    I am seriously thinking of going from an incredible to fascinate. Im not a big fan of the build quality of the Inc. I recently purchased the Inc and its in new condition, so I know its a manufacturing issue. Also the battery life is pretty bad. My main gripe is the ball call quality. I do have cyanogen7 on it rooted. 2.3 is nice but does lock up now and then. Has anyone here made the switch from a a dinc to fascinate and have any input on what is better or worse bet the two?

    I notice a lot of complaints with GPS. I do use it quite a bit so that might be annoying.

    Rooting and romming seems a bit more involved, but I can deal with that.

    Thank you in advance.

    The latest update seemed to have fix GPS issues, at least for me. I use GPS for a few hours a day, about 4 days a week, no issues at all now.

    It does have a better screen than INC, (Super-AMOLED compared to AMOLED), it definitely have a better battery life too.

    ROMs wise, not that much choices comparing to INC.

    GPS is fixed, that is good to know!

    I have the slcd screen so S-AMOLED will be a great improvement.

    The only time I would probably Rom is when a 2.3 is available and fully functional. I know Cyanogen 7 is in the works, but not yet polished. Maybe when that is 100% I will jump on it. Otherwise for now I can deal with 2.2.

    I had the AMOLED version of DINC, even i can see the difference!


    CM 7 is almost done, except MMS and phantom ringer. That's it. I'm running it now.

    I went from a dinc to a bolt to the fascinate and the fascinate is the best. Great battery life, great screen, great size to weight ratio also. Overall its a better phone for sure, my gps is also perfect
