Deciding on a phone
I've had the Evo 4G for about 2 years now, and I'm just about deciding to get a new phone. Definitely not a Sprint phone again, Verizon or AT&T. I also want something that's future proofed- my Evo can't run most of today's games in any playable way, it freezes, randomly restarts, has a decayed battery, and displays a loading screen when I tap the home button.
I've been looking at the Droid DNA, which looks like a really nice phone and seems like it'll last(they probably won't be going past quad core phones for awhile, and 2 gbs of RAM should keep it smooth at least until I get off my contract. I think I won't use 16 gbs(I have 8 on my phone now), but you never know- I haven't been able to download a lot of apps because of how slowly they run.
However, I'm beginning to have doubts. First off, the M7, the new rumored HTC phone, which might have a bit more storage and battery life. Then, of course, CES and Mobile World Congress 2013 aren't too far off. So here's my question- should I spring for the Droid DNA, or should I wait for another phone with better battery life and specs? I don't want to wait with my Evo for much longer- but I also don't want to watch CES and see a phone with better specs than the DNA after I've gotten it.
I don't want a phablet. 5 inches is the upper limit(and only because it really has the best specs right now)
I use my phone to browse the web a lot, play music, etc.
I don't want a phone like the Evo- nice at first, then dying as my contract nears the end(PS, what happened to kickstands on phones? That is legit the coolest feature on the Evo, and would actually be useful with a larger phone like the DNA.) :P
