    OK, after playing replacement roulette, I've had enough. I'm switching back to the G2. I might or might not get the G3. Right now it doesn't make since financially, especially since I know the G2 will suit my needs just fine, however, I've had enough of the M8. I'm going to get 1 more replacement, maybe and then put it up for sell. See you guys later.

    I just never liked it. However, the latest issue is signal and speed issues.

    I'll stay on the G2 forum. I'll try and stay away from the M8 forum. Don't want to be a sore loser ;)

    Oh I have a G2 already as my second phone. It's great. Love it. Doesn't make me miss my Droid Maxx HD at all. In fact, it's better than any phone I've had since the Dinc. I just didn't want to get a phone that was over a year old when I needed to upgrade the Maxx HD. That's why I went with the M8. IO was trying to hold out for the G3, but just couldn't. Now I'm not sure if I'll go G3 next month.

    Droid X? That's not far enough back.

    I started with the OG Droid!

    My Droid Life:
    (Original) "OG Droid" (Thank God it's not a Crackberry) to
    (Droid Incredible) "Dinc" (IMO Best Phone Ever) to
    Droid Charge (Worse Phone Ever) to
    Bionic (Da Little Phone that could) to
    Moto Razr (2 Hour Battery Life?), Maxx (OMG The battery life!), Maxx HD (Great phone until 4.2 screwed it up), to
    G2 (Ranks right up there with the Dinc), then
    M8 (Not a fan), and now back to G2 (YES!).
    I still might get the G3 (?).

    So since November 2009, I'm averaging 2 phones per year. Ya. It'll be tough to convince wifey that I should be able to buy the G3...

    Oh wait. I forgot about that two week window where I tried out a HTC One Maxx phablet. Ya, it lasted 2 weeks, then went up for sale. Waaay too big for me. Just squeeze that one in between the first G2 and M8. So it's this way:
    ...G2 (Ranks right up there with the Dinc), then
    HTC One Max (Holy Crap! I didn't know you could use a tablet as a phone!?), then
    M8 (Not a fan), and now back to G2 (YES!).
    I still might get the G3 (?).

    Droid Inc, HTC rebound, Droid DNA, and finally to the M8. I agree the Droid Inc was an awesome phone for its time but I think it stuck out the most for me due to coming from an HTC Fuze.

    I had originally planned on going with the G3 but after using the m8 I fell for the front facing speakers. I stream alot of media and these things are awesome!

    i would switch back to the G2 if it wasn't a hassle. there's not much of a benefit to the M8 but it's not worth switching.

    I have the m8 now and like it, just wish the camera was up to par... May pick up the G3 if I can manage an early upgrade. The M8 is a top notch phone.. like I said, its just the camera.. which isnt even all that bad.
