    You can disable touchwiz can't you?
    Otherwise you can root the Galaxy S easily.
    Aye and you can root it. I hate how iPhone copy it is though, I'm buying a new phone because I'm bored of my iPhone.

    My mate has one and I threw Launcher Pro on it and it worked fine, got rid of the Touchwiz stuff. Hmmm. Temptation eh? Might see what the Desire HD is like.

    It's a more solid design (aluminium) but isn't as powerful.

    Thanks for the thumbs up :yy:

    I can't get much info on this mobile or any any up new coming ones, perhaps I'm looking in the wrong places :dontknow:

    Is it me or does the user interface look dry on the G2 :holmes:

    Nope. I didn't even see the interface tbh.

    But the Desire HD has a much different back plate to the HD2.

    Desire HD vs Desire Z?

    Like the idea of keyboard for taking full advantage of screen size, but omnomnom the specs of the Desire HD. And it looked soooo smooth in the video. Desire Z looked sweet, but seemed to lag a lil?

    And you wonder how an 800MHz processor can survive in a world where clock speeds are going to increase
