    What smartphone to get?

    I am looking to buy a new smartphone. I am torn between the htc one, the samsung galaxy s3 lte, galaxy note 2 lte, iphone 5 and the sony xperia z. I am also told the samsung galaxy s4 will be out soon, how much roughly will that be. I live in the uk and I am a moderate-heavy user who wants a lag free experience, but also the best value for money. The phone also needs to be future proof and get all the needed updates, as I will be getting it on a 2 year contract. What is the best smartphone for me, and why?

    Thank you for your time.

    What smartphone to get?

    iPhones are supported well over 2 years and tend to stay lag free for at least two generations.

    If you value getting timely OS updates over the long term, there's just two phones right now... iPhone 5 and Nexus 4.

    Most Android manufacturers stop supporting a phone after about a year (Samsung included), owing to a handful of factors like sluggish carrier approvals for updates, underestimating hardware demands or just not caring about a phone that's no longer in stores. Most Nexus phones are officially supported by Google itself, which has typically supported them for a good two years. And Apple... well, Apple sees its smartphones as long-term investments, and has much more control over the update process than most of its rivals.

    iPhone 5 for lag free experience

    sure other android phones are flawless too but try to add 20-30 apps that need constant internet like facebook, twitter, etc. you will find occassional lag although it wont matter much.

    But objectively i would choose xperia z. Its water resistance feature is useful when you need walking gps navigation and at the same time it's raining outside

    want up to date secure software without fragmentation and quirks, stay away from adroid. bb z10 and iphone would be my only choice. yes, they do not have the most advanced features and latest cutting edge tech but they work and keep working without tinkering...

    Wait for the iphone 5s I thought iphone is the best option for you because these phone devices are much more than just a cellphone. If you want to know why I choose iphone than just Google it. Hope you will get the right answer there.
