Hi First time poster, long time reader here.....I've been looking for a new phone for a while now and my carrier is Verizon. I've been upgrade eligible for about a year now, and my Droid Eris is finally starting to give me problems, I think it's time to retire it and move on. I have about $100 Amazon credit to use, and I'd like to spend it towards my new phone. I think Verizon has scrapped it's "New Every Two" $50 credit, so I think I will go through Amazon rather than Verizon for the new phone. I've seen the new IPhone 5, and it seems great, but Amazon doesn't carry IPhones.....It also seems that Apple hasn't been innovative or groundbreaking, as it just is now getting 4G LTE and lacks a NFC chip or some of the other cool things phones like the Galaxy S3 have. Perhaps this is related to the passing of Steve Jobs?? Or, are other phone competitors finally catching up and surpassing Apple?? Either way, due to Amazon not supplying the new IPhone, I won't be getting it. I'm kinda over Droid phones after having my Eris, but the new Droid Razr Maxx HD has mostly everything I'm looking for in a phone. It has 4G, SUPER long battery life, and is blazing fast. Gorilla Glass & Kevlar-coated back is a nice touch, too. It even has NFC, like the Galaxy S3! But, the camera seems very subpar, and I'm really looking for a phone that will fulfill my everyday camera needs. It's shocking how grainy the pictures look from a Maxx HD even with 8 MPs!! Looks almost as bad as my Droid Eris (HTC Desire) with 5 MPs!! I'm really not open to buying a phone AND a camera when many phones have excellent cameras (see: Apple Iphones) already and I don't need a DSLR. I'm also not sure if I should hold off on getting a phone, because it seems that quad-core phones are starting to be released, and I don't know if I want to buy a phone that is already obsolete.... Which brings me to the future-proof Nexus phones.....just not sure I want the Nexus 4 which lacks 4G LTE. There was another thread below that mentioned possible Nexus phones to be released. Any chance that the others mentioned, besides the LG Optimus Nexus (Nexus 4) will actually be released?? What about the Samsung Galaxy Nexus 2?? I don't think I could resist a Sony Xperia Nexus!! So, should I buy now or wait until the new year for a new quad-core phone with a terrific camera?? The camera should at least be as good as the IPhone 5's or Xperia's....please let me know if there's any news about such a phone, or if you can aid me in my decision. Thanks!!
