    Default Which phone are you upgrading to (if you are)?

    With so many new phones coming, I'm curious about which phone people here are going to move to. This should help others get an idea of where they want to head as well.


    No poll because I'm sure most are interested as tow here the devs will be going.



    Personally, I'm buying a 3D a soon as I can convince a manager to pull one from the back room (A.K.A. before it hits shelves). And it will be getting at least one version of Harmonia.

    I will be getting a OneV for my mom, how much dev work I do on that I don't know. It's likely none. I would rather she be on a stable, stock setup. If that fails i will root and rom and maybe start developing for it.

    I would have to say evo. But it would all depend on what ever phone the majority of the devs get, I'm too lazy and impatient to build my own roms, I like you geniuses doing the work for me

    Lol, which is why we are all going to the Evo 3D/4g/whatever. xD

    Maybe a ICS Harmonia? lol, we can dream.

    Edit: shouldn't there be a poll? xD

    Default Re: Which phone are you upgrading to (if you are)?

    I am torn between wanting to stay with VM and buy a 3D or buying an original Motorola Atrix (used about $200 new around $300) and going prepaid. I like the Atrix because of the available accessories and how cheap they are now. You can buy the lapdock, car dock, desk dock, and HD dock for about $175 for all 4 on amazon. Not bad when the best price for the lapdock when it debuted was $299 after all incentives. Granted that was 2 years ago. Really I just like the integrated docks Motorola makes. When my friend bought his OG Droid and Car dock a several years ago I was sold on dropping Blackberry for Android. Had the Moto Titanium had any of these neat docks I probably would have purchased it instead of my OV last July.

    However, as much as I like the idea of having a nifty dock, the Atrix Dev community seams less ubiquitous than the Evo 3d. I will probably get the 3D and buy a 3rd party car dock like the iGrip PerfektFit.

    Odds are it will be ICS based Sense, since that is what it comes with. Remember Harmonia is "what Virgin should have released".

    As for a poll, I didn't put one because I figure people will want to see where their favorite developer is going. A poll would have given anonymous results. Having a lot of people on the phone is good, as is a lot of devs, but some I'm sure would prefer to get the same phone as their favorite dev.

    Honestly, I don't think it matters much. Having lots of good developers is good and odds are you will find something you like regardless, but some are fiercely loyal. Personally I would just like a lot of us to stick together, be it here or another forum. Which is a major reason behind my side project.

    It's an interesting idea, but seems poorly designed in some ways (the dock). I could see it breaking in my travel/work bag.

    I'm waiting for the Google/Asus Tablet, which I'll probably make into a laptop (some sort of case, with bluetooth keyboard). This way you get a tablet, a laptop, and no phone sticking out the back.

    Evo or Triumph. Leaning towards Triumph. The Evo will probably be way out of my price range.

    Considering I flashed my OV over to Sprint (which was a major pain, but completely worth it compared to my old Brew OS phone), I'm not going to change phones anytime soon (and have to go through all that hassle again). But obviously, I'm something of a oddity...

    Yea I agree, I had the LG Rumor Touch, and I loved that phone (no dev support or anything), but you have to admit, after you find this magical place where anything (almost) can be done to your phone, and then you see the people who made it possible, you tend to go (if the funds are avabile) where they go, unless you really don't like where they are going (like if you went to t-mobile, 97% chance I would not follow you, just because of the different carrier, or if you went to the venture XDD).

    But I like this phone (the 3D), and if we get it, I'll be one of the "followers" lol.

    Might as well stay on Vm then. You will be on the Sprint/Virgin/Boost network.

    I'm going to go with the 3D as soon as possible. I may even try and get my hands dirty with making my own custom rom.

    Chances are I'll be on the OV for a.while, but I may get the itch and buy one of them. I'd like a One V, but I also kinda don't want it since it is a cheaper version of the One X. I think I'm going to wait to see what you guys that get one start to say. That way I'm not stuck with a crap phone (in case one of them turns out to be a dud).

    As for devs, I feel like both phones will get split even, unless one phone is drastically better than the other. Also, since I'm partly a Dev myself, I'm not exactly afraid of getting a phone with less development, since all you really need is a custom kernel.

    While the OneV is up in the air.
    The 3D was a slow seller, but not because of problems. New users and Evo 4G users simply didn't see a point in it over the 4G. It's better in most ways, but 4G users didn't see it being worth the added expense, and new users found the 4G still to be a competent phone or went with something cheaper. By the time the 4G was cleared out, HTC had released over Evos that were 90% as good, at half the price.

    The 4g was just a hard act to follow and they sold a TON of them. Up until a few months ago, the Evo 4G was still making top ten lists on best phones to buy (if you could find it). Pretty impressive for a 2 year old cell phone in this day and age. They are easy to find for cheap on Ebay, but that is only due to the sheer number they sold, even then, they sell pretty fast.

    In other words, don't expect the 3G to be a dud. Especially since the new ICS/Sense just gave new life to the older models. The only thing that will hurt it, is the price, but being 4g, that will improve sales numbers even with a high buy in cost.

    I'm not saying it will be a dud, but since virgin mobile has to do stuff there is always an outside chance. IF the One comes to VM, it seems like the 3D will be better because of the cheaper hardware that the one v uses (compared to the one x, idk how it is compared to the 3D). I just want another phone, I'm greedy, and as much as I love vanilla android, sense 4 looks mighty sweet.

    Question, on HTC phones, are there a lot of vanilla android builds or do most of the rooms come from sense? I really don't like skins in general.

    I am also going with the 3D as soon as it becomes available. I have already made arrangements with a friend who is a manager at Radio Shack to pull one for me before they hit the shelves. As far as favorite dev. I have enjoyed my OV (still do) since installing Harmonia, that I plan on following that dev.

    Is it going to be the 4G or 3D? Because I would prefer the 3D. And like anyone else I will go where the devs go.

    It's the Evo 3D, however, it is being renamed the "Virgin Mobile Evo 4G" (it may have HTC somewhere in there as well).

    It's a stupid thing to do from a technical standpoint, but I can understand why they are doing it from a marketing standpoint.
    I can already see the bricked phones from people flashing Sprint Evo 4G roms.

    Im a grandfathered customer and I dont want to give that up.3D most likely will not come out until after May 27. The One V may have a chance to come out before that date and if so, I will probably dive on that phone and screw the optimus elite. If none of them do I will have a difficult decision of staying on the OV or upgrading to triumph or spending more money and getting the evo 3D thus losing the cheapest cell phone plan in the world. I also heard that the triumph is gonna get an ics update so that could sway my decision.

    I have a qeustion on the one v. Since there is no battery case on that phone, what if it freezes one day. How can I hard reset it?

    I'll likely keep the V for awhile and see how things pan out.

    I want to know what phones are coming out when, what devs are going for them, and if I'll be able to keep my grandfathered plan with them. And the initial problems (I have a feeling the One V is going to be the triumph dud nightmare all over again...), and the price. All those factors will decide which phone I'll get.

    The thing is, the EVO 3D already has a ton of ROMs for it (ICS, CM7, MIUI, the list goes on) and if I'm not mistaken, these can easily be ported to the VM version with little more then some libs and a radio swap. Correct me if I'm wrong there, because I probably am.

    If none of the factors for the 2 new VM phones are in my favor, I'll probably get a SGS 2 on T-Mobile prepaid. What I would like to know, however, is how easy it would be to use SGS 2 post paid T-Mobile ROMs on the prepaid version.

    That's my .02 cents. Can anyone answer any of those questions?

    I'm sticking with the OV. I can live with throttling on my current plan, but at $35/month and $300ish for the phone, I see no point in upgrading for two weeks of 4G and 2 weeks of sub 256kbps per billing cycle.
