I picked up a thunderbolt for 40 bucks . I rooted and the rest we know, so I loaded ics on it and man it out performs my spec. Man I can't wait until the badass Devs we have; get a legit copy of it for the spec
Larger battery, more RAM, newer & faster processor, lighter, HD (720x1280) screen (compared to 480x800). The only place where the Spec is deficient, is it doesn't have an FM radio receiver and has less board RAM, but neither affects performance.
You're not getting it, specs don't mean anything when compared to the executing of apps, bootup and being able to use your phone right after bootup.
Lol wut? What do you think determines those actions? The hardware, which, as I said, is superior in the Spec. Don't get me wrong, the thunderbolt is a great phone and I considered getting one before I got the spec, but it's not superior to the spectrum. I'm glad to hear you have a positive experience with it, though.
When the spec gets ics, you'll find it performs as well... It's has better app execution and caching than gb, which could explain your perceived performance improvements.

I agree with the OP that a 5" screen would be nice but this is mainly because of how I use my phone for work. For the average user a 5" screen would be annoying. My better half hates larger screens and when she has used my phone complains "it's like holding a VCR to your face".
Like MrB said, the Nexus 7 is a great option if you're looking for a nice tablet with a decent sized screen. I recently purchased one and I am sure I will be rooting and mucking with it quite soon. Further, you can get wifi tether for root users or FoxFi and there you go, you now have data connectivity to your tablet.
I met a guy with a hacked nook and he raved about it. Cm9 looked slick on there too.
I'm not big on flashing nightly's every day, i'm about a week behind in the updates. I use it for business so i'm sketchy on updates lol. I've got to reboot it more often, it locks up a bit more, things don't load as fast, but i'm also using the opengl version because i don't know the differences between them.
Look into the transformer 300T. I've got one with cm10 (jb) on it and love it. Stock sucks on it, but most stock roms do, so it's no shocker. If you want a mobile data version, I believe the tg model has it.
my NC is the main reason i'm rooted so i can use wifi teather. I'm pretty happy with my NC, and i'm starting to use it less and less as a tablet and more and more reading on it. My spec's picked up a lot of the apps i've used in the past, with the bigger screen.
Fin, i got the NC when i was using the LG Ally, crap screen size and crap for memory. One of the biggest reason's i'm pulling away from that is the signature app i found doesn't function unless it's connected to the internet, and it's buggy on ICS. I'm thinking about going back to GB to get functionality back
The LG Spectrum for Verizon Wireless is the sucessor to the LG Revolution. Surely, LG did not want to stay behind, so this device packs some great specs and features. The Spectrum sports a 4.5-inch HD IPS display, a 1.5 GHz dual-core processor and ... Read More
