FINALLY ABOVE the gnat line
currently looking to upgrade my Samsung Galaxy to either a Samsung Note II OR a Droid Razr Maxx HD. They both rank at the top among Verizon Users. Anyone here have any experience with either of these phones?

Pay no attention to Peepers!

I have the Note II, and it is a fantastic phone, so long as you can deal with the size of it.

The Galaxy S4 was just announced and will be out shortly.That has some very interesting features to it.

My wife and most of my siblings, parents, cousins, neighbors, old college room mate, former girlfriends, coworkers, teachers, doctor, gas station attendant, wal-mart greeters, grandparents, fuineral directors, bankers, policeman, fire fighters all have iPhones. I'm jealous that i can't get one being locked in to my inflexible plan, so i act like i don't want one, and that it doesn't bother me that others are enjoying life on the digital highway, while i'm driving an Amish buggy...but it does bother me, it bothers me greatly

I can forgive and forget all of the Apple abuse that I take, but calling my car an Amish Buggy is just unforgivable and will not be tolerated!!!!! mad mad mad

Based on my experience with Motorala's droids.... don't get the Razr.

I had the original droid and a Bionic and both were very very finiky after a few weeks. Also Moto fails to update the OS on any type of regular basis.

With my Bionic I went for months with 4g service randomly dropping. So much so that I had to turn 4g off to be able to reliably use the phone.

I used BB's for 2 years, Androids for the last 3, and just recently went to the iphone 5.... So far, so good with it.

The fact that it's not an iPhone is it's most desirable feature!

I saw that about the Galaxy S4. Don't usually go with brand new product lines - like to wait until they've been out for a while and have a history. I wonder if it can read your eye movement thru glasses?

My new Iphone keeps dropping calls. Very disappointing, I should have listened to Bim.
