    No, I do not currently have a smartphone. I am looking at getting one when my contract is up next year. Right now I would pick HTC or an iPhone. If the iPhone has a better camera (8mp w/1080p video) I think it would be one of the best phones on the market.

It's got 4g LTE and nice specs all the way around. I know there are certainly phones with better specs, but I don't really care about those, just the true performance and battery life.

    I agree, but their upcoming 'Sea Ray' looks to be the best looking smartphone in a while, and if it turns out to be a stable platform, I am certain to dump this SGS with it. :D
