I just hate tablets so much, I find them inherently stupid. I like my Kindle Fire ok, but really I barely remember I have it.

This way, I have a lot of the tablet features I want, plus phone.

But I'd be lying if I didn't pretty much just buy this phone for multi-window

It really is. I'm usually big into rooting and custom roms and this is the first phone where I actually stayed on stock for close to a month.

Same. I really have no desire to root and flash a ROM, other than little annoyances like the persistent WiFi notification, but those things don't affect the performance whatsoever.

To get rid of that, go to WiFi settings, click on Smart Mode, and disable it.

I couldn't find that. It's probably some AT&T crap. The woes of a carrier phone.

So what are opinions on smartwatches? I personally find them useless, especially if it's as expensive and underwhelming as the Galaxy Gear.

I'm anxiously awaiting Galaxy Gear V2. I've wanted a smart watch more than anything in the entire world for most of my life. Holding back on Gear 1 is proving difficult, but I know it's the smart choice.

It's gotten slammed in reviews (e.g. the NY Times). Some early adopters are going for the Samsung, but it has a high return rate.

Got my Nexus 5 yesterday. Yum....

I loved the S4, but having this phone makes me realize how much Samsung oversaturates their color scale.

Does anyone have Virgin Mobile? Trying to find the best phone (not iPhone or Galaxy SIII as I don't want to pay 300-400 dollars) as I'd like to switch.

Looking at HTC One V, Victory LTE, Galaxy Ring, Galaxy Reverb, Optimus Elite, etc.

I had Virgin Mobile for about a year and it wasn't too bad. The only problem is that the phones you've listed are not even close to a high end phone. The HTC One V is basically a remake of the HTD Evo 3D, which was its flagship model in 2011.

If you have no care for having a higher end phone and want to save on monthly costs, then Virgin is ok. If you're looking for a better phone (more expensive but worth it) but still want to save on montly prices, you may want to look at buying the Nexus 5 and then activating it on Straight Talk, which offers unlimited data for $45 per month. The only issue I've heard regarding Straight Talk though is that even though they say "unlimited", I've heard of them threatening to throttle customers for using too much.

I personally have the Nexus 5 on Sprint and couldn't be happier. Sprint's network has seen a lot of improvements this year.
