That time has come for me with new phone, currently on sim only contract but can come out of it with upgrade.
Current phone is old iPhone 5s, the phone has never missed a beat since the first time it was switched on. At the moment im considering “iPhone X” i have always been an iPhone user because i bought an android phone many of years ago and it was slow and could not take to it. Im sure things have come a long way from them days but little or no experience of android phones in 10 years.

So basically looking “iphone X” or top spec android phone. IPhones really do hold there money when contract is up to sell on then onto next upgrade.
Advise from those with “iPhone X” would help and especially those with top spec android phones as im really in the loop with android.
Must have: 4K recording. Powerful camera. Screen size around “5.6/5.8” inch.
(budget £700/£1000)
Will be on contract.

Thanks river.

I've got the X, and it's a great phone, especially like the function of using my face to open it. I've also heard great things about the Pixel, and the P1, but I cannot stand android, or use it.

If you can wait, you can likely get the newer version of the X, the XI or whatever it's going to be called.

Yes @janobi thats what i fear about going with android OS.
(not taking to it)
Done a bit of reading up there on the newer iPhone think i might just go for iPhone X.

Little or no feed back on this forum nowadays. I did put up similar post on another forum and got loads of advise there, something similar to what you said.
(how DW is going down tubes)

Thanks @janobi

Hello Guys

i made the switch to Android and i was like the both of you thinking i might not like it or take to it after years of Apple but i can safely say it works great and lets you do all the stuff Apple restrict and better still their cables and chargers are far cheaper.
Apple are good but restrict apps and stuff you can do on their system and the cables and accessories are too expensive....

hope this helps..

Android all the way for me, but each to their own. Just got the Huawei P30 Pro after having a sammy s8 and have to say im very impressed with the speed of it. 40mp camera but I will never do that justice. I didnt like the stock camera app again personal choice and im testing others now. But its a cracking phone IMO , John just got one also @Rat so he will have an opinion also

Android phones do allow more customisation, especially if you root them. I literally use my X for texting, and looking at porn. Sometimes at the same time :) I used to be straight on the new phones as soon as they come out, but there seems to be little innovation in the market now, that we need a new killer phone/feature to spur the market on again.

Also IMO Apple products are more secure than android ones. Argument could be made the other way as well, but for me personally it's the iPhone over the Android.

Tbh iv'e found no reason to replace my Sammy S8+ It does all I want and need, over 2 yr old and still holds a good charge, and for once its a phone that has survived the many drops I have delivered to it lol. When I think about it I have saved more than 2k by not upgrading like a mad teenager. I have had the opportunity to have a play around with a S10+ and feel no great loss at having the s8+,might just buy a Surface Pro with the savings,or a nice 4k telly...….

If your talking about swapping your 5s for an iphone x not really changing phone are you???

Iphone 5s that hasnt skipped a beat?? LOL.. i presume this is 2 year old.. there is no way, i dont believe it.. the battery must be shouting "change me, change me"

Sorry, I will slate all iphones.. they should all be collected and sent back to 1942 and used as cannon fodder..

I always wondered about that face scan on iPhone X.
Clearly if you scan kellys or adams face this will open phone. 😂

years ago i had the 4s and 5s they worked well but since i changed to android i realised how locked down they are. a friend bought an iphone 6 off his son but his son didnt clear all his shit off it so my friend was getting his facebook and instagram notifications and stuff so he ask me to sort it out. me like a dick reset it forgetting that the apple id would be needed. he only had it one day and i fucked it up lol. i palmed him off with a 4s and said i would get his iphone 6 sorted but i never could eventually it was all forgot about and i got away with having to replace that phone. happy days.

Simple answer is no. It works on your eyes, so they have to be open and looking at the device to unlock it.
