So right now I'm on an Unlocked phone so i'm only getting 2G <_< . So i'm buying a new phone to indulge in the LTE network my carrier provides ( Rogers) , So here are my options:
1.Samsung Galaxy S III™ 16GB
2.Sony Xperia™ Ion
3.HTC One™ X
4.Samsung Galaxy Note
5.Samsung Galaxy S II LTE™
Anyone know which one out of these phones is the best?

With the recent stuff between apple and samsung, samsung may have to recall their new models before releasing them, so keep that in mind. I don't really have much experience with any of them but I know a couple of guys that really like the HTC One.

Well do you have an LTE plan?
Otherwise getting an LTE phone is worthless.

Galaxy S III or the Lumia 900. I'd say the Lumia 900 is the best phone on the market right now. Or wait for WP8 to come out in a couple months.

Rogers does not offer the Lumia 900.
I'd got Samsung Galaxy S III or II.

I have the Galaxy S II in 4G and its awesome, the S III is even better. However if I could go back, I would totally get the Nokia Lumia 900. That phone is INSANE! You really should check it out... I don't know if its available for Verizo nthough...

It's not, sadly, or else I would have it Posted Image But he's looking on Rogers which does happen to have it! I'm really looking forward to the WP8 releases on Verizon.

I'm telling you, windows phone is where it's at! WP8 is about to come out and it should be epic.

Okay I'm reviving this thread lol

Right now i'm between S3 and Razr HD LTE and I'm thinking Razr...


same processors , software ( 4.0) , screen type ( AMOLED HD 780p) , internal memory (16 GB) , LTE

S3 screen is .1 in larger

Better battery on Razr

Razr is supposed to be more rugged . gorilla glass, kevlar , waterproofing

Razr is 50$ less

What do you guys think?

At this point I'd just go use both and pick whichever feels best in your hand.

Keep in mind that the GS3 just got Jellybean (razr will get it too though), and the GS3 has a far superior camera. Other than that the screen quality is the only difference but at this point you're choosing between awesome and fantastic.


If it were my decision, I'd wait for Motorola and Samsung to reveal their nexus phones in the next couple months. Either you could get one of those, or you'll see the razr and gs3 prices drop - win win.
It's all about the game and how you play it, All about control and if you can take it
All about your debt and if you can pay it, It's all about pain and who's gonna make it
