The dual core and extra 512 of ram is the only thing nice about this phone. The Esteem smashes it on everything else.

AGREED. Larger screen, HDMI out, etc.

Glad you found it. I would have posted it up here but, I didnt want to go against the forum rules. But since this is up heres some more goodies

Quote:
"The Connect 4G will cost less than the LG Esteem's $249.99, Lau said; the Esteem is our current favorite MetroPCS phone, but with its tight design, sharp screen and dual-core processor, the Connect 4G could take its place."
Quote:
"The Attain will cost $199, and it isn't as good as the Connect, but the Connect may cost less than $249. Could that put the Connect at $229? The math works"
This spiked my intrest the most...
Quote:
The Dyle phone is a mystery. MetroPCS didn't let me handle it—I had to let their rep demo it in front of me. Yes, it has that comical stick-out antenna, because it's receiving broadcast TV. Otherwise, it looks like a decent Samsung Galaxy S phone, with four physical buttons below what appeared to be an 800-by-480 screen.
MetroPCS's new phones are running Android 2.3, and "currently we don't have any plans to support [Android 4.0] Ice Cream Sandwich" on existing phones, Lau said. "With ICS comes additional…memory requirements that we didn't put into current products. And with the no-contract model we have, many of our customers are willing to upgrade for a new OS."
The new LG Connect 4G and Samsung Galaxy Attain 4G might be exceptions to that rule, but Lau didn't make any promises. The Galaxy Attain is coming this month; the Connect is coming next month. The Dyle phone is coming "later this year."

G2x is slightly faster than the esteem oced at 2.0ghz. The benchmark are not that accurate with dual core devices ..

LG Connect 4G's Nova display has a bright outlook - YouTube
I probably will be selling my phone while they are still in demand so I can get this. The Esteems have really good resale value and seeing how I have a brand new phone I'm sure I can get more than what I paid for it. I've been looking on craigslist, ebay, and some other websites and they are going for $300+. I dont care about front facing camera or hdmi ports so thats not an issue. Plus if I want to play something through hdmi, I would much rather use my asus u31sd-ah51
