You aren't getting official ports of it though so it probably isn't even nearly as good as it is on a supported phone.

Personally, I love my HTC desire (not HD) to bits, it does everything I want it to and it has a very large dev base behind it(unlike the galaxy phones, sure the nexus S is helping but its still not beating HTC phones). I say get the desire HD/Z, they both have lots of dev support and they are lovely phones(I hate the way the samsungs feel).

Of course it is your choice, and if the galaxy looks like a better option, go for it

Why is Cyanogenmod the 'worst rom' ever?

I would wait for the Galaxy S II. Just hang on to your iPhone 4 for a couple more months.
I agree with this guy . Ive owned the Desire HD and the Iphone 4 you really wont gain anything over the Iphone 4 besides more customization , because its a android phone.

Compared to my HTC desire? Last time I checked the desires dev support was far superior to the galaxy... that was a while ago though, did the nexus S really make that much of a difference?

Probably another one of those guys who flash a Nightly Build and complain about its stability.

In other news.. CM7 Stable was released 30 minutes ago.

There are too many people who judged CM7 on the nightlies, their the equivilant of alphas and the RC's are betas.


Good to hear its finally out of the RC's, shame I don't use CM (I prefer oxygen although 720p video recording may pull me in).

You'd be surprised just how stable the nightlies are compared to the RC's sometimes.

I've owned a Samsung Moment which had a AMOLED screen and it was amazing compared to my Evo's screen but the size difference is worth not having an AMOLED screen. I don't know how good the Galaxy S support is but the Samsung Epic(Galaxy S phone) has good support over at SDX-developers

CM7 is decent but I like MIUI more, once I got rid of HTC sense my battery last a lot longer.

CyanogenMod 7 is the only Gingerbread ROM available for my device. A lot less developer's support compared to other devices like the Nexus One and Desire.

It's definitely better than the stock ROMs though.

Yeah, I totally agree.

The first CM7 ROM I flashed was RC2 and that clocked my CPU to 100% 24/4. I quickly did a Nandroid backup back to CM 6.1.

When RC3 was out, I read some posts on XDA saying they couldn't get past the HTC Logo so I decided to flash Nightly #32 instead and it's been working beautifully.

For the most part though, Nightlies should be good enough for every day use.
