    The Galaxy S5 if your next phone... what phone are you replacing?

    Galaxy S4 for me.

    I'll be leaving my Note 3 behind. As much as I love the Note 3, the S5 won me over with its camera and IP67 rating.

    I am leaving behind my Droid Razor Maxx. I have struggled between the S5 and the HTC One M8. Bsweetness is onto something as the camera and IP67 rating swayed me as well.

    I struggled with the M8 and S5 as well. Each have some unique features I like. Finally decided on the S5

    S3 too. Camera, IP67 and QI charging. I like the idea of HTC boom speakers. I usually connect to Bluetooth wherever I'm at.

    Last June, I upgraded from a Droid Bionic to a Samsung Galaxy S3. Unlikely that I'll be upgrading again anytime soon but if I were able to, I think I would go with the S5. Not sure if Verizon would let me upgrade without losing the data plan I have right now.

    I upgraded from Motorola Droid Maxx xt1080, I have always had Motorola phones but this last one was the worst phone ever. I'm hoping this one is not a disappointment.

    My Verizon upgrade is April 25th and at this point my droid dna is still in excellent shape.:)
    So this makes it difficult to upgrade because in my opinion the s5 is much better on paper, but in real world use it's not a huge upgrade IMHO.
    So do I save my upgrade for later (note 4 or LG g3) or bite the bullet and go for it
