the camera is terrible (like really terrible, worse than 1st iphone terrible)
the phone is plain
the screen is the only thing the phone has over the vivid, and it's not a significant difference.
if you want the 1.5ghz clock than use a kernel that puts it to it's default value (htc underclocks for battery life) an hey you can go to 1.7 if you wanted to as well.

get the vivid, trust me lol

thanks a bunch guys !!

definately getting the vivid now !!


and is there anyone who had any issues with the device (software, hardware) any bricks or so ?

and also i would like to know whether vivid supports .mkv in the ics update (i know gb doesnt )


thanks...

i don't know if it natively does.. but you can get MX Player or something like that, and it'll play it. Also, i've never actually "bricked" my device i've messed everything up seriously multiple times but very easy to come back from it

My only suggestion is to not use cwm recovery or twirp recovery and use wcxrecovery. Wild child was on the phone with a guy for a few hours trying to get cwm recovery off this phone because it bricked it. After a while he got it off the phone. I have heard people are having issues with the twrip recovery as well so I've stayed clear of that myself

It's a huge step up in development though.

Of course that's only speculation considering the AT&T version isn't out yet. Looking at the current development community, it's intriguing.
Current: Samsung Galaxy S III
Previous: HTC Vivid
Previous: Samsung Captivate

If you have a Captivate, I have a ROM for you: MaxQ and Sparko ROM

There could be 1000 devs for the One X and I still wouldnt want the phone lol. No expandable memory kills it hard for me.
