Time again for a new phone

So I'm eligible to upgrade my cell phone again August 1st. I currently have a Samsung Galaxy S2 through Sprint and was ready to get the S4. Now I see that LG is set to release their Optimus G2 sometime in August.

http://www.engadget.com/2013/07/09/lg-optimus-g2-leak/

I've never considered LG, but I'm intrigued by what I've read.

Has anyone else looked at this and is it worth waiting another month or so for the LG?

Also, does anyone in the KC area have any experience with Sprint's LTE 4G? Is coverage still spotty?

I'm waiting with baited breath for the Galaxy s5 to release so I can buy a post-price-drop Galaxy s4. My current phone is a Galaxy. sans s. The first one. It is dreadfully slow and a battery drain at this point to boot, but I'm a cheapskate and I've been holding out on upgrading.

If tmobile drops the no-contract price on s4's in a couple of weeks to like $500 I am THERE.

Hopefully they are better about prices than AT&T or you might be waiting a long time.

I was waiting for them to drop the HTC One M7...

32GB M8 $199.99 on contract, $640 off contract
32GB M7 $199.99 on contract, $600 off contract

I mean look at the difference. Whenever I play with a friend or family's iPhone I'm automatically annoyed at the tiny screen.I don't know why you would own one or pay more to own one if you had a choice of the Samsung products. Look at the difference

Note 3 vs iphone5

Because I don't carry a purse?

Also looking for a new phone. However I do not want a smartphone because I don't want a data plan. I know that kinda limits me but can anyone recommend a good feature phone?

Do you not like the Nexus 5? Just curious, as you apparently want to stay off contract. I can't think of a single better deal out there. And they don't jack you on it's release date and then marginally drop the price....it's been $350 since it came out last November.

iPhone 6?

I can't quite put my finger on it but that design looks awfully familiar to me. Almost like another manufacturer released a flagship with the same exact design a year ago.

I need a new phone plan actually, anyone know a company where I can get 2 nice smart phones and pay less than 100 a month..I'd honestly prefer it to be cheaper than that.

AT&T's Mobile Share plan can, if your phones are off contract and depending on how much data you want. The most you could get for under $100 would be the 2GB plan. $40 for the plan and $25 for each off contract smartphone, otherwise its $40 for each smartphone that's on contract.

my wife and I finally said '**** it' and went back to our normal phones. we were paying $180/mo for non-3G service. we shopped around, and they were all in that range. I'm sure there are a lot on here that will chime in with their cheaper plans etc, and that's fine. but we basically only had the unlimited plan.

our new plan with unlimited text and the lowest tier of data is now $85/mo.
Though, we finally realized we really didn't 'use' the smart phones for anything more than our plain slide/touch screen phones.
