    So, my upgrade is available with Verizon as of now. I've had the Galaxy Nexus 32GB since it's release day and I've loved every minute of it - with the customization possibilities. Is there a phone out at the moment that's actually worth going to as far as screen size, RAM, storage space, etc? Or is there a phone on the horizon that I should hold out for?

    Thanks!

    You may find the Samsung s4 to your liking if you were satisfied with the screen size before.
    If you want a bigger screen and more functionality the Note series is with taking a hard look at.
    For me personally there's nothing in their lineup or pipeline that is worth giving up what I'd have to to get a new device. Plunk down a ton of money or give up my old plan. Neither suits me at this point to get anything in their current or near future lineup.

    There are many to choose from. Read up on people's posts about their experiences, and go check them out at the store for yourself. You are bound to find one that is good for your needs. Good luck with your choice.

    Yeah, I'm having a hard time justifying giving up my GNex. I do like the screen size of the GNex. I think the Note series are good phones but they're just took big for me. They're 5", right? It seems like it's a bad time for phone upgrades at the moment.

    Actually, after looking at the Note 3, it might be worth moving to. Also, I've read how the Nexus 5 is coming out sometime soon (possibly October).

    Ah, indeed...the million dollar question. I would certainly think/hope so!

    The 2 million dollar question would be if they do get it will their support repeat the abysmal record they showed the first time around?

    I went from the Gnex to the Note 2 and it's absolutely awesome. Couple day battery life and the development has been great (including unlocked bootloader). I bet if you were to sell the Gnex and buy a used N2 you could come out pretty well and save the unlimited data.

    +1 on the Note 3! I like the screen size and the peripherals that they are offering with the phone. I will be waiting for the early adopters to flesh out the details then get one toward the end of the year. If $$ is a consideration, I haven't heard anything but good news stories about the Note 2. I'm just looking at the quad core (on the 2 or 3) and drooling!!
