    Hi, i Have a 32gb iPhone 4 thats nearly 2 years old and I'm having problems with call quality and volume. My contract is coming to an end soon and I'm just looking to go payg. Carphonewarehouse are offering £250 for my model of iPhone as a trade in and I'm swithering between buying either the one-v or one-s simfree. Im Quite liking the idea of the one-v's screen size and it's also £120 cheaper than the one-s. I also can't help feeling im missing out a bit by not getting the bigger screen and better specs. So long as the phone I have has similar specs to my iPhone then I will be quite happy. Anybody any recommendations?

    Just got my mrs the One S and im blown away by it, battery life is very good the mrs can get about 36hrs out of it on normal use. The camera is exceptional near instant boot up time when you press the camera icon and the continuous picture taking if you keep your finger pressed on the shutter button so you can pick the best shot.

    The phone is really fast as well and the beats audio makes it sound fantastic aswell.

    Iphone 4 to one s is a step up, iphone 4 to one v would be a step down in my opinion.

    Hope this helps

    Deff go for the S. I know benchmarks aren't everything but S gives you a device not far off the flagship devices in real world use.
    V comes over as a poor choice spec wise Plenty of other phones in V price point rep better value. My wifes Samsung Gal' S has similar specs and I bought that sim free last year for similar money.

    Cheers, i Will look into it. Not really keen on spending £350 on a phone and since I don't want a contract that seems to be what I would need to do. Can get the Nokia lumia 710 for £99 payg at the moment and although it's no iPhone or flagship htc it seems a bargain for that amount. Will need to have a play about with a few phones in a shop before I decide

    The 710 is very good value for money. Represents v good value at less than 100 quid. (Have one myself and now that CPW have them back in stock my nice will buying one too). Really do need to go to a store and play though. I personally think the win phone OS is prob better for a lot of regular users than android and is my phone OS of choice, but you may not . As for it not being an Iphone I do enjoy poking my apple fanboy son with the fact that for a quarter of the money I got a phone, which in a lot of ways equals,(or betters ) his iphone 4 :)

    You shouldn't be ignoring getting a contract. PAYG is an expensive way to buy any phone except the iPhone. I did a quick search on the 710 and found an 18 month contract for £85 in total.
    Phones4u and dialaphone have/had some great 12 month deals on the one s and x that work out cheaper than the PAYG price of the phone.
    There is currently htc one s for under £280 at dialaphone with a useable 12 month contract.
