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

    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

    Coming from a Droid Bionic that I bought way back in Sept of 2011. It was definitely time for an upgrade!

    32GB Moto Razr. Was a great phone, until the last OTA update. Conspiracy theorist in me thinks VZW bricked it on purpose! Not really bricked, but immediately after the update it went from lightning fast to constantly freezing and force quitting apps. VZW blamed moto, moto blamed VZW, almost went to tmobile over it...almost.
