I need a new Phone! Please help me to decide

This morning i dropped my phone twice, I’m currently using a Samsung Wave II. 

Ohh well I love this phone because it is unique from other common Android/IPhone/Blackberry Phones however I think I need to get a new one since I have a big issue with the screen and the capacity of its memory. 

I’m looking for a new phone and I need you opinion on which phone should I get. Here are the following phones that catch my attention while browsing GSMArena.com 

1.)    Samsung I9300 GalaxyS III


It runs with Ice Cream Sandwich Adroid OS and with the latest TouchWiz from Samsung, it also has the new Siri Competitor “S-Voice”, eye-tracking (Smart Stay) and several other clever tricks, which the smartphone has up its sleeves.

The Samsung Galaxy S III features an 8MP camera with burst shot mode, which lets you take 3.3 shots per second. The phone also tracks people’s faces and can automatically pick the best one of the several photos taken in quick succession.

Well Samsung never fails to impress me in bringing new ideas on their mobile phones.

2.) Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc S

 4.) LG Optimus TrueHD LTE P936

I haven’t tried using any LG Phones, but my friends told me that it has a good quality just like Samsung. This phone has a True HD-IPSLCD capacitive touchscreen just likeHTCPhones plus the fact that LG phones are cheaper than other brands. My only problem with this phone is that it doesn’t have a radio. 😛 hehehehe

5.)    Nokia Lumia 800


This is the last phone on my list. Nokia new Windows Phone (Which is a new OS for me), it has a scratch free Gorilla glass(Just like my Wave 2), 8 megapixel autofocus camera with dual LED flash, 720p@27fps video recording and fast f/2.2 lens (Which I really love with Nokia Phones since I’m into Mobile Photography).

Main disadvantages of this phone are the following:

-No Flash support for browsing

– NoUSBmass storage (file management and sync pass only through Zune)

– No video calls and no front-facing camera either

– No native DivX/XviD support, videos have to be transcoded by Zune

The phone is great, however I have some issues in terms of file sharing just like Iphone with Itunes. This phone is powered by Windows but the file management is with Zune(which is not popular here inManila).

These are the top 5 phones on my list. Can you help me to choose the right phone for me? Please participate on the poll below. **Cheers** have a great week
