Recently some great smartphones have been announced, Motorolla Droid family and Nokia Lumia family. http://www.phonearena.com/news/Moto...XX-HD-vs-Droid-RAZR-M-spec-comparison_id34126 http://www.gsmarena.com/nokia_world-review-808.php I have been looking for a smart phone to buy in near future. I like iPhone aesthetics but hate the software restrictions, so that is not an option. I have come down to three choices lastly: Nokia Lumia win 8 devices( 920 and 820) - nice design, you have to option to choose a cheaper device, a new exciting platform that seem good at the moment. I like the design or 920 more but the price of 820 is very attractive also. Droid Razr Maxx HD or Samsung Galaxy 3 - if I go for Android. O love the long battery life( very imp I think as the battery of my current phone really really annoying, it always get drained to zero when i really need it), great screen and hardware of this Razr although to me its size is a bit bigger for single handed operation and i really don,t like much the design. Galaxy 3 is samsung,s flagship device, very popular, look a great device also but again the design is not so appealing to me and battery life and screen is inferior to Razr. Ultimately I think the deciding factor will be the OS. I will try the windows OS. Android is quiet mature now but I think it,s still far behind iOS in aesthetics. If I liked the windows phone 8 OS, if I felt it mature, smooth and beautiful I wil probably go with one of lumias, otherwise I will choose Droid Razr Maxx HD. Any member here who is planning to get one? What are your thoughts on these phones? I will be interested to read different views.
