I know giving your opinion is less fun when someone asks for it, but I'm due an upgrade in a couple of days (fucking FINALLY) and I'm having a hard time actually deciding on what my next phone should be.

I'm on Verizon and I have the Droid Bionic which has been fine. But Verizon's CDMA network makes my phone useless outside of the country, and I'm planning some traveling this year (a trip to the UK to see family, definitely, to see family and maybe a sojourn to Argentina). I'm not a frequent globetrotter, but the option to use my phone abroad is one of those "nice to have" things. The iPhone 5 is looking like the front runner because even though it's on Verizon's network it can still be used internationally. From what I can tell, the Android phones don't allow this.

So who has an iPhone 5? How awesome is it? Or is there some other phone you wish you'd gotten?
