Strong suggestion: Don't jump on a model because of hype. And don't shy away from a phone because it's inexpensive. Over the years I've found that there's little truth to the idea that "you get what you pay for" when it comes to cellphones. Try this. Go to PhoneScoop's Phone Finder. Select Verizon, available phones, 4-stars or higher. Sort the results by user rating. You might be surprised. Verizon's top 4G smartphones are currently the RAZR MAXX (4.52 rating on 25 reviews), Droid Incredible 4G (4.5 on 1 review), HTC Rezound (4.32 on 22 reviews) and LG Lucid (4.2 on 5 reviews). The Galaxy S3 doesn't even make the 4-star cut, coming in at 3.77 on 30 reviews. To me that means a whole lot of people bought the hype and regret doing so. If you read the reviews I suggest sorting by most negative to get an idea of complaints or problems people are having. The DINC4G and the S3 came out at the same time and look at the disparity in the number of reviews. You want a good phone? Pick the MAXX or the Rezound. If cost is a major factor, go for the Lucid. Been on the market a while, not so many reviews because of the lack of hype, but it's reliable and low-cost.
