WifelyMon loves her Evo Shift. Unrooted, it's perfect for her. Light web browsing, lots of texts and emails (lots!
) and a whole lot of yapping on the phone, and she always has gotten well over a full day of use, lots of 3G in that, without a recharge. It's taken a deep swim in the river and if she put it to the floor any more I'd swear she thinks that it's a basketball. She's abused it for nearly two years.
She sometimes uses my phone and still walks away wondering why no slider because the screen is swamped by the keyboard.
If the Shift had been my first Android instead of the Moment or my first HTC instead of the Evo, I would have never lurked here trying to find out how to make my Moment basically work or joined to figure out how to make my first Evo last more than 4 hours.
My point isn't that I disagree about us needing top end models, but rather that we need more variety in the mid-range.
Where is our One V or S or a slider choice besides the Photon Q?
I think hers has just about had its final drop, the speaker at the top is crimped closed and just this week the microphone started getting a little funky. So, it's either a new headset or my 3vo until we see what's next for her lol.
Or my desire for airbags on her next phone!
