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?

Also, I think Verizon has our contract over Feb. 24 but isn't there a new thing where you can upgrade sooner? Thanks.
Sorry for derailing the conversation.

If you're thinking about making the switch from iOS to Android, I would recommend taking a look at the new HTC One vs. the Samsung.

And as jd previously mentioned, changing to Verizon Edge will give you access to phone upgrades but will negatively affect your monthly bill.

Thats what you said.

So please explain what you meant because I'm pretty sure what you are trying to say is that most other companies don't want you to buy their products.

Don't let me interrupt... continue. Please.
Please make sure to be intellectually honest and quote the ENTIRE post, please.

All of the "pros" you mentioned are not only had by Samsung but by a great many other Android device manufacturers. Removable batteries and additional storage aren't unique to the Galaxy S.

The big difference is that a lot of those other manufacturers aren't asking you to invest not only in Google's ecosystem (a fact of life with Android) but ALSO with Samsung, because Samsung wants to use their phones to hook you into buying Samsung TVs, Samsung BR players, Samsung PCs, and everything else.
It's quite obvious that I wasn't talking about Apple or Microsoft, so we can leave them out of the conversation.

When I open a photo gallery on my Droid X2, it doesn't automatically broadcast that picture to any Samsung DNLA-enabled device. The Galaxy S3/S4 do.

When I watch a Youtube via on my Droid X2 and show it to a friend, it doesn't pause. The Galaxy S3/S4 do.

These are just a couple of examples of extra "features" that Samsung has added that aren't necessary unless you're fully invested in the Samsung ecosystem.

The fact is no phone is perfect, my recommendation is find the phone that is comfortable in your hand and in your pocket or wherever it may be and one that has good reviews from multiple independent sources. I personally weigh battery life as a very important feature. I don't care if you think you have the most awesome phone on the planet if it's dead then what does it matter? And I'm not talking about putting a mophie case on it either, that's cheating.

I haven't had a big issue with the iPhone 5 but battery life on the 4 was TERRIBLE.

Battery life on the Droid X2 is better than any phone I've had but it's my work phone and doesn't have a ton of apps on it.

Chiefs Pantalones: If you're looking to switch, just be aware that you're moving from one ecosystem to another. So if you use things like iTunes Match, Photo Stream or any of the other iOS related glue you'll be starting over.

I believe the S5 has a 16mp camera.

Well, for some that's a potential drawback. Standardization isn't necessarily a bad thing.

Thank you guys.

I'm not too knowledgable on android and iPhone app stuff. What is the difference between the two if any at all? Do they have the same apps, etc?

This is INCREDIBLY stupid. 81% of all Android devices are on version 4. Yes they are split between versions 4.0,4.1,4.2, etc but they are all pretty similar. Saying only 3.5% are on the current version is misleading as ****. (btw it is 5.3% not 3.5%) I notice you don't mention the stats for iOS 7.1 but instead lump it in with iOS 7.0

As someone who develops for both platforms I can tell you that it makes almost no difference if someone is on Android 4.1 or 4.4. Just like iOS 7.0 and 7.1

EDIT: Oh and the 19% of the Android users on old versions are cheap knock off tablets and such. It's damn hard to find anyone in the US with a phone that isn't on version 4

The "fragmentation" argument is all sorts of stupid these days.

Almost any app you can find on one platform you'll be able to find on the other (or a similar one that functions the same). The biggest difference these days is that Android apps tend to be free while iOS are pay. Of course there is always a trade off there as well.
