Question HTC EVO Design 4G (Boost) or HTC Evo V 4G (Virgin)?

With the recent announcements of both of these phones coming out at the end of this month with a price tag of $299, I am suddenly faced with a tough decision...which one should I get?!?!

Right now, I currently have the ZTE Warp from Boost and I am extremely disappointed with it. It randomly freezes & restarts on a regular basis and I can't take it anymore!!!

If anybody has owned either one of these phones on Sprint, I would definitely appreciate any feedback.

NOTE: The HTC Evo V 4G for Virgin Mobile was the HTC Evo 3D on Sprint.

If you want a fast phone, get V 4g its dual core compared to Designs single core.

Yeah, I did notice that. Is there really a big difference between single core & dual core?

Yes when your trying to listen to music while browsing n texting its slow with a single core, while dual core its doesn't slow down or if it does its every little

Now that I just found out about the upcoming Voyager Mobile service, I might just have to add another phone to this comparison thread. To be honest, Samsung's Epic 4G Touch (heading to Voyager) kills both of these phone hands down!!

Not really... bigger screen so.it dies faster (also has 400x800 to 540x960 pixals on Evolution). Slightly bigger battery. And better camera....that's all, blows the Boost not Virgin

Well, not that I've finally seen what Voyager has to offer (their website is back up), I've decided that I'm passing on them. I phone that I want from them looks awesome, but that price is ridiculous!!! Plus, it won't even come with ICS. ...smh...

Having said that, it's back to choosing between Virgin & Boost (who will have ICS with both of their phones and pretty much cost half the price). I think I have already made my decision. Due to the Evo V having a dual core processor, 3D capabilities, and 4.3 inch screen, with everything else being the same, it looks like I'm going back to Virgin.

Has anyone had the chance to have both of these, or done a comparison, since the last post?
I'm leaning towards the EVO V myself, but don't particularly like the idea of being throttled? That dual core processor though is the one major plus.

I have the Evo V and I absolutely love it.
I'm pretty sure the 4G isn't throttled though.

Yea, I'm afraid so. Virgin Mobile throttles after 2.5 gigs, at least according to their web site.
