    Hi all,

    Verizon Galaxy S3 owner here - off contract now with unlimited data. Interested in switching over, but unclear on what I should do.

    My options are basically a 32 GB 5 for ~400ish vs ~300 for a 32gb 5s on contract.

    I don't take a ton of photos but I do want the ones I take to look good, so the new camera features seem nice but not essential. Also not much of a gamer on my phone. Is there anything else the 5s that really makes it worth it in my case? Battery life is important, but it doesn't seem dramatically changed.

    So is it worth getting the newer phone for a little cheaper but moving off of unlimited and back on contract with a 2GB plan? Thoughts?

    Moving off unlimited data you mean? Hmm, I personally wouldn't want to sacrifice that. Depends on your usage I guess.

    Mostly my usage is minimal, however I have been traveling and the last 2 months has been 3 and 8 GB. This isn't normal, though, usually it hovers around 2 GB.
