Need help choosing a phone from Rogers
Samsung Galaxy S3: $56 (including taxes)
LG Optimus G: $112.98
Nokia Lumia 920: $56
iPhone 5: $202
HTC Windows Phone 8X: $33
I'm most reluctant to pick up the iPhone 5 just because it's a b it out of my budget - didn't really want to spend more than $100, but considering the LG Optimus G is newer and faster than S3, I don't mind throwing a bit more down. I really do like the S3's sleek design and overall that phone has been given a lot of props, the only issue is, I'm afraid a new model is right around the corner. Some models come out at short as 8 months, and considering the S3 has been out since May, it might only be a few months before the S4 pops up. I know the LG Optimus just recently came out, and apparently it's one of the first phone to have LTE w/ a Snapdragon S4 quad core processor, however not every review has been stellar.
I prefer the Windows 8 interface over Android and iOS, but I've heard really crappy things about the battery, especially in the Lumia 920 (some people saying it died after 4 hours of video testing, others saying it didn't even last them a day on moderate usage). If anyone owns the HTC or Lumia 920, please do let me know your experience.
Finally, if anyone recommends other models to check out, please let me know - I don't want an older generation iPhone because that means after 2 years when I'm elegible for an upgrade - I'll be 3 generations behind - I like to stay as up to date as possible. Nexus 4 was a nice alternative but, in usual Google fashion, they botched the release and I honestly don't have the patience to keep checking multiple times a day to see if it's in stock.
