So Verizon has a good selection of 4G smartphones available for us consumers to pick and choose what fits our needs. There are quite a few things that factor it what makes the phone ALMOST just right for you. Each of Verizon's 4G phones has man good features, but non are all around perfect. Some of these things are a matter of taste and opinion. Some of the factors are simply facts. Although some people wear rose shaded glasses and do a lot of willy wonka candy coating to their favorite companies. No matter which way you look at it, none of these phones are horrible. They may not work all the time when you want them to, but they aren't horrible. Some folks don't mind having to do the occasional battery pull or reboot. Others find it blasphemy to do such a thing (iphone users). None of the 4G phones on the Verizon lineup totally blows another out of the water. There are things that are more preferred though. What are your top 5 factors that you consider when buying a new phone in order of importance? I ask this because around the forums I see so much trash talk about rival phones. Some people take offense when another member critiques their phone and sometimes leads to some semi heated debates. It's all a matter of taste and personal experience. Mine are: 1. Reliability - I can 99 percent of the time depend on it to work (be powered on and stay on) when showing off something for my friends 2. Reception - I can make phone calls and get on the web in many places 3. Speed/transitions - I can navigate through my phone without major hang ups 4. Screen - my videos and pics look pretty nice 5. Build - The phone feels nice in my hand and has the right amount of durability for me.
