I haven't been keeping up with phone news since I'm not due for an upgrade for a few more months
But my gf just dropped her iphone4s and it completely shattered the screen on both front and back and the phone won't even turn on
It may be repairable but she needs a phone right away so we're looking at new phones right now
She has an upgrade available on verizon and is wanting to switch to an android device
So give me some input please

The LG G2 looks like a performance winner but the button placement seems like a huge pain in the ass
S4 and htc one already seem a bit dated
Note 3 looks awesome but she will have to see if she likes the phablet size


[bimmerapp]
since i see you post in the photography section, then color reproduction is important to you. go with the HTC One or LG G2.

or you can wait for the nexus 5, which i think will get the same screen as the LG G2.

Girls love the note 3. At first she'll be like Omg it's too big for me... I'm not sure about this. But then she'll be oh yes, I love it.

or the apple fanboys since they specifically target apple. the last part of the article mentions the S4 is the overall "best" phone, but it sounds like they still recommend motorola over samsung

so they recommended the droid mini, droid maxx and droid ultra.. three phones that got bad reviews across the board.

id rather go with moto x and htc one. or any of the samsungs if the screens dont bother you.
