    im looking at moving over to the android from iphone and have my eye on a HTC Vivid from att, its the first LTE phone from att, but im not buying it for that since i dont have 4g service here. my question is has anyone had any bad experiences with HTC or can someone else recommend another phone?

    LOVE MY SAMSUNG GALAXY S II. I would recommend it over any other phone.

    HTC Sense is like an extension of my brain :). Seriously easy to use.

    If you haven't ever used an HTC phone, I would check one out. They are known for being very simple. I highly recommend.

    My wife and I both have HTC Incredibles. So far so good. I'm not a fan of touch screen though, wish it had the keyboard like the moto droids do.

    I think I am going to get that one as well. The specs are unbelievable.

    I'm kinda in the same boat since my wife can get us deals on most phones except the ipone. Which has a lot of flaws. But better than nothing. Guy at work loves his Galaxy. To bad it's a tmoble. I just want a bigger touch screen without the flaws.

    I have the HTC Inspire. Other than the shitty battery life and occasional freezes from the apps I love it. I can't complain that I was the 1st to have this phone in my county. I guess thats what you pay for getting the first models.

    I run the droid x2 by motorolla and have had the Droid x. I hated motorolla before the droids came out. Have enjoyed them with Droid.

    This is for anyone that can help. I am looking at getting a new cell phone here pretty soon since I still have an old school Samsung Memoir thats like 3 years old!! I use T-Mobile as my provider and was looking at the HTC AMAZE and the Samsung Galaxy S II but have no experience with either of them. I was hoping to get some input on which one would be better for me. Thanks in advance!!:)
