I've been hoping to get a new phone for a while. Currently using a Nokia 6500 Slide for (unlimited texts 400 free minutes for only £13 a month), which is quite a bog standard phone and I felt it time for a change when my contract with Orange ended. I have been offered the HTC Desire as an upgrade at a fantastic monthly rate (Orange don't do the HTC Legend which I liked more) and the HTC Legend from Vodafone. My problem I'm not sure which one to go for.
I'll only really use a phone for texting, emailing, internet use, GPS and games and emergency calls.
I like the Legend as it's aesthetically more pleasing to look at. It's also slightly smaller which again I prefer for "pocketability". But having read many reviews it would seem the Desire is definitely the better phone with the bigger better screen and the more powerful engine.
In addition to the above Vodafone offered me the Legend, (unlimited texts and internet and 300 free minutes for only £20 a month, no handset fee).
I phoned Orange to cut off my line and they offered me the Desire (unlimited texts and internet and 200 free minutes for only £15 a month, no handset fee).
Staying with Orange would mean I can keep my phone number.
As you might imagine I've been offered some great deals but have to make a decision. Can someone with a little bit of experience give me some advice or feedback to help me make up my mind on which one to choose?
P.s. I tried searching the forum for both devices but am struggling to get any hits, perhaps these devices are known by different names outwith the UK or Europe? Edit: just found this android section of Modaco..
