    If music and decent pics are your main need, then the rezound is amazing. Excellent photos!!! I personally love the beats headphones. All the 4g phones are pretty good, the newer ones are better, so it just depends on what you like.

    Thanks,
    Also, I need a dependable phone. But I assume that's everybody. I heard Samsung isn't great on reception.

    That's the reason I didn't go with the nexus. It's an amazing phone, but I heard to many people saying they were having problems with it, and it just kindof scared me away. I have been extremely happy with the reception on my rezound, both phone and data. I'm sure it also depends on where you live as well.

    I live in the country with 3G, but work in town where there's 4G. But I have a Booster at my house so I get good reception on my BB. They claim, I will have 4g soon. We'll see.
    Wife has an Iphone. I'm not a Mac/Apple fan. So I wanted something else. Also it doesn't have 4g. Apple an I never realy got along.

    Lol, I'm not an apple fan either. Honestly, I rarely use my 4g since most the time I use data I'm connected to Wi-Fi at home. I usually turn the 4g off when I'm out and about to save battery and then just toggle it on if I need it.

    Welcome to Droid Forums!! Good luck on making a decision, there are plenty of great phones out there. Just make sure to get into the store and get some hands on time with them to compare, it will be invaluable to actually making the choice.

    Hello and welcome to the forum!!

    I agree with JSM, if you can get some hands-on time with the devices before you buy them that is always good...there are definitely several good choices out there...I current have both the Maxx and Gnex active and I have had good luck with both (although, side by side the signal on the Gnex isn't as strong)...

    Thanks, folks
    Well, I seem to have 3 that stand out to me. Galixie Nexus, Rezound and the Moto Razr Max. I hear they give you a try out period of 14 days or so. Others have said 3 days. I guess I'll visit the Verizon store tomorrow. I'll post my findings for the next guy looking.
