I still love my Nokia Lumia 920. Windows Phone 8.1 has everything I need, including a good camera, although I want more megapixels. The 930 looks good. Main frustration is Windows ARM devices cannot be used on Virgin WiFi, despite Lufthansa BordConnect making it available to WinRT/WP8 elsewhere.

Key complaint about any big smartphone is vulnerability to the screen smashing. I have found the Otterbox Defender to be possibly overkill, and an annoyance at night when taking photos due to flash interference, but dropping it doesn't worry me, and when I let the kids use Kids Corner (sheltered part of phone), I am not stressed.

My current Nokia is a 520 Lumia. Not bad but my last Nokia, the E5 has such a long battery life and downloadable maps from around the world. The 520 lumia locks you into the country you are in for driving unless you a pay $20 licence and the battery quickly drains in map mode. Hence why I have kept my old E5 for maps when I overseas.

Had Nokia's for years from the early 8 inch long versions with the pull out aerials to the 6720, bought it to go to Japan, was one of few that worked over there. Also had satnav.
This was quickly killed by iphones large screen, maps and google earth so had to update. Nokia was nowhere at that stage.
Then went to Samsung S2 and recently to S5, I hate iTunes, drag and drop for me, and a removeable SD card is a better idea, also not a fan of clouds, manual backup for me.
Bought the Telstra version for Blue Tick, 10 minutes from here and Telstra is all you get.
S5 seemed huge at first but now the S2 seems tiny. S5 supposedly dust and waterproof but haven't really tested it yet.

I do have an ipad air as well so have a bet each way I suppose.
Ipad is only used for Travel really, use a Windows PC for most home computer use.

Recently shifted from the caged world of iOS to the android breathing HTC One M8

I had been meaning to make the switch for a while, can't believe I took this long!

I'm looking to Root my Note 3 soon and increase the DPI. The stock layout does the screen no justice.
