Help! Have to get new cell phone and about to leave for trip

Have to make a decision quickly and am looking for my DISers to help. I have an old samsung fascinate and it just died and we are about to go on our trip. I would love advice. Looking at galaxy III, HTC Windows 8x, and maybe the Razor. Experiences?

I have the Galaxy SII, and really like it -- if I were upgrading today, I'd get the SIII. It's had really great reviews.

I like my Galaxy S III also. Not sure yet if Windows phone is the way to go. The jury is still out on it. They may take off or may just be an also ran which means support and features will lag behind.

I have the Galaxy SIII. I got it on Black Friday and still learning something new everyday.

Texting and skyping is simple.

I have ATT so I can talk and send at the same time. Nice feature there.

I have not check out the Panoramic camera yet....I need to put that on the list to do.

If u were to get the S3, i would say wait. S4 is suppose to be announced in March and probably release in summer, the S3 would probably drop price...
but since you need it asap for your trip, then just get it...

cant say much, im a apple boy. :P

I wish I could hold out for the S4 but don't see how I can. I heard that the Disney app may not work with the S3. I have Verizon and hope that isn't the case if I go get that phone!

yeah, if u really need that phone, get it. another solution would be to just sell your S3, wait till the S4 goes on sale, rebuy it... but thats just a hassle, lol. S2 has been around a long time, im sure the S3 will too.
