Previously used an iphone 3G and recently sold it so I'm waiting for the Samsung Galaxy S II to be released in NZ but unsure of the prices. Hence now I'm in need of a temporary 2nd hand phone. I've been doing some research and broke down the prices for the following phones:

$500-$550 = iphone 3gs
$550-$600 = Samsung galaxy S or HTC desire HD
$800 = iphone 4, Kinda hard to find one for $800 but there are a few selling at that price

What do you guys recommend? Don't really mind Android or iOS but iOS seems dull to be honest..

Add the IDEOS X5, from 2degrees on that list in the midrange... Very good handset for their price.

Yeah, new 2degrees phone: Ideos X5 at $549 looks pretty sweet for the price.

Huawei are the second-largest supplier of mobile telecommunications infrastructure equipment in the world (after Ericsson). They have been around for a long time, they may be new to handsets in NZ and the US for that matter but they have been making them for quite some time.. I personally plan on getting an Ideos X5 in the comming weeks.

Have you looked at Windows Phone 7 ... with Xbox Live, Zune Music, Live Tiles, People hub with Facebook integration, HD Video, etc? Full RRP for HTC Trophy is $899 but a few on Trademe and various other options such as Samsung Focus and HTC HD7 available online.

I have the Vodafone 845 - now commandeered by my wife who was before that a technophobe - and the X5. They are both superb from a manufacturing point of view. The X5 is a great deal.
