I'm finally moving from iOS to another platform after 4-5 years of "loyalty". I quote "loyalty" because I've used Android extensively over the past few months and I'm ready to move. I'm looking for Android/Windows Phones I can get for under $700. An unlocked phone (right out of the box) I would like to have but it's not needed. I don't want people to think this is another look this up for me type of questions, I do need some sort of help here. I would also like it to be GSM, as that is what I use everywhere, whether it be here in America or in the Dominican Republic or England, GSM is a must.

I was looking at either the HTC Sensation: http://goo.gl/svsgE

The Nokia Lumia 900: http://goo.gl/YzYNa

or the Samsung Galaxy S III: http://goo.gl/xbgEv

Which should I pick, or what do you recommend? I'll take any requests!

Updated price from 500 to 700, as the Galaxy and Lumia are higher than 500.

Personally I like the Nokia Lumia 900. I like the Windows Phone interface and it is a very good phone with the camera and the build quality. However, if you want a Android phone the one I would recommend is the Galaxy S III. I haven't used it but have heard good things about it online.

I might go with the 900, but IDK if T-Mobile supports 3G on it.

I don't know why they wouldn't. 3G is just a standard. If T-Mobile emit the signal the phone will be able to use it.

No, I know but like my iPhone can recieve 3G yet T-Mobile isn't broadcasting on th 1900mhz spectrum, so all I get is Edge.

I'm an HTC user and the Sensation is a very nice phone, it's quick, due to it's dual core CPU, and I think it can be upgraded to ICS now.

HTC have a much better build quality than Samsung phones, they feel so much less plasticy, and from experience, HTC screens are much stronger.

Some of my friends have Sensations and they say it's fantastic! I heard Cyanogenmod is really smooth with ICS.

I own a Lumia 800, but that phone isn't released in the US. From what I've seen the 900 and 800 are very similar, so I would suggest the lumia 900. Keep in mind that Windows Phone and Android are completely different, though. You need to be sure that the phone fits what you want. I use a few of google product and there is not a lot of support for those products on Windows phone. So, if you're depended on Google, you might want to think twice about Windows Phone. Other than that I would suggest the Lumia 900.

Hmm, I might consider that 800, but the 900 looks so, sexy (for a lack of words), lmao.
