The phone I decided to get was the Nexus 4 but due to the high demand for the phone the contract prices are way to expensive. So because of this the Nexus 4 wasn't an option even though its the phone I would pick over the other ones in a heartbeat.
The HTC One X+ was better priced and has a very fast 1.7Ghz Quad-core CPU. But the locked in battery and lack off SD card slot put me off.
The LG Optimus 4X HD is very cheap for the specs it has. But its running the Nvidia Tegra chipset and I have been burned in the past with Tegra.
Pretty much every phone that used the Tegra 2 AP20H chipset (the phone CPU not the tablet T20 version) didn't get updated to ICS. This isn't normally an issue as you can use a custom ROM. But because of the locked down nature of the Tegra 2 this made it imposable to build a fully working ROM for any device that used the Tegra 2 AP20H.
The Galaxy S3 has been on my radar for awhile, and now that the Official 4.1.2 Jelly Bean Update is being pushed to the UK it gave me more intensive to get it.
The main reason I never decided to get the Galaxy before was because of the high contract prices. Now that the prices have dropped its a very good phone to get.
Here is a video of the dock for the Note 2, but will also work with the Galaxy S3 once it gets the Jelly Bean Update (The JB update will bring all the same functions to the Galaxy S3 as the Note 2). The video shows off some really cool things you can do with the Samsung Galaxy S3/Note 2.
So are you in the market for a new Android phone? Or have you just got one? If so what are you looking at getting/own and why.
Should also give a shout out for the Xiaomi Mi-2. I would of got that but didn't want to go though the hassle of trying to import it from China.
