My last HTC phone was the Evo3D for all of 3 or 4 days; maybe less. That phone felt nothing like an original Evo upgrade.
Motorola Photon was next and that also got a bad rep because of Motos propensity to lock bootloaders.
After that it was the iPhone 4S/Samsung E4GT. I opted for the touch. Prior to that the last Samsung phone I had must have been back in '01... That's a LONG time ago.
I was completely pleased with the E4GT (plastic and all) and never had any of the issues other people had.
