I refuse to get an iAnything. I am not one of those people. I would like an Android and I have had Samsung phones for the past few years and they seem really easy to use. I don't like the virtual keyboard that seems to be all the rage now, but I guess that is something I am going to have to live with. The one app I would want is QR Code reader. I have had AT&T for about 12 years and am very happy with their service. Probably the only one.

Keeping all that in mind, what would be a good phone for me?

Do you have budget limitation? If you don't, Samsung Galaxy S III is a no-brainer choice  .

You said Android with Samsung but I tried out a HTC Titan with Windows on it last week while talking about getting my iPhone fixed and loved it, much better than the Lumia sitting next to it and easier to use than Androids. LTE enabled for superfast browsing with a solid camera, not as big as the flagship Samsungs which for many people is a bonus, it doesn't have all the fancy features the Galaxy SIII has either but for many they're largely superfluous, much like Siri... Windows phone also has fantastic integration with Facebook and Twitter if you use those.

You don't seem like a massive tech head so Windows phone would probably be good for you, its middle ground between dumbed down iOS and hardcore Androids. A wide selection of apps probably isn't really a major priority, you just want a phone that does the simple stuff really well.

No. I had a Samsung touch screen but the touch screen went out. They offered me an Evergreen that had massive software issues and used insurance from that to get a different Samsung that has been working and they cancelled insurance, because I used insurance too much in too little time.

Yeah. I do have budget limitations. I don't really like the feel/size of the Galaxy S anyway.

I have used Android before and it seems very simple. I am one of those people who uses something once and anything else is complicated. Which explains why I am using Windows 7 on my PC...

Look at the apps you used on the old phone and go from there. If you have little financial investments in apps then look at what is available. If you have money, or want to maintain those apps then go with what ATT has in stock. Samsung is the leading maker (ahead of the iPhone) and they should have at least one model you like.

If, however, you don't want hi tech you can check out the older iPhones that are cheap.

If you're going from one Android phone to another, when you sign into your Google account on the new phone it automatically imports contacts and downloads all the apps that were on the previous phone.

You're suffering from a misunderstanding there. People usually end up with an iOS device simply because they find that it works well for them. There actually aren't any membership cards to a "those people" club.

If an iPhone works best for you, get that one. If an Android, Windows or another kind of phone works best for you, get that.

You'll live with the device for quite a while and either initially or through your contract you'll be paying quite a bit of money for a good one, so making a decision on prejudices and ideology will only hurt yourself.

If you plan to use the device for a longer time, you should also consider each model's long-term manufacturer support.

Be self-interested in your decision. Simply get what works for you.

Having had a Samsung Galaxy for about 2 years I have to say the hardware is excellent. It has done everything I could reasonably expect it to and I have never owned a phone as long as I've had my Galaxy. The Android software and all the apps that go along with it do update quite often which can end up leaving your brand new technologically advanced phone lagging in the dust after a few months. One other major issue with Android is all the quirky issues that pop up from time to time. The Galaxy is by no means an arcane unsupported platform but I have had multiple problems including wifi working one day and just not working for days after for no reason (all my friends with iPhones had no problems), and an alarm that would begin to ring for no reason for hours, that could not be stopped. I had to take the battery out. This is just my experience, but after my contract renews I am definitely going to go with Apple's latest offering - it seems to just work.

Sounds like a BlackBerry would work well for you. I despise virtual keyboards as well and that's one reason I'll never consider using an iPhone or Galaxy.

Also, if you happen to lose your phone again, you can use BlackBerry Protect to track it down.

I've heard nothing but great things about the Galaxy SIII and the HTC One X. Based on what you're saying about budget, the One X seems to be your best bet. Unfortunately, physical QWERTY keyboards are on the outs. I'm a Sprint user so I tend to follow their development pipeline closer, but offhand I only know of one knew QWERTY smartphone coming down the pike, the Motorola Photon Q. I'm not sure if there's going to be an AT&T version of that and your needs seem pretty immediate, so yeah, One X. Linked are a few relevant reviews:

Unless you're dead set on Android, go with the Nokia Lumia 900 or HTC Titan 2. Aside from both being just really well made phones on the hardware side, if your one must-have app is a QR reader, Windows Phone has that built in natively and it works better than any other QR reader I've tried on any other phone. Samsung also offers a couple models on AT&T, the Focus 2, Focus S (which is almost identical to the GS2), and the Focus Flash but I greatly prefer Nokia and HTCs offerings.

Samsung Galaxy III or HTC One X
Similar specs, just pick the one you like better for general feel.
Both have Android 4.x (aka Ice Cream Sandwich), great displays, LTE/4G (In North America anyways), 8mp camera, etc etc etc...

I got the One X myself, love it, only picked it over the Galaxy because it felt better in my hand.

If you go with either, get a screen protector though, those big touch screens aren't worth risking a scratch!

Nonsense. I have absolutely always proposed that one should ignore prejudices against people and above all to go for what oneself needs or prefers.

Stereotypical ideas about the users of certain products are pointless in every direction.

You'll only hurt yourself if you don't look for what you like but what you think others like or don't like.

If you like a product, use it. It's your money and your phone for quite a while, so get one that you really like to use. Ignore other people. This is about you. Get the best product for yourself.

It can well be that you end up with something else than an iPhone. If that's actually best for you, then by all means do it. Just don't let others decide for you, in neither direction.

I've stuck with the Nexus line of Android phones. They are "blessed by Google", so to speak, and get OS upgrades a lot longer than skinned versions of Android you'll find on other Android phones. While the hardware isn't as great as the newest phones on the market, most of the functionality in Android is provided by OS updates, and you'll be getting new OS updates for a long time on the Google blessed phone.

You can buy a Galaxy Nexus for $350 off of Google Play, and you're not tied to a contract with AT&T then. They aren't subsidizing the phone. I do this on tmobile and get a cheaper monthly rate for doing so - AT&T might have a similar offering.

Agreed that App World in it's current form is incredible limited, but you'll see that change with the release of BB10. The new platform is much more convenient for developers than OS7.

Not suggesting seb wait til January to get a BB10 tho if he needs one ASAP.

Untrue in RIM's case. The BlackBerry network (and it's support) is essentially "too big to fail".

If you see the company go under at some point, that's the first piece of the company that will get bought up and kept online. I'll bank that no matter what happens to RIM, that network won't be offline for a second.

Incorrect. His reason given for not wanting an iPhone had nothing to do with the merits of the product (which would have been perfectly valid, if it was an actual personal preference), but with not liking other people using these products.

And I have consistently and in all directions maintained that it is a very bad idea to saddle oneself with a product for the sole reason that someone else does or doesn't use the same kind of product.

Quoting garnetpalmetto (Reply 19):

He wasn't talking about the actual product, he was talking about other people using the product. And that is the worst possible motivation for making a relevant decision about buying or not buying a product – in either direction, and with any product.

You will find that I have always counseled against getting an iPhone just because some other people had one. Your view of my position on this is much narrower than my actual, real position is.

Both points are very relevant, as is the fact that iPhones at this point get upgrades for 3+ years through multiple major iOS versions, plus another year of bugfix support.

This might be irrelevant only if the devices were to be used only through a few months, or if there were no security threats emerging every now and then which needed bugfixed firmwares for protection.

This doesn't make the decision automatic, but it is an important aspect in my view, because quality smartphones cost serious money (even when we're paying much of it through our contracts), we generally use them through more than just a few months and many of us store or otherwise handle relevant personal data on them.

Well, here's another vote for the Galaxy SIII. I've had mine for around 3-4 weeks and couldn't be happier with the phone. I like the larger screen for web browsing and watching video, it's light and fits in your pocket well. The camera quality is amazing and I love the operating system as well. I found the qwerty keyboards seemed to add weight to the phone that I didn't want. With the larger screen on the SGS3 using the touch screen to type is very easy.

But, it may not be for you since you mentioned that you're not into the larger phone. There are some other good suggestions here.
