    Please add punctuation, not trying to be mean it just is to hard to understand you.

    Anyway I suggest the nexus it is simply the best that I have used or the Droid DNA or HTC one or just wait for the S4.
    lol sorry OP so many good phones out there, I couldn't tell you what's best.

    I just switched from BlackBerry to Android a week ago. I'm using the HTC One X+ on AT&T. I love the phone and all the apps, but I have had some OS issues. Phone freezing and apps stopping. Had to restart to fix. Not sure but maybe it's because I've been testing loads of app's. Once I have the app's I want I'll do a hard reset and start clean. HTC is very easy to get a hold of and extremely helpful.

    One thing I missed (which you might also) coming from iOS was Badge Notifications (those little red #'s on Apps indicating pending Notifications).
    There's plenty of Apps that do it for SMS / Calls / Gmail but IMO that's not enough.

    Personally once having them on iOS I found myself really missing them natively on Android...so here's how to achieve it--> http://forums.androidcentral.com/sho...d.php?t=199709

    You mean at the top of the StatusBar like the current iOS (and WP7/8)?
    Yup, I use "StatusBar+"--> https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...android.wp7bar to achieve that.

    Until the Galaxy SIV comes out, you can get a GNex used pretty cheap and it is a great phone if it weren't for the battery life.

    The phones are getting larger now and honestly, there isn't much worthwhile that's small. I have the Note2 and its the best. It fits in my pockets but I use NY purse. Lol. We don't have nexsus. I recommend going into the store and playing with them. We can recommend lots to you but it boils down to what you want and need. Good luck.

    O boy, you have a lot of options. There are so many phones available now that are incredible. Since your on Verizon, I recommend DNA, G-note 2, or wait for S4. I dont think you could go wrong with Razr/Maxx HD or S3 either, they are just a little older but still more than capable.

    after the s4 release i figured out that i like a solid phone the moto is the closest to the iphone in feel. i remember the samsung is still high grade plastic. i think that i am going to get the maxx hd. i have been using the razr m but the battery has been killing me more then i thought. i am not satisfied with iphone nore the razr m, one day i will find the perfect phone. unless somone can say buy this phone and u will be happy the search will continue
