    I'm getting ready to upgrade. Im a prepaid user and will be buying a at&t phone for use with cricket. I think I've settled on the g2 based on a few things:

    Good price ($230 unlocked and brand new)
    quick and responsive
    good screen
    good battery
    runs most recent IS

    Im coming from a galaxy s3 so I'm sure it will be a massive upgrade but I just like to hear from others before I take the plunge on a me gadget.

    I do things like social media apps,internet browsing, and playing simply games nothing to intense, editing school work on the go, and lots of picture taking of my kiddo

    I think that will be a good upgrade if price is a major factor. I would say go ahead and get it.

    My mom got the Nokia lumia 1320. Big beautiful screen, better in sunlight than my note3, AMAZING battery life, very good camera. In your price range. Only thing is, what they call, the app gap. It's a windows 8.1 phone, not as many apps as android, but all the main things like social media. Did I mention a BIG beautiful 6" screen...lol.
    Just thought i would mention it.

    The G2 has a really good camera even though it is a little older, the software running it is awesome. I user mine similar to your use and haven't had any problems, no lag, no "stuttery" app launches. The Wi-Fi has a really good range, better than any other android I've used. (Compared to multiple Galaxys, Moto X 2014, and a Nexus 5) I bought this new for about the same price on Amazon. I was tired of the horrible battery life on my Nexus 5, this blows it out the water. And with the update to Lollipop, it runs even smoother. The buttons on the back do take some getting used to, but it's a much better lay out when you get used to it. Double tap to unlock makes it usable when on a mount or dock. Go for it you won't be disappointed, I definitely wasn't.

    Thanks all! I'm definitely not a power user just want something that will run well and keep me happy for a couple of years. I'm truly pretty happy with my galaxy s3 but have got to get away from the spring network.

    i have had it and hated it
    plastic, feels cheap imo
    the camera isn't actually that good, especially in the dark because it smears lights a lot in comparison to my friend's S4
    the back button really is quite gimmicky really
    the double tap doesn't really work
    the vibration isn't great either, very weak
    ringtones and notifications are stupid (though you can change them, but still)
    the actually software itself looks very similar to samsung's. Not much originality.

    I have never had a problem with the double tap feature.
