It's that time of the year again. When I go running through the new phone threads, and try to make my choice on what I'm going to be upgrading to. So I have a few questions I hope you guys can answer, that haven't been answered, or that I couldn't find. First off, heres what I understand the problems to be with this phone. And please correct me if I am wrong! I understand there is a problem with dropped calls on SOME phones, but not all. I also understand there is some sort of discrepancy between the bars shown on the screen, and the actual signal the radio is receiving. It's a bit confusing, but I think I understand this is is also only plaguing some phones, not all.
My questions are as follows; I live a very active life style. Riding a motorcycle, running as a hobby, constantly outdoors, and I'll be joining the military soon. So I'm wondering, how rugged is this phone? I'm currently rocking a D2G, and I do try to keep it nice, but let's face it, drops happen. The D2G has not let me down yet, and Id like to find a phone just as resilient.
Secondly, I enjoy my music. A lot. So how is the sound quality on this phone? Both on speaker, and headphones. I'm not expecting studio quality music, but I would like a nice crisp sound while I run, or just sit back and listen.
Third, I have not seen much about it, but how are the ROMs on this phone? I looked through the ROMs sub-board, and there really isn't much going on. Is everything mostly in development, or is there just not much out for this phone yet?
If I have missed anything, please feel free to include it in your responses. Thanks for all your help!
P.S. I will be posting this same thread in the HTC Rezound board, and the Razr board. So If anyone here has had experience with either of those phones, please post a comparison! thanks!
