Right now my wife and I have HD7s on Tmobile US. Our phones are crapping out and are looking at upgrading both of them. I am thinking the Radar personally, I have never been one for Nokias. Pet peeve I guess. My wife is having trouble deciding. Any suggestions? I know the downgrade of hard drive from my current 16gb and I am ok with that. I travel alot and use outlook for work so I need one that will work for what I do and take a beating a little bit too. I also have like 17 xbox live games on my hd7 and want to keep up my gaming.
Thanks in advance.

I'm not sure of the "Lumina" you speak of (heh!), but the Lumia 710 is a pretty sweet little device. My wife got one yesterday and she is enjoying it so far. She doesn't do any gaming, and neither do I, so I can't make any comment on games. Though, if you're wanting to do gaming, the Lumia 710 is probably not the best choice as its battery is a good bit smaller than the Radar's.

I recommend the Radar. Best battery life of all WP, ffc for tango calls/skype (when it comes out) and its processor is the same as your hd7 (and mine) but it has an upgraded gpu, so games should run fantastic. The only advantages the 710 have are the clear-black screen, with its excellent direct sunlight visibility, and the Nokia apps. (Drive, ESPN, etc)

Did you have a problem with a Nokia device in the past? If so, was it highend or lowend Nokia device?
I was Palm guy for many years. I saw videos of the Nokia N8 and decided to give Nokia a try. The N8 is a great phone. I am impressed with Nokia now.
I am waiting now for a the Lumia 900. Myself I would go for the Lumia 710. The Radar also looks like a nice device.

I picked the Radar due to the build quality. I didn't want a phone that was mostly plastic, so the medal like shell of the Radar is great. I also prefer the capacitive WP buttons compared to the physical buttons of the Lumia. Both do have their advantages though, I just haven't had a chance to use a Lumia yet so I can't give an opinion on that device.

I have played with both and prefer the Lumia 710. I think FFC are a gimmick, I never use them. Screen looks nicer on the Lumia. Nokia apps (particularly Drive) are better than the HTC apps. That is what would sway me to the Nokia.

Well Tmobile screwed up. They said they wont replace my phones and if they do I have to pay a charge. The signal has been crappy and all so I switched. I am getting an HD7S from ATT for 1 penny and my wife is getting a Samsung Captivate for a penny as she always liked Android more, its a good phone for a great price. Cant argue with her is you know. I liked my HD7 and the better screen on the S will be worth the penny.
Now if I was to not want the HD7S, whats an equvialent on ATT, as I have 30 days to exchange it for another device according to the reps I talked to. I know the Titan but I am not dishing out 200 bucks for a phone like my HD7 in size even though it is more powerful. Would I be better off waiting till my upgrade to get the Titan II or whatever else comes out in the future?
Does anyone know how to transfer saved games? I just got the Porshe 911 GT3 RS unlocked on NFS Hot Pursuit and it took forever to unlock and dont want to lose it. And of course my Bug Village.
Thanks for the excellent feedback.
and FYI on the Nokias, they were older Nokias before smartphones. So I could say that I am not comparing apples to apples so I am open to suggestions.

Edit: There's no way of transfer game saves that I know us. So I lost all my progress in Fruit Ninja and Angry birds. Some of those Angry Birds levels got beaten by pure luck so I haven't touch the game again :(
You are in the best carrier now. The HD7s will hold you off fine until march when this bad boys come out.
HTC Titan II

I really like my Radar. I'm on the monthly 4G plan. I like the FFC and use it with Tango to video call my parents with my son. He loves seeing his grandparents instead of just hearing them.
Nice build quality, good call quality, nice 4G speed.
