After paying $55 to get it checked it is Beyond Economic Repair owing to water ingress through the volume button! Needless to say that the Samsung is now off my list of reliable phones although I will try Consumer Affairs to see if they consider it Not Fit for Purpose. My wife is also driving me nuts whittering on about her "reliable iPhone"...knowing I will NEVER buy an iPhone as I hate the locked down policy of Apple.Its only Android for me.
I'm thinking of going back to HTC after my excellent 1st gen Desire which I just passed on to my son.
I have an insurance claim in and I am now in the market for a replacement with a ceiling of $1k. If I exclude Samsung and Apple what others should I consider along with HTC. I quite fancy the Sensation XE but I don't know if that is the model that Telecom advertise as just the HTC Sensation
