Cool beans, I was being slightly offensive while referring to the iphone or sheep phone as I like to call them. I would get an s3 any day of the week but dont discount the windows 8 phones either I have a galaxy note and I see the note 2 kicks absolute ass if you can live with the size. Ive had iphones and Mac's and ipads I have none now, apple are like the old bag in nanny mcphee, way too controlling
I too am not one to go for what's 'popular' it all started with the white headphones (which sounded shit and were uncomfortable)
I have to hand it to apple though, their products do seem to last, in my opinion. I've got a 1st generation iPod Touch, and it's still going strong. AAC at 160 Kbps I get at least 20 hours of audio playback.
The price of their phones is daft. When considering a contract phone, do the maths and work out what you pay for the tariff as the handset is recouped in the contract itself.
