Hello

I currently own a Sensation XL. I would like to upgrade to an Ice Cream Sandwich device but I'm afraid to lose all of the Sense goodies. On the other hand I don't like the fact that htc has a very laggy interface(pulling down the notification bar, switching between homescreens etc). The Sensation XL is planned for an ICS upgrade but I really dislike the looks of the icons and fonts htc used for Sense. I love how the vanilla ICS looks, i love the fact google has implemented buttons within the screen. I like the HD screen and various other aspect related things the Nexus has. So on one hand I like how the Nexus looks, performs and the fact that it will always receive updates but I am worried I will lose facebook integration, smartdialing and other Sense goodies htc has covered.

TELL ME WHAT TO DO I'M VERY CONFUSED!

> In reply to Sudha @ 2012-03-11 17:56 from uvuk - click to readHi! I propose you the Galaxy Note if you want a phone with a BIG screen. The Note has a much better battery. The HTC Sensation XL has a very weak battery. If the Note is too big, I think you should go for the Galaxy S2. It's better than the Sensation XL. About the One X I don't know what to say. The LG Optimus 4X has a better battery(2140 vs 1800 mAh). The LG can support a memory card slot also. If you want a new phone badly, you can go for the Motorola Razr, which is a good phone too. By the way you can compare all the phones you want in this site. Please do it and see the differences. I would not propose you to go for Iphone, because they are limited. You can't send files via Bluetooth to other brands, unless you hack your phone. This is just an example.
If you like Sony, you can go for the Sony Xperia S. :)

Hi guys.
I am absolutely confused as to which mobile to purchase.When I saw the specifications of HTC ONE X , I was totally convinced to buy it but when I learnt that its battery is in-built, I have started hesitating to buy it.Perhaps I would buy it if I am assured that the battery would be replaced if its performance undermines as apple company does.
I can buy iphone 4s but I would prefer a larger screen mobile as I like to browse most of the time.
I had also thought of buying Samsung galaxy S2 but read reviews of it,of which most of them are complaints about its battery performance.
Given the specifications of HTC ONE X, every other mobile appears second to it.
So please advise me as to which mobile is better to buy.Be it HTC,Samsung,Apple or Nokia or any other good mobile manufacturer.Large screen for browsing,High sensitivity touch screen and high battery performance are my requirements.Pleasse share your opinion.
Thanks
Sudha
