What is the Best Phone for the Everyday Tech Nerd?
Like many others who flocked to the Galaxy Nexus almost two years ago, I am coming up for an upgrade this month. I have my eyes on a few different handsets: Samsung Galaxy S4, Moto X, HTC One, Motorola Maxx, and the LG G2.
I think the worst part of my decision is the fact that I am currently on Verizon. I love the service, but hate the lack of phone selection, locked bootloaders, handicapping the Galaxy Nexus, and the high price point.
What I love about my current phone:
- The ability to ROM my phone whenever I want, flash a different kernel, or add custom features that a dev just released. As such, I am a bit apprehensive in switching away from the Nexus platform.
- Interchangeable batteries (simply because it doesn't last a full day--weekends would be a huge issue w/o the swapable battery)
- Design - teardrop shape, no buttons on the front, overall clean look
What are your thoughts?
