No deal on a Samsung Galaxy Note 4

Nearly bought a Note 4 today. I have a Note 3 and had a scratch to itch, but fortunately, none of the stores I visited in Telford could offer me a deal I found attractive. Actually, I’d prefer a Note 4 Edge, but they are even more expensive and I expect will not be well supported. Carphone Warehouse wanted £600 for an unlocked sim free Note 4. Phew!

Samsung SIII / Note 2 or Apple iPhone

I was on a forum, and there was a question about which was better. My view: amazing how many responses are just “XXX is better” without saying in what way.    Clearly, there are merits to each phone, and there is no overall objective “better” measure that can be applied.    I use the big brother to the SIII (The Samsung Galaxy Note II, and I used its predecessor).
