PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless They're here! Whether that excites you or not remains to be seen, but the Galaxy S4, which will most likely become the best selling Android smartphone of the year by a huge margin, has been reviewed by all the major sites, and there's lots of interesting conclusions in there - although I think most of you will get the gist.

I have an S3 which I got on day of release and love it!

My choice was simple, I refuse to use anything manufactured by Apple (cue the fanboys having a go no doubt), purely because I refuse to be a sheep and get an iPhone 'because everyone else has one so it has to be good', I don't do such crap as anyone with half a brain shouldn't.

I certainly didn't want a Blackberry as having had a Storm when they first came out (which was a good phone) I upgraded to a Torch and had nothing but trouble with effectively all 3 torches I had (it was replaced twice under warranty within 18 months), which realistically left me with Android. (don't even try and sell me Windows phone, windows is for the desktop and laptop, not in your pocket!)

The S2 had great reviews and Vodafone were offering the S3 free for upgrade, so I went for it. It's a great phone, yes it has it's moments but so do all phones which are on 24/7 and rebooted when it is absolutely necessary. I have kept it up to date with the latest firmware via Kies (Ok, as software goes Kies sucks bigtime) and OTA updates, never had any trouble with it. I'd upgrade to an S4 except my contract has another 6 months to run, the S5 will be due out by then with a bit of luck!
