    HI ,

    I'm trying to decide on a new Android phone. I'm coming from the 2G iPhone and I had enough of that. I'm mainly moving because I hate how iPhone does notifications. I dislike how there is little information on the home screen. And my phone is slow. I need a smart phone because I actually sometimes need to draw Chinese characters on the screen when I don't know the character's sound. I also need my phone to have good music playback, OK camera, and be readable in direct sunlight (so no HTCs)

    I held the XT701, which looks just like the Motoroi XT720 AKA Milestone XT, but it has a 5MP camera. I really really like the look of this phone. Stylish and unique. I'm really iffy about audio quality (not that I heard complaints) and the display screen in sunlight.

    The XT701 is not expensive... 2600 RMB (Chinese currency). I suspect that Galaxy S (or some variant) will come on the market for about 3600 RMB (about USD$150 more)

    On the other hand, the Galaxy S is supposed to be The Best (except for maybe iPhone 4, after Apple fixes reception issues). Anyone have opinions?
