    The trap
    Im getting a new phone and been looking at the HTC one, htc one mini or the samsung galaxy s range. I dont want an iphone because I dont think you can download files or go into your own files but I could be wrong, I need this for IM reasons. I have a samsung tablet that does everything I need but I would prefer a change from samsung for my phone. Does anyone know which would be best or if there is any other phones?

    So when you say IM reasons what are they, be more specific? and what type of files are you trying to open with a phone?

    Sorry... downloading .txt files from skype, uploading and downloading from dropbox. Having a download folder where they all go into and preferably an easy copy & paste. I have an ipod that cant do any of this and I dont have a smartphone so I dont know what can do what

    There is a ton of info online about rooting Iphones aka "jailbreaking" your Iphone which will give you complete control over it.

    I would go with any Android, but Personally i would get a Samsung s3 or a Samsung s4.
    It can download, can make a own folder for all your IM stuff.
    The iPhone can also do that but its VERY complicated.

    1. Samsung S3
    2. Samsung S4
    if you have money go for a S5 but I have one and its too big.

    I wouldn't prefer samsung in android from my personal experiences i would prefer htc or nexus in android you can open text files and save it in dropbox and open it in iphone too and that will be the best option!!

    Yea, if you have an iPod, you don't need another iPhone. Exactly the same thing.

    Go with the Nexus 5. Probably the fastest smartphone and its only $350 for 16GB. Really awesome phone and it feels premium too. I hate those plasticy galaxies.

    I work for a telecommunications company that has contracts with AT&T and I test phones everyday. Let me tell you, your best bet is Samsung galaxy ( any version) HTC phones always have issues. They heat up or have performance issues, sometimes calls don't go through and have poor network as compared to Samsung. IPhone used to be a good choice but it's just so much more finicky and limited as compared to Android which is much more user friendly. If you are looking for a stable phone with good battery time then go for note 3. If not that then galaxy s4 or s5. Good luck

    i suggest you to buy galaxy note 2/3
    the best ones for IM purpose

    why?
    better battery
    big screen
    fast multitasking
    good storage

    and one more thing, dropbox will give you 50gb storage for free
