      I'm on there, not as much these days since the Desire forum went quiet and Paul moved onto 'better' devices - tend to live on XDA these days

      That's very true. He's always been the same though, once a new device comes out, straight onto that. He's constantly buying one device sim free and then flogging a pretty new device.

      I've only got a San Fran to dabble with some Android stuff. Tempted by one of the newer dual core phones though.

      Yeah, altho I'm not due an upgrade til next year I might get either an SGS2 or Sensation (once the SIM free handsets are out - don't want any of this Vodafone crapware on it!!)

      Was tempted to get a San Fran as a spare phone - any good?

      SGS2 looks amazing. The Sensation is slightly lesser spec. Guess it depends if you prefer Sammy or HTC. The Atrix looks good, as does the LG Optimus 2x.

      Hmmm my background was a few WinMo handsets, and then I got an iPhone. I got the San Fran as an excuse to see how good Android really was. My email domain is hosted with Google Apps, and so Android seemed a good idea. I used it as a my work handset for quite some time until they provided me with a blackberry.

      So for a while it was a phone without a purpose. It's the original San Fran with the Amoled screen, which Ive put a 2.2 rom onto. It's an awesome handset.

      At present it's sat on my desk doing nowt other than on charge. When I moved house, before Sky BB was installed, I was using a Three MiFi ... but with constant use, the batter gave up the ghost. I chucked the mifi sim into the San Fran and turned on the Personal Hotspot. I was brilliant, needed rebooting about once a week. It actually has faster upload via 3G than my Sky Unlimited does!!!

      Once the iPhone 5 is out, I will really have some serious thinking about whether I want to keep my investment in the huge number of apps I've bought from the App Store, or whether I move to android. There's very little keeping me with apple at present.

      Never been a fan of Sammy handsets, and the battery cover on the S2 just fills me with dread! Always been an HTC fan so think the Sensation is where I'm looking but the locked bootloader is a bit off-putting. Hopefully HTC are going to go back on this at some point so that'd be good

      Same here ... sammy has a lovely screen. But the rest I can do without. The HTC wins all round for me, apart from locked bootloader.
