Me too Phil, at the moment. I guess I'm reacting against the 'fanboy' image anything by Apple seems to suggest.
For example, when we take a lecture break, I notice the bulk of my students pull out their iPhone 4 or 5 and they look like clones of each other
For a start, I won't feel deprived if I don't have 'Angry Birds' on the 8x (whatever that might be) because most of the time at work my phone acts as a wifi hotspot, so the deal 3 have offered me again this year comes into account as well for my choice of phone.
Have you tried to get "all you can eat" data and even more difficult, free tethering recently?
The iPhone 4 is / was a perfectly usable phone but I've also always thought negatively of the way Apple try to control what you do with your phone and what goes on it etc. iTunes is a hateful encumbrance and imposition on my PC.
Linking with my (now) Windows 8 PCs is something I want to explore as well.
Maybe I'll get an iPhone 6 in due course
