Need EVERYONE'S Opinion, Please!

by StrypeX / March 20, 2013 4:32 PM PDT

So my phone is getting prehistoric, and my provider is offering a temporary deal to me. If I extend my contract for 1 year, I can get a free upgrade to one of about 40 phones on the list.

The problem is, as technically savvy as I am, I really don't know much about phones. Well, not nearly as much as you guys anyhow. So I've narrowed the list down to 13, using my limited knowledge and eliminating the obvious garbage. This is where I need your guys' help, and any would be greatly appreciated!

From this list of 13, I'd like for you to choose your own opinion of the best 3, and place them in order with a very short description of why it'd be a good choice.

For example:

1. Nokia Lumia 4G LTA - Extremely fast response, decent camera.
2. Samsung Brightside - Big screen size, great customization.
3. Casio GZone Commando - Easy texting, nobody else has it.

With that said, here's the list to choose from:

Pantech Breakout 4G LTE
Pantech Hotshot
Pantech Marauder 4G LTE
LG Extravert
Samsung Brightside
Samsung Galaxy Stellar 4G LTE
Samsung ATIV Odyssey 4G LTE
LG Lucid 4G LTE
HTC Droid Incredible 4G LTE
Blackberry Curve 9310
Motorola Droid RAZR M 4G LTE
Nokia Lumia 4G LTE
Casio Gzone Commando

P.S. I would assume that the Samsung Galaxy or the Droid RAZR would be the best option, based on brand alone. But I also know that they're the "cheap" versions of those *great* phones. So, like I said, any help would be greatly appreciated. Happy

Clarification Request
It's somewhat subjective

It would be easier if you listed your preferences/requirements instead of having fifty random people incorporate their preferences to a huge list of handsets. In other words, do you want a touch screen? Which carrier are you with currently? Do you need a device that has a great camera/music options, etc.(?)

Some folk fret about such so till then, if folk can wait, I tell them to wait.

I would recommend you to consider Samsung Galaxy as far as from features and hardware's point of view.
