Nothing at apple will be the same after Steve Jobbbbbs signed off .. The R&D budget has been cut .. theres no ground breaking innovation anymore .. all the stuff on the new fone and ios has been done by others in one way shape or form .. fingerprint recognition ? ...been around for 10 years .. ok so first for a phone , but not for a lap top or keyboard .. like I said nothing new .. think the O.P. was right on reflection

Still a better O/s than anyone else by a good margin .. but that margin is thinning ........ fast

Been playing around on it tonight. Like that notifications go to the home screen and pressing on em takes you straight in. The control panel from the bottom and view from the top with a two finger swipe is good too

The fonts aren't some of em are terrible.

Best thing about apple basically for me tho is it works and it's intuitive just like Nokia used to be. There's too much out there that you buy that doesn't work cos it was never tested properly

I have an Iphone 3 that came free with my O2 contract a few years ago that I use to make & receive calls and texts plus take a few photos when I'm salmon fishing as I forget to take my camera....
My wife has a Iphone 4 that she constantly plays candycrush/scrabble on that also does the calls/text thing and most importantly only requires me to hand over my laptop occasionally as it's like a mini computer !!
Why update ??

I'm following this thread with interest. I'm something of a Luddite and until 2010, had stuck with a basic mobile. I was given a Samsung Galaxy S then and for a few years, got to like it, then got to love it. Not that I was comparing it to anything else, but I did like the camera, which was very good (in class, then). It got loaded with maps and charts and images and I didn't think of changing.

Then, along came Mr Vodafone and gave me a free iPhone 4. Hmmmm. I ignored it for around six months and finally succumbed to temptation - oops! Gotta say, I'm finding the Apple straight jacket a touch snug for me. I can't quite put my finger on it, but I'm fiercely independent and stubborn (wile thrawn, hi) and I think I just resent Apple telling me what's best for me and what I can and can't do - generally only Mrs willk and JK get to do this!

To make matters worse, after a recent network switch, I've been handed an iPhone 5 and a Galaxy S4. I have to decide on Monday with one will become the willkphone for the next couple of years. I think I'm going Galaxy...

Yep, i know EXACTLY what you mean... In a way i resent myself for allowing Apple to slowly bully me into being loyal to them and for that reason i'm very seriously considering the Experia. I like the IP57 rating also which for someone like me who spends most of his life around water and boats, could be quite beneficial.

I found quite a few online programs that will convert Buytunes songs and make them Android compatible ( MP3 format i suppose?)

Finally, considering I'm now 40, the larger screen of the Experia will probably save me hundreds just in replacement spectacles along! :-).

Afaik, iTunes will convert AAC to mp3. I keep all my tunes as mp3s anyway, there's an option somewhere in iTunes to keep the mp3 format.
