Question [Q] If You Were To Buy A New Android Phone Tomorrow What Would It Be?

So it's almost time to get a new phone but I can't figure out what to get...iPhone is definitely OUT...I refuse to be stuck with Apple-only BS...

...so if you were going to get a new Android device (phone) tomorrow what would it be?
I mean what is a step above the EVO 4G (besides the E3D)? Is there something better than the E4G?
Was thinking about this today....definitely need something that can be freaked like the Evo 4G.....

I'm not diggin' the E3D because of the lower MP camera & I hear the 3D really isn't all that...plus I've seen some "3D" footage shot with the E3D and it looked like regular old camera-phone footage...definitely NOT impressed at all...seems more like a gimmick to me...

I hear the Nexus has "the full Android experience" whatever the hell that means...I'm guessing no carrier bloatware?

Anyway...any suggestions?

I know it was wrong but I did it anyway.

If your stuck on sprint I would get the 3d. It has more ram and a better processor. The development on the 3d is huge which means better roms. My roommate has a Samsung epic 4g and its a pain in the a**. Not much going on in terms of rom development and even getting a rom on it involves upgrading the radio everytime a new rom is leaked. You also have to flash pretty much everything through samsungs software instead of CWM (no amonRA on samsungs that I have seen). I would stick to HTC.

If you can switch carriers the HTC sensation looks nice.

If I had to buy tomorrow...

On Sprint, probably the Epic Touch. Verizon, Droid Bionic. AT&T, Galaxy S II. T-Mobile, Amaze.

Of all? Epic Touch I think. If only it had a metal/soft touch unibody and some actual heft...

Just remembered. Epic Touch has LOS and a couple issues right now. Dang it.

The difference between the strong and weak willed is that the weak traverse with wounds covered up and hide when attacked, while the strong stride on with open hands and tears. Wounds bared open, and will continue to go on, even when broken at their core

Coming from htc, odin is one of the coolest things ive seen in a while. You can still use clockwork. I upgraded to the d710 from the 3d and yes you are right the 3d has more development. Which is good because the 3d needs a lot of work where as the stock rom on the d710 is fantastic and really doesnt need any deving. The d710 crushes the 3d in speed im not sure why you're arguing the reverse? Ive been loyal to htc for years but they just aren't what they used to be. Samsung is the new HTC in my eyes.
