Htc just came out with a sweet phone for Verizon, but don't remember the name...I got an htc a few months ago and love it...
Iphone sux, if you sneeze too hard the screen breaks, but my HTC fell out while riding at 100+ and came out just fine.

iPhones dont break like people think they do, I drop mine about everyday with no issues. I will say I did drop it once and the screen hit the corner of a boulder and yes it broke but I went in to Apple and they gave me a new phone for FREE!! The customer service at Apple is miles beyond any other company just like the software in the phone <- show me another phone company that would do this :headshake Eitherway just head to the mall and check them all out then pick the one YOU like the best!!! Because theres iPhones then theres iPhone haters!!

I'm looking at the droid razr. Currently have the HTC thunderbolt. Pretty much a Verizon guy myself, but I also install lte 4g on the towers and I like they're setup better than any of the other carriers. Pick your carrier first, then pick your phone. The phones are always obsolete to quickly to matter, its the carrier your stuck with. And no I'm not employed by Verizon, I'm just a towerhand and I install for any carrier that needs work done. Droid rules ftw.

driod razr or HTC rezound. Im a computer nerd and these phones are crazy as far as specifications.

http://www.phonearena.com/reviews/Mo...Rezound_id2897

only 2 phones with verizon that are comparable. the difference between the two is basically you get a little more speed processor wise on the rezound with the 1.5 dual core rather than the 1.2 on the razr. But the razr is thin where the rezound is thicker. The rezound also has a removable battery unlike the razr and the rezound also comes with $150 pair of beats headphones. one big problem with these phones are the battery life. they just suck ass when i comes to that. there is not a single 4g phone that doesnt though.

now before I hear something about why i didnt mention the iphone is because i wouldnt ever get one. at least until they start being more original again. the iphone 4s is nothing much greater than the iphone 4. here is an upgrade for all you iphone 4 users:




'11 Black zx-10r | Tech-spec Tank pad | Akraprovic w/ link | Power Commander V | Auto tune | HID | 1/5 Insert | Driven Smog Plates | DMP integrated tail light | Vortex rear sets w/ new pressure switch | Puig dark smoke windscreen | BMC Air Filter | Cox Radiator Guard |

To Do List:
ECU reflash
Steering Damper revalved

iPhone simply because it'll be the easiest to sell when you get rid of it.

Your right about the battery life. Nice thing about the thunderbolt over the razr is that you can upgrade to a better battery. However the razr has the dualcore. All good though, by this time next year if your not sporting dualcore, 4g, 3d display (dumb imho), and a projected keyboard then your behind the time.

the thunderbolt is an out dated phone now. it is the HTC rezound that is the new phone to have.

I absolutely LOVE verizon, they have gone way out of their way to take care of me as a customer.

I have a strong dislike for the iPhone stuff..... i don't like the idea of taking them into an apple store if something jacks up. Its an hour drive for me and i despise hipsters.


I'm Still sporting the OG droid from two years ago and I'm loving it still. I have rooted it and love the fact that i can put customs kernals and ROM's on it. those make it run a ton faster due to over clocking the CPU.

I'm ready for an upgrade and am kinda torn. I'm leaning towards the DROID 4 which gets released the 8t of DEC or the Samsung Galaxy Nexus. you guys ever heard of those two phones?

Hell I even looked on eBay for BRAND new OG Droids and they are only 147, then I don't have to worry about a contract!

AHHH decisions!


thanks for the input guys.

-ROACH

EDIT: if any of you guys are still sportign the OG Droid get with me and i can turn it into a new phone for about 20 mins worth of work. Ill walk ya thru the process!
