What's up guys- I currently have a Samsung Galaxy SII, but am due for an upgrade. I like it, and am not entirely picky about my phone. What phones do you guys suggest?

Should I wait for the new iPhone to come out?

Go with the Galaxy S4?

or something else entirely?

Just went phone shopping recently.

 

I had the 4s and upgraded to the 5. Did not see the 5s being worthy of waiting for since I had cracked the screen on the 4s.

 

My favorite non Iphone was the HTC One. The Notes look cool too but I don't want a phone that big. S4 was neat but not for me as much of its neat features I would never really use and when trying them in the store they were far from working perfect.

I've loved the S4 for the week I've had it. Taking pics in low level lighting seems to suck pretty bad though. I went for a morning walk to watch the sunrise today. The pics I took before the sun came out were awful even on the different modes.

SOJA did you ever decide on this?

 

I just realized that my wife is eligible for an upgrade in August... I may steal it from her and get me a new one...

 

 

Obviously the S4 would be in play, but the HTC One looks awesome and so does this Moto Droid Maxx that's coming out in August with a 48 hr battery life...

I decided to wait it out....my reasons are that nothing is wrong with my current phone, and the longer I wait- the more prices will drop and/or new things will come out. 

 

 

I haven't heard of the Moto Droid Maxx---I definitely might look into that, thanks for the heads up!

Yeah, I would wait longer too, but my Rezound has started acting like a bitch about half the time.  It's noticeably slower than it was and I've done all the requisite cleanup to it and it still bogs down.

 

 

Plus that Maxx with the 48 hr battery life would be pure awesome.

 

 

When is 5G coming out?  That's the only real thing worth waiting for, unless someone comes out with an AI phone, then it would probably take over the world and kill us all anyway so it'd be moot...

The droid razr was probably my favorite phone I'd ever had. Currently have a s3 and like it a lot. The screen is big and beautiful. The wife just got rid of her iPhone 4 and jumped into a 5. It's ok I guess, the iPhones never really impressed me much. She likes it and swears its easier for work purposes. I'd take an android over iOS all day long.

Can't go wrong with an iPhone, but right now I'm loving my Galaxy S4.

I've got the Galaxy Nexus, and I feel just like Bill Hader in those new commercials, counting down the day until I can get an upgrade. I have learned a lot from my first smart phone.

 

I'm getting the Blackberry Q10. I NEED a keyboard in the worst way. I cannot stand typing on a touch screen. And the thought of 13.5 hours of talk time on a single charge just made me jizz a little bit. Seriously, what's the point of having a super speed phone with a full complement of apps if your charge only lasts 6 hours???

 

I'm done with the trendy smart phones. Give me my good old reliable, boring Blackberry again, and all the fun stuff I'll just get a tablet for.
