    Default too many choices :)

    How do you decide which android phone to purchase?! Sigh,so many choices it boggles my mind. I need a place like Right Diagnosis where I put in criteria and it narrows my choices down. HAha. I've had the HTC One but didn't like the camera, loved the size tho. I'm using the bb q10 now but want apps. Is there an android phone that has a hub like feature of the BlackBerry, one place for all messages, updates and emails?

    Do you need a phone on a specific carrier?

    Welcome to Android Central! There are quite a few apps out there that can provide similar features. DashClock is one of them, with many extensions that allow you to customize what kinds of notifications you get on a lockscreen. Here's another example of a lockscreeen notification app: Lock Screen Notifications

    The S5, M8, and Note 3 have SD Card slots whereas the Moto X and G2 do not.

    If you want a smaller phone, the Moto X might be a good size.


    As for a hub-like place on Android, I can't really think of anything. Your notifications section would be the closest thing.

    Did you like the screen size of the One, or the overall size. I ask because the Moto X is the same screen size, but physically it is smaller (less bezel). The Moto camera is ok, probably a little worse than the HTC. Given your criteria, I would say S5, Note 3, or LG G2.

    Ha! You are right, way too many choices. Well, for starters, know what you want in a phone. There are many factors (i.e. size, form/shape, costs, performance, etc) that should be considered when looking for a new device. The beauty of Android is that there's basically something for everyone, so be sure to know what you need and/or want from the device when looking to upgrade.

    The G2 is looking very appealing

    Looked at phones in Verizon and looked at videos here and on YouTube and I'm one hundred percent sure I've narrowed it down to three LOL. LG G2, Droid Maxx and Samsung S4.

    I am attracted to the Maxx battery, the LG double tap and still not sure who has the best Camera.

    So yeah, I'm still muddling around.

    G2's supposed to get great battery life as well.
