Non-removable battery is a nonissue for me as I have never used replacement batteries - I use an external power pack that is much more versatile with dual USB outputs. As for bootloader - I am based in the UK and bootloader will be unlockable. ONLY VZW have decided to have it locked completely, all other version will be unlockable.

I'm using a Nook Color running MIUI Phiremod v2, and couldn't be happier with it. I can OC to 1.3ghz without issue, though for general browsing I keep it lower to save battery. For phone duty I'm loving my relatively low end LG Optimus V. It's the little phone that could, performing well above what the specs would suggest.

I am just waiting for the day when we can tap the usb out and connect an external DAC. That's really the only thing on my Android wishlist.

I'm trying to decide if I like my LG Optimus V, or my Sansa E260 better. I'm currently running:

 

LG Optumus V running IHO CM 7.1, Poweramp 2.1, DSP Settings: Stereo X @30%, Extreme Bass Boost enabled.

Sansa E260 Rockboxed, EQ off, no replaygain, no crossfeed.

Another Optimus V user! How does your do with armature based IEMs? Any hissing or static? I'm on stock firmware and I'm finding it a bit too noisy in some cases but pretty good with dynamic IEMs or bigger cans.

Zero noise from my pl11 and 30.

I wamt to run cm7 desperately, but my phone refuses to charge.

Galaxy S with an external amp (Fiio E7, if you must know ;-) ).

 

The performance is brilliant, but I'm thinking of getting a dedicated PMP, since I'm trying to conserve the battery on my phone.

I have Samsung Galaxy Gio. I use it to do weird things like calls and text messages. Those are ways to communicate with other people also using these portable phones. = ) Well, I sometimes browse the web and use e-mail, must admit.

 

EDIT: My 500th post!

I was window shopping a Razr today, and it looked pretty sweet.

Will be a galaxy nexus when it arrives, should be sent off this friday.

 

There was a volume issue with a lot of the handsets, that when used in the 900mhz gsm band it would go nuts.

 

Anyway it's been sorted with a software fix, and reportedly the sq from the hp out is very good!!

 

Can't wait to amp it up.

Yeah, I've been doing some research and the G Nexus looks more my speed.

I've actually been going the other way.  The hardware is a bit anemic and the benchmarks haven't been too impressive.  Clearly Samsung didn't want to step on their own galaxy S2 toes.  I might just wait for the ICS update or maybe go Windows Mango if the external dock proves useful, doubt it.

^ I've been reading up on smart phones and as this is my first, I wonder if the android system might be too complicated. Otoh, I think the smaller screen on the iPhone will be a turn off.

Android is both extremely open-ended, and simplistic and easy to learn.

 

There are tons of very well-written guides for the more difficult things.

If you feel no urge to customize, Android is as simple as any other phone. It has a menu with shortcuts for apps and that is it.
