So i've decided it's time to ditch my HTC Tytn II and want to get an Android phone, almost got a Dell Streak but O2 messed me about so I gave up but in the meantime i've come across this phone.
Haven't seen on in the flesh yet but from the pics i've seen it looks lovely and pretty much what i'm after, however i've seen people mentioning things like Samsung propietary rfs and odin setup, I have no idea what that means and how it would affect the phone (and future custom ROMS)
Any suggestions? Should I look at getting this or wait for something else?
I think if you're looking at Android, the i9000 is a good phone, and certainly the Nexus One is a winner. Moto Droids are fairly good, the Droid X looks like an i9000 competitor (screen size wise). I've currently got a Nexus One, but ordered the i9000 last week, purely because of the 4" Super Amoled screen. The main draw back of the N1 is the screen out doors. If you can live with it, then of all of the phones, go a N1 (or Desire is another option)
Just remember that the only phone running 2.2 is the N1 right now, and you can be assured that the N1 (being a Google Phone) will have every single Android update before any other phone manufacturer on the market gets the SDK, which puts the N1 firmware updates around 6-12 months in front of everyone else!
