    Im currently using an lg optimus peice of ****. Anyway, im switching to verizon and would like a little advice to figure out what phone is best for me.

    In order. From most important to least. Ill list what I use the phone most for.

    1. Youtube, web browsing, forums, maybe streaming videos? _im always surfing the net and watching youtube videos at work all day. That's what I do the most on the phone. If I could watch streaming video that would be amazing.

    2. Screen size and rez - bigger the better! My eyesight sucks.

    3. Smooth ui, the problem I have now that I have is my phone laggs, on everything. I hate hate hate the buffering on youtube. I wanna break the phone against the wall sometimes, and angery birds? It laggs so bad I can't even play it. So id love a smooth ui, and fast loading web pages/youtube.

    4. Battrie life. Im a heavy user. So yeah.

    5. Id love to have hd video capture on the phone, but that's not so important.

    Oh I forgot. Loud speaker / speaker phone, that should be at the top also.

    Any suggestions? Ill be going to verizon

    Thanks!!!

    Idk about how loud the speakers are but you almost definitely want either a Droid X2 or HTC Droid incredible 2... I was playing around a bit on both the DX2 is dual core so as long as you have a good signal you should be able to stream just about anything, although the dual core might eat battery a little more
    The Dinc2 has the cool customizable HTC sense (lots of different looks with ease) and it is still blazing fast with a 1Ghz processor AND a front facing camera too I believe...
    Dinc2 scored a solid 40 on linpack
    DX2 got a solid 40 too on single thread but an incredible 70 on multi thread linpack
    Both excellent choices since 4g phones suck so far for battery (both are only 3g)

    Actually if phones like the upcoming Droid bionic still don't work well with 4g I am almost definitely getting either the DX2 or Dinc2 when I upgrade in a few months (hopefully price drops for those on a bit of a budget and hopefully more roms available too)

    Thanks for the reply. I noticed you said that 4g eats battrie life. Like I said, fast internet is more important than batt life. I can leave my phone connected to my comp at work.

    Thanks for the reply.

    Anyone else care to share their input?

    Thank you.

    try out a Droid Charge.

    4.3" screen.

    specs underwhelmed me, as it does most... but using it has changed my opinion. the screen is gorgeous, it's 4g and it's battery life is much better than the Thunderbolt's. I get at least 12 hours with heavy usage, and all day with normal use. I don't have any issues with lag. it runs smooth for me.

    If you will be using more than 2gb a month, I suggest you get your contract in place by July 6th at the latest. It sounds like you will be requiring unlimited data.

    If you carry a car charger and a to go charger and have access to charging at all times then a tb is a good portion, the tb has every thing your asking for except for the worst battery life ever

    How long does the TB batt last with heavy usage roughly? An hour? 20min? 5 hours?

    TB vs Charge?

    Heavy usage around 3 hours if you let it sit there at 100% and let it discharge it will die after like 8 hours
