    Upgrading from my rooted Note 3 finally. Just trying to decide which phone to go with. My options are, V20 $576, S7 edge $696, and pixel xl $869. I'm adding it to my plan with monthly payments. I'm also getting $200 off any of the above prices.

    Which is the better option? I have done some research but was curious what you all thought.

    These are the issues with each one that I've found which is why I am having a hard time deciding.
    V20 - Camera is finicky and the glass over camera is delicate.
    S7 edge - Verizon only carries the snapdragon version, which is supposedly a little laggy.
    Pixel XL - First Gen phone, seems to be minimal issues that I've read about but who knows what will come up. Also it seems to be the more simple phone out of the 3. Not necessarily a bad thing but for the price some bells and whistles would be nice.
    Thank you for any help.

    LG G6 but I think it's a couple of weeks out.

    I heard the pixel has an inferior camera.

    I don't know- I have the S7E and experience no problems with lagginess, YMMV. I do like the battery life and the Edge is neat but not a make-or-break thing with me.

    Is there a store nearby where you could pick each one up and play a little with it?

    I've actually heard that the pixel has a top notch camera. Basically point and click and get great shots. That's one of the selling points for me. I have played with each one. They all seem decent. The pixel was extremely smooth and is a straight android experience. It's also the most expensive at this point.

    Oh, my mistake. Yeah, price is always a problem. The only reason I went with the phone I got is because I got a stellar deal on it.

    If you've been rocking your Note 3 all thIs time Chillout2010 just wait for the new LG. No stylus but hot processor camped to what you're used to.

    I'm all excited for a new phone. Not sure if I want to wait to see how the G6 performs. It looks good on LG'S site but who knows what it will be like in real life.

    Maybe a little biased because I have been using the LG v20 for several months and LOVING IT. Just my three cents worth with inflation.
  10. Not one you mentioned ...

    I use the Motorola Droid Turbo 2 ... shatterproof screen ... 21mp camera. Motorola cameras for years had the reputation for being the worst. This is the best phone camera I have ever used.

    Moto Z Force. It's bigger than my last Droid, but it really does have great performance. I got it for half price, which pushed me over the edge. Otherwise I might have gotten the Pixel.

    I still have not made the switch. Starting to think I'm going to preorder the G6 unless I see some major offerings from samsung on the s8+.
