Top Ten Android Games?

The Guardian games blog has a post listing some of the essential Android games users should play. My current mobile contract expires in about 2 weeks time so I’m looking at my options and it’s likely that I’ll buy an Android phone.

Three have the iPhone 4 at a reasonable price but it’s Three and I’ve heard lots of bad things about them.

What would you choose?

It’s got to be the iPhone 4 all the way. It is leaps and bounds ahead of every other phone. I was looking at the contracts over your side and they are expensive. I paid £90 for the phone and then £45 a month which includes 1000 mins, 750mb download and unlimited wifi. I have heard 3 is rubbish with the network coverage but you have O2 over there and here is the page

They are out of stock but should have some soon. A friend in work has a HTC which is ok and my girlfriend had a new Sony X10 and sent it back because it was rubbish. The big difference in the phones is not the OS systems but I think the screens. The screen on the iPhone is unbelievable. It is very clearer and crisp and the touch sentiviative is perfect. You can type very fast and always hit the right button but on the Sony or HTC I was makin mistake often and that was the main reason my girlfriend sent the Sony back, the screen was crap.
The iPhone will cost you alot more but you are getting alot more phone for the money.
Another thing with getting and smart phone is you will always be on the bloody thing. I get told regalur to switch the phone off in bed and work.
They are great and recommend getting one but has to be a iPhone 4 not the 3GS.

I’m afraid O2 are out for me, there’s a coverage blackspot in my house. My wife is with them and has to go outside to make a phone call! (She likes the online text messaging site, can’t figure out any other reason for her staying with them!)

I may try to unlock my Nokia 5800 when the contract expires and get a Three pay as you go SIM card. Here’s a positive post about Three but suggests using a SIM to test the waters before committing. They do have the best deal on iPhone prices and subs though.

Some of the Android phones are really attractive. I’ve read reviews of many of them and I’m tempted. Got two weeks to decide anyway 🙂

From what I’ve seen of Three I’ll be steering clear of them. Meteor Ireland have various Android phones including the HTC Desire and Samsung Galaxy S. The Desire is sold out but Galaxy S can be bought. Most people who gave an opinion said there’s not much between them but that the Desire has better support and community around it, and that Samsung were crap at supporting their phones.

I discovered I’m eligible for an upgrade today. Good thing my wife has the car!
