    You mentioned the Galaxy S3 and Photon Q... The EVO LTE also just came out, and the LG Eclipse is on the way. All 4 would pry be considered "best of the best."

    It certainly has impressive specs. I've very interested to see how it pans out.

    I second that! It took me a while to decide and after a month of use, I'm really glad I went with the EVO.

    I'm more interested in what other manufactures bring to the table concurrent with the LG Eclipse. I suspect Samsung, Moto, and HTC are all cooking up quad core LTE phones for an end-year release.

    Same thing I am looking forward to.

    From what I have understood, all we are waiting on is sufficient cooling and lte compatibility

    I just hope its not the same as the LG Vu. That is one of the ugliest phones that I have ever seen.

    Very impressive specs, but as we all know - it's not always about the specs, but more the software.

    With this leak about the Verizon version of the Vu, my feeling is that Sprint will kinda have a hybrid version:
    Verizon LG Optimus Vu Images Leaked – More Confirmation of the Phoneblet’s Impending Launch

    By the dimensions that were on the FCC for the Eclipse, it seems like the Sprint version might be "skinnier" than the Verizon version, but still more in the realm of a Vu.

    Call me a negative nancy, but I'd never buy anything from LG. I've heard too many horror stories from users with their products.

    I had the same feeling about Samsung 2 years ago, but they obviously turned over a new leaf with the success of the SGS 2 and Galaxy Note, so every OEM can turn the corner for the good at anytime.

    That VU looks weird... sooo straight/sharp. Hopefully the Eclipse doesn't look exactly like this? I guess time will tell.

    I have an iphone 4s now, will probably get the iphone 5 if it comes out in September as rumored just to play around with it (sell my 4s for like $250-$300 and buy the iphone 5 for $500 or somethin online) then repeat in October if the Eclipse seems worthy because I'm pretty sick of Apple and now that they're eliminated everything Google... no thanks.

    Otherwise, I guess I'm waiting for the holiday period like everyone else

    Personally I am open to any company other than HTC, unless they make another Nexus...

    I went by Best Buy last night to put a pre-order on the Photon Q for my secondary line, but the SG Note 2 is something that I'm keeping on my radar. I checked out the Note 1 last night, and even though I still feel like it's still too big for a phone, I just might be okay with it, if I just use my headphones more often (I have a pair of beats audio ear-buds that are the OEM htc ear buds...purchased for sale on justamazing deals for cheap...and still haven't used them as much as I should).

    I really do like all the options available right now, but since it's the last 1 year upgrade, I'm being a little more patient just waiting for the entire line of phones to be out and available for comparison.

    Well, essentially, it is only $100. Every Sprint phone is coming with a $100 prepaid AmEx card right now when you order online.
    Purchase a smartphone online from Sprint, get a $100 AMEX gift card through 8/26

    Is the Photon Q a huge down grade from LTevo? I really liked the OG MoPho. I have been thinking about getting the MoPho Q, hoping it will operate like the OG MoPho. I miss the predictive text, the dial pad and some other features from Motorola.

    In my opinion there's no advantage it has over it.

    If your rooted moto isn't root friendly at all, although there's supposedly going to be a bootloader unlocker

    New Projection/Predictions:

    7/15 - White LTEvo
    8/19 - MoPhoQ (XT897)

    9/9 - LG Cayenne (LS860) ??? (If the ATT version hit the FCC already, I wouldn't be surprised if this is right behind)
    LG’s P870 Android smartphone hits the FCC, sports AT&T LTE, NFC |
    Sept.? - Galaxy Note 2 (Announcement 8/30)????
    This suspicious render could be the Samsung Galaxy Note 2

    10/31 - LG Eclipse (LS970) - Rumored release date ???
    LG Eclipse stops at the FCC on the way to Sprint
    11/18 - ???

    Count of LTE Devices out of 15 Sprint announced they would have by the end of 2012:
    4 Officially Released
    1 (MoPhoQ) on the way (and confirmed)
    1 (Cayenne) pics leaked and ATT version hit FCC, so it's on the way, but no release date confirmed
    1 (ZTE Flash) leaked ad sporting LTE connectivity
    1 (LG Eclipse) on the way (Hit FCC)
    2 phones projected for availability on Sprint (SG Note 2, iPhone 5)
