I'm liking my s5.
Had nothing but Motorola before this and they all sucked.

He's right about Motorola signal though. Very stout, great gps too. Samsung gps navigation is not as accurate, but does get the job done.

I've heard the same about motorola antennas from numerous phone people as well. I will say the one in my samsung is horrible. I wonder how the LG ones rank.

I have good luck with my LG signal. Not sure how it compares to Samsung, butI have signal in so many more places that I did with my HTC.

I have a rzr maxx personal and LG g2 company cell, both Verizon. The G2 typically has more bars side by side, the rzr maxx call clarity is better. Both are bloated and the maxx is constantly running out of ram but is also 2 yrs old(2nd phone, 1st stopped taking a charge). Waiting to see what the G3 looks like when it comes out before upgrading.

I had the droid DNA and loved most of it, after I dropped it insurance sent me the M8. I like all but the camera, it's ok, but the DNAs was better. The front facing speakers are awesome for conference calls.

I have really liked my last two HTC's. I have the HTC DNA now and this phone is perfect for me.

Going with the LG G2.

It should be at the shop when I get back Friday.

Maxx had better battery life, but the processor wasn't much better than what's in my 2 yr old RAZR Maxx.

At least I get 30 days to try it out.

Good choice. Delete the as much bloat shit as you can and you will be happy.

I picked up the G2 on Sunday. So far it seems ok, battery life makes it one day, with usually about 30% left when I plug it in for the night. With their current promotion I got the phone free and a I got a free tablet with it too.

I think it's only 14 days to try it out now, with a $30 restocking fee if you don't like it. That's what they told me at least.

On the G2, disable all the bloatware and it won't update or hinder performance. It won't let you delete that shit

Just got an email from Verizon. They are taking pre orders for the G3. It's only $100 if you order early. Figures since I just got the G2 4 days ago.

Apparently the s5 active is exclusive with AT&T. That blows.
