    Today is a sad day for me, today I'm letting go of my beloved Optimus because I was given a free EVO 3D (and I can't refuse that!). The reason for this post is simply to say my goodbyes to this great community. Also I want to say how much I really appreciate the work the developers here put into this little phone, it's really great and I can't even begin to show you guys how much I appreciate the work (seriously).

    So thanks again guys, you made my first android phone a REALLY great experience, and I hope you all the best.

    I left my optimus s for the GS3.

    It was a great phone while I had it. I still do have it and still visit these forums a bit. and will flash any new roms i think might be cool.



    Thing i miss the most, how easy it is to flash, and almost unbrickable,

    Thing i miss the least is the size. After using the GS3 for a while i hold the optimus, and ask how i able to use something so small, lol

    I still have the Optimus. October I might get the GS3 or the iPhone 5. Depends how crappy the iPhone 5 is going to be. Or Wait for the next Nexus phone.
    I didn't really like the EVO 3D the battery was kind of crappy and I know 4G LTE is coming so I'll wait.

    I think you should get the gs3. We have seen ios6 which is what the iPhone 5 will run. And it is still boring and behind android in features

    The stock ics rom on my evo3d was pretty crap, i rooted and rom'd it on day 3, now I'm running cm9 and I've fallen in love with my new phone, battery lasts me 2 days on full charge. I'm going to try and keep up on optimus stuff but I definitely won't be doing as much as I did before.

    Hmm...my brother is trying to trade me his EVO3D in exchange for my upgrade in October. If I accept, then I'll be stuck with the EVO until at least between September 2013. Should I accept? It looks like you're having a nice time with the 3D what do you think about it?

    Just my $.02: If you already have WiMax 4G in your area and no LTE, that's a great deal. Gives you a chance to see what Sprint is going to do. I wish I had a bro like that! If no WiMax, then it's more of a toss up. If LTE is there, then go get the upgrade as soon as you can. 3Vo is a nice device though and so much better with a good custom ROM.

    I love this phone. If your wanting a phone that has plenty of rom choice like the Optimus then the 3d is a good option. I'm currently running aokp on jelly bean and the dev team for it are always releasing updates. There's also sense roms, cm9, cm10, aokp-ics, and more. So yeah, I'd recommend the phone. The only thing I don't like is the touch buttons, they are so damn easy to hit on accident. I'm going to see if I can disable them and use on screen buttons.

    Thanks, our area does have (spotty) WiMax and aren't up for an LTE upgrade until late 2013 / early 2014 so I guess I'll go this route after all. Thanks for the advice ^_^
