i had the original HTC one i think with the stylus, it was awesome, you could actually get into "program files" on a phone! and it had external storage!, TBH if it was just a phone i would probably still be "non apple"
but then "antivirus happened"!,
i spent years! literally years! waiting for the poxy thing to update or refresh or search my computer or generally f*ck up my day, and then i heard apple didn't have that problem. i was sceptical so i tested it first, its true! "the apple experience" is really quite pleasant. you can't mess with as much as you might want but day 2 day its very nice to use

Best thing about it, it fits in my pocket. Battery lasts days, but then I have no friends.
I was offered a free upgrade, but it was one of 3 Windows rubbish. My old lodger had one and it was really dreadful.
I may get a new battery for this one when it dies.
I think I am one of the few people that has never lost or broken a phone, had the same number for nearly 20 years too. Bargain for 8 quid a month.

I suppose you go with whatever suits your work and/or lifestyle.
(Oh, and pocket.)

Trouble with that is that by then, there will be a new phone out that will promise even more.

One of the first things I did when I got my Sony tablet was to root it, then delete the Sony firmware and install the "clean" Cyanogenmod android build instead. Massively better in almost every respect, with no very annoying (and expensive and slow) constant background "updating" by Google (which is a complete pain when you only have a very slow and costly GSM data connection). It's worked fine for a year, with me doing a couple of updates. Battery life improved by around 30%, too, and the whole tablet was snappier and much easier to use.
Sadly, last week, someone who shall remain nameless, decided to load Google Maps on to it. This caused Google Services to also be loaded, and yesterday the battery went flat. I checked the stats (the open source Cynaogenmod version of Android has a neat widget that tells you which apps are using power, data etc) and found that 25% of the battery had been consumed over two days with the tablet off by Google Services, together with about 6% of my data allowance. This is when the damned thing was just sitting in the glove box of my car, and hadn't been used since I last charged it on Monday. Clearly the things has been sending data, at my expense, back to Google, or doing something with Google that's caused it to use power and data.
I'm now going to wipe it again and re-install Cyanogenmod and lock the thing from loading any apps from Google (easy to do in Cyanogenmod). There's a decent open source mapping app that I can load to replace the Google Maps app, and by getting rid of Google Services I'll get back control of when things power on and be able to get the improved battery life back.
It's incidents like this that really annoy me. I'm sure buried in the depths of whatever licence Google get you to agree to there is the right for them to turn on your device and transfer data at your expense, but I prefer to have things under my control, not theirs. Thankfully, the Cyanogenmod community are exceptionally good at walking the fine line between keeping it open source (which means excluding Google code) and yet working with Google on the core changes to the open source Android kernel. They do clearly warn that Google services cannot be used without agreeing to Google's Ts and Cs, and also that as soon as you do load anything from Google your device will get "taken over" again, which is why, by default, this open source version has no Google features, branding etc, until you load the Play Store app and download an app from there. If you stick to sideloading (from known sources) and stay away from the Play Store, you can avoid a lot of hassle, it seems.
