Of course that sounds kind of pathetic, since a phone is SO personal. What is good for one person is not good for another. But, here are my requirements: 1. It has to be a Verizon phone. I switched to ATT and it was a hassle, getting bills for months after I left them. All my friends and family are on Verizon, so I just want to stay. 2. It has to have an operating system and overlay I like. I have used IOS before and I like it. I have also used Android and liked it. I didn't like the Moto X overlay, but the form of the phone was nice. 3. Price is not a factor. I usually upgrade out of boredom. Every one of my phones have been in working condition when I got rid of them. 4. Form Factor: I currently have a 5.2 inch IPS phone. I don't think I want to go bigger. 4.7 is my lower limit. I've had an M8 and it feels too big and heavy. I've had a Moto X and the form was good, but I didn't like the Moto version of Android. 5. Battery life: has to get me through a full day with average use. 6. Display: has to be bright with decent resolution. The G3 seems kind of dull to me. 7. Wireless charging: not totally necessary but if there were 2 phones, one with and one without I would take the wireless charging. I have it now and I like it. 8. Bluetooth and signal quality have to be good. The only phones I see on the horizon are possibly a Nexus 6 ( as long as it is not a 5.9 inch screen) or the Iphone 6. Although there are some decent other phones out there like the Opo or the one plus or even a new Sony, they won't be on Verizon. In the meantime, I will happily use my G2 until something better comes along.
