Most smartphones have shitty battery life for what it's worth. Not that bad, but pretty bad. My nexus lasts about 40 hours if I just use it sparingly. If I'm texting a lot, or playing a game (anything that uses the screen) it will usually die within 12 hours....

There's really not an easy way to get out of your contract to get a new phone. Depending on who you have the early termination fee might be manageable, but you're still probably looking at about 400 dollars (after you buy the new phone under a new two year agreement)....I'm just going to wait mine out. By the time I'm eligible for new hardware in Oct '13, Samsung should have the SIV out, or even have the SV coming soon....

buy a used one. seriously. i buy most of my phones on craigslist... Buy something 1 generation old, people are looking to offload them for about half price (or less,) don't have to worry about signing a new contract... You get one from somebody who's taken care of it... you're good to go.


love the iphones for their battery... my phone 4 is 2 years old and still holds a charge for two days of regular use.

The Lumia 920 is pretty incredible. I love it.

Read the industry reviews and then read customer reviews.

Pros: Nice sized screen, fast, never crashes, excellent battery life, excellent integration with social media, email, etc, & the best camera on the market (especially in low light conditions).

Cons: It's a little heavy.


another con is that pointy corners blister your hands. S3 is by far the best phone to come out

The guy at the phone store today was really tryna sell me a razr m. It seems like a good phone but I'm just not sure. The 1st smart phone that I had was an iPhone 3G and I liked it ok, went through 2 screens (dust between glass) and the top button went out on the 1st one. Bought a second and my son still uses it for an iPod.

Now I have the iPhone 4 and have really no complaints. It bugs me that I can't add storage. Maybe just the usual complaints of being stuck with iTunes and the App Store.

I guess I really don't know enough about android to make an informed decision. I'd love to try a galaxy note 2 or a GS3 but don't want to spend the money on them. I can get the razr m for $50. After research tho, there's a razr HD and a razr max that look better than the micro, but for what those cost I could just get a damn iPhone 5.

Dunno

Did you have problems with the Motorolas or just not what you liked?
