    I have a feeling HTC are going to try and make September their new release window like what they did with the Desire HD. I think it's almost certain they will come out with a dual/quad core this year the only problem is figuring out when. I would also not place too much emphasis on Sense, yeah it's great and I enjoy the nice little touches but Launcher Pro is a much better and fulfilling launcher. I would only recommend Sense to some who wants a smooth experience like that on Ios.
    Who does not want a smooth experience?

    I have a basic 2.1 phone, stripped bare, which I have now converted to Froyo on a japanese jellyfish rom, supposedly quicker processor than the HTC Legend, but after seeing a Legend in action over the period of a few months, I know for sure that if my next phone isn't by apple, it's by HTC. Nothing else compares, all the nice little touches, a typing/processing experience to rival/better Apple, and something that's incredible versatile. The Desire HD is too big, and the Legend a little too chunky, but the Desire is pretty much perfect atm. Usually HTC release window is May time? Desire, Legend, Wildfire all released around that time?

    It's the little touches, like the magnifying glass to edit words (like iPhone) and the integration of apps. The techradar review of the Incredible S kinda sums it up.

    By 'smooth' experience I mean not having to change anything, like right now I have Laucnher Pro and widget locker which means I have to fiddle around with things to get them to be just how I like it, and that's exactly what I have. Launcher pro is actually much smoother (since it's GPU accelerated) than Sense is.

    To be honest I forgot about that, I guess there are a lot of little things that they do that I take for granted.

    Desire S is coming soon (not sure when), Atrix, LG 2X
    (Desire S is the only one with a screen that's not 4 inches or bigger).

    Definitely. Now that I have a Nexus 1 I can use the trackball to scroll around text areas. This is a huge plus for me since I do a lot of posting and reading on carious forum aand news sites.

    I would say either the Nexus S, Desire HD, or... maybe a Galaxy S phone? I wouldn't really go for the Atrix right now; had one and although I loves the speed, the overall experience wasn't as fluid as i would have liked.

    I'm using a Nexus 1 right now and love it so much more; perfect phone in my opinion.

    Could this be the answer to all Motorola phone owners prayers? I hope so, because a custom ROM on an Atrix has potential.

    :confused:

    I've experienced all three phones and they all have equally responsive screens.

    The Desire HD trumps the Desire in almost every aspect, but it is pretty big. That's more than made up for with the size of the screen IMO. It's definitely not too big. You might also want to look into the Desire S that will be out next month.

    I've only played around on the hd but I imagine the thing you describe on the normal desire is also there on the hd... but honestly it's not worth getting rid of it for :P

    Touchscreen lag on a Desire?

    You're doing it wrong.

    It's not lag I imagine they're describing really, just a small difference in motion. I can't entirely describe it, but using an ios device straight after using my desire feels a bit "smoother", as noted I don't care though. It's barely anything.

    I'd imagine that's the difference between a hardware accelerated UI vs a software rendered UI.

    A Vanilla Tegra device would be awesome. Saying that, the LG Optimus 2Gx released on T-Mob US is that, and as it's the same hardware as the 2X, I'm hoping that the XDA lot put 2 + 2 together and make me a Vanilla 2X.
