I ended up getting the G2 and I'm totally in love. No regrets at all.

FWIW... I replaced my Rezound with the LG G2 on Friday. I couldn't be happier, I was originally concerned with the size at first, that it might be just a little too big, but after using it for several days now I have had no issues using anything in it one handed, if it was any bigger at all, I am pretty sure it would be in the realm of not usable with only one hand.

I forgot how much crap VZW throws into these devices, since I haven't been on a stock subsidized device for some time... Haven't rooted yet, but sure have disabled a bunch of junk.

So basically I am saying, one more vote for the G2 being a good Rezound replacement, it is a REALLY nice phone... And now that @Snuzzo has one and has started some deving on that platform, I am even more glad I went this way.

@acejavelin

Yeah the size was my concern too but for using the extended battery I'll take the longer and wider vs thicker. I really really enjoy this platform. Coming from the Rezound is like a no brainer really, its like 3x a jump in everything. Last night I looked at my screen on stats and here I had 1hr 30mins screen on with 90% battery left. That's near a full stock battery on the Rez for my use.

I can get 2 days with pretty high use. Max I have hit was 4 days, but I didn't use it much. The LGG2 is great.

Couldn't you get ANY Verizon smartphone for $350~$400? Just activate a new service contract and terminate it, pay the ETF, and keep the device?

I was actually striving for a larger device myself... I went for the Motorola Droid Maxx and I've had it for about a month now. The battery life is absolutely stunning, as I can get about 9 hours screen on time before it starts limping along in terms of power. I love having AOSP out of the box as well; If I was buying something else, probably the LG G2 or the HTC One, I'd have to root and ROM it out of the box which is crazy. Motorola has gotten stock right this time!

Not for me. I don't have credit, and my parents wouldn't risk theirs.

Gotcha... but for future reference, contrary to popular belief that canceling your contract will have a negative effect on your credit rating, this will not hurt your credit score provided you handle it right. http://budgeting.thenest.com/cancell...ore-20233.html

But you do need that initial credit to get the phone, and I understand that isn't possible for everyone.

Hey, I'm working on it. Lol. I just don't have credit, its not bad credit. I pulled out my first loan, and I have a sudo credit card (charging me to use my own money, and reporting it to the agencies). I guess you are right with that, but I'm sure it makes Big Red unhappy lol.
