    I have a Rezound. Love it, but can up grade. Any suggestions that are $100 or less? I am on Verizon. I thought about the Galaxy 3, but keep hearing about screens cracking to easy. Thanks for suggestions!

    I'd say the S3 is really good and my screen hasn't cracked. Perhaps the Droid Bionic or DNA? They're all good devices. The Samsung Stratosphere is 30 and the Droid DNA is 200. You might look into the LG Spectrum 2 for 80. The Galaxy Note which is a great device is 300.

    Is that referring to the Stratosphere II? I haven't heard much about it. The Motorola Rarz M looks like a pretty good phone also.

    I have 2 S3's and both screens are fine, and the phone seems as soundly made as any of the others out there.
    I still recommend the S3. If you can get it for that price, it would be a great deal, imo!

    Maybe the screens were part of a bad batch at the beginning. However, there are posts all over different message boards about it.

    The S3 is gorgeous, but I'd say a good idea would be to aim for something with Nexus branding, the Nexus 4 for example, because those get the OS updates as soon as Google bring them out, whilst most others have to wait!

    The Rezound is still a good phone. Most of the phones mentioned wouldn't be a big upgrade, except maybe the Note 2 or the DNA. If those two don't interest you, I would hold out for the next round of phones like the S4 or Moto X or HTC One. (or whatever they end up being named)

    I've never heard that SIII are particularly prone to cracking screens .. Seems like a really good phone, particularly if you can get it for $100. Think I'd wait a month or so as I'm sure the price of the SIII will drop pretty quickly after the S4 is announced.

    The high end HTCs are really good, too.

    The Nexus 4 is awesome, but you should only get it if you're going to pay substantially less than they're asking for the SIII / One X.

    I have moved this thread into the Device Comparison forum to get some better feedback :)

    I don't think they are any more than any other phone. Huge numbers have been sold, you will find a few cases if you search the net, but what's the fraction?
