So what do you have and whats it like
You've potentially opened up a can of worms here!
A lot of iPhone owners can't see the wood for the trees, and will swear blind that the iPhone is the best thing ever (which it isn't, and I own one).
A lot of Android owners will dismiss anything that an iPhone owner says on the basis that "iPhones are crap".
I've owned countless Android handsets (HTC Desire, Desire HD, Sensation XE, One X, Samsung Galaxy Note, Galaxy Nexus), and every version of the iPhone, as well as 2 Windows phones (HTC HD7 and Nokia Lumia 800) so I feel that I'm fairly well qualified to comment without giving some of the one-sided nonsense that Apple/Android fanboys tend to spout at one another.
To tell the truth, there really is very little to set any one of the current crop of smartphones above another. Each phone will do everything you ask of it, and each phone will do certain things better, and other things worse than others. A lot of it will boil down to:
a) Whichever operating system you prefer (Android/iOS/Windows)
b) Your budget
c) Your requirements (good camera/good screen/powerful processor/good social network integration etc)
- If you want a good camera, look at the HTC One X, Nokia Lumia 820/920 (when released) Samsung Galaxy S3 or iPhone 4S or 5.
- If you want something with a powerful processor, look at the HTC One X or Samsung Galaxy S3.
- If you want something with a good battery, look at the Motorola Droid RAZR MAXX (I think?), or the iPhone 5 (which I'm currently testing the battery on and I'm very impressed with as it knocks the HTC One X into a cocked hat).
- For something with a decent screen for watching movies etc, look at the Galaxy S3 with it's 4.8" Super AMOLED HD effort, which looks fantastic.
So, as far as I see it, you have a few choices. If it was my money, here's what I'd narrow it down to:
Android - Galaxy S3, HTC One X
iOS - iPhone 4S or iPhone 5 (worth the extra)
Windows - Nokia Lumia 820/920, or wait a few months for the HTC 8X.
