Depends on what your looking for it to do best, each have their own BEST functionality and features personally AmeriCanAndroid is what is usually being used for me personally it works perfectly fine, almost hard to believe the phone wasnt made for that rom. Stable/smooth/battery life/features etc.

Is it through MAGLDR or clk? Aren't there really any issues and is all hardware-potential functionallity delivered?
To take just first example (of many reported): can you charge the phone when the device is switched off (or battery 100% depleted) or can you boot when is powered just with battery (i.e. with charger plugged off)?

and how about spying? (what we already know from Android and even Bada)

So what issues does WP7.5 posses? Please, reply honestly...

BTW If I have many favourite apps from WM6.5 and fully accustomed to (customized either) - may I install them on WP7.5 too? Is there any sort of backward compatibility between WP7.5 and WM6.5?

Yeh can not charge if loose all battery power .
6.5 apps has no compatibility to 7.5 ...
Wm6.5.x is fantastic in terms of flexibility, customization & real world professional use. Only issue was MS not developing or realizing potential of mobile platform growth & Google being so good at marketing & keeping the bad points hidden ...

So you can't rely on such a set when battery full discharge (what is pretty usual) means you can do nothing with your phone unless you have any external charger (such that you take away battery from your phone to charge externally), can you?

However can we treat WM6.5.x as the ULTIMATE system? Once you install, apply all the tweaks invented so far by "the comunity" and then you can forget about maintance and just USE it!
The endless tamperring with it seems "art for art's sake"...

So what if somebody has aboundance of his/her favourite applications once purchased for WM6.5 and masterred their use and customization?
You propose now to waste a lot of time and money to buy again the whole bunch of software, but now for the new version of OS, and afterwards spend many weeks to get them to productive state - do you?
It would be good idea to port them all somehow to WP7 but is there any backward compatibilty? If not it is no more than foolish game!
