Default Verizon Phones

What does the new Droid XX with the long battery life do that the Samsung S4 wont? I seem to be down to those 2. I know the S4 has a really good camera?

Do not buy a phone now. Wait until the new models are unveiled in April.

Verizon also sells the HTC One, which is rated by some reviewers as the best Android phone. I bought one on Amazon for $29.99 (which requires a 2yr commitment at Verizon) which compares to $199.99 at Verizon (also a 2yr commitment). The additional Otter case cost more than the phone. Verizon charged $35 to set it up. Very happy with it.

You can also buy other phones on Amazon for Verizon, or other carriers.

I was almost at the desperate end for a phone, my razr battery lasted like 5 minutes and it started running slower and slower. I Dont really use a phone heavily, so I was just looking for something functional with good battery life. Walked out with a Droid Ultra and havent been dissapointed. Battery will last atleast a full 24 hours with light use. Does the job. The Galaxy is def. the best on the market though. It runs you 150 more than the ultra with a contract extension though.

I love my S4, but if that other phone has a better battery life, i'd seriously consider it. My S4's battery SUCKS. I used to have an iPhone, and it blew my S4 out of the water with battery life. I can fully charge my phone at night, and when I wake up, it's already down 10% when I haven't touched it. I've googled and fiddled to no end and i've come to the conclusion either I just have bad luck or this phone just doesn't have a good battery. Plus, as cool as all the little features are, I can honestly say I turn most of them off because they're annoying or useless.

LG G2 is by far the best phone available! Many people get 50+ hrs from a charge, mine is closer to 40. The phone is lightening fast and has a great camera as well. Check it out, you won't be disappointed!

Go with an s4 mini, only about a half inch smaller than the s4 does everything the same and its $150 cheaper with 2 year commitment. Battery life on mine lasts around 12-15 hours with a lot of use.

The extra features suck battery life. My phone last from 430 in the morning until 8 or 9 pm. Making 20 calls a day average, Internet for probably 1.5 hours a day, I do hit many wife spots during the day though. Either your phone is messed up or you have extra crap running

Where are these "wife" spots you speak of hitting? I would like to partake in this.

You guys have given me good insight. I can't do a contract though. I have a contract through work. I just am in need of an upgrade. So take those prices out of consideration.

I haven't even thought about the LG ZZAndrewst?
