Iphone 6 Galaxy S5 & - Time to retire my flip phone?

So I missed a few calls.
OK, I just received the text you sent 24 hours ago.
No, I didn't hear my phone ring.
Yeah, I drove around aimlessly trying to remember where I'd seen the Thai food restaurant.
No, I don't have GPS.
Hmm, I'm not sure why this picture looks fuzzy.
No, I haven't seen what you posted to Facebook; I'm not in front of my computer.

That's right folks. I have an old phone. It's not quite as old as the brick shown above; however, it's a 5 year old basic flip model. Nothing fancy. I can call out. You can call me if you like. I can send you a text. It works. Besides, I have a first generation IPad, so what's all the fuss to possess a smart phone as well? Owning both seems a bit redundant to me.

Everyone hates my phone. My niece laughs at it. My best friend and my sister both dog me. It's funny though, everyone hates it, but no one has offered to pony up to the $$$ to pay for the smart phone, the monthly service fees or for the data.


If I was to have another financial lapse in judgement and get out the old debit card, what should I get?

This is all the rage right now. According to the anticipated release date for the iPhone 6 is September 19. The device boasts a bigger screen than past generations, plus a bunch of other features I probably wouldn't use.  Will this phone take pictures of my finger prints? Hmm, maybe I watch too much Person of Interest. I'm not sure about all this new fangled technology stuff.

And then there's...

Samsung Galaxy S5. It seems to do the same things as the iPhone. Heck I don't know. I'm reading review to better understand its features and functions. 
LG G3 is another competitor for my $1K (well not quite that much). I like this phone. LG offers a great metallic gold color that matches the car. has written a comprehensive review on the LG G3, comparing it to the iPhone 6, the Galaxy S5, the HTC One and the Sony Xperia Z3. I guess I need to read it.

Maybe I should just stick with my iPad, or get a new one. The iPad Air has been out 10 months. I know that if I plunk down $800 bucks, they'll come out with a new one!

I have too many devices to choose from! Any thoughts? What are your experiences with these products? I would love to hear your input.
