Up for an upgrade in February!
I really love my Photon but I am up for an upgrade so I might as well use it right? Ha.
Now... my ideal choice would be the Nexus 4, but the fact that it has no removable storage is a killer for me...well that and the fact we do not have it with Sprint. I have wanted the Galaxy Nexus for a long time but I used to have the Nexus S 4G and the battery was HORRIBLE. My friend has the Galaxy Nexus and said the battery was just as horrible and like the Nexus S 4G it died really quick and took hours and hours to charge. The Photon Q well... although I like my Photon I dont want a phone with a slideout Keyboard because I never used my keyboard sideways. And hey maybe since the Galaxy Nexus is fairly old it might be even cheaper than it is now around February right?
My requirements are: Decent battery (as great as it is on my Photon 4G, or however you guys view it but I think the battery life is great), and for me to be able to charge my battery fairly quickly when it dies. On my old Nexus S 4G it took like 3-4 hours to fully charge from a dead battery, on my Photon 4G it takes around an hour and a half or so. Battery is a biggie for me and I am not too fond of buying extended batteries though I am not against carrying multiply batteries of the same capacity.
Camera. This is also important to me. I take alot of pictures and it is one of the reasons I am hesitant on grabbing the Galaxy Nexus. I heard the Galaxy Nexus camera is horrible. I want a good camera comparable to my Photon 4G. Even though the Photon 4G is old it takes great pictures.
Screen Resolution. I am not very tech savvy but one thing I noticed is that I like the Colors in the Nexus S 4G and the Galaxy Nexus as opposed to the screen on the Motorola Photon 4G. The Screen on our Photons looks bland and almost lifeless....so I would like a decent screen as well.
Not much for requirements ey? That is all pretty much I want from a phone. I dont really care for upgrades and whatnot but I mean I wouldnt mind a phone with ICS ( I dont even need Jelly Bean) my standards are pretty low but that should make it easier to decide on what to get no?
Since I know alot of you are way more savvy on phones I ask you guys. Obviously the better the deal for a phone the better, I much rather pay the least amount possible. And does anyone know how Best Buy Mobile works? I noticed they have deals often but what would be the benefits of getting a phone through them or upgrading through them?
