    I have Bells Galaxy S with the front faced camera. Iv noticed a bit of lag lately and its ticked me off. Iv dont the OCLF and still have a bit of lag. Another thing that bothers me is the lack of support that Samsung is giving.

    Iv looked at the HTX Evo 4G and Desire HD, how does the Galaxy S Comnpare to these, is the galaxy still better then these phones?

    Another question is could these phonjes be unlocked for my carrier in the great white north (Bell)

    Thanks in advanced

    :)

    I have an HTC Evo and its great, virtually no lag on stock or when I rooted. Just a solid device with good software and hardware. You'd be surprised just how envious people are of my kickstand. Web browsing is also heavenly... I'm sticking with my Evo for a long time.

    The Desire HD has better hardware, so yes. The Evo doesn't (I think) but these phones are from different areas. The Evo is USA and Desire HD is Europe.

    The Galaxy S has really good hardware though, you can try using launcherpro as your default launcher?

    Hard to say. As is the case with most of these threads, you've omitted what you specifically want/need so it's difficult to provide meaningful suggestions.

    You might want to start with troubleshooting your lag issue. If it's an app you're running then replacing the phone might not help or may only provide a slight improvement. I mean, for example, under the wrong conditions my Droid will crawl. Under the right conditions it will fly. Lagging doesn't necessarily mean that you need to replace the device outright.

    Check your apps before you look for a new phone I have the galaxy S Vibrant with Bell. I had a few crashes and some lag issues so I removed all the apps I installed when it started and it started acting like it did the day I got it.

    So check your apps before you go back to Bell and try to get out of your contract.

    Don't forget Samsung has said we will be getting our 2.2 update by the middle of Dec.

    You can unlock your phone there is a youtube video that shows you how. They use a Bell phone and unlock it to run it on Telus.
