    Phone Upgrade soon, any suggestions?

    I can get an upgrade for my phone in 3 days time and I have no idea what to go for, was hoping some of you could offer some suggestions! I currently have an HTC One X and before that I had an iPhone 4, I don't mind what the operating system is, not interested in blackberrys!

    My wife is upgraded her phone this week from her HTC ONE X to an iPhone 5s. She did look at the Samsung S4 though too, seemed okay.

    Ah yeah is the S4 the phablet one yeh?

    I haven't looked at the iPhone 5s, I know quite a few people have them and they don't seem to have any issues. I did have a little look at the LG G2

    I have the LG g2 and love it. Samsung galaxy 5 dropping soon so if you wait you can prob get a 4 for a good price. IPhone I am not a fan of.

    on tap a talk on LG g2 and I suck at typing on phones so forgive my typo errors.
    I have twitter to https://twitter.com/GamerYuichi , Also started youtube https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCMu7yRGCz8QrTyxaNVR3Tqw I don't always twitch, but when I can you can find my noobness http://www.twitch.tv/yuichimccry,

    The S4 is not known as the phablet. That is the Note series.

    I would sit tight and get the Galaxy S5 next month.

    Ah yeah that's it

    Just looked at the specs for the S5, sounds like a beast, especially the processor, camera and wifi capabilities.

    Hardware wise it's very strong. Big 1080p screen but small bezel so overall dimensions are manageable. The two biggest complaints I remember from reviews was volume/power buttons being on back (slightly annoying) and the UI (doesn't really bother me, lots of customization).

    The battery is big and lasts soooo much longer than my last phone. I'm not sure it's as amazing for me as some people write in reviews but perhaps it's my apps and settings also. The knock on feature is awesome and I use it all the time.

    My GPS however had been a bit sluggish at times so I'm going to look into that soon. Hopefully it's just a software thing and will get better with the kitkat update which I'm still waiting on from Verizon.

    Another con I guess would be the build. I'm not sure I'd call bad but it is all plastic exterior that attracts fingerprints. Mine also creaks a bit but doesn't bother me much. I've read it doesn't survive drops very well because of the big screen and tiny bezel.

    I watched some videos and reviews for the G2, seems like the phone version of my LG GPad 8.3! I really enjoy using the tablet and the knock knock feature is really useful as well, sometimes I find I tap my phone and realise that it doesn't work on it


    Just been looking at the Nokia Lumia 1520 as well and that has really good specs! I did look at some offers where you can get a free Xbox One or up to 250 cash back but they're pretty mediocre phones compared to what you can get now

    As someone who works with mobile phones I would suggest waiting for the next gen of phones next month. As a Samsung fan I'm upset that the difference is minimal from the S4 and the body is still basically the same.

    The Z2 looks awesome and is probably what I'll get. It'll be interesting to see what HTC announce at the end of the month.

    I would recommend waiting until the new gen of gpu's which will be arriving shortly along with metal bodied units from the like of huewai (?) And oppo. More incoming brands will shake things up nicely...even these are whackin out the high end handsets uhd screens with the 801/805 n $#@! loads of ram. Mostly android but hey..more choice right...

    I have an S4 and I love it tremendously. I moved on from iPhone and haven't looked back. I'd look into the S5 which is coming out here in April I believe.

    I have it on my phone. The phone is more responsive now and the notification bar and everything up top is white now. Haven't noticed anything else. The keyboard could be different but I'm not sure. I use Swype.

    I'm in the same boat as you man. I'm about to separate from the family plan and upgrade but I want to wait next month so I can get the S5. But at the same time, I'm checking out pros and cons of other phones that people say are good.

    Yeah it's hard to decide whether to wait or get one now. I am very tempted by the Nokia Lumia 1520, it's got a 6" full hd screen, 20mp camera, 2.2ghz processor and 3400 mAh battery, I can get the phone free as well.

    It is yeah, I hear their app store isn't that great but I don't really use that many apps on phones anyway, just the generic facebook, twitter, instagram and that's about it haha.
