samsung Galaxy S looks nice, and probably functions well - but I've just never particularly liked their phones. This is another phone I hear good things about, and hence why it is on this list. 

Can I get any advice on these phones? What are your opinions and personal experiences?

  1. HTC Desire Z aka T-Mobile G2, I love having a keyboard in my phone. Oh, and I would never recommend an iPhone.

  3. HTC desire does look nice yet the over sized screen leeches battery life super quick. Also if you do go for HTC ensure you stay away from any with the windows OS.
    I take it you'll be running a phone on contract?

  7. Furthermore, I highly recommend you look into "rooting" HTCs. Its a great way to make your HTC better, faster. It allows for the over clocking of the phones CPU etc. check the link:

  14. I can afford any of them really, don't know the price of each indivudually, will obviously matter and come into play when it comes to chosing one.

  15. I wish I had money for any of these phones, but I would go for the Iphone 4G because of the apps. I listen to Last.fm radio a lot and it would be awesome to have it everywhere I go.

  20. i'd go with the iphone... i have one myself. don't get it unless you plan on jailbreaking it though.
    jailbreaking it opens up so many more possibilities and you really get what you paid for.

  21. Just go for the Samsung, they're really durable.

    ive got an htc aria, the keyboard wont type in landscape mode but thats not a problem thanks to user apps. i have not had a problem getting answers to questions ive had about it. i can google it on my phone or call them if i need too

  24. I Own the Xperia. It is a SEXY phone. The Timescape/mediascape thing is only ok.. it can be kind of slow and you have no option to use the default android media player.

    The Xperia is also running an old android OS 1.6 and should be updated to 2.1 between november and the end of december.

    The Battery life is.. meh it should be 30% better when the 2.1 update is out.

    Alot people are worried that Sony will not support the the x10 after the 2.1 update which means we won't get the newest Android OS's

    The phone is capable of multitouch according to it's specs, However SE isn't going to impliment it

    The phone is great, the way Sony Erricson is supporting it is not.

    I'd say go for the Galaxy S.

  25. I have a Desire and I can't imagine getting a different phone.
    The Wildfire is nice but not as powerful as the Desire. And if you look at the version requirements of the various Android OS versions, you can see it's wise to go for a more powerful one.
