So my Galaxy S3 is giving me problems. The SIM card slot isn't contacting the SIM card properly. Verizon will replace the phone under warranty, but I might use this opportunity to try something new. I have to use a Sideio 3500 mAh extended battery for the S3 just to get through my normal day (I suppose I'm a heavy user). It makes the S3 pretty darn bulky and awkward. Should I give the Droid Razr Maxx HD a whirl or do you think there will be something in the next 1-2 months that will have similar battery life? I'm going to presume that the S4 will have slightly better life than the S3, but certainly not equivalent to the Maxx HD. The Note 2 reportedly has very good battery life - still not quite the Maxx HD level, but it's also a very, very large device and I think it's too big for my tastes. The Note 3 is rumored to be even larger. I'm uncertain as to the battery life of the HTC One, though at this point we still don't know if Verizon will carry it (and I wont change carriers). I tend to keep phones less than a year anyway, so I'm not crushed by not buying the absolute latest model. Thoughts?
