    Hey, my contract is up for Verizon in September and I was wondering if anyone could give me some suggestions on which phone I should get next. Obviously I am looking for android and I am staying with Verizon so within those terms I am open to opinions. Opinions on new releases and currently available phones are all good, I am open to anything. Thanks

    P.S. is 4g the way to go, don't know much about it so just wondering?

    I would wait for the Nexus Prime. Specs look awesome if they are true.

    Or go for the Bionic or Galaxy S2. The Droid 3 is your best option if you want a keyboard.

    4G is basically much faster network speeds. It mainly affects downloads of apps, music, movies, etc.

    It also speeds up web browsing. It does however have high price tags, and drains battery fast. So whether or not its worth it is up to you.

    My next phone will be either the Galaxy SII, the HTC Vigor, or the the new Nexus phone. We don't know too much about them since they havent been announced, but they should all be pretty awesome. The Droid Bionic will probably be here in a few weeks but, personally, I think these 3 will be better, unless you just cant wait.

    I'm getting the Bionic. The Nexus Prime - who knows when that will be out and if it will be on Verizon.

    The Vigor could be a tablet and it's HTC which makes it automatically eliminated (battery problems, Sense)

    Galaxy - I just don't care.

    Some pros to the Nexus 3/Prime over the BIonic: Probably unlocked, 720p screen, 1.5gHZ processor, bigger screen, android 4.0, super amoled HD, and it'll probably be better for the rooting lovers. (All of this isn't confirmed, but its probably near true)

    Also, it might have a 4.65 inch screen, but if it has on screen buttons, it will a reasonable size.

    Highly subjective. As always with threads like this: what are your needs/wants? Selecting a smartphone isn't a one-size-fits-all thing.

    My contract is also up in Sept. I would like to hold out and get a 720p/1.5Ghz/4G phone but I bet battery life will be brutal with those specs. Battery life is extremely important to me so I will most likely get either a Bionic or Galaxy SII, if it has LTE, depending on how the reviews are.

    SG2, Vigor, or Nexus Prime (if it's on Verizon, which I doubt). If I get desperate, the Bionic...I'm bored with my X2.

    Nexus Prime, ftw! with those specs, and an unlocked Nexus device?!?! for me, it's almost impossible to pass up. Bionic is a close second, followed by GS2. Vigor is out for me, cuz of HTC's history with battery life.

    Well one thing that is certain is you will have quite a few choices, since your upgrade doesn't come until September.

    As others have mentioned, there are many phones coming out within a few weeks of your upgrade, my advice would be go check each and every one of them out and find out which best suits your needs.

    One thing to keep in mind is that you'll have this phone for 2 years and 4G LTE will become the standard by then in most areas.

    The standard by then? I seriously doubt I'll have 4g where I'm at. Att got 3g here just a few months ago...

    If the D3 was 4g, i'd bet it would be considered the best phone currently available in the US, which brings us to the bionic...

    My fiance is going to be switching to sprint soon, but she requires a slider. With the epic 4g announced to be disontinued, we are waiting to hear what sprints next big slider will be. She freaking loves my d3, but vzw made her mad with shoddy customer sevice, so she's leaving them as soon as sprint has something comparable to the d3.

    ATT has terrible coverage. Verizon's pushing out 4G towers like no other company, i'd wager it will be standard within 2 years for 80% of it's users.

    4g will take off when voice over lte is implemented into the phones. I have also heard that Verizon wants to do away with its older network as soon as possible.

    Yea. And on ATT I dropped calls about 1/10th of the time. After 3 years on VZ, I have dropped maybe 2. At most.
