Upgrading from Desire

Recommended Posts

I've had my Desire for a couple years now and it is still running strong with ICS BCM rom its very stable and such but i'm thinking of upgrading. I was wondering what should i upgrade to (which phone can be rooted easily and has good ROM support) or should i wait abit for a better phone to come?

I'm in the same situation as you. I've been extending the life of my desire for a while now with new ROMs. I have been eyeing up the Galaxy S3 which we can pre-order soon. Still $300 with a $100 mail in rebate. I think as long as the BCM ICS rom is running stable for me I'm going to keep my desire until the price drops.

Definitely the Galaxy S3. You can pre-order it now.

I'm just anticipating the roms and mods that will come out.

I sure hope that a LOT more people migrate to USC now. That will help the community of "stock is hating" scoundrels grow!

But there will be a cdma gs3, on Verizon. So the Verizon roms can be ported, like the sprint photon roms were ported for the electrify.

The Desire has been a great phone, and I have been running Phoenix Rom for over a year with no problems and I still really enjoy it.

I upgraded to the SGSII and about a week later the rumors started that the SGSIII was coming so I took a chance and returned it. Glad I did now, on pre-order is a White 32gb.

I may change over to ICS on the Desire the last couple of weeks to get used to it before the SGSIII comes in. I really believe the SGSIII is worth the upgrade over Desire.
