Verizon is getting close (within 2 years maybe) to being able to offer voice over LTE, meaning that CDMA will become obsolete. Maybe then things can start changing for the better. Cheaper phones, no contracts, more advanced networks.

In that case I agree with what Tauce says

Pretty soon Samsung is going to own the entire ecosystem. Google is ensuring that margins stay razor thin. They're going to have to cut manufacturers in on their profits from content and advertising. A race to the bottom does not excite me.
