Default is optimus slider better than optimus v?

Thinking of getting the optimus slider,i have the optimus v now,im wondering is it worth it? I like a keyboard but not enough if the phone has problems or glitches,has anyone upgraded and wished they didnt?

There's more ROMs available for the OV. My wife has the OS and it's pretty solid.

The slider has a faster processor, but the V has a dedicated graphics chip that makes up for it.

the slider doesn't? So basically it's the Intercept all over again?

Exactly. That's why when the wife's Intercept died we got her the Wildfire S.

Her phone feels really snappy. I have Mobstergunz rom on there only and I don't think there's any performance enhancements.
