questionstime for an upgrade - phone edition.


Hard to go wrong with the Samsung Galaxy S3 or 4. I've got a nexus 4 but my wife has an S3 that's quite capable. I'd go with one if I couldn't get a nexus on my network.


If you want a physical keyboard, Verizon, and Android, you are limited. Probably the Motorola Droid 4 is the best of the small selection.

Since it is not a requirement, and you were happy with the Motorola, maybe try building your own Moto X. It should stay ahead of the curve (and Samsung) with OS updates.
