    I would say that's an example of desperation being an ugly thing... But a great deal on your end.

    I traded the iPhone 5 for a LG G2. What y'all think about that?

    Usually I'd say that was a good deal but I'm not quite enamored with the G2. It's lacking the things I'd need in android. Nor do I think I'd want a discontinued iPhone. How many GB on the 5?

    I think you may want to stop trading. Eventually you are going to get burned. IMO going from the Note3 to the iPhone5 was a bit of a step back, just in terms of when the phones were released. Then going from the iPhone5 to the LG G2 was definitely a step back. Essentially you went from the Note 3 (3gb ram, stylus support, larger battery, newer version of android) to the LG G2 (older, only gorilla glass 2, 2gb ram, smaller batter, older version of android). It seems you made some money in the deal, but was that really your end goal?
    I guess if it works for you then great.

    Yea I kind of needed the money. And I already got burned a few times for trades actually. And why do people hate the LG G2 so much?

    I don't hate it, it is a fantastic phone. Not a huge fan or the glossy back, and the UI isn't my favorite. But it is a very solid phone. It just seems the if you like a big phone then you had the best, the Note 3. Personally I am going to hold out to see what the S5 has to offer, the Note series is just too large. Supposedly they are making some changes to TouchWiz and that intrigues me.

    Yeah, not too fond of the G2. But what's wrong with having a discontinued phone? I enjoy the iPhone 5. I mean, I did before I got my Moto X.

    I just don't like getting a discontinued phone after it's been discontinued. It's not so bad if I got it before. I guess that might of been why he traded to the G2...

    I've had several G2s, and pretty much liked them a lot. What did you feel was lacking (as far as an Android phone is concerned)

    Ahh, so you were pretty much a Samsung-only girl. I like Samsung phones okay, I just wish they would consider using premium materials in at least one upper-end model. If the Note 3 had had a kevlar-weave back with a real aluminum band circumnavigating the phone (ala BB9900) I'd likely still have one for sure. The LG Optimus G Pro meets your removable battery and storage requirements but its only on AT&T. I had one...nice phone indeed with an absolutely beautiful screen. Easily rooted too with quite a selection of good ROMs.

    ...but you just can't beat iOS and idevices for build, OS, and app quality, IMO.

    My phone always ends up in a case. So I guess for me, I just got an Otter Box and never saw the materials again. The back on the Note III is pretty honestly. I just don't like my phones naked.

    I think the feel of plastic may of been what enticed me into trying an iPhone for the first time. It was like it was calling out to people like me. I'd probably get a non-plastic one eventually but the colored phones are what got my attention initially. It'll still have a case too. Heh.

    Edit: I hated rooting and putting a ROM on my HTC Evo V (Forgot to mention in other thread), had to do a "Wire trick" to unlock boot loader. I definitely wasn't good at it, took me 6 tries. Glad I didn't electrocute myself! I do love modding my droids! ^_^

    Honestly, I think you should have kept the 64GB iPhone 5. You made out like a bandit on the first trade! But, trading the iPhone 5 for a G2 was a major step back. Nothing against the G2, but the iPhone 5 had more storage space and was/is worth more. But, at the end of the day, do what works for you, brother!
