It really is a beautiful screen! The only thing that's not excellent, IMHO, is its performance in bright daylight.

thanks, I think I've just about decided!
Now what about rooting, any different, easier/more difficult? Any decent AOSP roms? The Omega Rom looks nice, better than stock?

cheers the man!

There's a sticky root guidelines on xda. Use that, it's better than the one here. You may have to install kies for driver's. Samsungs HTC sync basically.

Cm9 is in nightly ATM. Also, aokp is there, but Samsung roms like omega have so many cool features that I'm not going aosp.

If you want the SGS3 i would advise you not to even look at the One X screen, everyone who has compared them side by side will tell you that the One X screen is better.
I have compared both side by side & until they drastically improve amoled technology i could never go back to it.

Haven't played with them side by side, so can't really comment on which is better. However, I used my new HOX for the commute for the first time today, with my ebook reader set to night mode (hangover from the Desire to save battery).

The text and the screen was truly awesome. The black screen of the ebook background blended in with the curved black edge of the glass. As the white case is set back from the glass, the white text looked like it was floating on a pool of oil with no bezel. Was a pleasure to use and read.

Note of caution on the HOX though - there is a big over-excited thread building up over on XDA on a hardware issue over the wifi antenna. HTC have acknowledged it - some quality issue in manufacturing. Don't really know how many handsets are affected - and apparently changes have been made so it doesn't happen to future handsets. Mine seems OK though.

It is a superb phone, looks great, updates are coming from HTC which promises a performance boost (damn your benchmarks SUroot ), but I couldn't in clear conscious recommend one until these new handsets make it to market.

Not had a single one of the problems that have been mentioned on any of the One X threads on xda, also i will also say mine is also one of the ht23 batch.
Battery life i am getting is between 40 & 48 hours per charge.
I also quite often get around 5 hours + screen on time & a day of use between charges with heavy use.
Eagerly awaiting the new update to see how much longer i can get out of my phone.

Well its done, Orange could not match the deal so I've jumped ship to T-Mobile. SGS3 free 1.5gb data, 100mins and unlimted text. should do me fine. Now just got to sit tighht and await its arrival!

Mind if I ask the price? As that's roughly the deal I'd look for.

I too have myself a shiny new S3, got it 8 days ago and so far, loving it, for about 5 months I was using ICS on my Desire (which was 80% fantastic) and I sort of forgot what it was like to have a really snappy phone haha, I was used to the odd freeze or stutter, so coming to the S3, I got that wow factor all over again... which was nice. Not a huge fan of Touchwiz and they seriously include way too much bloat, even on my unbranded handset, but other than that, so far, can't really fault it for anything

Oh and I got mine from Mobiles.co.uk, T-Mobile (which i've since discovered, seem to have amazing mobile data literally anywhere in the country, odd considering I was on Orange before and it was utter rubbish and they are supposed to use the same network), 26 per month, 3 months half price and Quidco on top, free phone, Pebble Blue

Yeah I could root and freeze all the bloat, but to be perfectly honest, I want to try and keep mine as stock as possible... for a bit anyway, just so that I can get the whole "new device" experience. Then again, if I root, it's not like i'd have to put on a custom ROM, so meh maybe i'll just do it haha.

What ROM are you using SU?

I'm using Omega. Its rooted stock with a few tweaks here and there. You will not lose any stock experience with it, so no worry there.

Omega is fine. Its not far from stock. Some tweaks make it smoother and a pleasure to use. Definitely recommend the Siyah kernel too.

No case. Nekked.

Edit > May as well set it up, you can flash Omega without a wipe from stock! Get stuck in!!!

Thinking about getting an s3 now on contract in the hope I can get a three home signal.

Is it worth it?

I've still not spoken to 3 about a home signal. I asked in store and he was under the impression it was crap. That said, not sure I trust that.

It depends what worth it means to you? For me its a fantastic device. Massive step up from the desire.

I spoke to the network specialist team after speaking to normal cust. Services and she basically said that there is rubbish coverage in my area with no planned upgrades and a three home signal would be the answer but I cant have one as i am sim only.

She also said I would need unlimited data on my home broadband!! She didn't know how much it data it actually uses though.

I have compared the One x and SGS3 alongside each other streaming the exact same video clip at the same time. BOTH are stunning. The SGS3 is marginally sharper the colour contrast on the OneX is marginally better. Having done the test I am still 50/50. Performance in daylight might push me towards the OneX but it's too close to call.

I made the move to an HTC One V. I like the size, very much like the Desire. Single core is fine by me, ICS and Sense 4.0 seem snappy too me. The screen is better than my better halfs S2X imho. Build quality is great and the battery seem to last 2-3 days.

Well and truly the end of your Desire days then
Thanks for all your help over the last two years

Out of interest, what would one get for a Desire these days for trade ins or a reasonable price for a friend-exchange?

I'm on the opposite side, while I like 4+" screens (had an S2X for a time) for my use I prefer the 3.5 - 4" size. Same resolution on a smaller screen looks sharper anyway

Damn - maybe (feel sure you will be able to answer lol) you can answer my query my post re returning to 2.3!

Yeh got to agree, still need my deisre for a couple of days until my number transfers. It feels like a toy now compared to the SGS3.

The Huawei D Quad release is pushed back again.

Huawei Ascend D Quad delayed until August due to SoC issues

Glad i got the One X and not still waiting for this.
If its any good when its finally (if) released, may be tempted to sell and buy one outright.

Yeah I know. That is hugely dissapointing. I might have to consider SG3 now...

Been tempted to get a SGS3 and using my desire for work and put the SIM in the SGS3 when I get home.

Now seriously tempted just to get the Nexus 7 and keep my desire as just a phone. Looks pretty damn good and reckon it'll have a good following and dev support :-) plus the price is cracking.
