Question

Get a phone, or wait.

by Kontour / November 16, 2012 7:46 AM PST

So I've been looking at getting a new phone, and some of the ones I'm considering are

Samsung Galaxy S3, Nexus 4, Note 2

But then some new upcoming phones are catching my eye, like the Droid DNA (or HTC Deluxe), and other 5" 1080p devices which are rumoured to come.

The problem is, each one has its ups and downs, like battery life, fast updates for Android, processor, etc.

Any suggestions as to which phone to get, and if I should wait or not?

Like the previous response to your post, things are going to change all the time just as fast as the ink dries on you new two year contract. Several things to consider.

1) try a future proof your phone needs at least a year
2) carrier
3) data
4) is being in with cool high on your list
