Only thing I want from the one is the camera. Looks pretty awesome. Other than that, htc is more fail than innovation recently, they need to do something awesome to turn the tide.

Since I only buy phones when upgrade time rolls around, the next phone isn't for 2 more years, and by then the tech will have jumped way far away than I can think.

So the GN2 will be it for quite a while.

Nah, ill be waiting on the note 4 in two years maybe lol. The note 2 is a beast. Honestly in terms of real world use what more could you be looking for in a phone? Our phone literally never lags, has lte coming, great design, great community etc.... I mean honestly what is the point. I understand in the past it might have been worth the upgrade to get a phone with "less lag" or "better battery" or "better screen" but I dont see that here. I have the means to upgrade every week if I wanted to but im not blinded by spec sheets and hype. My note 2 is a monster in all aspects of a phone and until something actually revolutionary comes out (second iteration of google glasses maybe), this will be my phone for the foreseeable future.

I agree with others who say this phone is plenty for the time being. I cant imagine other phones allowing me to do half the stuff I do with this phone.

that being said, my girlfriend has an upgrade coming in just a few months, and I'm considering applying pressure towards the new blackberry OS. from what ive seen on youtube videos, it looks pretty neat. all its lacking is android apps lol

Same feeling here. This is the best phone I've ever used over the past 5 years. Nothing touches this beast. It's f**ukin awesome! I'm gonna try holding on to this for atleast a year, if not more. The only thing that has peaked my interest is the upcoming Motorola x phone.

I don't know yet. I'll see what this year holds. The HTC One is tempting and ticks a few of the right checkboxes (aluminum build, front-facing stereo speakers and integrated IR port, to name a few) but I think the likelihood of me going for that phone is slim. The SGNII has spoiled me quite a bit.

If I had to guess, the SGS4 would have a 5" or so 1080p display, 12 or so MP camera and [hopefully] come in 32 and 64 GB versions with MicroSD support and would be a prime candidate for my next phone...until the Galaxy Note 3 is released LOL.

I agree... its a big update, coming from the S2 or similar phone, coming from the N2, not so much. 5" screen, granted, higher res but at the distance we hold our phones i doubt you'll see much of a difference, same size ram as the N2, no S-pen...

Speculated, 13 MP camera is nice tho....if it does incorporate it

Its just not that impresive to me yet. But if u got the means to upgrade every 4 to 6 months then more power to you....

I'll wait for bigger changes


The camera "upgrade" isn't much better unless the lens is a wider scope. Without that differences will be dismal
