Hello fellow HD2 owners,

I'm still amazed how much support it gets and how its hardware can keep with even new versions of ICS (especially with HWA).

But in the near future I would like to upgrade.

Do you have any tips for a successor of HD2 which should I go for and which could same support in the future like HD2 does?

Thank you for nay suggestions!

Unfortunately, nothing will be as versatile and long-living as the HD2 as far as I'm concerned. Sure, phones like the SGS3 are great and will probably have development for a fair amount of time, but there won't be anything which will be able to run so many OSes and do so much.

I think the next 'HD2' will be a phone which will have a high hardware spec, and be running an OS at the end of its life. (As was the HD2) and I reckon Android still has a long way to go before it runs out of steam. IMHO ICS may be the highest we can go on the HD2. But I would love to be proved wrong :)

I agree with this for the most part but I just don't know what OS will be at the end of its life in the near future since Android and iOS seem to be the most viable choices from here out. I know a lot of people still love WinMo and by no means do I want any angry WM guys after my head lol, I'm just thinking out loud that with the way the major manufacturers are heading ie. Samsung, HTC, LG and so on, will any of them bother making a beefy winmo phone that the great xda devs can convert to Android?

I think eventually their will be a successor to the hd2 however it will be quite some time for multiple reasons.. hd2 was launch right when win mobile ran out of steam then came along windows phone 7 also Android also picked up so their were lots of things people wanted in a phone all of a sudden and the hd2 was the device to have.

I don't think there will be a phone coming anytime soon that can handle all the mobile OSes and have so many ports like the HD2. I personally like the HTC One X. Planning on getting one :)
