Do you know anyone wanting a mid-range phone?

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress and IFA.

    The good ol’ GSII isn’t so different.

    I think I’d rather wait for the HTC One M4. Need to upgrade my wife’s phone and after playing around with my HTC One M7, I think the M4 will do her just nicely. Question is, now that Samsung have confirmed their GS4 Mini, how long will HTC wait before announcing the M4. And this is HTC’s biggest problem. They simply are not proactive enough. By the time they announce the M4, most people waiting for a mid-range phone will have jumped onto the Mini. Poor strategy for mine and explains why HTC are struggling.
