    Yeah this is a strange scenario where neither cell phone manufacturers or cell providers are providing a reasonable solution.

    Good point. And the carriers automatically take away the unlimited data plan when upgrading. But then again, the competition has those same problems. They could still be pretty great if everything else is good.

    Won't lie. Would have liked to have seen a bigger screen and replaceable battery would be cool, although the battery on my Focus S took a crap on me slowly and I tried to replace it with Ebay variants and it just wasn't having it. Luckily I was still under 1 year warranty. Unluckily, Samsungs warranty process is garbage and I was left without my phone for almost 1 month.
