Many new phones announced recently. What's captured your attention?
I was really excited about the HTC One when it was announced and I was dying to get my hands on one (pun not intended). Then they delayed its release to well after the Samsung GS4 announcement and I was worried they'd steal a lot of attention from the HTC One. Thankfully, it didn't in my opinion.

What about you guys?

no software updates
The problem with all the htc devices is that they add that orrible htc sense layer that adds months of delays to every software updates released from google.
Htc, for sure, will not update this phone for more than 6 months from its launch, like they did with all the devices that they launched in the past.
Just buy a samsung device, or a google nexus one, you can be sure that you will get android updates for a much longer time.

gdgt Zeitgeist 2012, Part I: Best and Worst of the Year
Over the past year, we’ve scored well over a thousand gadgets. Most of those are good products, with gdgt Scores in the mid 70s to low 80s. These are gadgets you aren’t likely to be disappointed with if you get them, but they’re not likely to wow you either. But we also scored some truly great devices, with scores in the upper 80s and 90s, as well as some that were just awful, with scores as low as 50. As with all of the products we... Read more →

A serious phone
I can finally upgrade and I really want a 4GLTE phone. Since it looks like Sprint isn't getting any WP8 phones anytime soon, I've been thinking about getting one of these since we have AT&T in New York. I really want to test out these 4G LTE speeds for transmitting my graphics design work.

Which phone to upgrade to
I am eligible tomorrow.

My situation is that I can either keep my awful Thunderbolt until the S4 comes out in the spring, sometime.

I can get the DNA for myself, it seems the reviews are very mixed at this point.

I can take my wife's S3 and her March 2014 upgrade date and she will get the Note II for herself.

Curious what you all would do.

contracts - and phones that don't have them
I wonder how many customers wait and wait and wait, because they're tight-fisted enough to JustSayNo to buying phones with contracts? While the DNA looks like the "perfect" phone, it pulls your feet out from under you when you consider the actual cost of the phone with a contract. I'll still go for the Nexus and go with prepaid until I start making over 6 figures.
