Hi,
It's that time of year again when all the new phones will start rolling out.
Please use only this thread to discuss devices other than the Sprint S3 or to compare them and your upgrading options.
Thank you for your cooperation

Either the Note 3 or the HTC max. Starting to get bored with touchwiz though.

Probably the pink note 3, I've only had black or white phones, maybe it's time for an exotic color for a phone. Lmao probably the only one amongst my friends that will have a pink phone.

Man you guys seeing the buzz on the Nexus 5? I think that's where it's at...

It supports 7 LTE bands - including TM's, AT&T's, and Sprint's! GSM & CDMA. nearly 5" 1080p screen, but in a body smaller than the nexus 4.

A 2300mah battery might be a deal breaker for me.

Note 3 as soon as my contract is up in February. There should be some sweet ROMs by then too.

*edit* Since Sprint decided to nerf the Note 3 with single band LTE, I'll be waiting for something else. I'm so glad Dazed has revived the Wicked Sensations ROM as I will be on thr SGS3 until next May.

I have to make a decision on what I'm going to do. I would like the Note 3, but my contract isn't up till August. I really don't want to stay with Sprint if the LTE in my area, 15-20 minutes from downtown St. Louis MO on the IL side, is going to be as bad as it is. I can get 4G LTE in Edwardsville IL fine however in Granite City IL, where I live, and some other areas I'm not getting it or it is hit and miss. I have been in the middle of it and still not been able to get it or not be able to stay connected to it. If they are not done in the are and it gets better I will keep the service till then and hold off till the Note 4 and keep my S3 as a backup. If they are done and this is the best it is going to get I'm going to T-Mobile. So it is stay till my contract is up, pay the ETF or try to get out of the ETF and hand over my S3. If I stay till my contract is up to switch then again I might as well hold off till the Note 4. Also if I go to T-Mobile and they're service is bad then I might as well drop them, pay full price for the phone and go with Straight Talk for the 45 a month. Only issue with that is now I don't have a warranty and if something happens to the phone I have to buy a new one at full price.

I was all excited for the Galaxy Gear, but after seeing it and thinking about it when I have been reading all the stuff on the Pulse reader I'm thinking I wont get it. I would like a smart watch, but none of them are causing me to want to buy them. I thought the Gear would be it, but it wasn't. I guess I will hold out to see what Google comes out with. I'm sure it will be stock Android that is made for a watch, and probably be called Nexus something or something Nexus. However I'm not having high expectations for it like I did with the Gear.

The last thing that was to be announced the other day that I was wanting to hear about was the camera from Sony. The price seems a little high to me for both and I'm not sure if I'm wanting it just because it is new tech to play around with. The price and the fact that if I'm going to carry that around and a phone I might as well just take a camera with me.

I'm trying to decide between the note 3 and the g2. I like the big screen and expandable storage and battery of the note 3. But the g2 has a better camera and triband lte so that it will match all future upgrades that sprint does to its network.

Which would you all choose.

Definitely Nexus 5. I miss the clean uncluttered feel of the nexus line. Last time I had a nexus device was back the the Nexus S came out.

Has anyone looked in to the sprint one up program yet? If so how exactly does it work?
