    My girlfriend is really happy with her San Francisco, I've offered to buy her a newer model, or even give her my iPhone 4 when I get a new one, but she always insists she's happy with what she has.

    The problem is, the battery life now is starting to suffer, I think it's through misuse (she takes great physical care of it, but sometimes lets the battery run down to zero!) than anything, but I figured to save spending however much on a new battery (I'm guessing

    The San Diego has gotten decent reviews. It's (I believe) the first released with an Intel processor. Looks to be free on contract. The HTC One S is also another great option. Pretty much anything new would be a great update for her.

    Not a problem. I'm always jealous with the phone selections you guys have across the pond versus our carrier restrictions here.

    Ah, I never knew it was that bad over there!

    Would importing one of the (many) cheap Chinese Android phones be a good option by the way?

    I would say absolutely not! The specs may look good, they may be running ICS, but often times there's no support, they break down etc. If you're on a budget, a used phone from a reputable manufacturer is a good bet.

    Got the San Diego today. It's really good, very quick. Intel inside really makes a difference. Handsome little phone, good build quality. I sold my Samsung Note for it. The only downside is all the Orange crap on it. Might look to see if there is root info on XDA.
