Need Help Picking New Phone

So I get a message from the store i got my iphone 3 from saying i am eligible for a new FREE phone so i went in and had a look at some sony's the nokia N8 and acouple of other "smart" phones and couldnt decide, so having read the iphone v andriod operating system thread and not understood 80% of it decided to make this one to see what suggestions you guys have and so i can make a better decision.

Ok so 1st off i dont want the iphone 4 i have an iphone and am not obbsessed with it so i dont see the point going to the next version, especially because mine is working just fine and i can do the same things on it, oh and i dont want it beause EVERY1 has one

the features i want/need on the phone are:

-fast clear internet that appears on the phone screen as it does on a actual computer
-be able to watch videos on the net(youtube)
-touch screen/ big screen
-good camera
-games/apps must be able to dwnld apps
-video record
-ability to have ur own custom ring tone/message tone
-radio would be nice
-music player dsnt need to be iphone quality coz i barely use it but just enough so as something to listen to when bored
-standard features, voice call, sms, mms, email and that sort of stuff

i think thats it i'll add more if i think of any

I had a iPhone 3G, was sick of it and got a samsung hd icon (over a year ago) let's just say that nothing has the same app support as the osx.
Looking at the N8 vs a galaxy (symbian^3 vs android) the operating system wise n8 is nokia so it has some sort of backing, but the galaxy is much better. Also my friends have both a n8 and a galaxy and playing with both, galaxy is better.. N8 has 12pm camera, but the lens is so small all the pics are blurry.. Galaxy is again better.. Galaxy is faster on the net to
This was in regards to the galaxy s from android phones since I believe it is the best thing at the moment.
What I did? After a year on symbian with samsung hd (which had a 8mp camera btw) I got SO sick of the lack of apps I got so accustomed to and just got a iphone4. The lack of apps drove away from every phone and back to the iPhone really that was the main reason. Yeah ok everyone has one (granted I did get one on the 1st day lol, that's how much I missed osx). The camera is 5mp but honestly I take clearer photos than my friends n8 and it's the only phone I have seen that can do bracketing and merging (hdr), I'm in to photography a bit sorry if that doesn't make sense. The difference between it and the 3GS is the speed, screen resolution and camera really. Screen resolution is huge, so you can't really see pixels.
I hope this helps man. All the phones with android would be the same if not similar in performance. My friend got the n8 over iPhone only cus he is Finnish.. Lol and he didn't think he wants to have a phone and iPod in one so he bought a iPod 2 (iPhone is one of the best phone when it comes to transferring and playing music)

i got the samsung galaxy s (vibrant) and the tmobile 3g internet is fast, you can watch any video frm youtube under 12 secs, good camera (no flash though) with good video and sound, fast response (1ghz processor) and it has the swype feature where you can text by scribling through the touchscreen keyboard.. the only con for me which is true to all hightech smartphone is the battery life but overall im very satisfied. paying $80 a month unlimited everything except minutes (i took the lowest minutes plan because i mainly use this for entertainment and text)

hope that helps

You can get a droid incredible but they got shity games, if your a gamer the iphone has tons of online games you can play with other people. Like modern combat sandstorm or the new modern combat 2 black pegasus, NOVA and element pro. You can race with other people on reckless & real racing, we have flash now thanks to 3rd party skyfire. Video talk with 3g data by tango, download movies direct to your iphone by the app download pro.

I would wait for the next release, possibly iPhone 5 4G LTE (for those in the US).
