    If you like for a phone to "own you" instead of YOU "owning your phone" then iPhone will be the right choice, if you are OK with horrible battery, non removable SD card, then..iPhone is for you!!!!!!, I've had all cell phones, Apples, berries and Droids, and all I can say is that by far, even after buying the S4 and returning it to go back to my note 2, It has been THE NOTE 2, no phone compares to it, performance, picture and the battery is the same or perhaps maybe one hour less than the MAXX...The note 3 its coming by September/October...Before you do that horrible transition, I would strongly suggest you to wait for the NOTE 3 to come out and test it and play with it, cause the only phone that could be better than the NOTE 2, definitely will be the NOTE 3....

    Nice idea but sounds much better said than done. No way i am giving anyone a note 2 because they want to leave android. I am more than happy to allow them to go to apple world. Whatever phone they are wanting to give up i will gladly take. Bk i would love to help out with your fund (ok no i wouldn't) but i have a note 4 active Google experience edition to save up for. :D

    It's hard to think about Snapple when it comes down to the Google experience and gaining all those features... In fact considering that there are going to be Google experience phones coming out to GS4, HTC One, and Sony's XperiaZ, with on top of that an X phone... By Q3/Q4 Blackberry will be a memory of the past, Windows will only be known for Office software, and Apple will once again be a lost cause.

    Funny, some things are universal I guess. I Moderate another Forum and it always strikes me funny when many times an Op throws an Oh Henry bar in the pool and then ski-daddles.
    Anyway. As I've mentioned I own/operate a Company and actually "Need" a phone -vs- play with my phone. Great if it is fun too but, it has to
    - Make/Receive calls
    - Navigate
    - Take/send photos
    My Son has an iPhone, couldn't give me an iPhone and He had always wanted one and finally at 21 yeras of age went and jumped (in college and at PSU - Apple rules the day) He wants back to Android but rarely will utter the words aloud.
    I "Had" a Samsung. Marched into Verizon and simply said, " I do not know what you want to do with this nor do I care, Give me back a Grown-ups Phone that actually works". They tried to give me a (the one obama has) I said "That was Funny, how about a Motorola"
    I now use a MaxxHD and when my Son said the other night, "Hey Dad, let me have your phone a minute I want to download this app for you"
    (That is what started the trouble when I had to get rid of my last RazrMaxx)
    I said, " No"
    "Why?"
    " Because, No"
    "Why"
    " Because this phone works and it is going to stay that way"

    Moral of my story. IMO the Droid, Motorola, Verizon, and my Phone ALL work. It is when people screw around with something that the problems start and that is true of many things - to include Life in general.
    Here's to things that work!

    It's a comment thread. My comment was meant to elicit conversation, which it appears to have done successfully. I've read every post. The only reason I'm responding to this post is because you stated that "It is when people screw around with something that the problems start and that is true of many things." I haven't "screwed around" with anything. My Droid RAZR MAXX HD is completely stock, with only basic apps installed. That is why it's frustrating. Even the most basic tasks slow the phone down. It can't even load a basic webpage without suffering a hernia.

    I would agree 1000% with you!! Having been a cell phone technician (now retired) for over 10 years, I believe you've hit the nail on the head.

    Now, maybe the OP hasn't messed with his phone, who knows. But I'm one of the same school of thought. My MAXX HD is absolutely stock except for the Torque app I run for OBDII data logging, turbo cars.
    It's absolutely when people start adding this, that and the other that problems start. There's usually always something that has been done to cause such issues.
    Or, maybe the OP just has a bad phone. Mine works perfectly every time, does exactly what I want it to, when I want it, every time I want it, and only requires a recharge every third day (yes I turn it off at night).

    I sincerly hope the OP doesn't switch to an Iphone or some other abomination. And sticks with the best carrier (Verizon).

    This is getting interesting and welcome back to the discussion. Around the thought of messing with the phone is what causes problems, and the idea that our devices are just prone to lag even if nothing is done to them, is something to think about and discuss. I remember my first Android device which was with HTC Hero with Sprint, which I rooted the device towards the end of the period that owned it, because I was learning that there was more customization and things that I could do with the phone. Which up until that point I had owned numerous Blackberries, Windows, and even Palm OS phones. The funny thing about those phones, is that they too had lag. Windows was notoriously known for slow performance, it didn't matter what carrier it was or which manufacturer it was it was just an awful experience. I never really liked Blackberry, but I was big on Palm. I guess while I mention those dinosaur phones they were important because they showed improvement, the models added color screens, added cameras, smaller antennas, which now they are getting back to becoming a bigger (thinner size) again, go figure that would happen. But with those phones they didn't allow for customization and even though they didn't there was still lag in them. We talk about apple and their phones, which not a lot of options to change things around, it's almost like being locked into the iTunes/Blackberry servers. I guess really the point that I am trying to get to, we are always going to have some type of lag in our phones, some greater than others, what works perfectly smooth for one person, will not always duplicate for everyone else. For those of us that own Android, we can be upset that our device doesn't run smoother, but at the same time we can look past that imperfection and enjoy our phones, make them our own, because after all we do have an Android. When I bought my phone, I bought it for all great features that it had, I don't remember caring that it had to be lag-free phone. Instead, it had features that I wanted, better reception, better battery, and better performance.
