I have spent a few hours trying to decide what phone to purchase. I can only afford this every two years so I want to make sure that I am happy. A quick background, I got my droid X a little less than two years ago and when I first got it, I loved it and swore to never even look at an IPhone. Then about six months ago, they sent me a Gingerbread updated and my delight has gone. Add to that the fact that Siri started talking and I have been really miserable with this phone for the past six months. I know there are no guarantees, but I just thought I would mention what I have found on the top phones in my consideration and what I have found. Any information, experience, stories, etc you could share for this Verizon use would be great.
I am grandfathered in on the unlimited plan and I use my phone quite a bit. I am too much of a wuss to root and not sure I have the time to make that commitment (don't hate, just being honest)
1) I Phone 4s- I am aware that this is a droid forum and not trying to stir anything up. The truth is that if my Droid X had not become so sluggish and ridiculous, I would never even have thought about it. My wife is an avid apple use and I have had the advantage of seeing that Siri is kind of a novelty that wears out. I would have to buy all apple chargers and with any other phone, all my old chargers should work. In the plus column this phone is on every website top 5 list (cnet, pcmag, pcworld) and apples do not become obsolete after one year.
2) Galaxy Nexus- This is where I am leaning. I want 4G and it is. It has ICS which means it has the latest to start off with. It is a bit different on the feel, but I could get use to that i am sure. I can stream to a tv from netflix if wanted with hdmi cable. I can still tether with pda net for emergency situations.
Cons: Can not upgrade from 32 GB does not bother me, I don't have that much.
No light indicator for messages..that bugs me.
No hardware. I like my droid x buttons.
No direct file transfer. I read there is an app, but I gotsa to wonder why they did that.
Some complaints with reception.
3) Razzr Maxx - I hated to Razzr back in the flip phone day, but I liked the look and feel of this phone. The battery is kewl, but I am almost always where I can charge. 4G Still. Maybe a better screen.
Cons: No ICS yet, which means I am starting behind.
No removable battery.
I think I am buying into Moto Blurr being why I am ticked at my Droid X right now.
Would not have considered until reading the posts and I am going to do a bit of research on this one as well.
Any added advice or experiences you can share would be great. I know many of you feel like all us newbies ask the same question, but I greatly appreciate the advice.
