Honestly all of the phones can do pretty much the same amazing shtein these days. It's hard to go wrong with one of the newer devices, it's just a matter of what flavor of cool you want.

I saw one of those stupid memes that I thought was pretty accurate. Something along the lines of. If someone from the past could see our everyday technology, what would surprise them more: 1) We have a device that fits into our pockets and can access the entirety of human knowledge and achievement, of 2) that we mostly use that device to look at pictures of cats and argue with strangers.

Saw that too a while back.  Ironically enough the posts immediately before and after it on my newsfeed were both pictures of cats.

i think they would be most suprised that you dont have to go into 7-11 for change to call home anymore

and that no one ever has to ask someone else what time it is

not having a cell phone i cant tell you how many weird looks ive gotten when asking a bartender or a patron next to me if they have the time

You really don't have one? I thought you were farging around. It obviously none of my business, but why no cell?

Regardless, every man should own a watch.

i dont even want a house phone....much less a cell phone...i just cant stand them...

wifey has one so its not like if i really really needed one i couldnt borrow hers...but even hers is a cheesy pay as you go phone mostly used for just emergencys...like if we are going out together most times she doesnt even bring it

and i might hate jewlery/watches more than cell phones

Get a pocket watch just like old school whitey.

Also, the bartender is looking at you funny because there's probably a clock on the wall behind him, not because you don't have a watch.  Just subtract about 15 minutes and you're good.

I have a Samsung Galaxy Nexus.  Gotta say Sunny, the first gen of Androids had more bugs than the latest.  I had the OG Droid, and that thing was a tank.  Upgraded last year to the Nexus, haven't had any issues other than it frying up while charging the other day.  Luckily Verizon replaced it for me, so long as i paid for the insurance between now and my reup in Sept.  Adds up to 60 bucks, not bad.  Only thing that sucks is losing my pictures that i'd taken over the past year

Use Dropbox or Google+ to back that up. Every time I take a picture, it automatically syncs with Dropbox...so there's never a worry about losing the pics, even if the phone is flat out lost.
