Some where along the a way I began to obsess with Android and Google at large.

This has lead to me keep very close tabs on nearly every tech development and since I bored the shit out of everyone in real life now I'm going bore the shit out of you.

Here are a couple topics I'm going throw out there for suggestions
1. I can now type ridiculous shit into Google search and it will generate amazing results
Type "My Purchases" bam, list of everything I've bought with quick links to the shipping info

"My Events" boom, calendar agenga

Google has become a search engine of my life and that is amazing

2. I'm buying a used Galaxy Nexus to replace my POS Droid X

3. Don't ever buy a phone directly from a carrier store

I don't really even like hearing about it or reading about it

ahahahahahahahahahaha.

I have a droid 4 because I hate typing on the god damn touchscreen. Unfortunately nobody makes the slide out keyboards anymore so I'm thinking about moving to a galaxy note so I can just use the stylus to write stuff.

Unfortunately, my wife has vowed to call me a huge dork with a giant flat phone if I get it so I'll probabaly just get an S4.

I don't have a smart phone. I have a generic phone that makes calls and sends texts and does little else. It was free.

Ting sponsors some of the podcasts I listen too.

Assuming the hosts aren't dirt bags then they're pretty high on it.

I don't think they subsidize phones so the 650$ for an S4 might be a bit pricy

Ironically you may need to get a black berry.
I know a couple people that have Notes and they pretty much love them, although that could be an automatic defense mechanism. If your willing to carry something ginormous around you could try the Cheap Table as an ultra cheap phone experiment.

Also the note 3 is supposed to come out in a month or two.

Your googleness is scaring me.

But yeah, the initial cost for the phone will be tough, but from what I can tell i'll make that money up in the phone bill very quickly and in the period of a contract, save a shitload of money. Seems like the only downside is taking that initial hit.

This is really just the tip of my google iceburg

I would also give serious thought to the HTC One as well, is reviewing very well and HTC packed slightly less bull shit into it so it runs faster.

Yea? I really don't know much about phones, but since I need a new one and S4 is just coming out and it's got lots of hype, I was just gonna get it basically for those reasons. HTC one is comparably good?

HTC One is by all accounts excellent. It's reviewing above the S4 across ther interwebs ( lets say 8 stars vs. 9 stars)

They're very similar under the hood, HTC just has some mechanical advantages

HTC
Unibody Aluminum Shell
Front Facing Stereo Speakers
4 Mega Pixel low light camera

People generally don't love HTC's android skin, and Samsung loads theirs up with lots of ridiculous software options, but yeah very close either way.

basically Samsung markets the shit out of the S4

I have an HTC Inspire. It freezes on me a lot. I am thinking it might be a battery problem because that is when I notice it freezing the most so I sprung for an extended battery to see if the problem resolves. So far so good.

Also I've damn near broken every case I've ever had for it (including the Otterbox Defender series) even though I *never* drop the damn thing so if anyone has any suggestions for a non-POS phone case, I'd love to hear it.

And I am a retard at texting on a touch screen. My personal dictionary is filled with gibberish.

I have a Note 2, and it is awesome. Yeah, it looks huge, but it fits in my pocket, fits in my hand, and the screen lets me watch movies. Plus the SD card slot, and the stylus are just bonuses.

I have fat fingers and I miss the feedback that comes with a real button (it slows down my typing considerably). I tried the "buzz everytime I punch something" option but that was really annoying, killed my battery, and still wasn't the same tactile feedback.

ok fuck it my phone spent last night rebooting itself at random and waking us up with it's stupid DROID sound which is literally impossible to get rid of without rooting the phone and it's so fucked up for so many reasons that i'm finally ready to get a new one.

I wanna get HTC One and use Ting. You said earlier not to ever buy from a provider? Why not? I don't see it for cheaper anywhere else https://ting.com/devices/buy/htc-one

I have had an Optimus V since 2011. The thing has a removable/replaceable battery that makes it perfect for camping trips or long car trips where some fuckass is hogging the 12V.

Also I've dropped it like a million times, the cat pissed on it once and I carried it in my pocket during a rainstorm on a mountain hiking trip, it still works without any issues. The thing is indestructible. If only it were 4G, then I would never think about replacing it.

That price is great, I'm not sure if it's locked/unlocked so it may not be possible to take to any network (except probably Sprint, if for some reason you have a need to change carriers)

I was talking more about the subsidized contracts with carriers, 3rd party re-sellers almost always have lower prices (Amazon, Dell ect...)
