    I am done with the flagship waste of money nonsense. it's like computers now compared to 25 years ago. Back then, the Jump from say a 286 to a 386 was HUGE. but jump for a core i3 to a core i5 is not dramatic unless you are gaming. Look at regular HD tv's vs 4k tv. Yeah you can see a difference in 4k, but it's not going to make me want to throw out my perfectly fine HD sets. NOT worth the price. Same goes for mobile phones now. The difference between the mid range and flagship has dimished to only being able to notice a difference when you put both side by side. Even then, some of the mid rangers are faster doing certain things. Battery life is better on the mid range devices too because they are not pushing huge resolution and top tier chipsets.

    You would be wise to move from sprint and grab an LG device.

    I think you said/posted it somewhere or is it deja vu?

    I was just stating the reasons why choosing a mid ranger makes sense.


    Glitch in the matrix!

    Unless you are a content creator or very well off with money to spend on a very high speed connection + online media subscription (which is already limited),or get a 4k blu ray player + 30-40$ per disc, 4K has zero appeal simply due to the lack of content. verizon/comcast/OTA still deliver content at either 720p or 1080i, leaving your 4k set to interpolate and fill the pixels. I'll wait until there is actual native 4k content widely available

    Well said. Here at my place we're still using 480p/720p for TVs and even High speed Internet is getting little cheaper to enjoy 1080p videos. Usually, I use 360p or 480p just to get rid off buffering.
