Two years ago, my upgrade choice was a no brainer. Went from the OG Droid to the Galaxy Nexus. However, it met an unfortunate end about 8 months ago, and I've been using a friend's Droid 2 Global that I got for pretty cheap ever since. I've read of Verizon's new Maxx plan, where unlimited data users can upgrade and get the 6 gig package for $20, and while I'll miss the unlimited data, 6 gigs is more than enough for typical usage. With that in mind, I've been browsing Verizon's offerings and I'm just really stumped on what to go for. I'm familiar (though it's been awhile since I've been active with it) on rooting, and the capabilities doing so offers. The Samsung Galaxy S4 seems to be the default go-to for most, but to be honest, the white look is a bit off putting. The HTC One (and One Maxx... any difference besides the screen size?) is a tad off putting for the same reasons as the S4, though I've read a lot of good things concerning the phone. The Moto X and Droid Maxx seem (from the reviews I've read) to be more or less the same phone, as far as internals go, except the screen size and battery are much improved on the Maxx. I wasn't much of a fan of the Razr or Razr Maxx. Would these be viable options? I was reading about some phone specific voice control options with these models. Are these capabilities able to be used on another device that's been rooted? The last that stands out is the LG G2. Kinda leaning towards this one to be honest. The only stopping point I'm hitting is I've never had any experiences with an LG phone. Any input would be greatly appreciated. I plan on shopping through Wirefly using Fatwallet, so price isn't much of a concern. Though if there's any amazing deals elsewhere, I'd appreciate the heads up. With the deals I'm seeing on Wirefly, I'm kinda leaning towards either the HTC One Maxx ($99 + you get a $40 gift card -- today only!) or the LG G2 ($39.99). How has Sense UI aged? Have they progressed it enough so that it's usable? Or would my first task with the HTC be to root and flash a new ROM? Anything else (game breaking or phone breaking) I should know about any of these devices?
