Hi everyone: I'm looking to replace my aging original Moto Droid. Originally my wife an I each got one. My wife has never fully warmed up to the Droid and has finally given up. She'll be gtting an Iphone 5 when it comes out in the fall. I on the other hand, love android and would like to continue using it. The thing is that I would like to avoid as much hardware degradation as possible, so that I don't end up with a slow handset in two year's time. To that end, I'm looking for something with multiple cores (preferably higher than 1.2ghz); Lots of RAM (at least 1 GB); Lots of onboard storage; a replaceable large capacity Battery; and a large display (4.5"); front and rear cameras are good but not essential; no to minimum bloatware; and no physical keyboard. I'm Using the existing HTC evo 3-d as my benchmark (though I'm not interested in the 3D features). I would prefer vanilla Android, but I don't mind HTC Sense. I will consider Moto Blur or samsung if the hardware is good enough (though I'd probably change the UI in those cases). I'm currently on verizon wireless but would consider a change of carrier. I can buy a subsidized phone at any time, but have until december before my current plan expires.. with that in mind, can you guys recommend any existing or upcoming models? My biggest requests are plenty of RAM and a powerful multi core processor. Thanks in advance for all your recommendations.
