After giving Samsung a try for the third time in a few years, i'm going back to Motorola. I usually trade up every 9-12 months. Edge plan here.

Used my Galaxy S2 for 4 months and I lost it. Bought a new S2 and used it for 4 months again. Then bought the iPhone 4S and used it for only 2 months. Then I bought the Galaxy S3 and used it for 1 year and 6 months . Now I am happy using my Galaxy S5 for 3 months.
