I'd actually consider a PS3 compatible Android phone!

I rarely play games on my phone, but the thought of playing my ps3 games that are playable online (and connected through my ps account) is awesome!

I have often wondered about this. I know someone on xda had at one point hacked certification to work on any device but I have not taken the time to play with it.

The short answer... Yes. It is a huge downgrade (and I generally like Moto hardware and hate all HTC phones).

Have you tried SwiftKey X? It has the best predictive text of any keyboard, period.

Thanks! I am not rooted and don't plan to do so. I do like my LTevo, but the MoPho was one of my favorite devices so far. I may try to sell my LTevo and pick up the Q.

Check it out in store first for sure. Spend a good amount of time with it, then decide IMO

Unless u prefer a physical qwerty, I'd suggest sticking with LTEvo. Specs are not as good on the mopho q

Considering all the LG gripes I've heard, it sure is doing well as far as sales.

FYI - For those of you that plan on purchasing the Photon Q, Best Buy's system is having issues allowing reps to pre-order the phone. I've already tweeted Best Buy and emailed to notify them of the issue, but as of right now, there's no way to pre-order through Best Buy (until they fix the system).

Going back a few posts about the Samsung Note and flexible screens. I would love to see it turn out like this Nexus concept.



But I know it won't.

Speaking of Samsung, the Galaxy Note 10.1 unboxing today in NYC left me kind of disappointed. Still a good tablet, but the resolution eh

Apparently, HTC signed on in June...but I don't see LTEvo mentioned:

If LTEvo was compatible, it sure would get another + in my books.

I rather enjoy it

It's a solid phone. Love that it's all metal and not plastic.

Very good thread, which has ties to this rumor thread, discussing "how Sprint phones are born" w/ an article that explains it from Phonescoop:

I doubt it, but even if it did come to the USA and or Sprint carries such a thing, I wouldn't buy it.

For me, I'm not touching another Lenovo. After they took the Android Thinkpad tablet and locking up the bootloader, not supplying updates for it, and then making the tablet into a Windows one (thus no more Thinkpad Android tablet) they can kiss my butt.

Thanks for the info, ts. Funny thing is, in considering what tablet I decide to go with as my replacement for the Flyer that I sold back on the Best Buy Buy Back program, I'm actually considering the Microsoft Surface. The more I realized it, the Surface seems to suit my needs better for work purposes (of course, I have to see how the note taking accuracy is on that thing, prior to deciding). For me, it's a choice between the Surface and Note 10.1.

That said, I'm still curious about Lenovo in the phone world...not that I'd get it, but just curious.

For those of you that have been considering the MoPho Q and happen to be Best Buy rewardszone members, you can pre-order through https://rewardzonemobile.com/
Here's the thing, it's affiliated with Best Buy, but not necessarily a "direct" link to Best Buy, so exchanges do seem to be a little more involved (in the event anything is wrong). I checked with a local store and they said they'd price match, if the stores list at $199

Oh yeah, the whole reason I'm mentioning this is, rewardzonemobile.com has the MoPho Q listed at $149.

Thanks, TS...man, that thing is humongous. I'm still taking it into consideration, but every time I've gone into Best Buy the past couple days, I just didn't feel comfortable trying to hold the Note 1. If the Note 2 is really slightly narrower and thinner, that might help my comfortability factor.

The thoughts of the 64gb SGS 3 are running around in my head too...as well as the white LTEvo w/ the kickstand (which i honestly think I'll miss, if I decide not to get the LTEvo).

First review I've seen on the Moto Photon Q, by Phill Nickinson (one of the better reviewers, in my opinion). More of a brief overview than a complete review; regardless, if you're into sliders, the Photon Q looks like its going to be pretty solid. Guess we'll find out more Sunday.

Same here.
And if it has all the goodies from the S3 and the Note 10.1 like multiview, floating viewer, better S-pen, enhanced S-Note, etc I am going to be so happy.

The Spec's impress, no doubt. But this video says its multi-OS. I doubt that!

Yeah, many seem to still be skeptical about LG's support, but I'm willing to give it a shot if it really does come with all the specs. I don't know where the 50mp camera talk came from in the description on that video because the video itself says 13mp camera at one point, but then there's another spec page that says something about the camera that you can't really tell if it's a #5 or the letter "S". I'm definitley waiting for this to be released, prior to making my upgrade decision, but assuming most (if not all) the specs stick, it's definitely a top contender, along with LTEvo, SGS 3 (64gb...if it comes out), & SG Note 2.

Yeah, the video was posted back in May, so I don't think all of them will necessarily translate to what is actually released.

This article is just re-iterating all that had been said in past articles, but seeing all the rumored specs, especially the removable 2100mah stock battery...it's seriously a contender for me:

LG Eclipse LS970 Passes Through FCC, Comes To Sprint in October*-*Eastern Morning Herald

The most definitive date that had been mentioned in some early articles was 10/31 (Halloween), but I'm wondering if it'll be earlier, since it already passed through the FCC.

I would love a September release to directly compete with iphone 5 (it has the specs to do so), but I believe it'll be October.

REALLY looking forward to this phone... really the only superphone sprint has on its lineup through YTD as far as I've heard. I know we have a long time before then.

Maybe it was meant more-so to compete with the Galaxy Note 2? They already released the Viper earlier in the summer, so this could be the Sprint version of the Optimus Vu (just slightly smaller). Just throwing out theories.
I was looking over the dimensions again and the more I look at them in comparison to others, they're weird, but not really dimensions of a Phablet. Here are the phones I compared:

LG Eclipse (LS970)
130.9 X 71.6 X ???

Bigger (as in tall and wide) Superphones
SGS 3 - 136.6 X 70.6 X 8.6
LTEvo - 134.8 X 68.9 X 8.9
LG Optimus 4X - 132.4 X 68.1 X 8.9

Phablets
LG Optimus Vu - 139.6 X 90.4 X 8.5
SG Note - 147 X 83 X 10

By comparison, with the dimensions that were listed on the FCC leak, the height and width are closer to superphone size than phablet size. That said, it's extremely short at 130.9 compared to 136.6 and 134.8 (on the SGS 3 and LTEvo respectively), but is closer to the height of the Optimus 4X HD (132.4). The width is wider than the SGS 3 by 1mm.

My thinking, based purely on the dimensions listed on the FCC, is that it will end up being thinner than the LG Optimus Vu, which is extremely thin at 8.5mm. So, if you combine that with the shorter height, but slightly wider...it actually might be very easy to hold that phone as compared to the other superphones. We'll see. I'm excited to see how it stacks up with all the specs and feel. From that older leaked video, from back in May, it might be very nice. The other thing, about the weird dimensions is, with the shorter height, I'm assuming no capacitive buttons because there's no way a 4.67 inch screen would fit that height if there were capacitive buttons.

-EDIT- It's actually very close in size to the Razr Maxx, as far as height, but the Razr Maxx has capacitive buttons and only a 4.3 inch screen.

Okay, so maybe I'll be holding out to see if any of these Nexii phones (Is that how Nexus would be pluralized?...LOL) make it to Sprint:

New Nexus rumors heat up, DoCoMo doc suggests handsets from LG, Sony, Samsung

Sony's phones have always intrigued me with their styling. Since I'm already considering the LG Eclipse, why not a Nexus version? I'd probably prefer the Galaxy Nexus 2 over the Galaxy S 3, just because I don't care for touchwiz and would likely use one of the ICS launchers, but I'd love the options if Sprint offers them up.

Since this goes in the line with deciding on new phones, including rumored phones...for those of you that have been itching to get a deal on the Class 10 Sandisk Micro, check out Amazon's Gold deal today!

Gold Box Deal of the Day: Save on SanDisk Memory

$49.99 with free shipping That's a steal. And it's the Class 10 version, not the original Class 6 that was released.

Pass on the info!

The link isn't working for me.

Anyway, as you know I'm pulling the trigger on 9/1/2012 to get the LTEvo. I know this LG looks awesome. It would be the only other phone I would be considering since I wouldn't go for the GSIII. I like having a removable battery, but it seems like those who have the LTEvo have learned to live with it.

I have a loaner LG Marquee and I don't like it at all. The screen lags a lot. It feels very cheap. But I really loved my LG Rumor 2. That was (is) a solid phone. I still have it as a backup.

Puts things in perspective when it comes to these superphones, right? Before, the marquee might've been considered a decent phone...LOL.

No problemo! Just wish I would've been patient enough to wait for deals like this. It's okay though. Ordered another and the other 64 will go in whichever tablet I decide to get down the line.

If this is confirmed info, the Eclipse just might have jumped into the lead:

I actually don't know. From what I've seen, LG has a bit of the old reputation that samsung had, but from this last article and leaked pics, if that's really what the lg eclipse looks like and the specs are true, it's probably my choice for upgrade if i'm not ready to take the note 2 leap.

The more I'm hearing, the more I'm intrigued by what LG is doing and if the Eclipse will be parralel to the Optimus G. If everything is the same on the Eclipse w/ exception to the 4.7 inch screen (Sprint's Eclipse is supposed to be 4.67), that is definitely the device that is top of my list. This newest article has me even more intrigued than the other one I posted:

The LG Optimus G will have an all new True HD IPS+ display, new battery

I dunno. I'm resisting being attracted by the shiny. The specs of the Optimus look fantastic, but if the support isn't there I'm not touching it. My old LG feature phone (the Lotus) was pretty nice, but the last LG Android phone I played with (don't even recall the name) was godawful. Reserving judgment for now.
