Default Today (3rd) Is Upgrade day!!

Yep, Orange have sent me an email and today is the day I can upgrade...yaaay!

It's going to be hard to give up my adopted baby but the DHD has to go


The question is what next??

HTC isn't an option at the moment due to non expandable memory, so it's looking like either the SG3 or maybe the something from Sony - but I do like the SG3 especially with the limited edition Olympics design available!!

The other option is to keep the DHD for a bit, maybe drop to a PAYG SIM until HTC see sense (No pun intended) and release a phone that I can put a memory card in.

You won't regret an S3 - great software, great camera, super fast, really good battery life and jelly bean coming really soon

Rooting it is a bit strange (and you have to do backups of certain folders in the system that aren't in HTC phones) but it's very easy and there are a lot of roms available.

I say go for it

I would think that decision for the average user would depend upon how big a phone you want, and how much you want the stylus. The main draw of the Note 2 for the technically inclined is the 2 GB of RAM.

The Note is nice, but I want a phone, not some hybrid tablet / phone and the stylus went out with my old Sony Xperia running windows.

I think it's the S3.

If it's the size of the note that puts you off, then fair enough. But if it's the pen, well, I never use it. It's just there tucked away in the phone. It's not mandatory that you have to use the thing.
