Help! My Upgrade is Here!

So, it’s come around again… Upgrade time! At first it seems like an exciting proposition, where I have the chance to get my mitts on a brand new handset, free of charge, which of course is true. But now I have the daunting task of choosing a new handset.

It’s definitely a dangerous minefield to traverse, on one hand I pick a phone right away, enjoy the novelty of having a brand new phone and then regret my decision when a better phone comes out, or I continue to wait, and get a new flagship phone on release day, at least extending that feeling when I get it.

To get things started, I currently work with the iPhone 4s with EE, and don’t get me wrong, it hasn’t been an issue over these 21 months or so, but I’m just plain bored of it now.

See, if I was to choose a handset right now, forced into it, I would most likely go for the Nokia Lumia 1020, which I fell in love with late last year.

If you don’t know about it, it features a 41 megapixel camera and runs on the Windows Operating system.

But should I really choose a phone which is now half a year old in itself? It certainly is a tricky choice for me, seeing as I may already be buying into an outdated handset right away.

Unfortunately I’m not a fan of Android, I’ve no real idea why, maybe it’s because I’ve been raised on iOS for the past two years, but for some reason I really don’t like the whole idea of Android.

This isn’t to say I don’t like the phones it runs on, during my time at MWC this February I loved the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S5 and LG G Pro 2, and I’m incredibly tempted by the latter handset by the way, it’s just the OS holding me back.

For me, I don’t like the whole Android fan-base slating Apple, and whilst Apple fans aren’t exactly innocent of doing the reverse, I just feel Android fans do it far more vocally, often making split second judgements on people simply because they have an iPhone, something that I think is completely unfair.

I mean, sure disagree with them, but don’t judge someone on their choice of mobile operating system; it’s just rude if you ask me.

Of course I’m talking about tech lovers out there, I’m not saying that every Android user out there hates all iPhone users under the sun; this is strictly dealing with those who take their choice in operating system extremely seriously.

But back to the task in hand, if I don’t opt to go to Android, or getting the Lumia 1020, what am I to do?

The obvious option is to wait for the next major flagship phone, which will most likely be the iPhone 6, and whilst this sounds like a great idea, it will likely cost me a Kidney each 31 days to pay for, and the question of OS comes right back in to the equation: Do I really want to stay on Apple?

So, I’m stuck between a rock, a hard place and then another rock, metaphorically of course…

…Any advice you might have would be appreciated…
