Question
Hey, trading in my current iphone 3g (hopelessly outdated) at the weekend, my local cex has three phones I'm prepared to get, namely the nokia lumia 710, htc mozart and htc desire s. I'm reluctant to get the nokia due to the cutting down to micro sim, but if you think it's worth taking the risk then I will consider it. Don't suggest any other phones please as these are the only 3 that I am able to get hold of at the store.

I'm thinking about getting a tablet for christmas, I've set my sights on the nexus 10 but just waiting for the money to come in. At first i was hoping for the laptop/tablet and maybe sell of my laptop that I have because I mainly use my galaxy s3. What do you guys think?

Hi there,

I want to buy a new smartphone (my first one yeah ), but I can't really decide which one exactly as almost every phone has some drawbacks.
Maybe I should first mention what I want to use the phone for:
- Internet
- Chat (like whatsapp)
- some games
- gps
- 4" to 4,3"
- take some snapshots
- not charing the phone every 6 hours
- Jelly Bean (or a certain update within the next 3 months)
Currently my favorites are the Samsung Galaxy S Advance and the Galaxy SIII mini. I can get the S Advance with NFC for about 260€, the SIII mini for 300€. But the S Advance has only 768 MB RAM so I'm not sure whether this is enough for a longer time. The SIII mini has no NFC and lacks things like the notification LED and Auto-Brightness. And both have a pretty old GPU.
So I also looked for other manufactures, but in my price range (up to 300€) there aren't so many "new" phones ( I don't really want to buy a year old phone, when I see how fast they develope), or they have bigger drawbacks (no amoled, build-in battery etc.).

So can I get happy with one of those two phones? Which one would you prefer? Or are there any alternatives?

Thank you in advance and sorry for my bad english

Any suggestions???

Ok, problem with the Nexus 4 is, it will be shipped in January (if not even later), and as my old phone is broken, i would need a new one in a short time.
What's about the Galaxy Nexus? It has still better hardware than most of the new smartphones in this price range...

But, are there no other 4 - 4,3" phones that are better than the Galaxy S Advance/S3 mini for a similar price? Or do i have to take a bigger size to have better hardware?

AFAIK the Desire X has the better screen, faster processor, bigger battery while staying thinner. Meanwhile, the Ace 2 has a betetr Camera, faster internet speed (does it really matter that much?) and... yeah, that's it. Right now I'm closer to getting the Desire X, am I on the right track?

Doesn't anyone have some advice for me? :/
