    I'm starting a new job in a couple of weeks. Got no contract and can pick whatever plan and phone I want through Verizon. Company will pay the deal. Tell me what I should get. I mostly play games and listen to music on it, actually calling people and being productive is fairly low on the priority list.

    Kthxbi

    iPhone isn't that great but I hate Samsung since flip phone days so I wouldn't go with that popular one that people say is better than the iPhone. If you have nothing against Samsung try that one.

    Motorola Razr Maxx HD.

    Built like a tank and the battery lasts FOREVER. The back is kevlar. I've had it for 2 months and don't use a case and there's not a mark on it.

    I probably should have said everyone in my family has either an iPhone 4s or 5. They are saying I need a 5, but a 5 seems kinda boring.


    Please don't hate me.

    Nokia lumia 920 is a pretty awesome phone. You can make gifs with the camera.

    the 5 is thinner and lighter than the 4s, and the LTE on it blows away 3G

    i read earlier this week that Google got rid of the Moto stuff.

    Edit: I see they sold off part of it:

    "Google is selling Motorola Mobility's TV set-top business for $2.35 billion"
