Tongue Loving the EVO (Praise thread) :-)

Well I am officially on day 32 of owning my evo so I am past the point of no return. I could not be happier with this phone and hope to have a long and fruitful life with my precious. I was nervous about changing over to sprint but I could not be happier with the service I am getting. I just wanted to post a positive post for once as it seems their is so many nit picky negative posts on here and for once I wanted to let people know that there are some completely satisfied customers out there.

X2. When I was still in my first 30 days, I actually considered switching for the Epic. Not that I had any problems with my Evo, It has been wonderful, but because that's just how I am. I buy simething, and then I wonder if I should have bought something else. I am so glad that I resisted the urge..... I have a feeling that had I switched to the Epic, that I would now be mad at myself for leaving my beloved Evo. I am 100% confident that I made the correct choice.

Yea I'm on day 32 as well and its been great, although I've been with Sprint for 2 years now. The Evo is a great device, just loving everything I can do and discovering new stuff everyday... or every other day

Keep it coming people let's actually praise the merits of this phone as to me it is a technical marvel that htc has given us. I actually use mine for everything as I don't have a laptop and I get along just fine without one.

OP: I think you made a wise choice... the EVO and Sprint is really hard to beat. One of the best phones out, even 6mos after launch! And its really hard to beat Sprint.. good network, GREAT pricing!

Default Still at the top!!

I paid full price for both of my EVOs at launch. I do not regret it one bit. One of the good things about paying full price was that I was up for an upgrade on October 1. The only problem is that there is no other phone I would rather have and there is nothing really in the pipe that I have heard that will make me think about changing devices. I know when this phone came out, some of the reviewers used the term "future proof". The tech community recoiled at the term and it's use for any device. Yet here we are, 5 months after launch and this is still the phone to have and Sprint is still basically getting the same price for it. 5 months is an eternity in this business. Anyway, what an incredible device. And now that I am dabbling in the rooting stuff, the phone is new all over again. Anyway, love this thing.

I agree, I never been one to have the latest and greatest immediately. I felt like when I got my Hero last year although I loved it I saw numerous other Android coming out that simply looked better spec wise and w/ cosmetics just 2-3 months after owning my Hero. But with the Evo I still feel like there's nothing topping it.

I switched from AT&T and paid some hefty early termination fees to switch to Sprint and get a good android phone without the need for special unlocks or other software to install apps that I want and need. I have to say dumping AT&T and their crappy service and phones was the best thing I did. Buying the Evo was another good decision and I have to say I still like it and I am one of those people that gets tired of the bugs of the phone really fast.

Same here, dumping ATT for Sprint. I had mines for over a month, then now my bf has one, and I got 2 more, one for the brother and mother. Im going to pay a heavy early termination fee for all 4 of those lines alone.

I switched from T-Mobile a month ago. Best phone, and probably the single best electronic device I have ever owned. There is absolutely no task I can't complete with this device.

P.S. You can avoid the early termination fee by doing a change of responsibility with most carriers. You just have to find someone to buy your current contract, try using craigslist of a phoneswapping site.

I agree too I thought twice before joining Sprint because I travel to Europe and Asia. I solved that problem with the old blackberry which I unlocked for 5 bucks and now I enjoy my Evo while in the United States and work with the blackberry when outside. Evo one of the best phones I have come in contact with in a very long while. Moding, installing apps from 3rd party sites and multimedia has been great. Great phone -everything in one

I also ditched ATT for Sprint just to get the Evo. Well actually, I planned on coming to Sprint anyways because they have a much cheaper unlimited plan. With ATT, all you get is unlimited talk and all. Data plans is extra. But the Evo made me switch faster. And I could not be happier with my service, phone or customer service.

I played around with my cousin's new Iphone and that thing feels so juvenile compared to the Evo. Can not customize unless you jailbreak. There is no uniqueness to it. I still feel 5 months later, no phone is topping the Evo overall. And good thing for us, Sprint and HTC is still advertising the heck out of it on tv. Even more than the new Epic. That means they will still give us the latest updates and all.

This was my first smartphone and I used to think I just need a phone to talk and text and that is it. Well now that I have this, no way I could go back to a "dumbphone".

I just had a friend of mine pick up my phone and go oh god why is it so heavy is it a laptop or something and I said exactly it is just like a little laptop. Also on engadget I just read about the archos android device which is basically a android version of an ipod touch so you know that with devices like that the games and apps for android will only keep getting better. Also developers don't have to kiss apples ass or play by their rules to get their games out there, and I forcast that the market is really going to pick up steam.

I'm just glad that Android is doing so well mainly the Evo, I felt like Sprint wouldn't ever get a real flagship phone for so long. They had other but they just didn't cut it and the marketing was lackluster. The Evo is here to stay. When you think AT&T, you think iPhone. When you think Sprint, you think EVO 4G

Ya they probably have sold 9000 in LA alone. If the iphone 4 have moved close to a million units then I imagine there is close to 100000 evo's out there, plus it has been reported that for Q3 sales android has about 43% of the market.

Default The EVO is heaven

I am not sure how I dealt with the HERO for almost a year. The Hero is the biggest piece of shit. The EVO is everything I ever wanted in a phone. I am in love. HTC thank you for my EVO.

Talking Still Happy

I haven't been on here in a long time...well because I really have not had the need to be... I have been very happy and Satisfied with my launch day Evo... and it is the best phone I have ever owned, and for the first time I dont have an itch nor a desire to go out and purchase a new phone...this has never happened to me before I used to buy 1-2 phones every year...

Personally no phones that have been announced yet(except for maybe the Optimus 2x) are that far superior to the Evo that makes me want it...I am really hoping Sprint can get a stock Android phone in 2011, Sense is cool and All, but I really wouldnt mind stock, or atleast give us the option to use the stock launcher like they did before they removed it...

Other than that I cant wait for a decent android tablet to come out...Maybe that Motorola tablet that Andy Rubin had...it looks sweet...

Oh well just came by to say...I am still happy

I also came from ATT and the Iphone 4 and don't regret it at all. My only complain is the battery life, other than that everything on this phone rocks. Also Sprint is rock solid here in Portland, no droped calls and 4g overall accessible almost anywhere.

I love my evo. I came from Blackberry and the first Motorola Droid. The evo is a very capable device and is so much better since I rooted it. Its basically a full fledged laptop in my pocket.

Agree, again and again. Looking back to my iPhone, I have no idea how I used that compared to what I have now with my EVO. And for Sprint, I couldn't be happier. Never thought I would ever have good experience dealing with a carrier. Service and support have been outstanding.

Now, about getting that 4G service where I live...

I agree I do so much with this device its not even funny. Browsing, to games, to calls and "staying connected"... all on a fast device with generous screen space.

picked my evo on launch day and I have loved every minute of owning it


the thing I need to decide on is what to upgrade my wife to. we left at&t about 2 years ago now. we both got instincts, she ended up hating it and we were already out of the 30 day period. I thought it wasn't great but there wasn't anything else I cared for so I kept mine. we used an early upgrade for her and moved her to a blackberry curve.

It feels like she has been stuck with that old ass phone forever now. and she won't be eligible for an upgrade until april. she does have a 75$ credit for upgrade now though.

thing is sprint usually releases a new flagship early summer yeah? so do we wait and see or just maybe go get her an evo now for christmas.

I want her to get something new as I feel like she really got the short end of the stick with our move to sprint. Her phone works ok, just its a quite outdated feeling.

pull the trigger or wait... hmmmm

EDIT: phones aside we couldn't be happier with our move to sprint

Pull the trigger there is always something new coming out. You could wait forever, this is a great phone and sounds like for sure to get gingerbread. Why wait Santa. I had a blackberry before the evo but this is the best phone I have ever owned. I have be with sprint for going on 10 years now, they have been overall pretty decent to deal with. I can't see going anywhere else.

My wife has the epic and I got the evo with plans to try it out for 30 days and decide if I wanted to keep it or not. After a week when I pick up her phone to update it I can't believe I ever considered it. The evo is a great phone...

Great thread here, just wanted to add to the satisfaction of Sprint and the Evo 4G. I read and heard about how bad Sprint was, etc... Having said that, I wish I wouldn't have waited so long to make the switch. Like a lot of others in this thread, I switched from AT&T and it's horrible spotty coverage.

I've only had my Evo since December 3rd, but I'm quite impressed and yes at first I wasn't sure I should buy this phone, but as previously mentioned in this thread, with technology there's always something coming out so if you wait you'll continue to wait and never get to enjoy anything. So I got the Evo and haven't looked back. Besides, I can upgrade every year if something better comes out. For me the only thing that could be better would be the same form factor with better battery life and perhaps a higher screen resolution.

If anyone is on the fence, just get the Evo, there's a great community on here and it's still a great device, Sprint/htc has really stepped up their game.

Best phone I've ever had (and I've had over 30 [was in the industry]).

Best service I've ever used (aside from the old Cingular service, before AT&T took them over and ruined it).

My iPhone drops at least 2 calls a day, every day. Since I've been on Sprint (over a year), I've had a grand total of 2 dropped calls total.

There's another thread about which phone to buy after the Evo. Right now, I can't imagine a phone being much better than what I already have.

This is the best phone i have own,it does everything. I remember when i started to see the reviews on the EVO coming out, my wife was do an upgrade so i told her to just wait a few months and boy was it worth the wait. This is the first phone i have seen my wife played with so much and never put it down.I just got mine last month and this is the first phone i feel i can go a few years with,unless something awesome comes out.

Just made the switch from a Palm Pre (my first smart phone) to an Evo last week. I'm loving this thing. I've been playing with it, installing apps and tweaking it non-stop. It's so fast compared to the Pre! Unfortunately, I've made my wife jealous (she has a Moment... hella slow compared to the Evo) and now she wants a new phone too...

My girlfriend has a Moment too, which she picked out herself because she wanted a keyboard and the Epic wasn't out yet. She always asks to use my phone to look up stuff and I tell her to use her own

I've been with Sprint and Evo for 6 months now. I <3 my Evo! Absolutely rocks. I use it so much I have to charge it multiple times a day. Sprint coverage has been fine and they recently upped the 4G coverage by my work. I downloaded the new Fresh ROM in a minute over 4G. Thanks Sprint!

Default But the screen is JUST TOOOOOOOO BIG!!!

Not necessarily important, but hilarious to me nonetheless. It seems that most or at least a boat load of the new phones revealed at CES this week have a 4.3 inch screen on them. Most seem to be at least 4.0 inch screens.

Why am I laughing? I'll tell you why, back in April, May, and June just before the EVO came out and then when it launched, there were countless HTC Incredible fans in here telling us how HUGE our screens were and since, I have heard jokes ranging from me pulling out my "IPAD", to questions of how it fits in my pocket.

I'll say this.... Bigger screens are the future. I wouldn't want to go much bigger than the 4.3" screen on the EVO, but I can tell you for sure, I'll never go smaller. I have loved every last inch of my screen for the 6+ months I've had it.

Interesting, how times and perspectives change things.

ROCK ON EVO! From what I've seen, I'm still going to be carrying one of the top of the line phones.

yes.. I agree...

and remember Steve Jobs.. saying.. who wants a big screen..

my bet... he will have to do some of that magic marketing within 2 yrs. and back track that statement. because I think the iphone will have to get bigger to match the market demand. I think it will be 4"...

I think I want my next device to be no smaller than 4.5"... I think a good size would be 5" like the Dell Streak. I think this is ideal for me because as of right now, I really don't want to buy the expensive tabs out there but I want some of the functionalities from a tab out of my smartphone. So for me, its the perfect balance between the two.

i think... the evo physical size is as big as it needs to be, maybe a 1-2 mm bigger in all directions... without being.. boreline silly for phone.

what ever screen size they can fit in that .. will be great.
so.. a 4.7'ish screen with the retina resolution would be perfect.

Left the iPhone and AT&T for the EVO and Sprint. Besides being on my second EVO due to the USB port separating from the motherboard on my first, I couldn't be happier with it.
