Just got a Samsung Intercept the other day, great phone, I love everything about it so far, even the battery life is better than I expected, and I use my phone a lot, pretty much all day.

Ah, I dont have an android phone yet (my contract with Verizon doesnt end until February) but I really want a Droid Incredible. But since so many new android phones are coming out (Galaxy S/Fascinate, new HTC qwerty slider supposedly coming out early next year, Droid 2) I might change my mind. I would still be extremely happy if someone gave me an outdated G1 cause I think Android is so cool (I currently have a LG Versa, DONT EVER BUY AN LG PHONE.)

I have a Motorola Backflip. It's on 1.5 and i feel like I'm missing out on so much android offers buy being stuck at Cupcake.. But I do love what i can do and it completely destroys my friends Iphone. Also, i have a physical QWERTY board, so thats a bit of a plus and makes emulators easier to use.

Okay, so I'm due for an upgrade in nine days, and I'm going for an Android device (on Verizon).

I am absolutely torn among the HTC Incredible, the Droid X and the Droid 2.

Tell me which one to get and why. GO!

Beg to differ, Android phones don't even touch the polish and app store of iPhones. Not to mention the battery life, I can use it all day playing games and stuff and still have plenty of life left while I heard the Droid X only gets a few hours of life. The only thing I like about android phones are there "open-sourceness" but that come back to bite them when viruses start emerging for smartphones.

No... they don't.

Google makes the operating system, they don't make the phones, nor do they manage the networks...

I'm just sayin.

Now does that say anything about the phone, or the people buying hte phones?

Wanna know a little something about iPhones? Or the ipod touch (both regular and over-large versions)? The security flaw that allows one to jailbreak it just by going to a website and sliding a little slider, can currently only be fixed by jailbreaking it so you can download a fix not made by apple.

Now don't get me wrong, the iPhone is beautiful, and Apple makes great software, but I will never ever buy an Apple product quite simply because I am not allowed to do as I please with my phone. I can only do as I please with the things Apple allows me to have, and considering that I'm studying computer science, and will quite possibly design my own mobile apps in the coming years, the ability to actually see the source code for hte operating system i'm writing for - without having to pay the maker for a mere opportunity to submit my app and hope it gets approved, only to then have it's potential market limited by the fact that it exists only on one device (though that does make hardware compatibility easy), which currently is only on a single carrier (in the US anyways), is very very appealing.

Bump, AndroidFags.

nice, I've got a HTC Legend which I rooted as soon as I got it and I'm running CyanogenMod 6.1 as well.

its pretty damn awesome, and the Legend has great battery life. Not quite as quick as more recent handsets but certainly quick enough and still fully featured.

Some of my favourite apps:
AK Notepad
Autokiller
Barcode Scanner (must-have)
Clockr
FxCamera
Ringdroid
SoundHound
SwiFTP (wirelessly transfer files from your computer to your phone)

Sweet, I'm going to try the SwiFTP thing, it sounds really useful.

I for the most part have a Android phone.

I have T-Mobile's branded version of the HTC HD2 and while it came bundled with that horrific Windows Mobile 6.5 I've been running Android on it for the past three months with little fault. Android is simply awesome.

Awesomeness :3

I have an HTC Droid Incredible. And I have loved it since the day I got it last year for my birthday. The battery life took a while to train, but I get about 14 hours of use out of it everyday.

Easily the best phone I have ever owned.

Didn't have a choice, my friend. XD

I was contractually obligated to T-Mobile and my only choices at the time were the HD2 or the severely underpowered MyTouch3G

I have a Samsung Galaxy S. Great phone, but I guess I prefer normal buttons instead of touchscreen. It's a tactile thing...
