Same here, I'm very happy with my phone. I saw my son with his new S3 yesterday and he felt the Evo had the better camera of the two. He also said he burns through his battery pretty fast and he's a pretty light user so I'm not sure what he's doing wrong, lol I turn wifi/mobile data off when I'm not using them and my battery usually lasts me the whole day.

Love it. Don't regret not waiting for the S3. Do wish Sprint would get with the network fixin' though.

No complaints from my battery. I'm currently at 51% with off battery for 5hrs and 21min and on screen time of just under 3hrs, I'm a heavy user. Just hard to guage the forums as it only seems ppl post about their problems but for some reason I'm missing the EVO

Default LTEVO has been amazing!

After having the phone for awhile now and putting it thorough it's paces. I have had no regrets upgrading from OG EVO. Except for the Google Wallet debacle, which was not that big of a deal for me. IMHO, feature for feature LTEVO ranks as one of the best phones money can buy, if not the best! LTEVO has been amazing.

Regardless of what hiccups the updates of Jelly Bean (JB) might bring to this phone - its still my first pick over the Samsung Galaxy s3.

Build and Personalization is what put this device in a class by itself.

Sometimes the most popular is not the best. I appreciate the metal frame build also. I tried the S3, and prefer the EVO. I wish the marketing were there to tell the world how good this phone is, and how much better it is with 4G service available now.

Default Love it, with only one change

Love it, thought I might want the S3 or Note 2, but after researching both, I am thrilled with it after owning it since May 2012.

Thought the non removable battery would scare me, but no problem. What I do not like is the awkward placement of the power charging receptacle. It makes the phone incompatible with many Android speaker charging docks, which is why I wanted the S3 briefly. Love everything about the Note 2 until you talk on it...you look like you're holding a brick to your head.

I just got mine...adjusting things to my preference. The touchscreen was a little bit too sensitive for me - so I adjusted the zoom & double tap settings inside accessibility.

Other than that...what else I need to know - I'm hoping its posted inside our EVO 4G LTE forum.

P.s. I was thinking of getting the Note 2 ...but after playing around this big 4x7" display, I am more than satisfied with its screen size.

Default Phone was a beast, then...

Love everything about it until Jelly Bean update. Now, like many of us, my Google Maps Navigation is broken. Any word on when a fix is going to happen? Best alternative GPS? I depend on navigation as I travel for months at a time for work.

Also, my battery life is still good, but not as good as before the update. Before JB, the battery life was insane (keep in mind...I came straight to this from EVO 4G, so I am used to having a phone plugged in a lot!) Still lasts me all day easy, even after JB update.

My OG Evo finally gave up about a week ago(battery) so I finally decided to use the LTE which I have had for some time now. Is an ok device but would still prefer the OG. I have a few problems with the LTE that are rapidly becoming a big turn-off:

1)Keyboard/Soft-key placement. I never had any problems on the OG typing but with the LTE I am constantly pegging a Soft-key(normally Home) when I am typing. Don't know why it's different but definitely harder for me to type on this thing.
2)Software Design: I am a person who likes ease-of-use. The fact that I now must use 2 hands when doing things like Menu or Settings is really annoying.
3)Size: I am all for having a decent size screen but it's becoming to much. Bigger isn't always better and this one has reached that point. It's a little big for my tastes.
4)Ports: Don't get the thinking behind having a kickstand and then putting Charge Port on one side and Camera/Volume on the other. Is kinda like saying " Like the kickstand? Figure out how to use it!".

There are things though that I do like. Battery life is great but could be because I don't use it as much as I did my OG. Where they put the kickstand is better than on the OG. Camera is better/clearer and Burst is cool.

All-in-all I can't say I hate the device but not sure with the design they are doing that my next will be HTC.

Just like anything we do, it takes time to get use to something different.

In time...you'll find that this bad boy is not as different than its family member OG Evo 4G.

Different phone generations.

You will feel that way with any phone that is over a year old when compared to the current flagship.

Evo 4g to evo 3d, evo 3d to evo 4g LTE, evo 4g LTE to the htc one, and on down the line

I miss the form factor, the kick stand and the weight advantage of the LTE. If they will stuff a new processor and updates into the old machine, I'll be back. There was nothing wrong with how it worked, but the battery got weak and I'm moving on. Still find the 4G LTE a fine piece. My wife will use hers for a long time to come (and she has had hers longer than mine).

I believe my father in law is going to use my LTEvo, and retire his Gnex. I'm kind of reluctant to give it to him, still attached to the little rascal. It's an awesome phone, still love it.

Replaced the battery on the wife's LTEVO yesterday, 2+ years of charging take their toll. For $9, it should extend the phones useful life at least until we (probably) dump Sprint later this summer.
