They are all good phones entirely down to personal preference.

I'm in a similar situation

In terms of browsing, listening to music, applications and just general use

Basically all the same as they are top of the range devices. Mainly comes down to screen size really. The bigger the screen the better it is for internet use.

I use the Note 3 and wouldn't swap. Also little benefits like the 4K camera recording which give it the edge

Note 3 better than the HTC - Then decide what screen size you prefer from N3 or G2 as both excellent phones.

Personally I would go N3 but the g2 cheaper, but get a 32gb model if you can.

I can't get a 32gb version

none of the contract providers are selling 32gb lg g2's....
also don't you find the note too big especially to hold and make calls?

If you can handle the size of the Note 3 I would say that.

If you can don't need a battery you can swap and 32gb of memory if fine for you I would say the G2.

Both great phones but not in my list due to the above.

I've seen some people have bought the 32gb version for under 390 off the Internet.

Must admit there are not really any phones I want that are out at the moment (maybe the S4 at a push but that's getting old now).

this is my point

i am due an upgrade and my phone is kinda old now....
but like you said there are no phones that are appealing

The htc one is old, i think the note 3 may be too big, the LG G2 comes in only 16gb which isn't enough memory for such a device whilst the nexus 5 has poor battery life which isn't good enough for me.

People may say ''wait till next year'' but how long will i be waiting for? Till next mark, april...may...?

You've asked a few times "how do you cope etc?". The HTC One and LG G2 and Note 3 are all relatively large(r) phones, but manageable. I've ordinary sized hands and my Note 1 (marginally smaller than the N3) is fine. But expect to use these devices as two-handed affairs, in the main. That's the trade off for huge screen estate and good browsing / media consumption and content creation.

Have you actually held one / gone into a shop and picked one up? No point in keep on asking others how they cope as we're all different and usability will be different.

Go try for yourself and/or seek out the gazillion YouTube reviews of the Note 3.

It's smaller than a 7" tablet - and they are easy to use.

I have really small hands and I need to use both of them to use it, which doesn't bother me as I've always used both hands for every phone I've had. I could never just use one hand the way some people do.

Are you really that desperate for a new phone?

I've got the S3 and although I really want a new phone I'm going on a rolling 39 day SIM deal until a phobe that I really want is out.

I may be happy for a few months if I got a new phone now but will be disappointed in a few months when something new is out.
