Since the Galaxy Attain has been said to be priced at $199 after a $50 mail in rebate is it safe to assume that the LG Connect would be priced around $299?

Might be more. I'd say $350-400 since the Esteem is $350.

From the specs..... Im passing on both. Being dual cores is the only and only thing worth even considering switching. Besides that the reset of the specs kinda blow.

I'm wondering if the LG connect will have the same reboot problems as the lg esteem.. If not i'd consider getting it. If the price was good.

EXACLTLY. This Attain has a 3.5" screen, while our Esteem has 4.3" screen. Also the Attain has a smaller camera (3megapixels) vs the Esteem's 5 megapixels.

Even the Connect only has a 4" screen.

I'm waiting the for the Esteem 2 coming out later this year with bigger screen, dual core CPU. Verizon is getting their version of the Revolution 2 (called the Spectrum) this quarter. That's why they are end-of-life'ing the LG Revolution. So, we'll get our version a few months later, just like we got the Esteem.

Is a tough choice huh...but if you haven't gotten any yet, then you have the advantage of getting the connect.

I think I'll go with the Connect for the simple fact that I have an Admire right now and I want something with more power and speed. I've been considering the Esteem, but its a bit on the large side for me. I like the compactness of the Connect. I'm just waiting for the pricing now.

and another big step is, ithas 1gb ram install and has double what the esteem have, but to keep the price tag low, it might come with 512 mb.
