So you gonna downgrade from a mustang to a jalopy lol?

Btw, go on ahead and thumb this comment down. Android fans are bitter enough to do so.

i think you mean upgrade from something that wont have flash and minimal customization, to something that does and has almost no limit on customization

wait.. miz..

isnt the jalopy the one that has the weekly issues after weekly issues.. that you generally feel that you paid too much for, and your non jalopy driving friends make fun of you for buying?

So.. wouldn't he be getting rid of the jalopy and going to the FERRARI in this case? :)

yeah, i really think so.

the only way i wouldnt is if i caught wind of something cooler coming along soon, but im so tired of waiting (been sitting on an upgrade for over a year).

plus, i really do like this device. i have an X with 2.2 now, which is a good phone, but crashes often. i had a palm pre plus before this and i LOVED webOS. take my phone, make it much faster, bigger better screen, more stability and some webOS flair...............i know im going to love this thing.

CANT WAIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Same here with the Evo 3d
Its a shame the Evo and the Photon didn't get the same marketing the SGS2 did, otherwise they would be 2 of the best selling phones this year

Why would you want a HSPA+ if you could get the better, LTE version?

14. omarc26 (Posts: 357; Member since: 05 Dec 2009)


Im with lewis i also want the hspa+ version because some of us like me live were verizon is not good and at&t works fine.

20. jacky_luvsjrod (Posts: 53; Member since: 26 May 2010)


I also agree with lewis i want the gsm hspa+ version of this phone only if it came to at&t... because like he said u can use it on different carriers all u gotta is unlock them and pop in a sim card from the place you going something u cannot do with the verizon LTE version for those who travel europe or mexico or canada or asia whereever they go they never have to pay roaming charges cuz u just buy a local sim from the place ur going. Ive done it before with my at&t iphone 4 i got it unlocked and used it in mexico with a Telcel sim and everything worked perfect i got 3G data, calling etc everything worked all without having to pay them high roaming fees once i got back to miami i put my at&t sim and everything went back to normal.

Some of the "any age" demographic will use it as a paperweight, and others as a chew-toy/peanut butter & jelly collector. You may want to re-think that statement. ;)

How big would you say the screen is compared to the RAZR? if you don't mind me asking.
Is it just as wide or wider? or slimmer?
Thanks

46. Alantef (Posts: 279; Member since: 14 Sep 2011)


phone is the same size up and down....the razr is a little wider and you really cant tell then thinness in hand its hands down has more sex appeal than any other phone out there....even when its turned off which makes you wanna turn it back on...phone is really nice...really quick about the camera...side by side to the 4s...its really not that far off and its still a top of the line when it comes to camera phones if anything at all its tied in 2nd place with galaxy s 2's out there but i flat out love this phone...i cant speak on the battery yet because ive been killing this phone....so for its gotten 16 hours of stand by time only because i was sleep lol...the screen is lovely and i cant get enough of ics......

Take a good look at the picture everybody!........ See the empty box on the left? That's what's going to launch on Dec 8th or the 11th!!!
