Can you get the Nexus 4 on Verizon? I would stick to a Nexus device so you can always have the latest version of Android. If not the Galaxy S3 looks better than the DNA in my opinion. Even better, *cough* iPhone 5 *cough*

I was waiting on you

Unfortunately I can't get the Nexus 4 on Verizon, I definitely would if I could though, it's a sweet phone. I'm sure you already know my feelings on the iPhone 5. I messed with it A LOT and I just can't bring myself to like it.

I'm kind of leaning towards the DNA just because I personally don't like AMOLED displays all that much. I've been hearing good things about battery life from both phones so that's always a plus too but I feel like everyone and their mother has an S3....kind of like an iphone

Why'd you end up getting the RAZR? I'd consider that but I and a few friends have had TERRIBLE luck with motorola devices.

I guess I think 5" screen is too large on the DNA and after owning an HTC phone in the past I can't buy another because the quality was so bad. I always thought the GS3 was a good option though because Samsung makes quality stuff.

Oh you had the thunderbolt didn't you? I remember you complaining about it which is why I'm still skeptical on the DNA. Only things the S3 has going for it that I'm really liking is the removable battery and expandable memory. Granted I haven't used all 16gb on my iphone, i'd still like to be able to hold more. Looks like I'm just gonna have to go to verizon again and mess with them some more

I think I like it better than the touchwiz that comes with the S3, not entirely sure. Always liked the sense layout better. But the touchwiz UI does make for a lot of nice customization out of the box with the S3 which is nice.

Yeah the Thunderbolt was supposed to be the flagship 4G phone on Verizon when it came out but it was a laggy piece of crap with 3-4 hour battery on 4G. I haven't used any other HTC phones though, so maybe the DNA is good.

I'm only going off reviews right now but people are saying they are getting 8-12 hrs of battery life depending on usage. Obviously it differs whether you are on wifi or 4g.

January 26th needs to hurry up so I can just make a last second decision like I always do

I did too. Lol. But my sister has sprint for work and she gets terrible service here and in Cali. So i'm just gonna deal with the capped data. I don't use more than 2-3 gigs a month anyway. I'm always on wifi.
