Hey guys,

ive been looking at upgrading from my good but now struggling iphone 3GS. it has proven me well over the years. . . but i think its time.

Ive been looking at getting a Nokia Lumia 920 but trying to find the best outright price i can find it for. Does any of your strange home countries have the Cyan coloured one? I want that colour lol

and at what price gentlemen?

Any other recommendations? i know there are some pretty techno savvy twats here. . . ez im looking at you Wink

Yo! Never tried Lumia 920 but I had Samsung ATIV S for a few days while my iPhone 5 was being fixed/replaced.
Didn't like that windows mobile experience but then again I only used it for a very short time. Might get better after you get used to it.

I like many things about iPhone 5 but battery isn't one of them. I ran out almost daily - well usually at the evening time but it's not nice if you are at a bar etc. That's why I'm always carrying charger cable with me. Been thinking of going back to 4S but that stupid glass back puts me off.

Lumia 920 are €599 over here but no Cyan (Grey, black, white, yellow and red available)

I have just got the Xperia Z, unlike my trainers it's water and dust proof and shatter proof too. It's an amazing screen and very fast, build quality is second to none I would say. Hope this helps.

honestly ive only heard good things about the lumia 920. except for hte lack of apps on the windows phones.... this one stands out - screen resolution, camera is second to none, puremotion display.

the only apps i use are facebook, instagram, ebay and net banking. thats all i ask of a phone lol

i have looked at the galaxy note 2.. but man its so damn big. The nokia has a nice weighty feel to it. Thats the only problem i find with the Galaxy's... they dont have a well-made "feel". if only they went aluminium on the S4

I've had few problems with the battery on my iPhone 5.
Admittedly I try to remember to turn off the applications once I'm finished with them but I can easily go a couple or more days between charges.

hmm the Xperia Z does look good... but same price tag as an iphone 5 isnt appealing.

Blutooth, too, Pure. If you use it.
