    No. I just like debates and opinions. But believe me, fanboy wars are stupid. Do what you like and what you want. Just wondering from Ifans.

    Not sure. I've used android phones a bit but never as my full time device and I've never used windows phones other than a couple of minutes in a store.

    I've owned and used iOS, Android and Blackberry devices but I haven't even touched a Windows Phone device. I'm curious about it but not enough to go to a store and have a look.

    Out of the three you suggested, i'd probably go back to an Android device. Probably a Samsung Galaxy variant of some kind, either the S3 or a Note 2. I had an S3 before and it was rubbish but it might have been a 'Friday Afternoon Phone' as it was bought on launch day so probably came with launch day defects. I'm willing to give them another go as Android had some great features.

    I like android's features. But the main issue is how laggy it is.

    IMHO, this is pointless.

    I use Android every day since I have a Samsung Galaxy Express as my work phone. And I used my old work phone, an HTC One X, as my only phone for over three months. So switching to Android wouldn't be an issue.

    Under the circumstance you mentioned, I would 'probably' choose one of new Windows 8 devices. With that in mind, I've read articles that asked is Apple is becoming uncool and I've seen TV ads that proclaim that 'the next best thing' (Samsung) is already here. Yet, I could care less. I am not dissatisfied with any of my Apple products and there is no doubt that I will replace them with newer Apple products whether others think they're cool or not, but that's Just Me, D...
