Finally, keep in mind the following:

+ a two-year contract binds you to the phone for a lengthy period; + to get the true price of your phone, factor in the full cost of the contract and any additional one-time fees, prices for accessories, etc.; + LTE users invariably end up "doing more" with the higher connection speeds, often doubling their monthly data traffic; make sure your data cap, if there is one, fits your expected use and look for apps that can help you track usage.
