    Default New Phone thread - need help deciding

    So my company phone is up for renewal this month. I told my boss to defer it as nothing is out right now that I really want. I was going to get the Galaxy S4 Active but all my coworkers have one now and I am never one to be part of the crowd. Usually I am the cutting edge or "bigger is better".

    Here's some background:

    I started with the Motorola Atrix when I started two years ago instead of the Infuse (which is actually a great phone) because I wanted a dual core phone...the cutting edge at the time. It turned out to be underwhelming and small. I shelved it since I couldn't sell a company phone and acquired a Galaxy S2. It was awesome but about a week later I acquired the S2 internation which was even neater (physical home key). Yet a week later I picked up the S2 Skyrocket to use LTE and it was BLAZING. It however chewed through batteries so I traded it for a Note1 which was decent but a little buggy here and there. After that came the Galaxy S3, and then about a month later the Note 2 which I currently have.

    My personal phone was an iPhone5, which recently was replaced with an S4.

    Anyways, within the next say, 3 months I want to try out a new phablet phone but I am unsure which to go for. There's the Xperia ZR which is water proof as well, the Note 3, and a few others I've forgotten. What do you think? I mainly use it for web, tethering, and maybe 5% calls. Stylus is not required - I never use mine. I'm just wondering if I've missed any particular models coming out soon. I'm willing to wait. Normally I just trade for what I want, but since the company is buying this one I have to choose carefully.

    I had such bad battery life out of my Samsung Charge, that that was at the top of my list of requirements when I re-upped with Verizon.

    While not a phablet (nice one...), the Razr Maxx by Motorola has done me justice. I can get about 2 days out of each charge, and never have to worry about finding a place to charge up in the middle of the day. The screen res looks good, and I'm not sure what's under the hood, but it runs everything I throw at it well enough. I've used it for tethering a few times, and everything was perfectly smooth.

    So if you're willing to sacrifice screen real estate, the Razr Maxx will treat you well on the battery life side of things.

    I forgot to mention - AT&T since my company is buying.

    The Note2 can give me about two days of usage (and I use it heavily). The battery is 3100mah which is pretty crazy. I like the real estate a lot. Leaning towards Note3 if the specs will ever come out. I like Super AmoLED and 1080 screens as well - I do hold it close when I am laying in bed without glasses on so that does matter.
