    I used to hate Apple I-phones as I thought they were a wankers toy but now after having one for work I'm 100% converted.

    Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience.

    I've had an iPhone for a very long time and they're awesome, but expensive. A friend who is tech savvy spent a lot of time researching Chinese phones on Aliexpress and ended up with an iPhone clone for about a quarter of the price. It even looks like an iPhone, but it runs the Android OS very well. It is fast. I will definitely take a look next time round.

    I've had a couple of higher end Sonys (Z3 compact and Z4), really nice phones to use and nice that they're waterproof but they haven't been that reliable for me, screen problems with both of them. Older lower model Sony I had before that was reliable though. Just got a cheap Ulefone from aliexpress to try something different.

    I'd also recommend avoiding dodgy trademe parallel importers, I bough the Z4 through an outfit called UDSmart who seemed legit enough advertising NZ warranty and service centres etc... lying cheating ripoff artists.

    due to political correctness there are no more wankers, the correct term is "owner operator"

    I have an S5 and its great. Has a good camera. Biggest bonus is you can actually change the battery yourself when its rooted so you dont have to buy a new phone every 2 years

    I brought a S5 second hand some time ago still going sweet does every I need and have no problems and being able to change the battery is a good thing as some of these new ones you can not, just another money making scheme

    Newer version (I think) of what I commented on earlier. Don't buy it off them though. Go direct to Aliexpress and save yourself the "bullshit fee".
    Overkill is still dead.
