thanks for the info :-)
yeah i have always loved the desire hd. would be happy to have it back but got another year of my contract left so thinking whether i would prefer to have a different handset for the remainder. Bit of a gamble really. Really like the look of the LG although its got less ram. Screen size may let down the incredible s imo.. Only mentioned the xperia play as its on offer with Phones4u at the moment never really looked into it before now.
Any other handsets around the 250-300 mark you can think of that look nice?
