    I have both and I use my motion as my daily driver but the connect is pretty cool just expect to be charging the battery alot. Both have there good and bad so its hard to say.:eek:
    If possible you should use the connect for a few days and see if you like it or not

    Only plus on the connect is they have CM7 and other gingerbread ROMs and an unlocked bootloader. Oh and a bigger screen that I heard is just as good as the S3's screen graphics wise.

    Connect is better in almost every way IMO. Sure the Motion has a little better hardware, but with some minor tweaking, the connect performs pretty much on par. I prefer Gingerbread to ICS (Flash support, Apps2SD, better app support), the screen is heads and tails better (not only bigger but it looks SO crisp and clean compared to the Motions), with said performance tweaks and a battery from an LG Viper ala Verizon ($20 or so) it gets the same battery life as the Motion (mine got about 72 hours of standby just like my Motion), and my Motion has alot of bugs that I never encountered with any other android phone and that apparantly alot of other people are having as well (random restarts, apps not working, etc). When my Connect got stolen, it was no longer on sale and I couldnt justify spending $300 on the Connect when the Motion (with slightly better hardware) was only $180, so I got the Motion. If I had to do it all over again, I would have just waited until I found a Connect for cheaper.

    I doubt that about the battery l life I use a motion battery in my connect and maybe get 12 hours. Battery on connects sucks bad. And scrolling on the motion is way better and smoother than the connect even with the scrolling tweaks. Don't get me wrong I love my connect but I think very soon the motion is gonna be rocking!

    Lol. This is like trading a Ferrari for a Fiero, because you get more options.

    its more akin to trading a lotus, a tiny small cramped speedy thing for an escalade, it isnt as fast but it still gets you there when you need and plenty of options, space, and extras ;)

    but seriously ics and the cpu is the ONLY thing the motion has going for it. the connect is more than capable of running cm9/10/10.1 if they had someone to work on it

    Im gonna get it and work in it i think is easier that work on the motion since you can compile cm and use cm kernel too and the fact that you dont have to use the unbricking guide every time you test something

    Yeah, I see what you mean. I guess I just don't understand wanting to downgrade (in terms of CPU and OS), just to go back to that OS. I know the screen is better, and a little more customization is there. But it doesn't seem like a much better choice. X.x

    If you switch to a connect 4G, you're basically giving up a better CPU, GPU, and a modern OS for a bigger screen. I don't think it's worth it.

    Yeah. That's right. I still have my Optimus M that I can fully customize (but with the freezing issue and 600mhz cpu), I just leave it alone.

    Nevertheless, having one to use and one to mess with is never a bad idea.

    Actually its true. My connect with stock ROM de-bloated with the Black Plague kernel, with two cpu profiles (high performance with screen on, battery saving with screen off) running juice defender, with JIT enabled and a slim high cap battery off a LG Viper (not only do the factory batteries for the Connect suck and overheat, but the Viper one has almost 500 mAh more capacity) I could easily get 3 days of idle time and about 6-10 hours of heavy gaming. And with said tweaks (and some other kernel and build.prop tweaks) it played every game I threw at it just as fast and smooth as my Motion can with better graphics. The Motion just doesnt have enough of a hardware improvement to make it better than the Connect, so unless you have to have the smallest phone available with decent hardware, the Connect is the better choice hands down.
