    I have had my Desire since April of last year. I will be looking for a new Android phone in the next 2 to 3 months, and the one I really like the look of presently is the Sony Ericsson Arc.

    Are some of you already planning to replace your Desire with something new, and if so with what??

    Personally not going anywhere near SE after the Xperia X10 fiasco (soo please it was delayed and I got the Desire instead).

    But there's nothing interesting out there at the moment. If I was forced to replace my Desire today..? Desire HD, or Desire Z. Nothing else comes close imo.

    Mine's only a month or so old so not looking. But if I was going to upgrade now it would either be the DHD or HTC Inspire 4G.

    Tempted by the lg optimus 2x myself. I like the idea of hdmi out for quick web browsing on a large tv.

    My dilemma is do I do a phone upgrade or buy an upcoming tablet. Don't think I can do both...

    In many ways with hdmi out im leaning towards updating phone but an android tablet is tempting.

    I don't think I'll be replacing my Desire soon but if I had to I would go for the upcoming Motorola Atrix :)

    If I had to replace my phone today........ hard to say. The Desire HD would be an obvious choice but I like the 3.7" screen more than a 4.0"+ screen - easier to use in one hand.

    I guess it would probably be a coin toss between the Nexus S and the Desire HD, and I'd have to get used to the screen size ;)

    The Nexus S can be used with one hand easily. I personally think the DHD is a little too big.

    +1 for the Atrix.

    One of my best friends is head of Android product development for Motorola and I had a play with this phone over xmas and it's stunning.

    Can't wait to get one.

    I've still got about 18-19 months left on my contract, in which time superphones will be plentiful, so it's hard to say really.

    Well I really have not replaced my Desire but supplemented it with the Dezire Z that I ordered today, I wanted to give it a little vacation for awhile and see what the fuss was all about with the Desire Z plus I like the keyboard also.So replace no just put away for awhile, it will always be one of the best phone's I have ever owned, even better than the Nexus One that I had!!!:D So hopefully this will prolong the lifetime of my Desire!!

    Due for an upgrade in a few weeks (Feb) So... Hmmm...

    Quite liked the HTC Win7 phone, but after getting one as an upgrade for Daughter, I DO NOT like the OS, although the one piece alloy body is nice, and the speakerphone is much improved...

    Am leaning towards the Desire HD at the mo, not a fan of SE or Motorola and my prev Samsung Omnia HD, although good, was blighted by buggy and slow software releases/updates..

    One thing for certain, it will be another Android, and thats for sure...

    I got my Desire last April, Contract free. I thought it was the perfect phone for me at the time, and couldn't imagine replacing it for a long time. The Desire HD and the Desire Z, as well as many other subsequently released phones, didn't interest me, but after an initial 'meh' response to the Nexus S I realised I was starting to get cravings about having one :)

    Replaced my Desire with one yesterday. No regrets.

    I felt the same way you did, the Z and HD didn't do anything for me, glad you're happy with your choice, see you on the NS boards!

    I quite like the look of the LG Optimus Black with that lovely Nova display. At the moment its between the Sony Ericsson Arc and the LG Optimus Black.

    Had mine since April last year and when i upgrade it will only be to something Dual Core and stock android (whatever that is by then) in answer to your question, probably the successor to the Nexus S!

    Not sure, this thread has been an eye-opener with the LG. I was only this morning thinking, hmmm, i'm not playing with my phone as much, wander what will be out soon/next. I've had it nearly a year, still a while to go, but my G/F wants one come April, so a swap might be available.

    Ive been thinkin the exact same thing, due for an upgrade in a month, went into some phone shops and all they could recommend was the DHD,
    The problem with looking at stuff from CES is that it may never be released in the UK.
    Im leaning towards the SE Arc, awesome looking phone, and shouldnt suffer as much from updates due to the having the mediascape and timescape as seperate applications rather than part of the OS this time.
