help me choose a phone

currently i have t-mobile touch pro 2 in states.

i am looking to change carrier and phone.
i started out looking for full keyboard phone with android.
I checked out Sprint's Epic 4G and EVO Shift 4G and didn't quite like their keyboards and the fact that neither of them have any spring loaded slide action.

so now i am looking at touch only phones but don't know which one.
It looks like Thunderbolt is the most powerful one currently, or is it not?
but extra width of 4.3" phone seems bit too much for me.

I secretly hoped Xperia pro will come out soon but who knows when that phone will come to state side with reasonable contracted pricing.
Arc and the other xperia looks good but same availability issue.

what other options out there for both full keyboard phone and touch only android phones??? at this moment and if i wait till june?

i don't want to wait till summer but i know most phones won't be out till sometime in June or later, right?

also what should i look for when i'm looking at touch only phones? it seems like physical functionality are all too similar or insignificant.

I have a rooted xoom that does everything i need, but if i was buying new or didnt want to root etc? The transformer so far is where id be looking. Though any tabbby dont bother with less than dual core...im test driving an acer iconia tomorrow for a freind, but really same specs as xoom, just cheaper.some of the windoz ones are nice, i had an asus ep121 for a bit, very good power but battery life was the killer, though digitized stylus was amazing

I thought about selling my laptop which I never use anymore and my Archos 10.1 and wanted the Xoom. But I got Netflix working on my Archos and i can surf the web and play my scrabble games so to me that is good enough. It may not be as fast as I want and it freezes occasionally cause it's not made to have marketplace and certain stuff I have on it but for the most part it does what I want and I am happy with it. I have the EVO phone and if I sell it I may get the 3D. But if I was going to upgrade my tablet I was really thinking about the Xoom I know the HTC flyer is out or coming out but not sure of the specs. And the Galaxy has a new 10 inch tablet don't they. I like the ones you can use that are just wifi only. I wish I could tether my Archos with my EVO for when in a pinch and no wifi but I am hardly in that situation. And I don't root my stuff

I have SGS at the moment but I want to switch to HTC.
I still need to pay the SGS for another year.
Should I wait the whole year?
In my opinion the HTC Sense is in some parts already better than TouchWiz.
Would the Wildfire S be huge downgrade from SGS or maybe Desire S?
I love Sense 3.0 what Ive seen from videos so maybe HTC Sensation would be a good choise..

Shoud I wait for better one for a year when there is hopefully better hardware than now?

I do not see any phones that have what I want: unlocked bootloader, dual core, LTE, qHD or better display, 4 inch screen size. I'll wait. If I don't see what I want in the next few months, I will probably get the Samsung Galaxy 2 phone on Verizon. I am not a tablet person but the Toshiba Thrive looks like a good 10 inch tablet.

I'm an HTC EVO 4G Owner, and my 1 Year upgrade is 6/1/2011 and I'm having trouble deciding which phone to get next.

First my EVO has had problems since day one, usual stuff like a really loose usb port, half-day charge, but also GPS/Bluetooth only work on occasion and the phone randomly restarts periodically throughout the day. It also has issues sending / receiving text messages, and phone calls.

I rooted my EVO which may have caused some issues however now i'm running a rooted stock version of Sense 2.2, I absolutely hate Sense and would like to run stock android (<3 CM6/7).

My question is should I get the Nexus S 4G, it seems to run much smoother even though the processor is the same speed. I'd get direct updates from Google which = awesome, NFC Chip and from what I understand a slightly better GPU.

Or is the EVO 3D a better choice, I don't really care about the 3D Features but a dual-core processor is a huge over a single core. I'd just be stuck with HTC updates, especially if the boot-loader is locked.

The other option is pray for a release of the Samsung Galaxy S II series phones sooner rather than later but this EVO is getting to be pretty unbearable and Samsung's track record on updates is horrible.

Any Input would be great

Thanks In Advance,

I'm still debating if the HTC EVO 3D is worth getting.
I currently have the HTC Evo 4G, but I see no benefits rather than the cheezy 3D screen. And I think the 2 cameras are just going to get in the way, because they're bulky! :/

I decided to get the thunderbolt. I know there are a lot of haters of the thunderbolt out there, but I like it.

With Plain Jane ROM and adrynalyne's 2.0 kernel, my battery lasts all day. That includes some phone calls, texting, light web browsing, a little YouTube, and some crossword puzzles.

I've also never had a random reboot, even when overclocked.

Suggest a phone -
Preferably Android - good amount of Development going on - HAS a forum on XDA :cool: - below 600$ ( buying unlocked not with contract) - GSM - prefer HTC ( don't know why- but Samsung never appealed to me much).

Upgrading from a Raphael My good old Raphael.:D
I'm an Android n00b - have no clue about anything about Android.

EDIT: HTC Desire S or HTC Desire HD or HTC Incredible S?

Sensation is awesome and above all of these - but a bit too expensive 900$ PLUS it's bootloader is locked - so will tka e long time before it can be rooted ( if at all ).

Can you tell me to a way to get these devices for 200-300$ as they are priced in US etc we use HSPA: 900/AWS/2100 MHz Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE: 850/900/1800/1900 MHz
Ready to pay good amount of shipping - cuz it shall be cheaper than 600$ or so, shall I try EBay ?
Don't want contracts and all - just want the device - don't mind if it is branded as a Stock ROM shall de-brand it - and then we have Custom ROMs anyways.

I just sold my iPhone 4 and now I'm looking to go back to Android (I missed you). I'm having trouble trying to decide which phone to get. I'm leaning towards either the Xperia Play, Droid X2, or the Incredible 2. The Droid X2 doesn't have a front facing camera which is a letdown. But it has the fastest processor. The Xperia Play has the nice gaming controls and stock Gingerbread which is great. And the Incredible 2 has a nice build quality, great cameras, but not sure if I should go with the niche thing like the Play or the faster processor with the X2. If one of these devices had CyanogenMod it would make the decision easier, but they don't.

    [Q] Google Nexus S vs Dell Venue Pro

    Basically I am deciding between these two phones (assuming I can get a functional version of the venue pro). I want your guys' input.


    Due to the increased Next phone advice / models comparison multiple threads we are creating this one to place all your topic related posts so we can keep them on a single place to help others to find it easy.

    I will be moving all that threads/posts in to this one, if you need to discuss anything regarding your thread moved please PM me.

    Thanks for your cooperation
    Wait for two reasons:
    (1) A swack load of new phones are comming out - you may be tempted by their features
    (2) New phones will drive down price of current phones, so you might be able to save some money by having patience.
    If you need a keyboard get the Venue Pro, otherwise get the Nexus S. I like Windows Phone 7 but im going to wait for it to mature first before I jump from Android.
    Thread closed, as it adds to confusion and no end result.

    If you are really sure that it hasn't been then and ONLY then post a new thread.
