    Hi guys, after two years of bliss with my desire, it's renewal time. I think i'm leaning towards the htc One X quad core with CW. Read lots of reviews etc and have found some good deals for me. any thoughts or opinions much appreciated.

    ps, i'll still be hanging around the desire forums. ;)

    Are you not planning to wait for the Huwaei Ascend D XL? Or that too much time to wait?

    Just think of how fast and how good your Desire is and can more speed memory improve anything. As has already been mentioned you need to think of size too, I have a Desire S which is as big a phone as I want, any bigger and I'd be asking Susan for a loan of a handbag to carry it around.

    I've 3 days left of my 2 year contract and I don't really fancy any of what's available just now. So I'm going SIM only for a few months to see what turns up. I've only just rooted my Dessy so it's like having a new toy anyway. :D

    sooooooo jealous, ive still got 5 months to wait yet :mad:
    but i cant decide if i should go sgs3, htc 0ne or the acend D? but as ive got plenty of time ill have a very good look around.
    i just hope which ever has a good developer following like the desire, and a dedicated group of informative helpful folk like there is here.

    Well in 5 months' time you'll know what sort of developer support those handsets have. Of course there will probably be something else by then (the next Nexus should be on the horizon by then, I guess, though let's fact it, that'll probably lack an SD slot...).

    The One X already has a fair range of ROMs, and I'm sure the S3 will garner substantial developer support (because I'm sure it will be a very popular phone). You'd think that the Ascend D Quad would attract attention too, for the same reasons it's caught people's eyes here, but I don't know whether it's quite the certainty that the other 2 are.

    I've been following the One X forum since its release to see how it panned out and what people thought of it, problems they have etc., and they seem like a really nice bunch of friendly helpful folks, so I guess it's an android thing, and whichever phone you choose people will be helpful.

    The only differentiation will likely be how many people develop for it and use it, with the more popular phones building a more comprehensive knowledge and resource base. I see the Ascend D Quad as the one that might suffer in this regard, as the One X is already enjoying huge popularity, and the SGS3 is likewise going to have huge numbers of people all over it.

    Ah well i doubt you will have it for yourself dan, lol
    I really like the look of the sgs3, especially as it has an sd slot and removable battery.
    But I can't see samsung releasing another huge smart phone before October when I'm due, unless they have a sgs3s like some other manfacturer lol.
    And you can guarantee the samsung should have a good dev following.
    I've not looked into the rooting side of the newer htc's yet, but it's on my list of to do's

    yep, they seem a friendly bunch. quite a few roms being developed too. Seems there's a lot of ex desire owners there.
