I'm thinking about get the iPhone 7 to hold me over, I'm wondering if the monthly payment play allowing to get a new phone every year is worth it. Mainly because I'd rather try the 8 or whatever it's going to be called.

My business partner at one of my shops has taught me how to repair iPhones. I get a lot of enjoyment out of doing it. So far, I can only do screens, front facing camera, proximity sensor and ear speaker but at some point, I'll be able to change the battery, charge port and rear speakers too. Repairs are almost pure profit on iPhones as the parts are relatively cheap.

Ok cool. I really like the active series. I would have destroyed the S6 edge if I had it instead of the S6 active. The S6 Active is perfect for my 16 year old son. His older brother has the S7 active.
I just sold an S6 Active about an hour ago. I liked that they started putting a camo pattern paint job on them. I prefer the Apple OS over android but there's no denying that Samsung makes a good looking device.

Anybody have the S7 Active with AT&T. I know the S8 Active will be coming out this summer at some point. But my son needs a new phone (he has the S3 Galaxy) I am hoping for some 4th of July Sales.

I held off on the iPhone X because I didn’t like that they removed the home button and it’s actually smaller than the iPhone 8 Plus I was using. One of my regular customers had the same gripe as me so I traded him my 8 plus for his iPhone X fully knowing that if I didn’t end up liking it, I could sell the damn thing for $1,200 and buy another 8 plus with cash to spare. It was win-win.

I have to say, I’m pretty happy with it. Face ID is actually easier than Touch ID. I haven’t experienced any of the delays that other people reported having. The swipe down to pull the screen down so you can reach the top works great once I got used to it. It replaces the double tap seamlessly.

Also; while the phone itself is smaller than my 8 plus was, the screen is edge to edge so it’s actually a bigger screen. I’ve also heard that the 2018 iPhone X will come in a 6.5 model so that will be awesome.

All in all, I’m very pleased. I just need to get a case for it. The screen alone on this thing would cost $515 to replace.

I want a One Plus 5T but that shit ain't on Verizon.
It will work on Verizon but it’s not going to be perfect, depending on where you live. It does have CDMA support but is missing one of the Verizon LTE bands. It will work in some places and be sketchy in other places.

Frag et al,

I am either looking to buy the iPhone or an android that gives me a very optimized experience (currently on a galaxy s5). Can someone suggest to me the slickest android that doesn't feel like a tablet in my hands, and that is a good balance of power, battery life. Etc. I'd prefer an unlocked phone.

Frag hasn’t sold phones in a few years.

If you want a nice Samsung phone without it being big, the Galaxy S7 is your best bet. The S8 is a lot bigger.

My Samsung Galaxy S6 has started making me crazy. The home button needs to be pressed pretty firmly to actually work, sometimes taking 3 or 4 presses. On a phone call, no one can hear me for the 1st couple of seconds, so I always have to repeat anything I said. My 32 Gigs is just about full. And the fingerprint recognition stopped working a long time ago.

I just ordered an LG V30 yesterday, which I should receive early in the week. I have never had an LG phone before, so I am hoping it will be a pleasant surprise. It has 64 Gigs, and is very highly rated on Verizon's site.....
