contract ending


Well-Known Member
So as another 18 year contract comes to an end, my upgrade options will be available in January.

Best phone ive had by far and will be sad to see the DHD go but, new pastures and all that jazz


What to get next?

Are you desperate to change? If you can hold off a couple of months, my wife was telling me that the Galaxy S4 should be due out in March... by then, I'd have thought, other operators should be offering 4G in the UK too... just an idea :)

I know what you mean about what cost. If you're not bothered about 4G, then there's no point in waiting.

If you can get yourself another 18 month contract too, then you'll be sure that, by Summer 2014, 4G will be out on more networks, so the price should be more competative! :)

Think you won't go far wrong with the Nexus 4... looks pretty tasty :D

Personally I wouldn't get a 4G phone myself. Three's network is pretty good and they are currently rolling out DC-HSPA which is even faster, nearly getting to 4G speeds without having to pay for a 4G phone (and their incredibly low data caps on 4G) :D

I would definitely go for either the Galaxy Note 2 or the Nexus 4. I've had a go with a N4 a few times recently and it is awesome, but I love the massive screen and huge battery of the note 2 :D

You may want to wait a month and see if the HTC Butterfly will be offered... S4 with a 1080p display.

Not being biased here but you cant go wrong with the Nexus 4. Yes the S4 will be out next year but at a price, and more than

I'd agree with CDPlant in all the fuss about 4G, especially in the UK....not worth it tbh. Too overpriced at present.

I agree with this... do think though that, once other networks roll it out, which shouldn't be too long, the price will become more competative/coverage will be much better.

I live 15 miles outside of Sheffield (which is one of the cities that has had 4G rolled out) and know that we don't get coverage where I live... makes it pointless for me (for now).

Get a note 2 if screen size isnt an issue or s3


Get the nexus 4 from google, then upgrade your contract to a sim only plan for a cheaper monthly bill.

Seriously, if you're coming from a dhd, any of those mentioned above will be such an upgrade. Don't really know if it'd be worth waiting around tbh for a s4 because the phones out at the moment are so much more advanced than your current one anyway.
