    Default Not spam - a Mobile Phone question! Samsung Galaxy S3, HTC ONE XL, iPhone 5

    Hey Everyone,


    Due to several major network problems, the contracts we recently took out have been granted early release. So we are again on the market looking for phones.

    We are looking at Telstra for the coverage and this time I am unsure on what phone to go for.

    I had the HTC One X and after playing with Telstras One XL, the XL is far better phone however I am not convinced to get one again.

    So I played with a Galaxy SIII today and wow at the camera. It perfectly captured a crystal clear and sharp image of my very busy daughter. Something the HTC couldn't do. This has made me love the phone but I wanted to see if anyone could advise me on the app store that they use. Is it google play?? Can you get bub hub app on the Samsung? (I would hate to not be able to get it).

    My other thing is, do I just use my prepaid sim card for a week and wait for the iPhone 5. Which I know that I would love.

    Advice please ) I am being so indecisive on this.

    Thanks guys!

    I'd go iPhone, always an iPhone
    Galaxy is Android, and you can get a bubhub app through the Android Market (I think?), but I'm not a fan of Android. I'm just not a fan of anything but iPhone

    Great question! I'll be watching with interest. Haven't really been interested in an iphone and loved the SGII but haven't played with the SGIII. Hubby has an iphone so I think he's keen to get me the new one. I'm soooo used to my old slide out button Sony Ericsson HEHE!

    SIII... I know people are ridiculously faithful to iPhones, but once you go galaxy, you never go back. Like never. For apps, I have an iPod touch , so it didn't really come into play, the difference in markets. But I know which one is way easier to navigate and doesn't break if you drop it. All that happens is the back pops off, and you put it back on and off you go.
