    There's only 5.

    Those bloody austerity measures are hitting everything in the UK ;)

    Huh. I just figured it was 10 in the metric system or something. Crazy UKers. :)

    Not entirely sure about the Monte Carlo (ZTE Skate) being on the list. Galaxy S II deserves its place in the list IMO. :)

    Yeah, the Orange Mote Carlo is £120 with no monthly payments required after that. iPhone 4S is £499 - almost 5x the price.

    Yeah, we all knew you'd disagree. In other news the sky is blue and not everybody thinks Apple is constantly at the forefront of technology. But I'll let you continue to claim that anyone's opinion that is not pro-Apple is anecdotal anyway.

    Wow, I wish we had something like that here. My carrier has prepaid phones and plans, but none of them are any good.
