I am out of contract from Verizon. This is going to be my first smartphone. I want a smartphone that has good battery life. I am planning to use the phone for making phone calls, sending texts, search internet for information, gps, whatsapp, viber. I WONT use the smartphone as an entertainment device, facebook, twitter and other silly functions. Prefer iPhone but Android phone will also work. I dont want to spend more than 150-200 bucks.
