    I am a music maniac and tested lots of phones before getting this one.

    I tested them with the earphones.

    To me and many others it sounds better than iPhone by far.

    I didn't test the new models of HTC Beats with supersound, they came out too late.

    Try before buying. Samsung and Sony have the best cameras and sound quality.

    Until then... stick with something more flexible and better supported.


    I've got a Samsung Galaxy 3 32GB model running Android 4.04 and quite frankly, it's an awesome phone and android has been a very pleasant surprise. My sister has had several iPhone models 2/3Gs/4 etc I've played with and used and the G3 shits all over them imo.

    I highly doubt you'd regret going Android based.

    I personally like these headphones the best. They are quite comfortable and not that costly ...I cant afford anything D:

    You can install Chrome from app store
    My slow iPhone 3g can't run chrome D;

    Absolutely! I highly recommend android. I've had it on my last two phones and currently have it on my Samsung galaxy S2...I also have a Motorola Xoom which runs android. The great thing about android is it's open source and there is a huge community of ROM builders. Now I know you said you were tired of jail breaking your i-phone but if you root an android device your really unlocking it's full potential and it's something Google encourage (but will void your warranty).
    I am currently running the latest android operating system (jelly bean) on both my devices thanks to the Android community and I have not looked back since. Android V4 (Ice cream sandwich) and V4.1 (Jelly bean) are great systems so if you are looking for an android device I recommend getting one with those systems installed (if you can't be bothered to do it yourself). Most of the cheaper phones are still running Gingerbread which is android V. 2 and to be honest it's not that great.

    My bro-in-law has a HTC desire running one of the V2 versions of Android (not sure which) - and yes, it's not that great. It almost put me off going Android.

    But as mentioned, V4xx are very good. It's like night and day really.

    I have an iPhone 3GS and my AT&T contract is up on November 1st. My wife and daughter both have the HTC Inspire Android phones. I tried to like their phone, but it's buggy and will not sync with the PC's we have so I'm thinking seriously about the Nokia Lumia 920 Windows phone for my next phone. I hated the iPhone and the Android seems flakey (at least the two I tried)...
