Ok so I dropped my elite today and now the screens cracked to shit. it is still 100% responsive to my surprise. I need help deciding on either the Motorola Triumph or another Elite. Other suggestions are accepted thanks guys.

I've never owned one but I've heard the Triumph is garbage. If you're thinking about getting a Triumph for $200 and staying on your $25 plan, you might want to consider a One V for $100 and move to the $35 plan because it seems to be a much better phone. If you really want to keep your $25 plan then the Elite is the best way to go.

In that case I would wait for the Evo V to go on sale somewhere and get yourself a really nice 4g phone. Too bad you broke your phone right after black friday and cyber monday.

Just to put it simply, if you get the Triumph you're getting an outdated brick of a phone.

Either get another Elite which development is still taking off for, or perhaps the One V or if anything you could get the Evo once it drops as the above have said.

Yeah I've ruled the triumph out now. I'm heavily leaning towards the one v. I can't spend the cash for the evo

Just do what's best for you OP.

Take a look at the Elite's ROM development & rooting section, then take a look at the One V's, just pick what's best for you in terms of development so you don't feel like your phone is going to be outdated, and see what specs fit your wants and needs.

I just switched to MetroPCS, so my Optimus Elite from Virgin is up for sale.

They have the same SoC. Same ram. Same space. Htc wins audio and camera pretty easily. Htc wins with ICS. But I hate only having back, home, "recent apps".

The One V has a 480x800 pixel 3.7" screen compared to 320x480 3.5" on the Elite.

Definite plus. But There's only one custom kernel I've seen. Plus, rooting is a bitch.

Triumph is garbage and the One V has that ugly curve at the end. Stick with the optimus elite, it's pretty.

The curve on the end isn't nearly as pronounced as it looks in pictures.

If you can't get the Evo V, or just don't need the power, the One V is your best option. The One V is a nice upgrade from the Elite.

My wife dropped hers in the rock driveway, probably waist high. I have a Trident case on mine - hopefully it will offer some protection, but not on a direct screen hit.

I've dropped mine numerous times and have what giantpune said he had - just the simple, $3 silicon phone condom. Not a scratch nor a break nor a crack. The edges are raises just enough that even on a direct hit, the screen doesn't touch anything (if it's a flat surface). Trident should have you covered and I'm not sure whether or not OtterBox has been developed for the OE yet, but another good case/series to check out is Ballistic. Both Trident and Ballistic are fairly close to what you'd get from an OtterBox, so if you've got either you should be all set.

The battery is removable on the Elite, lol. That's not a "feature."

Speed isn't everything.
It's even more worthless when you can't even find where you are going with that pathetic GPS.

My HTC One V running Android 4.2 thanks to XDA amazing dev team. So many ROMs for the One V over at XDA. The support for the One V is horrible at AndroidForums due to moving development to XDA. Now I'm back to using smooth 4.0.4 again due to 4.2 having some bugs, and didn't have camera feature yet.


Note: One V overclock to 2GHz
