Which phones have come out in the past few months?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I live in a craphole, so all prices are two/threefold to what you are used to.

A family member of mine will go to Russia in mid-october where he can get me a cellphone. Problem is, no cellphone survives there for more than 6 months. It doesn't get a price cut. It disappears from the market and is replaced by something else.

I really wanted to get a galaxy S2 (450US$) but it's the same price as an S3 (500US$, reason stated above). and S1 is about 300US$ (all of them unlocked, of course).

I'm not very much into apple stuff, I feel it's very simplified.. I like to use my phone as an mp3 player, camera, and a brick, for whenever it accidentally falls. I feel like buying anything more expensive will turn out as a waste. I should emphasize the "mp3 player" part, as I really like my music on the go.

I can, however, get a IPhone 4S for 300$ (or whatever price it is in the USA, because it's the same), but I feel it's an overkill. Locally, it costs around 900US$.

Are there any decent phones which came out in the past months and suit my needs? It can be anything since it's practically free. But I'd like something sturdy and that fits nicely in the pocket.

If you can afford it, I would go with the Galaxy S3. I have a Galaxy S2 Epic 4G Touch and I've been quite pleased with it.

Yeah get the S3 if you can. I love mine.

The only smartphones worth considering in 2012 are the Samsung Galaxy S3 and the iPhone 5.

I would go with the Samsung Galaxy S3.

The iPhone 5 has too many issues like build quality issues, purple camera tinting issues and Apple maps is buggy, inaccurate and laggy.
