Default It's the annual Which New Phone thread!

Yup, upgrade time.

Narrowed it down to Droid Maxx and LG G2


If someone can convince me the Samsung S5 is worth the $200 I may consider that as well.


My provider is Verizon.

Discuss.

I've had the LG G2 for about 7 months now. It does not have a memory card. I love the hell out of it. Fast, great battery life. I have a 14 month old son. This means I take a TON of pictures and video. After uploading to dropbox, I just deleted over 800 pictures. Not because I needed to, but didn't want to run out of memory when it wasn't convenient. I use my phone heavily. Data, talk, text ect. It usually lasts a day and a half or so. Highly recommend.

I did find it feel fragile when I 1st got it. It's been in an otter box defender since day 2.

I have the Maxx... Came from an S3, I like samsungs interface a lot more, however the battery life on this phone is downright awesome. Used to plug my s3 in 2-3 times a day. I still haven't been able to kill the Maxx's battery in a day. Even with it streaming pandora via bluetooth with navigation running for a couple hours.

I dont really have any complaints aside from the shitty camera. All my pics seem grainy and washed out.

Love my Droid Maxx. Battery is awesome. I average between 24-30 hours on a charge depending on use and have even had a few 35-36 hour charges. I personally like Motorola's interface more than any of the other Manufacturers I've had.

$200? I just got the S5 2 months ago for $150 with a $50 mail in rebate. Granted that was 2 months ago but I'm too lazy right now to check what they're going for now.

And an LG can never compete with a Samsung

My wife has the LG G2 and loves it, except the picture quality isn't that good. I have a Motorola Photon Q. POS. Does take good pictures though. And for those saying cell phone batteries last for more than a day, you're full of $#it or you don't use your phone. I've never seen one last more than that unless it was just sitting and in an area with good service. Our next phones will probably be the S5, unless something else that looks good comes out by then (May 2015 )

S5. I easily go all day on a charge, some texting, some email, and streaming iheart for about 8 hours. Plus its ok if you get it wet. I had the s2 before this, and this is much better. The screen is nice and clear and so is the camera.

I have an S3 now, shittiest phone I have ever had. No service half the time, the majority of my calls get dropped and I never have a 4g signal. I'm due for a new one, but having a hard time deciding if the S5 is worth it after owning this POS.

I have the Droid Maxx.
It was offered to us by Verizon for $99 and they gave us $100 in trade in value for our Droid Bionics. FREE phone!

I get an average of 18 hours on a charge with heavy web wheeling, e mail, texting, calls and other browsing activity. The camera features were tricky to learn, but once I did... It takes great pictures. Best droid yet!
As with all droid products, there are tons of free apps
