    At the end of August, I can upgrade my Verizon phone. I currently have a Razr Maxx. What should I look at, in your opinion, and why?

    Welcome to DF! There are a few great options out there and some new ones coming soon. Do you prefer Motorola only or are you open to other manufacturers?

    Welcome to the forum! You really can't go wrong with any of the flagship models from the past 12-16 months as they are all great devices in their own way. It's going to boil down to your personal preference, as we really can't make that decision for you.
    Some of us love Samsung and all the added bells & whistles that come with their devices. Others prefer the simplicity of a pure Android experience that only a Nexus device can provide. The beauty of the LG G4 that infuses both form and function, or Sony with their brilliant displays and amazing camera optics. Moto, HTC, Oppo, Huawei all offer their own unique user experience. Your best bet is to visit your carrier or local Best Buy and really spend some quality time with each device you're interested in. Only then will you be able to decide on what device is best for you.
    Good luck!

    I'd say taking a quality picture with it was probably most important to me. The second most important thing is the ability to use Facebook and their stupid Messenger without clogging up the memory and making the whole thing unusable. I only use those on my phone if I'm not at home.

    I have a Nexus 7" tablet that I use in the house and love it.

    Thanks!

    Welcome to the forum.
    Samsung, arguably, has the best cameras right now with their S6 leading the way in its fleet of current models.
    If you want a great phone the LG G4 is worth a heavy look though you'll probably not like the battery life compared to your current model.
    Basically any of them are going to be a very large step up from what you've currently got , especially in the camera area.
    I'm partial to the Note series due to the s pen and its capabilities for on the fly multi tasking and its incorporation with my Samsung smartwatch. But that's just me.
