I got the Motion a few weeks ago and an excellent little phone.
But the replacement or true upgrade for Connect is of course Samsung S3 -out very soon for Metro.
The Motion is an upgrade in every way except screen resolution.
IF Metro gets the LG Escape-it has the same CPU as Motion but a 4.3 inch higher res. screen and a 2150 MAH battery - so may have battery performance and speed similar to the Motion which is excellent on both of those in performance.
