If it really does launch with rumored specs I just might then hopefully an ICS ROM will become available for it or it will be officially updated to it.

ummm... The linked article said there will be a Sprint and a VZW version. Actually, they make it sound like they are extrapolation the MetroPCS info by conglomeration from what they know of the other two...

I waited on the esteem. The metro store I go to always gives me the heads up and they told me right then, not to buy it. They told me a dual core phone was coming and to wait. I'm so glad I listened to them! From what I have been reading, the Esteem's battery sucks just as much as the indulge. Even tho I dont really care for LG I want the dual core, and the front facing camera, oh and the wiFi hotspot.

It is nowhere close to being as bad as the Indulge. With the Gingersteem rom I can go all day on a single charge. The Indulge would die on the bus ride to my college.

Does anyone know what the processor is inside the Connect? I know it's a 1.2ghz dual core, but is there any word on which one it is?

And yeah, I'm absolutely gonna make the switch. The battery life on my indulge is simply unacceptable. Hopefully the Connect's is better. I don't really care too much about that, though. Those two cores have already sold me. I'm just playing the waiting game now.

I would buy it but i have a problem... my hands an fingers are big, for me having a touch only phone with no physical keyboard would put me in a tedious rage. Unless I found an app that had extra big letters or something. So im kinda limited... :-(

Your fingers must not be that big if you can use the keyboard on the Indulge. It's too small for my fingers and I actually prefer using the touchscreen on my Esteem (much larger keys).

This. I routinely got 12-13 hours out of my Indulge when I was running Basix ROM. And that was with a regular (non-extended life) battery!

I really think that the so called "bad name" of the Indulge comes from people who are Doing It Wrong.

Default Not Going to make the jump just yet....

I'm gonna wait and make sure there are no issues rooting this phone like there were with the Indulge. Once it's rooted, and some good ROMs are ready for it, I'll probably make the switch. '

Who knows, maybe by then the price will drop too.

I'm really thinking about getting the connect on the next month or two but I would like to see a battery life comparison between the indulge and connect. If someone is able to test them for example finding an ~30 minute youtube video and replaying it on both over LTE to see which phone holds out longer.

Default Just bought the Connect

So I've been a long time Indulge user. Rooted and upgraded to BASIX rom and ElectricSheep. Even bought one of those double capacity batteries from china. Gotta say that I've had fun with it for it's time but all good things must come to an end...

Just went out and bought the LG Connect earlier today and so far this thing has blown me away! The dual core processor is a BEAST. Ran antutu benchmarks and it outperforms even the HTC evo3d and a few tablets. Havent tested the bettery life fully yet but I'm impressed so far. Way better than stock indulge. To top it all off, k0nane (creator of BASIX and electricsheep) has already rooted this thing. Been out less than a week and gettin tons of love from the masters.

As much fun as I've had with my Indulge, I now have a new love and I'm sad to say that I must leave it for the newer/younger model. I do wish all the best for all the current Indulge users and still give mad props to the developers out there working hard to get 2.3 Gingerbread ported over, or even CM7. Good luck to all and to all a good night.

I too was sad to see that Metro decided to EOL our beloved (hated? lol) Indulge. I have had a lot of fun following (and where I could, supporting) it's development. The Indulge was my first Android phone and I will always have fond memories of logging into IRC from my laptop from various bars and McDonalds because my main internet (the phone) was down for one reason or another.

I picked up a Nook Tablet and use that now for most things I did on my phone before (reading / doing research / web browsing, checking email, etc.). In fact, other than the actual phone functions, I basically use my phone as a modem nowadays. It's just so much nicer (more screen real estate, etc.) to work using the tablet.

I plan on keeping my Indulge until it dies, as I paid the full $400 for it when it first came out, and it still suits my needs just fine. Alas, as it is now EOL, so sooner or later I will need to find a replacement. Also, many friends and family always ask me to recommend a Metro phone, so that has brought me back here to get current on the latest offerings again.

I will watch to see how development comes along on these new phones. One of the biggest reasons I have stayed with the Indulge all along has been because of the development support we (eventually) received. So going forward, I will look to see what k0 (and others?) are doing before deciding on my next phone. Where the developers go, I will follow. For without them, we will only ever have whatever crap the carriers decide to foist upon us.
