[POLL] What will be your next Phone and why?
Posted 06 August 2012 - 08:07 AM
I am upgrading around Christmas and am trying to decide what to get.
Obviously the GNex is gonna be the easiest to root/ROM, but I really want a physical qwerty.
What are the best phones and best developed communities for my next phone?
What are you getting and why?

Because, well, Motorola and QWERTY.
Not interested in Crapsung's plastic toys (and neither in HTC's).
If in the end Photon Q and XT89x end up a bad choice, the Xperia T (well, it doesn't have QWERTY, but I'm planning to get a TF700).

I mean most of us ROM because we are playing catchup to the google release cycle. Rooting will allow us to deBLOAT the VZW "Nexus" (really shouldn't have to...). So for the foreseeable future there will be no reason to ROM unless it is an addicition:D

Theres also Samsung Stratosphere but from glancing over comments on VZW's site it would appear to be not very good. Plus, you get sammy's craptastic radios...
Assuming I stay with verizon come upgrade time next month I'll probably end up with a D4.

Doesn't quite work like that with VZW... It was several months between 4.0.4 being released and it getting it. And they completely skipped the 4.0.3 update.
