    Same song, on repeat.

    I dont know why I bought 4 iphones in 4 years...but this is getting ridiculous.

    Switched to the Samsung SIII and plan on sticking around with Android for a while. At least, until Apple can think of something new.

    If you live in Memorial or spend a lot of time in Memorial area, then don't switch. :eek:

    I agree with the first part. I'm a big Apple fan and strictly use their products but once I bought the New iPad then a few months later they come out with the newer iPad, that rubbed me the wrong way.

    I just upgraded my girlfriends 4 to a 5, was going to do the same for myself but am now thinking about just waiting for the 5S.

    In fairness to Apple, I went from a Galaxy S to a Galaxy S2.

    I don't feel it was worth it.

    The S3 failed to even get on my radar.

    The leaps in technology and advancements between the 1 and 3 are staggering.

    digitimes doesn't have that much credibility but...some of the stuff they said were true. Time did an article about it.

    Totally agree.

    I went from an S2 to a S3. Way better.

    Wish I had waited for the Lumia.... looks amazing, and so far the iPhone 5 has been less than impressive.

    Well, I just ordered a Motorola Droid RAZR MAXX HD Super Mega Ultra Aspergers Edition phone from Amazon. Got a decent discount. ($149 as opposed to $299 retail)

    Also ordered a Google Chromebook from Tiger Direct. Hoping to use these two together for a long time while traveling and out-and-about on Verizon.

    Fak u Sprint.

    Have had an upgrade for a while. was going to get a Galaxy SIII on Black Friday, but I just found out about the Droid DNA. I have verizon. Is the DNA my best option right now?

    Was waiting on the Nexus 4 for a while, but I'm pissed off that Verizon isn't offering it so my upgrade would be useless

    I think between the DNA and Maxx HD, those are probably your two best options for Android. Of course the S3 is still a great phone also.

    Here's a review of the DNA. http://www.theverge.com/2012/11/16/3653508/htc-droid-dna-review

    Apparently according to the reviews, the battery life underwhelming on the DNA.

    There's also the new Galaxy Note II which I've heard is a nice phone.

    I dunno. You'd have to call amazon. I'm a new customer.

    Post your feedback on that phone when youve played around with it for a while. That phone interests me.

    They said that price is for new customers only.That's a good deal for that phone. Maybe Verizon will have a sale for black friday.

    got it (htc droid dna) about 20 mins ago and have to say...

    ...holy hell. easily the prettiest phone i've seen and it seems really thin the way that the sides are tapered. any vid you've seen online won't do the screen justice. yes, you can tell the screen is better than any other phone (including any retina display) out there.

    will see the battery goes for the next few days. also keeping a lookout for an s-off solution in the next couple of weeks.

    again, damn... everything on this 1080p screen looks like wet ink. :eek:

    I was still using the iPhone 2g when the iPhone 4 came out. That phone was rock solid. I upgraded to the iPhone 4 when it was going for $100 with an upgrade and I'm not planning on upgrading soon at all. My gf has the iPhone 5 but I don't see it worth the $200 + upgrade.
