I have an HTC Rezound from Verizon. This replaced my original Motorola Droid. Ya- I'm an Android guy. The Rezound doesn't get much press, but take a look at the specs. It's got an incredible screen with a pixels per inch ratio that compares to the iPhone retina display. It comes with some nice Dr. Dre iBeats headphones (can resell on eBay if you don't need them). It has a removable back to get at the removable battery. Several power options include an extended capacity battery with a corresponding deeper back that unfortunately makes the phone thicker, and a wireless recharging back and the associated recharging pad. The camera performs very well. Ice Cream Sandwich is rumored to arrive "any day now". It has a dual core processor, 4G, 1GB RAM, 16GB flash memory, microSD slot. Battery life isn't great, but that's typical of most new large screen, 4G phones. I was trying to hold out for the Samsung Galaxy Nexus last fall, but it kept getting delayed, and they kept announcing aspects of it that I didn't like: pentile display, no microSD slot, plastic build. I did the research and chose the Rezound. No regrets.

I looked at the Nexus and the Droid Razr, wasn't impressed by either one. The specs on the Rezound are

quite good and the trend of NO removable battery is an issue. When I go to meetings I burn through a

battery, if I paid attention I guess they would last longer. As always, the best phone is the one that

does the job for you.

      $0.01 for Nexus 6 via Costco online on a 2 year contract for new customers and upgrades.

      It even comes with
      - Nexus 6 Phone(Black 32GB)
      - FREE Bluetooth headset
      - FREE Accessory Bonus Pack** including a dock and car charger
        (**Contents of bonus pack vary by device. Also available in warehouse.)
      - Only for Verizon for this deal.
       
      Yes, you need a Costco Membership for this deal.
      I do really wish I could get this deal with different carrier(AT&T). I already tried my AT&T representative - they can't match.
      Yes, the price is too extremely low to match.
       
      Hope it helps, specially Dave who is still on Verizon, right?

      At the end of Meetup 2013 on Saturday (yesterday), we all trundled over to the Microsoft Store and a few of the guys picked up some $99 no-contract Lumia 520 phones, and at least one person picked up the Lumia 1020. I wisely picked up a Lumia 928 for $0 and received a $50 gift card which I then put down on a wireless charger, essentially getting both for free with a 2-yr Verizon contract. Sweet phone. Sweet deal. Plenty of slaps on the back from my compadres. Life = good.
       
      I fully charged it overnight. At 7 am this morning, I pulled the phone from the charger, and jumped on a jet headed back to Maine. The phone was off part of the time (probably 45 minutes total) and in airplane mode for ~3 hours. By the time I arrived home the battery level was at < 10%. We're talking 7+ hours of on time where 3 hours of that saw the transceiver shut off. You'd think...
       
      In any case, we're sure not talking a full day+, or anything close to what I was hoping/expecting to see for battery life. So now I'm in a wee bit of a panic.
       
      I did see that the phone had an update. GDR2? In any event, the OS version is now at 8.0.10327.77.
       
      I'm resisting an urge to run down to the Verizon store and tear up the contract, maybe stamp my feet and carry on if necessary. I'm kinda tired and I could easily see me doing that
       
      But, I'll hold off until it's fully charged again and give it another go tomorrow. If the battery life doesn't exceed that of my tired ol' GS2 which it currently is not, it's off to the Verizon store.
       
      Ok. So there's that. Now for the head scratching stuff. There's no offical Dropbox app. Yes, I know. Skydrive. But I use Dropbox, and I want an official app. There's some snafu going on here between Nokia and Dropbox, I think, but the details don't matter to me. I wants it and I wants it now. *stomps feet*  Or I'll settle for a decent alternative suggestion?
       
      Then there's G+ Hangouts. There's no official app for that? What? Can I even do a Hangout on the 928? Still looking into that.
       
      There's no Chromecast app. Chromecast does require a phone app (or tablet app) to run it. So...
       
      People, I'm telling ya, if battery life post-update doesn't really wow me, this lovely piece of technology is going back.
       
      I'm hoping I've missed a bunch of things because the phone seems snappy and the screen is fairly beautiful. The camera and some of the included apps are pretty nice.
       
      Lines are open... haha....  (translation: 'H-hhhhhhhhhelppppppp!')

      I'm putting my iPhone 4 up on the market. It's a Verizon 16GB version. It's free and clear of a contract so all you have to do is walk into a Verizon store and get an account. Includes original box, charger, cable, and earbuds. It's about 6 months old and still under warranty.
       
      Glass is perfect. Zero scratches or scuffs. The stainless steel band around the phone does have some scuffing due to removing the bumper case.
       
      I'm only considering the sale to individuals I know here on the boards. You pay shipping to your location. $350. I have it listed on craigslist for more than this. Local pickup also allowed.
       
      PM me if you are interested.
       
      Dave
