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 gives some interesting changes/updates. Unfortunately it also says it's going to be expensive as shit.

I've heard the small screen iPhone 6 comes out in September and the big screen comes out in December.

S4 $50
S5 $150

From what I can tell the S5 is larger, offers a little more battery life (2800 vs 2600 mAh), and has the heart rate monitor thing.

For the price, not worth it IMO.

I got the S4 plus a 2yr warranty through squaretrade for less than the cost of the S5.

anyone try republic wireless?

https://republicwireless.com/

They are offering a Moto G for $150 (no contract). Then pricing plans from $10-40.


I am cheap, and a late adopter, and have never owned a smart phone. I currently use Net 10. The trick with their pricing is that their service uses wireless connections for calls.

At this point it's pretty easy to read into the tea leaves for the iPhone because of the huge number of them that they've got to prep for launch. You'll see things start to leak out of the supply chain well in advance and we're already seeing that.

Based on the timing of things relative to last year's release an announcement and launch in late september/early october is what I would predict for this year too.

I've got an iPhone 4s with a broken lock button and a mute switch that mostly works some of the time so I'm watching this intently. I also have no hope whatsoever that they would put out a new phone around WWDC in June.

You'll probably see a major update to the Apple TV, maybe a new product category and maybe Retina class desktop displays in June. Early betas of the next version of OS X and iOS are a lock for WWDC.

My mother lost her old Razr flip phone so I bought her a Moto X.

She designed it...



When I first heard about the whole wood back shit I thought it was pretty cheesy. But, I'm not gonna lie... that's a sexy phone.

1) I'm not sure what's really new about this; the Note 8 can be used as a phone.

2) I don't think there's really a "size war" - put a chip in a tablet and it becomes a phone. The only question is what the market is for large-screen phones that are essentially tablets that can make phone calls.

Can be, but the Note 8 is marketed as a tablet and I doubt anyone bought it to be used as a phone.

This is supposedly going to be a smartphone. Unless the author is simply being ignorant and calling it what it isn't.

I would have to imagine that a "smartphone" that size would have a very limited market because there's just no easy way to carry that around. They are already pushing the boundaries of what you can fit in your pocket.
