Looking at a new phone, S3 vs Lumia 820
 
My contract is up, got my PAC and been looking at contract phones

For the price I want to pay I'm looking at either a Samsung S3 or a Lumia 820 in terms of price (There aren't any other Android phones bar the Nexus but that is a no with the lack of microsd)

I've been a bit of a Galaxy fanboy, had the S1, got the S2 now, hence looking at the S3

Apps wise, there isn't much I use it for, a bit of games but it's mostly browsing, sat nav (via copilot or google maps if I want traffic), some data feeds, social networking and occasionally remote desktopping into my server.

Most of what I want will be easy enough to get I can imagine. I am a fan of Swype though so interested to know what the Windows keypad is like

I know Dawson has the Lumia 920, and a lot have the S3 on here so what would people suggest? I'm not hugely fussed either way and might go take a look at some this weekend in a shop if I can :)

I has S3, love it. I do like the look of the Lumia though. I think it's mainly down to which OS you prefer.

Rumours of SIV in March so if you want Android hold out, not saying get the SIV but you will be able to get a much better deal on the SIII :)

Nokia wise thats a good phone, had a play with one and its very nice.

Guess it comes down to which OS you want really.

Yeah I ended up waiting about 6 months for the S3 so settled on the S2 at the time.

I must say I'm tempted by the Windows Phones, gf is likely to be getting a WP8 phone as she seems to want a phone that will last longer, so going phone shopping for both of us this weekend

Thoroughly loving my 920, and the only thing I can really say is see if you can get some hands on time with any of the phones your are considering to ease the decision. :D

Nexus 4 if you can get one is awesome
