I was really keen on either a BB10 or a Win8 phone.

I reckoned that as they were desperate to get back market share the phones would be sold for a reasonable price (I only ever buy SIM free).
Oh boy I was wrong. Way too expensive for two firms that are needing a market share boost. They needed to go in at least a third lower than they did.
Me? I ended up with a Nexus 4 and I don't regret it.
Though the camera on that 920 does make me a bit jealous.
