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.
