    Default Lurker needs help! Please!

    Hey guys!

    First of all this is an amazing community/forum. I have been "lurking" here since I got my first EVO years ago.

    Anyways I shattered my s2 screen last night

    I am able to use my mother in laws upgrade however whatever phone I choose will have to last me at LEAST a year. Also, I am tight on money so my options are limited to the free upgrades on Sprint.

    I have been considering the EVO LTE or the Optimus G (I think thats what its called?)

    Which of these phones would you guys suggest? Will both have ample support (updates etc) for the next year?


    I know I am a newbie but any advice is very much appreciated!!!

    IMO - my choices in order -

    1. Wait for Nexus 5 and see what it is and if it will be compatible with your carrier.
    2. LG G2
    3. Note 3
    4. S4

    Nexus is always the best when it comes to future-proofing yourself.

    money is tight? since you have to keep this phone for 1-2 years i would find a way to pinch crap and save up the money and buy a good phone. if you go with "free" you may regret it. another option is prepaid - have you thought of leaving Sprint and going to AT&T GoPhone for $60/Month and taking the savings and buying a Nexus direct from Google?

    good luck!

    Welcome. I don't have experience with either of those phones, but on paper the Optimus G looks slightly better.

    I have to agree with the above poster though...it might be worthwhile to pinch a few pennies and get a newer phone model, or you might spend a year or more living with a disappointing phone.

    Welcome to Android Central. While I have an S4 and love it, I'd also recommend the Note 3 and LG G2 if the size isn't too much. These are superphones with really sliq features that should last you more than just a year.


    Note 8.0
    Live long and prosper.

    If you can squeeze some money out Amazon is offering the HTC One for $49 for new customers and upgrades.

    http://www.amazon.com/HTC-One-Silver...idcentral00-20

    Follow the instructions and select a plan to see the price.

    Htc one for 49.99 at Amazon sounds like a good deal! Don't skimp out on a free low-end phone... you will regret it... I did the same thing back in the day and lived with it (but it sucked)
