Anyone got a good phone they think I should look at?
At the moment im looking at a Samsung Galaxy SII or a Sony Xperia S. I want the Sony but I have read some bad things about it.
Anyone got one of these two? or another phone thats worth a look?

I like the looks of the X and S3 but they're a bit big, S3 especially! The old trend of phones getting smaller and smaller seems to be reversing now!

Great value for money.
Respectfully, I disagree.
They really aren't. I've been on both the apple and android bandwagons. The iPhones tend to be rather temperamental, especially seeming to be very susceptible to damage from being dropped etc. In comparison my s2 is much more hardy, taking being dropped on a regular basis in it's stride.
The S2 also has a two year warranty over the 4S' one year. I've also managed to buy the £14 official Samsung increased capacity battery for my S2 that the 4S simply can't compete with in terms of cost of battery replacement, as well as standby times.
The Samsung's are also simply MUCH cheaper both to buy and to get contracts on.
The android operating system is also very good. I don't miss any of the features of IOS. It took a while to get the best out of android. But it can certainly compete with apple.

I've had a HTC before this and didn't like the lag on it and also the bloatware. The SIII has the quad core processor like the HTC One X but with a better screen and camera etc etc.
Your best bet is to go to somewhere like carphone warehouse and have a play around on the ones you like and see which you prefer as what I like may not be what you like

The Samsungs seem pretty good but I used a samsung phone agout a year ago and hated it, im sure once I got used to it it would be fine but it really put me off
Edited to add
Sorry boodeny, But I would not have that over priced bit of junk if you paid me!!

However, recently I've had the i5700 which was quite good, but now we've got a Galaxy, Galaxy SII and a Galaxy W. All brilliant phones. By the time the contracts are up on these, we'll probably be going for something like a Galaxy Siv or Sv the rate they come out with them, but I'll be sticking with Samsung and Android.
iPhones.... You can iKeep them.

But I'll keep my Blackberry, as it's the phone I like, which suits my needs, doesn't cost me too much and does everything I want. And that - is ultimatly the deciding factor for anyone choosing a phone imo

Having spent 3 weeks on an iPhone I wouldn't go near one again, bricky and far too controlled. The only thing I did enjoy was having all my music sync'd between itunes and my phone compared to having to double up playlists between itunes and the samsung software, but even that was solved by Spotify.

The camera is amazing on it and although it doesn't have an SD card slot, it has enough memory for anything (It'.s also HD and can be plugged into an HD TV.)
If you've used any of the Sony Xperia range previously, you'll find it very easy to use, as most of the interface is the same.
