Re: Waiting for something new
As much as Blackberry stinks I still find myself harkening back to my days with that keyboard.  I've been using the Galaxy Note II for the better part of 1.5 years now, and even with it's overly large screen the virtual keyboad is a PIA.  The Blackberry keyboard was king - it's amazing the company failed in spite of it...

Re: Waiting for something new
I think the worst phone was the blackberry. I guess blackberry doesn't have any new ideas to bring to the smarthphone market.  My mom has a kindle tablet.  I did notice that many google apps do not have all the features on the kindle as they would on an android tablet.  I would have liked that amazon supported google play because it offers a wide variety of apps.

Re: Waiting for something new
I went from a GS3 to the GS5 and it's flat out an awesome phone.  Upgrading was as simple as switching over, google had everything backed up including apps, and it all ported over to my new phone automatically within 1 minute, and without me having to do anything.  No "setup" necessary.   I have a Galaxy Tab S, and the side-sync is a cool tool.  It looks like Apple copied that function too.

No gummed up works, any bloatware is easy to turn off, no problems of any kind.  Compared to my Wife's iPhone 6 work phone, I like the S5 better.  So does She, actually.

Waiting for something new
I'm a loyalist to my Samsung GS4. It has been a great phone for the last couple of years. I had the change to upgrade to the GS5, but the benefits just didn't seem to override the headache of setting up everything on a new phone. My GS4 is slowly dying, but I'm now waiting to see what comes out of CES next month.
