    So, my Droid Turbo (1st gen) had a rough life. I just got back from a deployment in Texas doing disaster relief for Hurricane Harvey and it's just worn out! Verizon is unfortunately my carrier and about my only choice here in the mountains. I've narrowed it down to OnePlus 5 (Verizon doesn't carry), HTC U11, Pixel XL or LG G6. Battery life is important otherwise I'd settle for the Pixel instead of the XL. The OP5 has a great camera according to the stats and 6/8 RAM! It's my first choice but I don't think they work with Verizon. Ack, why not?

    What say you? What phone did I miss? (I'm not a fan of Samsung phones, though the Note8 does look awesome).

    You missed LG V30. You could try waiting for the Pixel 2/XL2.

    I def plan to wait, hopefully only a few weeks or a month, for the pixel 2 which I hear might be based on the U11. I'll have to look at the v20 - don't know much about it. Possible better camera? I know same screen size. I'll look at that today. Thanks

    So, the V30 is supposedly out mid Oct and the Pixel 2 is out Oct. 5. I'll wait to check out both. Google just purchased HTC which explains the new Pixel has having the HTC build. Not so sure about the squeezable sides, but I will remain open-minded.
