Hi guys, 

I currently have a HTC Desire, which is awesome by the way lol.

BUT, i have some kind of addiction with phones and i was going to get a I9000s but i dont want to chuck it on my account if its going to be disappointing lol.

I just want to know who thinks it will be better than my HTC Desire and why.

I like all the custom ROM's i can flash on the desire to make it way faster i know you can on the galaxy but you never really can tell if there as good untill you actually own one i think.

Thanks!! 


p.s. things like battery life, how "fluid" or smooth the phone is, i hate! jerky phones and with my desire running oxygen ROM its very smooth.

Agreed, if you have a Desire it's not worth the upgrade, save your money. Heaps of new phones are coming out soon from all different companies and the SGS is quite laggy and has bad battery life stock, definitely requires a custom rom. Get atleast 2 days out of mine on average use with my custom rom and kernel.

My SG-S is on "JPY" Android v2.2.1...stock, un-rooted with no lag-fixes. It's easily the best ROM I've had on the SG-S. Lag fixes simply are not needed on this ROM.

I'd compare it to the stock ROM on a Nexus One in term of smoothness and stability. That is high praise. It's fast, too. The SG-S still has one of the fastest (if not the fastest) video configurations of any phone.

One of my co-workers is on the NZ "JP3" ROM from Samsung directly in Auckland...They installed it for him after his JP2 nightmare via Kies....and he doesn't need a lag-fix for his JP3.  

I had my hands on an Acer Iconia Smart this evening.....4.8" screen (1024x480)....with an 8MP camera on the back and a second, lower-res camera on the front. It was a proto-type....running Gingerbread....It looks like a seriously cool phone. 

There are lots of cool phones coming. One my faves is the LG phone with 3D (2 cameras) capability.
