You could get an iPhone from Apple, John Lewis etc. Unlocked and sim free.

You get the updates from Apple and there is no carrier bloat.

Yes, I know this is heresy but the poster asked a question...

There are some Android equivalents that others will be sure to mention.

don't buy your phone from a carrier. go for SIM Only deals on say a 1 month rolling contract. Then when the carrier pisses you off, you can move to another without the unlocking hassle.
