    Hi! :hello:

    My mobile phone contract runs out in a month's time and I will be getting a new one, but I have no idea which to get!

    Any ideas? What phone do you have? What pros and cons have you found with it? What reviews have you heard about other phones?

    Thank you!

    My contract runs out in August, so I need one by then really.

    Personally, I've always found iPhones to be very good, but a bit overrated. I would consider getting one, though.

    Do you know if LGs, Samsungs or Sonys are any good?

    Yeah I've used them all except an LG like I've always had an iphone so I'm used to that but my parents and my brother have like a sony/Samsung/htc if you're into that I would get the htc one m8 as it's built well and actually looks good but the camera is just average but you should be fine for instagram etc as for speed all the best phones from the Samsung/sony etc are the same

    Idk maybe pay one month on pay as you go?? And then get the iphone?? The screen on the new iphone is meant to be unbreakable apparently http://youtu.be/5R0_FJ4r73s

    I might do that, unless I find a phone that I like more than I'd like the iPhone. I know someone who has a HTC One - it seems excellent, but nothing special if I'm honest…

    Maybe a Sony would be a good idea because I have a Sony now and (although a different Sony would be a bit different obviously) I would be used to the layout and things like that.

    Yeah you could get a sony if you want, I think the Z2 is the best one they have and it's quite good! However unlike apple who has one phone per year sony makes phones twice a year so there will probably be a Z2S by September time, it'll look the same but probably faster/better camera like it's an annoying feeling when you get the "best" phone and in a month a new one comes making you wish that you'd have waited

    I know what you mean, that is such an annoying feeling. I'll check out the Sony Z2

    The Lumia releases in the UK on the 17th I believe, through Phones4U and possibly Amazon?
    EDIT: And apparently EE soon...

    I'm thinking of the iPhone 5s or perhaps the Sony Xperia Z2. The HTC One M8 seems good too as well as the Samsung Galaxy S5.

    Do you think the iPhone 5s is good or overrated? Is it worthy the money and does it have a big enough screen?

    At the moment, I have a Sony Xperia S. I've loved having this phone, but it's just getting old. It's crashing often and it's not got much memory space left, so this is why I'm going to upgrade it.

    My mum has an xperia s and it might not feel as good as you're going from a bigger display to a smaller one, also the new iphone comes out soon so the value for an iPhone 5s will fall when it comes out, i don't think it's overrated but buying it now wouldn't be wise

    My contract runs out in August and I think the iPhone 6 comes out later, so I can't wait for that. :s
