    Default Which Android phone?

    Hey guys, which phone would you recommend or is coming out soon?
    Would it be the Galaxy 2 ?

    I really love my BB and love the physical keyboard. I find it almost impossible to type properly on a screen, almost always hitting the wrong bloody buttons, even on my tablet. I have very large hands


    Thanks

    I would reccommend the Galaxy S2 which is out currently. If you really want to wait, the new Galaxy is being announced soon, but bare in mind that there will be at least a 1-2 month wait.

    Hell yes, the biggest problem to overcome is the habit of tapping on the screen, but once you in the mindset of swiping its a whole different ball game, and you reach speeds that you previously thought impossible even with a physical keyboard.

    As for tablet I prefer to use Thumb Keyboard because I normally end up holding the tablet with 2 hands most of the time.

    Being a die hard android fan in the past I would have to say there is nothing better than a iPhone.... It just works, something android lacks

    Opposite feeling from my side, but that is what makes the world go round. If we all conformed to the same norm it would have been a very dull place to live in

    So in short your post bring nothing to the table, please try harder next time.

    If size matters, then get a galaxy note. LOL
    But seriously, i tried writing a short message on a BB & it took forever. kept pressing more than 1 key at a time. With the note, its not so bad

    Swype might feel weird at first, but I find it difficult to do it any other way on the phone now.

    Galaxy S2 had its flaws, but still a great phone. I love it And choice to customize EVERYTHING is fantastic.

    Iphones nice too, but screen is too small imo, I will see what the iphone 5 looks like, I was very dissappointed playing around with the iphone 4s (unless you jailbreak), but even then I prefer android.

    The galaxy nexus / galaxy note?

    As MrMocs says the HTC One looks to be a fantastic phone.

    At the moment there is too much speculation regarding with S3 and iphone 5 will be, so if you dont wanna wait, S2

    EDIT:

    Topic is android phone, so iphone not applicable
