Samsung Galaxy S2
Advantages: great camera, listen to music, access to thousands of apps, excellent screen resolution
Disadvantages: bad battery life (like all smart phones)
I first bought the Samsung Galaxy S2 when it first came out. I purchased it as part of a monthly contract so in fact got the phone for free (over £450 value at the time).
I still use the phone to this day, and it is like walking around with a phone,laptop and quality camera all at the same time.
The phone is very lightweight for what it can do, and it is slight bigger than the iphone. I choose the s2 because at the time it was the best phone available.
Obviously the s2 is on the Google Andriod network, so when you want to download apps, you will get them from android marketplace (now called googleplay)
Just like the iphone you can download games,newspapers,books,horoscopes,alarm clocks and thousands more, some for free and some you have to pay for.
The camera it self is also a plus point. The quality is great, and once you take a photo you can upload straight to facebook,twitter and your email account.
It also has the facility to upload/download songs to the phone, although you may need to buy a etter memory card as the amount of songs can be limited.
The touch screen is very reliable and easy to use also.
The only downside to the phone, like all smart phones is that the average battery life is generally only 1 day, so you will need to remember to charge the phone every night.
I do understand that the Samsung Galaxy S3 is now available, but if you want to save money, the s2 will do everything you could ever want in a smart phone.
Summary: Awesome smart phone that can do everything an Ipod can
