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?

Anyone else have a smartwatch?

I have a friend in the technology business up here that gave me a free Samsung Gear 2 and a Pebble.

So far, I'm using the Gear 2, and it's a bit of a novelty at this point, but I totally see how it's usefulness and integration will be in the future. Already it does have some useful functionality and integration.

Much like circa 2006 and the mainstream adoption of the smartphone started taking off.

I'm good with my regular $20 Casio.

I really don't see the purpose of the smartwatch and don't think it will ever take off. I don't need a $300 device to go on top of my $700 phone just so I don't have to reach in my pocket and see who texted me.

Was kind of hoping you were going to say that the pedometer displayed the approximate location of the nearest pedophile.

I don't really have much of an interest in one, but I do think it will take off eventually.

Will I be able to tell a HUGE difference between a HTC m8 and m7? I know the screen size difference. My previous phone has been a Galaxy S3 for the last 2 years.

The m7 is on sale at best buy for a buck. The m8 is 200 bucks.

Unless money is tight, I'm always in the boat of buying the latest when it comes to tech.

But beyond the screen size increase, the M8 has a better processor (801 vs 600), expandable storage, and the best gimmick of all with the same camera except with an added second camera that is just there to add 3D effects (basically useless beyond the "oh that's kind of cool" moment the first time you see it).

Actually surprised the M7 is even a buck at this point, it's soon to be 2 years old.

EDIT: Forgot to add that the M8 camera doesn't have OIS.

Another thing to think about is that the M7 is unlikely going to get Android L, which is suppose to be more efficient and easier on battery life and stuff.

Is the M7 the older model? Or just as new, but lesser specs
