Understandable.

What makes IOS so great is also what makes it annoying. It is locked down; it is much less vulnerable to problems than Android. But the price of that is more limits on what it can be coaxed to do.

Having both is a useful solution

for me the problem with apple is that you have to be plugged in to receive updates, to activate, to sync files. and i'm not a fan of that option.


just sayin

I am in the early upgrade stage and would prefer to just wait it out. The galaxy nexus can be had on amazon for 100 and thats pretty reasonable. However in a few months I can see a leap that will last for a year instead of that six month gap in between leaps

in a few months you will probably see quad core devices, however very few apps/games will support it until they can utilize the cores, we have seen some games premier on quad core phones. i wonder how these phones will operate.. im thinking overheating may become a small issue for some

Sorry for this being a little off topic. So for you guys upgrading your X it making you changed your data plan to tiered? I was looking at using my upgrade to get my mom an Iphone but it makes me change my data plan. Any idea?

if your currently at unlimited data you should be able to stay unlimited. However if your wanting to add a line that may be why your getting asked to select a data plan.

In my opinion (sorry, I haven't sunken down to using abbreviations yet), I would much rather get the Galaxy Nexus than one of the quad cores released this year. Everyone knows the premiere technology released is more than plagued with bugs. It takes at least a solid half of a year after the technology is released to finally start producing reliable phones with the new technology.

Because I and other people are getting the Galaxy Nexus, we're getting a product at the end of the dual core age, which means it should be a flawless (or close to) dual core (being the technology has been out for about a year now).

The only way you can keep your unlimited data (assuming you're on Verizon) is if you are upgrading a smartphone to another smartphone. If you are upgrading your Droid X to an iPhone, you should be able to keep your unlimited data plan. I literally just went through this yesterday morning, when upgrading my Droid X to a Galaxy Nexus.

Also, if you upgrade your 3G phone to 4G, I believe you are eligible for a $100 discount! I personally didn't get it, because I was upgrading before my 24 month contract was up, but I feel it's worth it.

Sorry about the typo's in my previous message! Thank you for the reply and the excellent response from everyone that helped. I was able to figure it out. When you add the phone to your cart it will come up with message on top that says this phone is not compatible with your current data plan. You must select a new plan, But at the bottom it says if you change plans you cant go back. Your unlimited is still there and selected. So to keep it simple just don't click anything else and move to the next page and your fine. I was looking at upgrading to the iphone for my mom but she isnt sure about the data package and monthly fee when we add it to her line. So I will probaly just wait till the new 5 comes out and see what she wants to do then. Thanks everyone!

I'll be waiting until there is a solid reason to move away from the X. What that means for me is a solid quad-core that doesn't kill battery life, over 1080p OLED screen or 250+ppi display. Thin, but removable back cover for internals and battery pulls/replacements. 1080p video at 60 FPS. 64GB internal memory + SD card. 4G+ network. Front facing HD camera. No tactile buttons, but full screen utilization like the Gnex. It has to be durable (gorilla glass/metal...no kevlar marketing bs)

It would also be really cool to have a 16:10 phone with a bezel so dark that you can't barely notice HD content in 16:9

Most of all, no phone with a physical form factor over 5" diagonally. I think that a 4.7" screen is max I am comfortable with.

NO LOCKED BOOTLOADER (so no more moto phones for me)
ROM support that has a solid dev community behind it.

Might sound like a lot, but I expect that most of these features will be standard by end of 2013.

Talking upgrade

Just upgraded last week to the Motorola droid Razr Maxx and man is it really nice! My 2 year contract was up with the droid X so I decided to upgrade and went with the Razr Maxx. It has phenomenal battery live, way better then even the X with after market upgraded battery! Seriously I can listen to music all day on this thing play some games of angry bird on it surf the web, and at the end of the day have anywhere from 1/2 to 3/4 battery life still. This would of left my X dead on the floor lol. its very quick and responsive and so far have had 0 problems.

I have owned 2 types of phones, Moto and Samsung. And everytime I had a Samsung I have wanted something else. But the Motos rock! From my original Nextel i850 to the X.

And can we have a moment of silence for Nextel, they were once the best service provider, then Sprint bought them out and drove them into the ground.

My upgrade date was 2 weeks ago so am eligible for $30 off (woo-hoo). I wasn't going to, but came into a little cash ($2k, not the lottery) so if I'm going to do it, now would be right.

Looks like I missed out on the 4g $100 off. I believe that ended on 3/31?

The Nexus got a radio update that appears to have improved one of the shortcomings so I'm leaning toward it right now. My first phone was the Dinc, but the X came out w/in my 30 day return period so I opted for that, primarily b/c of the bigger screen. Does Verizon have a screen bigger than the Nexus? I'm thinking not.

While this is a good list, it is also indicative you are still living to overcome the deficiencies of the DX. The removable back cover is a particularly quant idea.

The current gen of dual cores are more than solid enough on performance to blow away a DX experience. And the current gen of blur in particular (but sense as well) run so smoothly you don't need custom roms for performance (seriously, the locked bootloader on the DX was largely a non issue). If you want a developer phone to play with, that's another story, but it isn't needed like on the DX. And the impendingrelease of ICS will make this even less an issue.

The real issue to track now is that battery life. 4G and big screens don't mean squat if you have to constantly recharge throughout the day.

If quad cores and the next gen 4G radios are as good on power savings as people think they will, then it may happen. Until then, the Maxx is hard to beat. I actually am contemplating using live wallpapers for the first time on an Android phone.

I'd still wait to find out more about the Droid Fighter. Rumor is that it should be on sale this month.

Too late, ordered all the accessories (case, extended battery) online last night and picked up the phone today. Got the same price as online. Now need to play.

Motorola radio would be nice.
Locked Motorola bootloader, not so much.

Still have 14 days for buyer's remorse to swap to a different device.

Did you get an upgrade discount? I became eligible for an upgrade on 3/15 and thought I still had one more $100 "new every two" discount under the old plan but the VZW sales rep said that I only qualify for a $30 "Loyalty" discount now. What a bunch of crap! They raise the price of their flagship phones by $100 while they reduce the upgrade discount by $70? Then they have the nerve to call it a "LOYALTY" discount???

Yup, and "new every two" goes away when you upgrade. Lots of other changes too, basically to make it easier when a family/group breaks up or primary acct holder leaves (or at least that's what I was told).

Well, I just bit the bullet as my DX was about to bite the dust (it had been chewing away for a while). The last straw was using Navigation on Saturday and right before the exit, it decided to reset itself. POS!!! Of course, I missed my turn and had to back track to get to my destination. After I got home, I went online and ordered the Maxx via Amazon. I had a $50 discount from VZW, plus another $50 through my work, but with the lovely tax laws in CA, I actually saved about $30 by getting it tax free from Amazon for $229. I then realized I had some eBay bucks kicking in on Tuesday, so free accessories for me. And for good measure, I redeemed some rewards points for $200 cash on my credit card.

Amazon got it to me on Monday (1 day early!!) and it's been freaking awesome. Smooth as silk! I'm in love all over again. Too bad the rumored ICS update wasn't true. See you all on the other side...it's been a great ride.

I was tempted by the Razr Max as my update is this month: April 18th, but I'm going to hold out and see what this "Fighter" is all about.

I'm enjoying my SGN. It's so fast I've underclocked it from 1200 mhz to 920 mhz. It flies when OC'd to 1350. The screen is very sharp, but you'll want the $25 extended battery from Verizon if you use your phone much. (4g plus the high resolution screen tax the stock battery.) There's a crap load of custom roms and they all have working cameras.

Been wanting to get the Nexus for a month now. But at this point, I feel like its an older phone now. I rather wait for the next generation of the 4g phones. Hopefully better battery life and stuff.... but that doesn't mean I don't look every day for a super good deal. Maybe if the white gnexus comes out then ill bite.

Think about this... do you want to install custom roms? It takes time for roms to mature and everything to work. The SGN already has ICS and LOTS of roms to choose from.

I'd say wait until summer if you can hold out, the next generation of top end phones will be out. I'm due in September, but being that a lot of the higher end phones seem to come out later in Q4 I'll be holding off until Novemberish(provided my X doesn't crap out on me).

Loved the DX for almost 2 years and wasn't planning on upgrading for a while, until I got an offer for a free upgrade to any 4g phone in Verizon's lineup. I asked the rep why I received that offer and he said I was clogging up the 3g network with data usage :-P. I've had the Razr Maxx about 3 weeks and, so far, I love it. I am anxious for ICS though and will probably flash the leak if it doesn't come reasonably soon.

I think we all know what to do for a free phone now.

I saw the $30 upgrade charge and decided it was time to upgrade my wife's stupid phone. If I had been smart, I would have updated to my Nexus last month when they had the $100 off 4g promo. Missed it by 4 days.

I'm seriously considering jumping to the Maxx next weekend (unless I can find something worth waiting for...I'm looking at you, Fighter).

Scratches head. Isn't Android the OS, how can you have an OS for an OS

Anyway I've decided to keep my X for awhile longer I overclocked / undervolted and it feels feels so crisp and fast not delays or hesitation anymore. It's amazing its like I have a new phone now.

I just couldn't do it...I was using my friends I phone 4 yesterday at work and I couldn't see what the big deal was. There is no doubt that the iPhone paved the way for the smart phones...in 2007 the iPhone was beast and no other phone could compare...But now I think Android has a better OS, and with all the companies making phones for the android they have much better hardware.

Been with Verizon for over 6 years now. They keep lowering what they offer and charging me to stay(upgrade phone wiht new contract). As of now I will be switching to another carrier come Sept.

I am looking at the Samsung Galaxy SIII when I do switch unless something else is out then that is better and offered where I am going to.

OK, just bit the bullet and got the Razor Maxx a couple hours ago. I did it now because I can keep my unlimited data plan but move to the 4g LTE network speed, and the battery life on my DX has been fading big-time.

Loved the DX, but my GF has the regular Razor and I got to play with it for a while - love the speed, no lag, screen resolution, etc. etc. The DX will be my backup now...

I want to keep my unlimited data, so I'm probably going to get the GS3. I don't really like that it's even bigger than my DX, but no other phone can compete with the power and the price. I'd have gone with the Razr Maxx, but it's currently $200 (same price as the GS3) for older technology. Since it seems like the GS3's battery will last the day most of the time, and the radios are supposedly ok, I don't see any other advantage other than build quality (which is important, but not the most important).

Where did you hear about the radios? That's my biggest concern with the SGS3. I'm definitely upgrading before the 28th and it will probably be the SGS3. I would have preferred the RAZR HD, but unless they start the pre-order for it in the next week or two, it's out of the running.
