Although I have been impressed with the specs of the HTC One series especially the S and the X, I have tried a Custom ROM port of One V on my DHD , I must say I do not like what HTC have done with ICS with the new Sense 4.
As I have had the Galaxy Nexus since release date in the UK I have enjoyed the pure Google experience, this may have influenced my leaning towards a phone with as little Custom UI as possible, especially as previously Sense has been far and away my favourite manufacturer UI.
To get to the point, which I haven't done so far, my choices would be

1.Galaxy Nexus
2.Samsung Galaxy III
3. Asus Padfone ( a beautiful designed handset if the version shown is to be the final version)
4. HTC One X

If only HTC would have their best widgets as stand alone widgets that did not rely on Sense

That will cost you a fair bit more than £150

It's getting on my nips that there aren't any reviews for the One X yet. A few high rated reviews for it and I'll be more than happy to take up one of the preorder offers around.

I definitely agree with this, but I am probably going to get the One X because I am sick of AMOLED now (S2 AMOLED Plus and Nexus AMOLED HD)

Also game and app development looks promising with Tegra 3

I currently have an HtC Desire and have been very happy with it. I'm currently looking at the HtC One X or the Samsung Galaxy SIII (depending on the final specs). I was seriously looking at the Galaxy Note earlier in the year but it is just that bit too big for me. The other 4.7" phones seem about right. I want a big screen for the internet, but it also needs to be pocketable.

The big drawbacks for me on the HtC One X are the lack of removable battery, hard camera button and SD card storage. My contract is up next month so hopefully Samsung will announce the SIII and I can do some comparisons, though I must say I didn't enjoy the last Samsung phone I owned.

We went for a play with new phones this afternoon for my girlfriend and she's torn between the s2 and Sony xperia s. I'm leaning towards the Sony for her, the display is absolutely stunning on it and being a year old and the refusal to update the galaxy s I'm not sure how long Samsung will care about the s2 for. It's tempting to nab a Sony for myself if she doesn't at £21 a month, as long as they sort out the ics update soon its a good first try on their own. I'd be intrigued to see what the HTC ones are like when they hit the shelves

With current phone available on market, I might go to one-x.
For me, phone is not just about high spec (cpu,etc - I'm barely playing games, mostly phone and photo function) but also must have "my-taste" body design and (un)fortunately, htc always can give me that (nexus one, flyer,sensation).

Since I can't buy a phone until june, so for future I will have more option in regards of body design, I might go to SIII or huawei ascend too, need to see and touch the real product after they released. If their body design and material do not fit "my-taste" or can't beat htc, then I'll go to one-x

I will go for a SamsungGalaxy s3. Galaxy s2 is one of the best phones I have ever used. I'm prettysure Galaxy s3 would be even better.

I'm looking at the Samsung Galaxy SIII and the Galaxy Note. A large screen (great for ageing eyes) and working USB OTG are must haves for me. I would be interested in the HTC ONE X but for the USB OTG issue. Still looking at others though. :)

I will be purchasing a Galaxy S3.

Initially, I looked at the HTC device. Unfortunately on my carrier (Rogers - Canada), the HTC One is lackluster. With a maximum storage of 16Gb and no MicroSD slot, the phone is nearly useless to me. Add to that, the HTC One's problem with aggressive task killing ... AND the problems with the Wifi, I'm not interested.

On top of that, that really nice white polycarbonate shell is porous and can be discoloured by things like your pants. HTC came close to me becoming a customer, but they fell short of the mark for me.

Fascinating reading previous posters choices & reasons. Mine are perhaps a little different:
  • I have a company-supplied network contract and can use whatever phone I like (BYOD)
  • I've been using a ZTE Blade with CM7.1 and its been a truely *great* workhorse
  • But I need a bit more performance (faster & dual cores?), a slightly bigger screen (4" ideal), lots of storage (microSD essential), and better battery life (easily user replaceable battery ideally)
  • Size matters a lot to me. It's *got* to be easily pocketable (phones with 4.3" screens are really getting too big for me)
  • I don't care about games, and camera quality doesn't have to be the ultimate
  • Some of the Cyanogenmod features are now *must have* for me, so it needs to be supported (preferably under CM9)
  • The phone isn't a fashion statement for me, so I have no need to have the very latest phone & bleeding edge features
  • I'll be buying outright, unlocked and contract-free, so price matters.
From that lot, the best I can find at the moment is the Samsung Galaxy S Advance (the i9070). It's a fair step up from my Blade in all respects, it seems to meet almost all my requirements, and (because its only a mid-level phone) the price is pretty good.

The only questionmark is whether Cyanogenmod will support it or not. If not then I'll probably need to think again, but I've not seen anything else that comes as close to meeting my wish list at the moment.

I bought the ZTE Blade II a couple of weeks ago, biggest mistake ever coz I thought it was the same as the ZTE Crescent(since some stickied topics carried the same name).

Haven't been able to root it and the internal memory is really low(as it is with any ZTE phone).

I would get a moto defy again, or one of it's variants. Longest I've had a phone for. Takes the knocks, can get it wet (rain, spills...), still no scratches. Not the best of the androids but does what I want, moto support is great. Honestly I never had a phone more than a year & after two this still feels new. Despite a minor hiccup along the timeline (earpiece failure, common fault) this just served to make it a very understated phone. Other people must like it if moto kept it going with a few new models.

It kinda reminds me of the old Neonode N2, only better. I prefer small phones.

I've had a GS2 for a year now and although I don't want to change it, I'd only go for the next Google phone. This is mainly due to the speed of software updates and the timing of my contract ending.

you will be waiting approx 2 years then would be my guess

otherwise you could spend £100 right now and just get a G300 now which is twice as good as your blade. my wife has went from blade to skate to the g300. tbh i dont know why you have not upgraded already. it costs pennies to do if you upgrade at the right time.

the blade sold for £95 on ebay and i only paid £90 for it, the skate cost me £90ish which then sold for £87 on ebay, the g300 cost £99 plus £5.50 for unlock, will most likely sell for £85+ when i decide to upgrade her.

therefore she has had 3 pretty decent phones over the past few years and it has cost her probably £10 per year to own them.
