    So true, one of my friend own an HTC One and even he admits that the picture quality of the camera is pretty bad (And there are countless reviews that support that). On the good side, the design is probably the best one out there. I liked the design a lot. :D

    I like the design too, particularly the front speakers. But I don't like the non removable battery.

    Now design-wise Mini is great. You can hold it nicely and securely and you can reach almost all areas with your thumbs. Can't say that about other models. :)

    Nokia – a 'not at all smart' fliptop phone which I only use to send\receive calls.

    I've never bothered to connect it to the internet - even send my SMS via my laptop. (I get regular bonus SMS credits from my laptop's mobile broadband service)

    I don't have much experience with smartphones.

    I purchased a 'budget' no contract smartphone about a year ago, but have decided to get something a little better.

    I found a no contract smartphone which I like (LG Optimus F3). However, the main criticism of this smartphone is the very limited space for your own Apps. I only have a couple of Apps installed on my current smartphone. So I don't think that this would be an issue for me.

    Question: If I purchase the LG Optimus F3, can I still access and easily open and store files (i.e., jpg's, pdf's, txt's, doc's, mp3's, etc.) stored on an optional SDCard (32 GB)?

    Thanks in Advance.

    Yes - you can with any Android phone which support for a SD Card.

    Also you can store some apps too if you're running low on internal storage.

    Low internal memory is a big problem IMO.
    Not all apps can be stored in the SD and Android likes to store thing in its internal memory partition.

    It is, but if you have a rooted phone you can use Link2SD to install any app to a SD card. You have to create a partition to be used by Link2SD on your SD card, and then you can get Link2SD to link apps to the SD card.

    Does anyone have any comments or feelings about purchasing "Unlocked" SmartPhones?

    It looks to me like the main negative is that "Unlocking" the SmartPhone voids the Manufacturer's Warranty.

    I want a larger screen and faster SmartPhone than my current 3.7" screen single core SmartPhone. I do not like cell phone "contracts".

    It looks like the Samsung Galaxy Note "Unlocked" gives me a good screen size (5.3") and screen resolution combined with good performance. An "Unlocked" Samsung Galaxy Note seems to be selling for around $300.

    Any comments?

    Thank in Advance.

    Ive never heard of unlocked phones voiding warranty, as long as it originally came unlocked or was unlocked legally through the carrier.

    Unlocking Carrier doesn't void warranty unlocking bootloader does.

    If you want a good deal on smartphones (sorry if this is against the rules) check out -swappa.com- they sell there for REAL value not ebay inflated value.

    just got a chinese 'star note s9500' it's an unlocked samsung galaxy s4 clone. about a third of the price. order to delivery was about 2 weeks, customs did not charge duty either.

    android 4.2
    basicly same spec as the samsung. got a 16gb micro-sd for it too. wifi, bluetooth, gps, quad cpu, dual simm, 12 mp camera, came with spare battery.

    was fun at 1st as it booted into a pure chinese gui. finally figured out how to set it to english & all is OK now.

    interfaces with my pebble smart watch via bluetooth. browses internet thru my pc's router wireless. uses my tesco pay-as-you-go simm.

    I would be tempted to buy one for myself if it were not for the following two negatives:

    1. No micro SD card slot.
    2. Battery is non-removable.

    I am currently leaning towards geting an unlocked AT&T Samsung Galaxy Note i717 LTE. With a case and screen protector, it currently costs around $300.
