just read reviews of the One S, One X, LG 4X, Xperia S. None of them is a replacement for the desire. I like the One S, but lack of battery access puts me off. One X is just TOO big for me anyway... Like the look of the LG, but as you say its an LG!
Just as well I can't upgrade until July as there is nowt that floats my boat yet!

I think I'm settled on the Xperia S.
The One X sounds like a beast but may be a little over the top for my actual usage.

I like the Xperia S's screen size+resolution, and if I have to have fixed storage then I want 32GB minimum. But I don't need to jump at any particular time - I'm in the "starting to watch the market again" phase rather than the "desperately looking for a reason to upgrade" one

I've no experience with LG smartphones. I have seen a lot of their dumbphones fail fairly quickly (they appealed to girls my daughter's age a couple of years ago), and wasn't impressed with build quality of those, but their smartphones may be a different story for all I know.

The battery pull can be simulated by holding down power for 10 seconds.

Indeed, but as my testing earlier in this thread identified, the desire version of this would not be sufficient necessarily.

Blackberry have simulated battery pull. It's good and cures 90% of battery pull requirements as does the desires. But that 10% is where we modders need it.

There is no substitute for an.actual battery pull

The HTC one x would be my choice if there was a card slot, personally i think they have made a big mistake by not including one. Yes LG aren't exactly great where phones are concerned but the display on the 4x makes the HTC display look sick, this is an area where LG have been able to shine.

I suppose that's one way to reset the phone. My Desire is overheating, so I decided to put it in the freezer while playing video. 15 mins later the battery was dead flat.

Should I expect long term problems treating a phone this way?

Agreed. You can turn the 3d off a just run in 2d. It is then basically a Sensation for 200!

Hmm definitely concerned over these new breed having fixed batteries - I'd definitely want to carry on modding. Lucky in that I'm not due an upgrade until Sept at the earliest so will hopefully get the benefit of advice from folks on here who have had to change earlier, and keep an eye on level of dev for them.

I'd also like to know what audio hardware these things are going to have but really difficult to find much on this - eg SGS3 going back to Wolfson inside (i wish).

that does work however like suroot says its not ideal
there is not a reason for them to seal a battery. samsungs are thinner and have removable units.
theres a reason they are sealing them

To be able to sell more devices due to battery death I suspect.

Rooting does not restrict income. In fact I would expect it to boost it. Replacement parts restricts income though....batteries?

I'm so in two minds about the 1X. I can upgrade pretty much add soon as its launched, and I adore the specs, but like you, the battery issue had me worried. If I'm in the car, my desires on charge. Most of the time in the house, its on charge. So the life span of a full charge isn't really a worry. The inability to pull it is however. I was concerned about the lack of an SD card slot, but i have a 32 gig now and its nowhere near full.

I just wish Samsung would release the specs of the Galaxy S3. That would make my decision ALOT easier.

I am liking the camera on the Experia S though.

AAAARRRRGGGGHHHHHH.......

Hmm, but it must put off many potential buyers though. Like you said, once the battery goes, your kinda stuffed.. I'd be hesitant in buying another as I'd know it was a problem.
I'm still waiting patiently for the official SGS3 spec and weighing up all my options

My wife has just upgraded today to the xperia s. £21.50 a month for 200 mins ( which she hardly uses) 250 o2 to o2 unlimited texts and 500mb data. Looks absolutely stunning. Fixed 32gb memory and fixed battery. Will report back when I have had a play. :-)

Sorry to verge away from the double entendre, but when are people due an upgrade? I feel I'm quite late on (October my contract ends, September I can upgrade my phone if I renew it).
I suppose I can look at it 2 ways. The array of phones due out soon will be more affordable with better deals however I don't get my hands on new toys until after everyone else.

I can upgrade any time as I'm on payg since Oct. However I'm still to see a phone that I like. All I want is a good processor, reasonable internal storage and sd support. Not too much to ask for surely? That Galaxy S3 better be good as it's looking like the only possible one at the moment!

June.

Right now waiting to see what the S3 might offer. SD, removable battery are dealbreakers for me atm.
